Hello, my name is Karl Long and I come from a small town called Bromyard in England. I first travelled to Thailand in 2010 for a 2 month holiday. After falling in love with the country, I returned to live in 2011, where I played football for Ubon Ratchthani. Alongside playing I coached young children football and taught English, Maths and Science at Assumption College Ubon Ratchthani. The satisfaction I gained from teaching these young children was incredible and I fell in love with teaching. Finally, and for the first time in my life, I knew what career path I wanted to follow. Once I had decided that I wanted a career in Primary teaching, I knew it was essential for me to return to the U.K and obtain experience in U.K schools, thus familiarising myself with the National Curriculum and current teaching styles. This came through working as a Special Educational Needs (S.E.N) Teaching Assistant, followed by completing a P.G.C.E in Primary Teaching at The University of Worcester. The past two years I have been teaching Year 4 and 5 in Worcestershire and in addition to this gained a M.A in Education. This is the first time I have taught Year 6, so it will be a new adventure that I am looking forward to. My philosophy has always been to ensure that learning is fun and productive for young learners. If they enjoy the learning process, they will retain their enthusiasm for learning as they advance in education. I try to make this happen by being as creative as possible and thinking ‘outside the box’. Furthermore, I understand that each individual has different learning needs and requirements, thereby possibly requiring a slightly different approach to their learning plan. In my spare time I like to keep fit by playing a number of sports and doing lots of running. I like to read spy novels and I am always supporting my favourite football club, Man Utd (I hope this will not be a problem.) In addition to this, I love traveling and so far have been to 41 different countries in my lifetime. I am planning to visit more Asian countries soon and I am keen to share my knowledge and experience of these countries with your children. As I previously said, I am looking forward to this year. Now that I have told you a little about myself, I hope you can visit me and we can get to know each other. I have moved to Phuket with my Thai partner of more than 5 years, so I am lucky to be able to speak some Thai. Please feel free to come and speak to me at any time, so I can answer any questions you may have because my first priority is to ensure your child feels safe and happy in my classroom. I look forward to seeing you.
