Jake Stiff

Year 2 (Yellow) Homeroom Teacher
[email protected]

Hello and sawadee krap! My name is Jake Stiff and I grew up in Kent, South East England. I will be starting my first year at HeadStart this year, in Year 2 Yellow. Prior to moving to Thailand and teaching internationally, I taught at a school in Bexley for 4 years. During my time there, I taught Year 2 and Year 5 and enjoyed the contrasting dynamics of these age groups. My experience so far has taught me the value of establishing a learning environment based on mutual respect and kindness. Within the school setting, I aim to promote a love of music and enjoy seeing children explore the skill of learning a musical instrument. I look for opportunities to incorporate this passion into a range of educational contexts and as my ukulele survived the long flight from England, it will be incorporated into Year 2 Yellow throughout the year! Outside of school, I enjoy running and I succeeded in completing the London Marathon 2023 in aid of a UK-based charity. I also enjoy playing football and find it incredibly rewarding to play as part of a team. My classroom will be a calm space which encourages collaborative discussion and challenges pupil’s thinking. I always set high expectations and support the children in achieving their full potential. At the centre of my teaching values is for all children in my class to feel safe, respected and happy when coming to school as I feel that this encourages them to become the most successful learner that they can. I am looking forward to teaching Year 2 this year and will always be happy to answer any questions that you may have. Thank you.
