Greetings everyone! I'm Alicia, and I've been a proud member of the HeadStart team since October 2018. As I embark on my tenth year of teaching, I'm filled with enthusiasm for the exciting journey that lies ahead. My teaching experience has traversed diverse landscapes, from my home country of South Africa to the Middle East and various parts of Thailand. I studied to become a teacher at the University of Pretoria; gaining a Bachelor of Education degree. Following two years of teaching ICT in South Africa, I ventured into the world of international education, spending the past nine years as a homeroom, IT, ICT, and IB MYP Digital Design Teacher. My commitment to excellence drives me both personally and professionally, as I strive to ensure exceptional practices and outcomes for both myself and my students. With an unwavering passion for my subject, I bring a wealth of knowledge to the classroom and deliver it in engaging and captivating ways. My teaching style is characterized by its stimulation, enthusiasm, and unwavering dedication. I possess a natural talent for building strong connections with my students, and my approach, grounded in differentiation, challenge, humour, and happiness, has consistently yielded swift progress and positive results. As well as being a passionate teacher, I also have a love for sports and fitness. I love training in a range of physical activity; including hiking, weight-lifting, team sports and coaching. With this, I have played provincial hockey for my country and also represented an established Emirates rugby team while living in Dubai. I currently play for clubs all around the world and train at Unit 27. I look forward to continuing touch rugby with the staff and students this year. As we approach the upcoming academic year, I am excited to reconnect with familiar faces and extend a warm welcome to all the new students. My time at HeadStart and in the captivating surroundings of Phuket fills me with joy, and I'm thrilled to be a part of this remarkable community. Here's to an inspiring 2023 ahead—let's make it extraordinary!
