Carla Whitehead

Year 6 (White) Homeroom Teacher / Year Leader / Primary English Coordinator
[email protected]

Hello and Sawadee ka! My name is Carla Whitehead and I come from a small city in the South West of England called Gloucester. My teaching career began in 2010 at The University of Gloucestershire where I completed a BA (Hons) degree in Primary Education. I then went on to teach in a local primary school for six years before deciding to seek an international job to enable me to combine my passions of teaching and travel. I started teaching at HeadStart International School in 2019; I enjoy being part of such a diverse and dynamic team here and have loved immersing myself into life in Phuket. I am an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher with a strong belief that children should be given a wide range of opportunities in order to promote a life-long love of learning. I enjoy looking for ways to encourage self-identity and individuality in the classroom by teaching creatively and I also like to provide as many opportunities as I can to endorse empathy and respect for others and the environment. I love children’s literature and I take great pleasure in sharing books and stories with my class to enhance their imagination. My classroom is a happy and safe environment where children are inspired to have fun while learning. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy exploring new places, hiking and keeping fit, photography and spending time at the beach. After such a brilliant and rewarding few years at HeadStart, I am really looking forward to this year and getting to know the children and parents of my new class while facilitating a learning environment where all students can fulfil their potential in a fun and engaging environment.
