Ellen Richards

Reception Teacher (Rec Leopards)

I have always loved children and come from a family of teachers. During my time at college I began volunteering regularly in schools and with other children’s organisations and soon set my heart on becoming a teacher myself. I particularly enjoy working with young children and graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Education (Hons) in General Primary with an Early Years specialism. During my time at university I worked in five different settings with children from 6 months old up to Year 2. Alongside my course I spent my university years working at play schemes during the holidays, with Girl Guides and also as a telephone counsellor with the UK children’s charity ChildLine.

Before arriving at St. Andrews International School Bangkok, I spent a year working as a Nursery teacher at our sister Nord Anglia Education school in Guangzhou, China. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in China and the supportive and friendly work environment there. When I decided to move on from China, my colleagues who knew St. Andrews spoke very highly of the school and encouraged me to apply. They assured me that I would be joining a professional and enthusiastic team and they were absolutely right. I like the school’s inclusive policies and also really enjoy having parents so actively involved in what is happening in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

As I am new to Bangkok, I’m keen to see the sights as well as travelling further afield across Asia in the holidays. In my free time I enjoy all sorts of crafts, reading, swimming and eating good food!
