Marvin Deahan

English Teacher, Key Stage 4 Exams Officer

I studied English Literature and Modern History at University in England, and then I qualified as a teacher at Manchester Metropolitan University. I have worked at a number of secondary schools in England, and have also taught English in Istanbul, Tokyo, and the Czech Republic.

 

 

I came to work in Warsaw because I enjoy experiencing living and working in different countries and cultures, and Warsaw was a city I had never been to. I also have Polish ancestors and so was interested on a personal level in making a connection with Poland.

I am also the Examinations Co-ordinator at the school and I find this role to be stimulating and rewarding, in regard to the responsibility it involves. I have found this role to have helped me develop my organisational skills, both in terms of administration and the collaboration it requires with my colleagues.

Highest Quality Learning

I try to integrate HQL techniques into my lessons because I think these methods allow for more collaborative group activities, in which students exchange their ideas on a topic or task, and then devise a plan of how to solve a problem or complete a task. It also helps teachers to cater for the various strengths that different students have. For instance, some enjoy activities with significant amounts of reading and writing, while others enjoy interacting with others in class discussions.

What the students say

‘‘Mr Deahan always tried to make his lessons enjoyable and I like the drama activities we sometimes perform in class.’’

‘‘I appreciate the different kinds of text we study in lessons, and how this gives us a better idea of how to write in different styles and genres.’’
