Growing up as the oldest of four boys influenced my competitive spirit from an early age. I am a highly motivated individual and am focused on fulfilling goals and celebrating achievements. Encouraging children to do the same is an ever-present component of my classroom. I joined NAISAK because it is a school that strives for excellence alongside celebrating achievements. This approach to learning encourages confident learners to become global citizens and promotes children to take responsibility for supporting and respecting their peers in their community.
My background in education started back in 2015, graduating from the University of Aberdeen with a MA (Hons) in Primary Education. I recently completed my Masters, writing a thesis on the importance of social inclusion on a child’s learning.
A common question you get asked as a teacher is: If I walked into your classroom, what would it be like? If you walked into my classroom, you would see a student-led, engaging, good-humoured environment. My aim this year, as it is and will be every year, is to promote and develop resilient, respectful and reflective learners. These are integral components needed to be a successful learner as well as the enjoyment of coming to school to learn.
