Hello and Sawadee ka! My name is Annie Cusworth and I am Homeroom Teacher for Year 1, Phase Leader for KS1 and Science Subject Coordinator for Primary. I joined HeadStart in 2017 and thoroughly enjoy working at the school. I have an Undergraduate Degree in Social Anthropology and a Postgraduate Certificate in Primary Education. Prior to moving to Phuket, I taught for four years at a Primary School in England. I really enjoy and value my role as a teacher and take a great pride in ensuring that all pupils in my care receive the support, encouragement and challenge to reach their full potential. Making sure that my learning environment is stimulating and engaging is an important part of my practice and I take time to make sure that children feel safe and secure in their classroom. In my classroom, learning activities are fun and creative and motivate my pupils. Developing pupil independence and confidence in their own abilities to solve problems is central to our role as educators and I work hard to encourage pupils to be resilient by teaching them to keep on trying and never give up! I am very much looking forward to this next academic year. If there is anything you wish to talk to me about please come to see me. Thank you and khob kun ka.
