I qualified as a teacher in 2008 in the UK and worked in a large comprehensive school in North Wales for 8 years. During my time there I was promoted to Head of Applied Science, as post which I held for 7 years as well as Assistant SENCO on a 2 year secondment. I have also worked as a volunteer with the sustainability group in UWCSEA in Singapore and as a Science teacher at Greig City Academy in London. This is my third year at STA Bangkok and I became Head of Year 10 in April 2019 and am now Head of Year 11.
Positive and proactive, I very much enjoy teaching biology with my favorite topics being human biology and in particular nutrition and the gut brain axis. Exercise, in particular triathlons and yoga, are big parts of my life. I teach yoga to the staff at STA as well as running yoga classes as an ECA for students in high school. I am interested in sustainability and environmental issues, an being from Wales have a love of the great outdoors.
The students are enthusiastic, engaged and hard working. They take their education seriously and are confident to ask questions and test my knowledge. They are interested in learning science and we have a lot of fun during our lessons.
