Staff Profiles: Graeme Paterson

Graeme

Year 6 Teacher (Class 6P)

Following a TEFL course in Edinburgh at the beginning of 2001, I moved to Thailand and began work as an English Teacher. Through a company called Fun Langauge, I had the opportunity to teach English in Thai schools. The following year I moved to Anglo Singapore and then on to Topsy Turvey, establishing EAL departments in both schools. While at Topsy Turvey I completed my PGCE through Sunderland University, and became a homeroom teacher. I taught there for a further 2 years, gaining experience in both KS1 and KS2. I also held the position of Literacy Coordinator in my final year.

In 2011, I moved to St. Andrews International School Bangkok. The school has an excellent reputation amongst parents, teachers and students in Bangkok, and it was a place I had wanted to come and work for many years. Apart from teaching Year 6, I am the Coordinator for the Foundation Stage subjects, including History, Geography, Art & Design, and Design Technology. In addition, I work with the Under 9 Boys’ football team, and support the PE Department with the Primary FOBISIA squads.

I originally come from Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland. I was always interested in living abroad, and following a short spell in Israel, I moved to Thailand in 2001. As each year passes, it feels more and more like home. My greatest passion is football, and I really enjoy coaching the kids. Recently, I have taken up golf and yoga. I need the yoga to calm down after losing so many balls on the golf course! In the future, I would like to be the Prime Minister or an astronaut.

Of all the schools I have worked at in Thailand, St. Andrews is the only place where the majority of the teachers and support staff are genuinely happy; an essential ingredient to creating a positive learning environment for children.
