Laura Battson

LBA

Year 1 Teacher

My name is Laura Battson and I am looking forward to joining the Year 1 team and sharing my expertise and passion for teaching among my new colleagues at NAISAK. I completed my undergraduate degree at Roehampton University in 2013 and went on to teach Reception and Year 1 in the South West of the U.K. for four years. My drive to try new things and experience a new culture was ignited through my experience of teaching in an international school in Bangkok; where I taught Year 1 for two years. Teaching internationally enabled me to embrace a new culture and language and having this experience has given me the skills and knowledge to be a great member of the NAISAK community.

I decided to join NAISAK as I endeavour to experience a different culture and explore more countries. The great school community will allow me to develop professionally and progress through my career. As a teacher, I believe in creating a meaningful and inspiring learning environment in which learners can thrive and fulfil their full potential. I promote an open-door approach within my class and I am very much looking forward to forming good relationships with parents within the NAISAK community.

I am always eager to try new things and challenge myself, so I am very excited to live in Qatar. When I lived in the U.K. I enjoyed socialsing with my friends, yoga and shopping. Since moving to Bangkok, I have ignited many other passions and interests. I have loved hiking and camping around Thailand as well as travelling to lots of countries within Asia. I am an animal lover and I am passionate to see animals in the wild. Last Summer, I travelled to Borneo and Nepal where I was lucky enough to see a rhino and an orangutan. Closer to home, I love cats, especially my cat Simba, who lives with my Mum and Sister. I am hoping to use the opportunity of living in Qatar to explore different parts of the world as well as delving into some new hobbies and interests.

I am very much looking forward to working within the NAISAK community as it is full of creativity and diversity; the school always has the children's education at the heart of everything they do and believe that all children should reach their full potential. I have never lived in the Middle East or taught at a Nord Anglia school before, so I am excited to be joining a new community and be a part of the NAISAK team!
