Throughout my education as a schoolboy in Kent I experienced a vast range of teaching styles and levels of commitment and passion from my teachers. It wasn't until I started my A-Level in English language and literature that I realized what a profound impact a passionate and dedicated teacher can have on students. So, having been taught by a truly inspirational man, I decided that I wanted the chance to make a positive impact on the lives of young people.
I worked as curriculum coordinator in the UK, which was a fantastic chance for me to support the older students at school to realize their potential. The main focus of this role was to ensure that students are driven and motivated to achieve, but I also set up volunteering schemes, reward schemes and helped the students to achieve places at the universities of their choice.
Teaching at BISC is a remarkably rewarding experience, as all of the students relish every opportunity to learn and further themselves at every possible chance. All of the staff here are so dedicated to what they do and work with determination and passion to help the students achieve to their full potential. The attitudes of staff and students at BISC create a fantastic environment for learning, in which everyone feels welcome yet challenged. I am proud to work here.
Teaching aside, I am an active person who enjoys playing football (or soccer), riding motorcycles, listening to music, reading, gardening and socializing. As clichéd as it sounds, I am a firm believer in the old idiom "life's too short," so I cram as much into my free time as possible, to make sure that I'm just as active outside of school as I am in it.
