Robert

Year 4 Teacher

I joined BCB and Nord Anglia this year, and although I have taught English in Japan before, this is my first experience of teaching primary abroad. It is an exciting time to join the school, as we can now access courses and chat with colleagues around the world on the Nord Anglia website. 

 

I studied Drama at university in Bristol, England. My course focussed on the practical elements of acting and directing, as well as reading and analysing plays from around the world. Although I am not able to apply what I learnt about Shakespeare in Year 1, I certainly draw upon elements of performance in the classroom every day! 

I have spent over ten years working in primary schools now; including roles as an EAL Co-ordinator and Computing Lead. Most of this time has been in Year 1, but I have also spent some years teaching Year 2 and 3. My previous school was in a particularly deprived area of London, but the children made excellent progress and we were recently delighted to be graded 'outstanding' by Ofsted. 

Outside of school, I enjoy playing and watching football, listening to music, playing the guitar and reading. I also enjoy writing children's books but I am yet to land a million pound book deal and follow in the footsteps of JK Rowling! Having said that, I feel privileged to be a teacher and have so much fun working with children every day!
