Aaron Deary

English Teacher

I started my teaching career in a rural comprehensive school in Essex, where I worked for two years. As well as an outstanding sporting reputation, the school also served as the community’s literary centre and visiting authors of international fame often took to its stage to speak about their inspirations and their work.  A highlight for me was my responsibility  for welcoming the authors and keeping them entertained and distracted before their performance. In my second year, I was responsible for the promotion and instillation of enrichment work for gifted and talented students.

 

I then moved to an inner-London academy with a reputation for strict discipline and excellent results. Whilst this reputation is deserved, I feel the school should be known for the harmonious, international community that fill its corridors. Within my form group alone, between the 27 students, there are 14 different languages spoken and 19 different nationalities represented. Apart from the brief weeks in the year when international sporting events compromise the peaceful atmosphere, the academy’s community helped me realise that international education was where my passion lay.

I’ve always enjoyed playing and watching sport but had my promising career as an international rugby player cruelly and unnecessarily taken from me by a reserve of talent that didn’t match my ambition. Not embittered, I thought it wise to also give books a try and discovered my passion for literature. To this day, these slightly opposing interests keep me happy, entertained and busy.

I’ve yet to define a personal ambition for myself, so, in the meantime, I turn to Dickens, who, in A Tale of Two Cities writes about being ‘happy and useful and good,’ which suits me as it is subjective enough to serve as both a vaulting ambition and a humble creed.
