My name is Maddison Carter and I am from Yorkshire, in the UK. I came to Thailand in 2023, after 7 years of living and teaching P.E in different parts of the world including the Middle East and South East Asia. I am a passionate sportsperson and growing up I used to be an elite gymnast, training 30 hours a week! Since hanging up my leotard and moving overseas, I have used sport as an opportunity to meet new people in my host countries as well as push myself out of my comfort zone. This has led me to learning new sports such as Gaelic football and having the opportunity to experience different competitions including play in the Dubai 7s Netball. Although sport is my passion I have a number of other areas of interest. I love to travel and experience different cultures and I am currently trying to learn Spanish! I am delighted to be HeadStart’s Head of PE and my aims are for our students to continue to experience a really diverse range of physical activities, ignite passions and most importantly enjoy being physically active. For example, HeadStart pupils will participate in the following sports activities in either curriculum time or in our fantastic Extra Curricular Activities Sports programme - Basketball, Netball, Football, Rugby, Athletics, Swimming, Badminton, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Softball, Rounders, Yoga, Dance, and Gymnastic activities (amongst others).
