Hello HeadStart community, my name is Kerrie and I am one of the Secondary Art Teachers, as well as the Pastoral Coordinator for Year 10. This is my second year at HeadStart after moving to Phuket from Bangkok, where I taught for five years. I have enjoyed every minute of being at HeadStart; the students really do make it a fabulous and fun place to be! 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. Usually 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. 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 fortunately our HeadStart community has an abundance of imagination.
