My name is Rebecca Barker and I am a Geography teacher from the UK. I have a first class degree in Human Geography and am currently in the process of finishing a Master Degree from UCL. Education is my passion and I really enjoy being able to extend my own learning alongside teaching. I studied for my PGCE as part of an organisation called Teach First which works with schools in deprived areas of the UK. This really opened my eyes to some of the issues that young people face, and further strengthened my desire to work in education. I love my subject and am truly dedicated to helping students to learn how to navigate and understand the world. I am looking forward to returning to HeadStart after a fantastic summer traveling through Malaysia and Indonesia. Travel is a great passion of mine and I look forward to going on lots more adventures this year. As well as travel, I have many other passions; last year I took up diving and I now have my advanced qualification. I also love hiking climbing and hope to be able to make the most of all of the exciting landscapes here in Thailand! I am excited to share all of my experiences from the summer and get back to teaching the brilliant students at HeadStart!
