Benjamin Salmon

Key Stage 5 Coordinator & French Teacher
[email protected]

My name is Ben Salmon and I have been working at HeadStart International School since 2016. I was born in Paris, France and grew up on the outskirts of the French capital not far from Versailles Castle. I hold an International Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Nottingham as well as a Master Diploma in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from BridgeTEFL. I started my teaching career in 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand and have also lived a year on the Canadian East coast before coming to Phuket. On top of my teaching qualifications, I also hold a Master’s Degree in International affairs. I have a true passion for teaching as well as learning new languages. I intend to continue using this passion to inspire my students. My classroom is always a positive environment where students are free to express themselves, through fun language activities and dynamic expression. I have had the chance to teach both Primary and Secondary schools, and really enjoy what each age group has to bring to the lessons. I am looking forward to make this new academic year an exciting and successful one. This year I will also be taking on the new role of French Coordinator, I will be working closely with the primary French teacher to continue to ensure that the foreign language French program delivered is of quality, as well as consistent throughout the school. Outside of school, I am a very active person and enjoy working out several times per week. I also like to swim, play football and try to go to the beach every weekend. My likes in music include jazz, pop, rock, electro, hip-hop, salsa and more…
