Hello and Sawadee ka! My name is Sophie Cunningham and I am Homeroom Teacher for Year 6 Blue. I am excited to be returning to HeadStart as the UKS2 Phase Leader and Maths Coordinator. I worked in HeadStart previously for nearly 3 years and left to take up a Deputy Head’s position in Muscat, Oman. Living and working in Muscat was a great experience however I missed Phuket and Thailand and the wonderful community of HeadStart and am delighted to return. I have been a teacher for many years and have a BA (Hons) degree in Primary Education. Most of my teaching career has been in a high performing school in Cardiff in the UK. Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and I am very proud of my Welsh heritage. When I left the UK, I had the role of Assistant Headteacher predominantly responsible for Key Stage 2. As a professional I recognise individuality in children and will strive to meet the needs of all students and ensure that each child knows they are valued members of my class. I have high expectations of my students and hope to inspire their love of learning. I am committed to creating a safe, challenging, stimulating and positive learning environment. I believe it is important for students to develop skills working both independently and collaboratively and I provide a variety of opportunities for students to develop these skills. I like my learning environment to be vibrant and stimulating and a place that celebrates the students learning. When I was living in Thailand previously, I was lucky enough to visit many places in Asia, including Bali, the Gili Islands, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Singapore. My favourite place is still Thailand, for the people, the culture and, of course, the food! I am looking forward to the new school year ahead at HeadStart, teaching Year 6 Blue and getting to know pupils, parents, and teachers!
