I am from the United Kingdom, and I am starting my first year working at HeadStart International School. I grew up in a large village called Bebington on the Wirral. After completing my Art Foundation Course in Chester, I chose to study Fine Arts at the University of Wales Institute, Cardiff under the tutelage of internationally renowned performance artist Andre Stitt. After a number of years working in management in the hospitality industry, I decided to change direction in my career and taught English as a foreign language in Wenzhou in The People’s Republic of China. This really ignited within me a passion for teaching, so I returned to the UK to complete my Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the University of Derby. I remained in Derby, teaching at an inner city school for 4 years. I terms of my own personal education philosophy, I am a great believer in methods which peer reviewed evidence suggests are most effective for progress and attainment, for example Singapore Maths and Systematic Synthetic Phonics. In my class the children can expect to work in a safe, fair, and vibrant classroom where we value others and learn more from people in the classroom than from anything else. I am a firm believer in modelling everything that I expect the children to do, such as behavior, respect, written work, enjoyment of learning, creativity, and social skills amongst many others. Outside of school I have deep loves for football, food, and friends. I hope to enjoy each of these things in great abundance in this wonderful country I now call home!
