Dale Benham

Year 11 Coordinator / Geography Teacher
[email protected]

My name is Dale. I am starting my fifth year at Headstart International School. I started working at HeadStart in 2019. I am from the United Kingdom and grew up in East Anglia in a small market town called St Ives in Cambridgeshire. I studied at the University of Glamorgan, now the University of South Wales, gaining a degree in Physical Geography. I completed my teacher training at the University of East Anglia in Norwich in 2009, earning a PGCE in Geography. I taught in Colchester, which is located in the county of Essex. I taught many children from varying backgrounds and ethnicities in a multicultural school during this time. Six years at this school were spent as a Head of Year to Years 8 to 11. I am passionate about Geography as a subject; I was inspired by my Geography teacher at school, which led me to become a teacher. I am enthusiastic and believe in providing exciting and engaging lessons to all my students. I want them to become independent thinkers, gaining knowledge by learning through their mistakes and making marginal gains in everything they do. I am dedicated to creating a safe, fun, and challenging learning environment where the students are at the center of a positive learning experience. Outside the classroom, I enjoy listening to an eclectic variety of music and watching sports (football and rugby, in particular). I look forward to another positive year for our school and, most importantly, our students, who are a pleasure to teach.
