Sawadee khap! My name is Ben Stephenson and I am the Homeroom Teacher for Year 4 Yellow. Having arrived in August 2020, my first three years at HeadStart were a fantastic, enriching experience and I cannot wait to start at HeadStart again. In 2011, I completed a Bachelor’s Degree in English Language and then trained as a teacher and completed a Postgraduate Certificate of Education. This upcoming year will be my twelfth year as a teacher and my fourth year working outside of the UK. I have been lucky enough to teach in all four years of Key Stage 2 and I thoroughly enjoy working within the Primary phase. My primary focus whilst teaching is to ensure that all of the children in my care feel happy, safe and encouraged. It is my job as their teacher to help them progress and reach their full potential. My classroom ethos is focused around teamwork, challenge and resilience and I do my best to ensure that all of my lessons are creative and fun for all. Teaching is a collaborative process and I am excited to learn from the children as well. I have travelled extensively around the world to explore and to raise money for charity and I cannot wait to continue exploring Thailand and its rich, diverse culture. If there is anything you wish to discuss with me, please feel free to email me to arrange a meeting. Khob khun khap.
