My name is Chris and I am happy to be returning to HeadStart International School for my second year teaching science here. I grew up in North West England and completed my degree in Biochemistry at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Following a year teaching English and Science in Phuket I completed my PGCE in Secondary Science at the University of Manchester. I enjoyed teaching a truly comprehensive cohort of students from all backgrounds during my teaching experience in Manchester and am now delighted to be continuing my teaching career in Thailand. I feel that all young people have a natural curiosity and drive to understand the world around them, which makes teaching science a pleasure. I aim to keep this curiosity and excitement alive in my classroom and strive to make sure that my students see science as something interesting that they can relate to their own day to day lives. My science lessons allow students to explore ideas and discover answers for themselves as much as possible, giving them hands on experience of what it really means to be a scientist. I feel very lucky that I will be able to combine my love of teaching with living in one of my favourite places in the world.
