Hi there, my name is Harry Fleming and I am from the Lake District, England. I studied at Leeds Beckett University for my undergraduate degree in English Literature, before moving to University College Birmingham to complete my PGCE in Primary Education. Before completing my PGCE, I had volunteered in a Year 5 and 6 class, as well as being a tutor for students trying to obtain a GCSE in English. After completion of the PGCE, I received a job at a school in Smethwick, Birmingham, where I had completed a previous placement. I have since been there for two and a half years, where I was not only a class teacher, but a subject leader in physical education.
Ever since deciding to train to become a teacher, I always had a desire to teach abroad. After getting some real experience in England, I am looking forward to using it in such a new and diverse setting. My previous school had a real emphasis on family and togetherness, as well as providing excellent opportunities to progress both as a well-rounded student and teacher. That being said, after researching both Nord Anglia Education, NAISAK and speaking to one of the teachers at NAISAK, I saw a similar attitude when it came to school and all of its aspects.
When I am not working, I enjoy participating in sports such as football, as well as running and going to the gym regularly. I like to participate in charity running events such as half marathons, and hopefully a marathon in the coming year. I’d like to think that this reflects my personality and what I encourage my children to be like - a team player, someone who is willing to try something new or out of their comfort zone, and to try as best as they can to be an even better version of themselves. I am looking forward to joining the NAISAK team and helping to develop enthusiastic and empathetic young people.
