Year 4 White
[email protected]

My name is Jen Rapkins. I joined HeadStart in August 2018 as the Year 4 White Homeroom teacher after teaching for five years in an international school in Bangkok. My move from the city to the island means I can still indulge my love of travel and scuba diving by continuing to explore the wonders of Thailand, Asia and beyond. Before moving to Thailand in 2013, I was teaching for many years in a middle school in Poole, Dorset in the UK. Despite originally specialising in teaching KS1 in my PGCE, most of my teaching experience since then has been in Years 3 and 4 although I have also taught in Years 5, 6 and even Year 7 French! My passion for teaching has grown with each year and it is my privilege to work with each and every child and guide them along their journey as lifelong learners. I believe that by capturing their interest and imagination through engaging and innovative lessons in a safe and stimulating environment, children will strive to remain resilient, show consideration and be the best they can. In turn, they will effectively develop their abilities to communicate, to collaborate and to think both creatively and critically. As a new academic year starts, I am once again looking forward to getting to know all the children in my class, along with their families, throughout this year.
