Mark Blacklee

Year 1 (Yellow) Homeroom Teacher
[email protected]

Hello, it is great to meet you. My name is Mark and I was born in East Grinstead; however, I spent most of my home life in sunny Worthing, on the South coast of England. I have an undergraduate degree from the Open University, UK. My core units were language and social science. To complement this qualification, I obtained my Postgraduate Certificate in Education from UPHSD. I also have a master degree in education, with a specialisation in English to speakers of other languages from Fort Hays State University. I have lived in Thailand for 10 years and love the lifestyle, also the people. I previously lived and worked in Bangkok, then the Hua Hin area. I have now been on Phuket Island as a Primary homeroom teacher for six years. I joined HeadStart in 2020 and feel privileged to continue working at such an amazing school. I am a very hands-on teacher and strongly believe lots of encouragement is very important for young learners. I always provide lessons with plenty of enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge. I will give my students confidence and support them in every way throughout the year. Hobby wise, I am a keen surfer and kite boarder, also being a registered UK instructor for both the British Kite Sports Association and the British Stand up Paddle Board Association. If I have any spare time I like gardening, restoring old two stroke motorcycles, and not forgetting my fourteen rescue cats to keep me busy. I try to promote a healthy, fun, active lifestyle and believe a positive learning environment is the key to a fantastic year ahead. Welcome to Year 1 Yellow!
