Staff Profiles: Michael (Mick) Callan

Michael Callan

Head of Science

I started teaching in 1995 at Ormesby Comprehensive School, Middlesbrough in the UK. From 2000 to 2002 I taught in Wellington, New Zealand and New South Wales and Western Australia. When I first came to Thailand, I worked on the Bilingual Science project at Amnuay Silpa School and at Rasami International School before joining St Andrews International school in 2007. I really enjoy the challenge of teaching Physics and leading a department of dedicated, enthusiastic teachers who love teaching Science as much as I do.

I like to stay active and do this through running, cycling, climbing, trekking and the odd obstacle race. I also enjoy making music with friends and like to play guitar, mandolin and harmonica - but not usually at the same time!

I really appreciate working at St Andrews because it is dedicated to accepting students with needs that are not served by other international schools. We have a great sense of community and the staff, students and parents make a great team.

 


 

"Mr Mick is a very helpful teacher who often teaches beyond the syllabus, which helps captivate his students. His Physics lessons are filled with experiments, which help me learn and interact with the topics better."

"The thing that I really like about your teaching is that you explain things really clearly until we understand it and you make us do experiments so it makes us remember what is happening."

"Mr. Mick is always engaging with his teaching and helps us get a good understanding of the knowledge of the IB Physics course. Through his teaching, I was able to understand the course better and also consider Physics as one of my best subjects ever!"

"Mr Mick is one of the most qualified science teacher I have seen. The teaching style is very appreciative since he makes the whole class engage and asks everyone questions which helps him see the gaps in our knowledge. He then just doesn't give out the answer, instead he makes us think more about it and work as a group to come up with the right answer. I really like this since he is making us work more and in some ways it helps us prepare for our IB exams and mocks since he won't be there to tell us the answer, instead we will have to think about it ourselves."
