Hello and sawasdee krap. My name is Liam Moore and I will be the Homeroom teacher for Year 1 Blue, Year 1 year group Lead and Phonics Lead. I come from a small farming village in Yorkshire, in the United Kingdom. I have always wanted to teach abroad and this is my first ever teaching position out of the UK. I am so excited to not only be teaching in Thailand but also at Headstart! I studied for my teaching degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, gaining my BA hons in Primary Teaching with Qualified Teacher Status. Prior to moving over to Thailand, I have taught at schools in Bradford, Leeds, Hull and Doncaster, where I have had the opportunity to work in different year groups and take on a range of responsibilities. For past 6 years, I have worked as the subject lead for Science, where I helped write and set up the curriculum from EYFS up to Year 6, ensuring we had an inquisitive, hands-on and challenging curriculum. I love working with children and seeing the journeys they go on both personally and with their learning and seeing them grow in confidence to become independent and resilient learners. I love hands-on and practical learning and I strongly believe children learn best when they are able to experience something first hand. Outside of school, I have a huge passion for sports, mainly badminton and tennis. I have competed across England at badminton and can’t wait to be able to experience playing in one of the top countries in the world for the sport. Welcome to Year 1 Blue!
