Hello everybody! My name is Alex Chamberlain and I am delighted to be joining you all in Yangon. Prior to joining the British School of Yangon, I have worked across a wide range of international schools from Sri Lanka to Ethiopia, holding various leadership positions in these roles. Ultimately, my passion has always been around teaching and learning – providing students with active, engaging learning opportunities that ignite their interests.
I hold a degree in psychology alongside my PGCE from York. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to engage in some wonderful CPD opportunities including my NPQSL and Safeguarding Lead training. I will be commencing my PhD in September 2024 part-time, exploring behavioural genetics in education: being a lifelong learner is something that I wish to instil in the children I teach. I have taught across all the primary phase and have co-ordinated a range of core and foundation subjects. More recently, I have enjoyed supporting and developing student teachers and ECTs.
Outside of school, I like to be very active and can often be found hiking up a mountain or running. I am very excited to be joining your school and look forward to contributing to its continued development and successes alongside exploring and embracing the rich Myanmar culture.
