My name is Holly Strawbridge and I am looking forward to teaching Early Years at Headstart for the second year. I am from the United Kingdom and grew up in Doncaster. I always knew I wanted to travel and live abroad and Thailand is a wonderful place to do just that. I regularly like to take trips to visit other islands around Thailand. HeadStart’s philosophy is what made me apply for this role, as I believe that inspiring and developing a love for learning in the Early Years provides a strong foundation for every child. In my experience, children learn best in exciting, motivating and imaginative lessons that capture their interest and ensure their engagement. For me, this means working in an environment that not only celebrates children’s academic success, but also nurtures their creativity. When children learn through hands on experiences and play, they are able to develop their confidence, life skills and explore for themselves. By having fun and exploring ideas for themselves, children are able to make sense of their world and thrive. I also believe that a strong partnership between home and school is essential for the wellbeing of the children. Therefore, I look forward to working alongside you to nurture each individual and allow them to achieve their full potential.
