I studied for my degree in Fine Art at a British University and graduated in 2011. In early 2013 I moved to Bangkok to pursue a career in teaching Early Years Foundation Stages. I was at my previous school for two and a half academic years before moving to St Andrews International School Bangkok in 2015. I am now teaching in Year 1 and am House Leader for Akha which has offered a great level of challenge and excitement; I look forward to seeing what the future holds. Prior to moving to KS1, I was working with the wonderful Early Years team led by Ms Meg.
Since being in Bangkok, I have continued to pursue my interest in contemporary art, particularly sculpture. In my spare time I try to visit the Bangkok Arts and Cultural Centre. Although I do not practice sculpture in Thailand, I use a studio in the UK where I practice more abstract pieces during holidays. In terms of sports, I like to play table tennis and badminton on a non-competitive level with friends. Above all, my most keen interest is travel and sightseeing.
What I admire most and find unique to St Andrews International School Bangkok is its sense of community in relation to its size; this was also one of my earliest observations about the school. In addition, one of the factors prompting my application to work at St Andrews was its great reputation among parents and teachers. Since I arrived in Bangkok in 2013, there has been a growing ‘buzz’ of positivity that surrounds the school and has travelled through the entire international school network.
