Dan Nicholson

Year 5 (Yellow) Homeroom Teacher
[email protected]

My name is Dan Nicholson and I am originally from Grimsby, in the North East of England. I have lived in Thailand since 1999 and so I now consider it to be my second home. I began my international school teaching career as an Early Years teacher in Bangkok. After five years in the capital, I moved to Pattaya, where I worked for five years as an Early Years teacher and a further seven years as a Primary Year 2 teacher. I completed a BSc with the Open University and then earned a PGCE (International) from the University of Nottingham, while working full-time as a teacher. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge and rewards of teaching pupils from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. I believe in setting high expectations for attainment and behaviour and that a positive attitude to learning is a key component of success. I try to engage children with activities which allow them to build on their existing knowledge and skills and apply them in new and interesting contexts. I think that providing tasks with the right balance of challenge and reward is the key to motivating students and fostering a love of learning. I’m an avid supporter of the English cricket team and an occasional player of the game. I also enjoy hiking, adventure cycling and playing the bass guitar - which I do with more enthusiasm than skill! I’ve been with HeadStart since 2017 and I’m pleased to be part of the school’s continuing growth. I look forward to getting to know both students and parents in the coming weeks.
