Hello, my name is Fiona Scott and I am very pleased to be joining HeadStart for another year. I am very much looking forward to a fun and exciting year ahead and working with a hard working school community who have high expectations and who are committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning. Since graduating from the University of Edinburgh in 2002, I have taught in a number of Primary schools across Scotland, England and Thailand. During my teaching career, I have taught all year groups in Key stage 1 and 2 as well as teaching across the Early Years. I have held a number of leadership roles, from subject coordinator to Head of Primary in a developing school in Bangkok. I believe that education encompasses developing the whole child; academically, socially and emotionally. Teaching should be fun and interesting as well as motivating and challenging; where all children can develop and thrive. As teachers, we need to ensure that all learning experiences are enriching and rewarding which promotes a lifelong love for learning. Through a creative curriculum approach; a happy and confident child, is a successful one. Since first moving to Thailand in 2006, my family and I are no strangers to the Thai culture and way of life. Both of my children were born in Thailand and are both very happy at HeadStart. They enjoy the range of learning experiences on offer and thrive in the After School Programmes on offer. As a family we all enjoy a range of activities from cycling to swimming to exploring and traveling around such a beautiful and diverse country. This year I will be based in Foundation and am looking forward to getting to know all the new families and supporting the children in their learning journey through HeadStart and beyond.
