My name is Hannah Norman and I am from Buckinghamshire, in the UK. I came to Thailand in 2023, with my son ready to embrace a change of lifestyle, culture and to fulfil a dream of living in a warmer climate, where we can paddleboard more often than not. My sporting background is quite diverse, I like to think. I grew up with a strong passion for dance in every form, ballet, tap, modern, national dance and contemporary. I still very much enjoy dance to this day and love to attend street dance, contemporary and barre classes where and when I can. It helps me to keep a healthy body and mind. Another passion is being able to watch professional dancers perform on stage, with the Rambert Dance Company and Sadlers Wells being firm favourites of mine when in London. Although I do have many other sporting interests that revolve around the sea, whether it be on top of my paddleboard or below the surface scuba diving. I of course would not be a PE teacher without experiencing and playing in competitive teams too and have enjoyed being part of netball and football teams but more predominantly basketball, playing as a point guard. It is important for me as a PE specialist to foster a love of learning in the students that I teach. I want them to realise and understand the importance that being active plays in not only maintaining a healthy body but mind too. I am delighted to be HeadStart’s House Coordinator and my aims are for our students to continue to experience a really diverse range of activities, encompassing all curriculum areas, while having lots of fun, working as a team with a smile on their face.
