My name is Nick Carter and I am from Brighton, in the UK. I came to Thailand in 2015, after 6 years of living and teaching P.E. in Stockholm, Sweden (where it snows for six months of the year!). So, it is fair to say that I was ready for a completely different climate change, as well as cultural change. My sporting background is very diverse. I grew up with a passion for playing football, but later, in my teens, I discovered baseball. I made my debut for the Great Britain national baseball squad at the age of 18 and played with the squad for the next 14 years. I also trained as a professional contemporary dancer and toured nationally and internationally for 7 years in numerous dance companies. Although I have many other sporting interests, I want to make it clear that P.E. teachers are not just whistle blowing, basketball bouncing individuals, as I released my first fictional novel (in June, 2015). However, participating in sport, physical activity, and leading a healthy lifestyle are very important to me, and I have enjoyed imparting my knowledge in teaching and coaching environments for over 20 years. I am delighted to be a member of HeadStart’s P.E. department and I am also extremely happy to be the new House Coordinator; a role which I take on with enthusiasm and unwavering passion. Moving to the new school site in August 2016 (with all the wonderful new sporting facilities) has allowed the P.E. department to deliver a much richer and more diverse Physical Education program to the students. For example all secondary year groups (7, 8, 9, 10 and 11) will participate in the following sports activities – Basketball, Football, Softball, Athletics, Swimming, Badminton, Volleyball, and Gymnastics (amongst others).
