After completing my BEng in Physics and Electronic Engineering at Glasgow University, I taught Physics and Chemistry at a school in Kenya. Drawn by the bright lights of industry, I returned to the UK and embarked on a 15-year research career where I focused on new developments in wireless communication and was granted a dozen patents. Eventually, however, the unique rewards and challenges of working in education drew me back, and I completed my PGCE. I’ve now spent 5 fulfilling years teaching Physics at St. Andrews, where I’ve also been able to apply my technology skills in developing our Moodle virtual learning platform.
I have a young family and I am delighted that my kids will be learning at St Andrews. When I can drag myself away from coding on the computer, I play keyboards in a band and get out on my bike. I’ve always loved to travel, and Bangkok makes a great base from which to pursue this passion.
St. Andrews places a prime emphasis on making the school a happy place for students to learn. This also makes it a great place to teach. I genuinely enjoy coming here every day.
“Mr. Keith is an amazing teacher and I love learning with him because he actually teaches in a way that is understood by everyone and when someone doesn’t understand he takes the time and effort to teach them.”
“Mr. Keith is a very great teacher who actually got me to learn stuff. He makes Physics, a subject I thought would kill me, a fun subject.”
