Hello everyone! My name is Jack McEvoy. This is my first year living in Thailand and I will be the homeroom teacher of Year 6 Blue. Prior to my arrival in Phuket, I have experience teaching Year 2, during my time in Albania, Year 6, whilst in Qatar and, most recently, Year 4, in England. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Plymouth, in the South West of England and subsequently achieved my PGCE from the University of the West of England. It has become immediately evident that Phuket is a beautiful island, due to the scenic mountain views and the incredible beaches, whilst also being home to a truly welcoming and friendly people. It is for this reason that I am certain I will love spending my time here. My reasons for coming to Thailand are two-fold. Firstly, I have been fortunate enough to have travelled to many different countries across Europe, North America, South America and Asia, which has provided me with the opportunity to experience a variety of different cultures and ways of living. I believe this has been essential in allowing me to become a thoughtful, caring and rounded person. Secondly, I have visited Thailand multiple times, with a member of my family living here, and have always considered it a place that I could one day call home. I have already made many wonderful memories in Thailand and living here provides me with a platform from which to make many more. As a teacher, I look to ensure the students in my class are welcomed, engaged and challenged. I aim to provide lessons that are inclusive, supportive and provide every student with the opportunity to succeed. It gives me great pleasure to teach Year 6 Yellow and I am looking forward to us all enjoying a wonderful year together.
