Hello HeadStart community, my names Kerrie and I am a Secondary Art Teacher as well as the Home room teacher for Year 10 Yellow. This is my first year at HeadStart after moving to Phuket from Bangkok, where I taught for five years. I have a First Class Honors BA in Contemporary Fine Art from Northumbria University, where I found my passion for using sculptural materials and ceramics to make art. You can find me somewhere covered in clay! After studying Art, I studied Art in education and received my Postgraduate Certificate in Sheffield where I taught Art and Design, Art Textiles and Resistant materials at KS3 and GCSE. In 2017 I moved to Bangkok to work in a middle school, where I taught and delivered Art for the whole school from Year 1 to Year 9. I then moved on to continue teaching IGCSE and A level. I have thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to teach an array of year groups, each year has inspired the development of my teaching practice. I am passionate that Art can create change, that it builds confidence, creates conversations and harnesses the power of creativity. Not one shoe fits all, Art can be as flexible, fun and accessible as we make it and I am so excited to be working with such a creative community at HeadStart.
