In 2009, I graduated from Lancaster University with a BSc Honours degree in Psychology in Education. Following this, I travelled to India to volunteer in a rural school in Rajasthan and from 2011-2013 I taught English at an elementary school in Ulsan, South Korea where my passion for teaching began. I travelled to many countries in South East Asia, including Thailand, and I knew that I wanted to return to Bangkok. In 2013, I returned to the UK and I completed the Teach First Leadership Development Programme. I worked at a school in North Manchester for three years and I took on the role of PE Co-ordinator during this time. I really enjoyed my time at the school, but I was keen to move back to Asia and work at an international school.
I feel very lucky and proud to work at St Andrews International School Bangkok and I fully support the vision of the school. I believe that there is no limit to what a child can achieve and I actively promote a growth mindset in my classroom. There is a very happy and relaxed environment at the school and everyone shows a genuine love for learning. In my spare time, I enjoy cycling, swimming, reading and exploring new places. I’m hoping to learn a lot more about the Thai culture during my time here, and visiting different islands.
