Staff Profiles: Mr James

๋James Thornton

Year 4 Teacher

I came to Thailand to teach after I graduated from university in 2013. Here I completed a TEFL and taught in Surin for two years. I worked in Korea for one year but missed Thailand and returned to Bangkok to teach.

When I returned, I completed my PGCEI with Nottingham University, joined STA as a maternity cover teacher in 2019 and joined the team in 2020. One of my main hobbies is playing the card game Magic the Gathering.

I play this regularly with my friends in Bangkok, and it has been a great way to meet people. I also enjoy watching Formula 1, going to Malaysia to watch the race when it took place in Kuala Lumpur. I also enjoy spending time with my family, wife, and three fluffy cats: Nooning, Milkshake, and Tungtao. My students have always said they love my class and say that I am a fun teacher who makes them laugh.
