Pleased to Meet You...Kirstie Robertson

This week we are pleased to meet Kirstie Robertson who is a Year 5 Teacher

Kirstie Robertson

Where are you from originally? This is a bit of a tricky one! My dad is in the RAF so we have never lived somewhere for more than three years so I wouldn’t really say I’m from anywhere. Though, home at the moment is in Newark-on-Trent.

Have you lived in any other countries? I have lived in a few different countries growing up. I lived in Belgium, Italy, Denmark and I spent my university year abroad in Corsica, which is beautiful and I recommend everyone to go there.

Where and what did you study for your education? I studied International Politics and French at Aberystwyth University, it’s a quiet little seaside town in Wales but the population is mainly students unless it’s summer then it’s even quieter!  

How long have you been at TBS? This is now my second year teaching at TBS. I started as a Year 2 teacher and now I am teaching Year 5 and still getting used to how tall they are.

What do you enjoy most about teaching at our school? I love that every day is different and the children constantly surprise you with their knowledge and how they are able to switch between languages so quickly! My class has a great sense of humour this year and that always makes the day enjoyable.

What are you most looking forward to in the 2018/2019 academic year? I am looking forward to my class assembly which will happen in a couple of weeks. I have let go of control this time so the assembly will be researched and written completely by them. Fingers crossed it goes well!

Whose your favourite historian/scientist/literary figure and why? I don’t think I have ever really thought about this too much. I guess my favourite scientist would have to be Stephen Hawking. I would combine the other two to say Philippa Gregory who writes great historically based books.

What is your favourite thing about living in Warsaw, Poland? I love when Christmas comes around and the ice rink goes up, the Christmas light go on and the little huts with mulled wine start up. It’s a lovely time of year.

What do you miss most from home? At the moment, I am definitely missing a chocolate orange the most! Though, I’ve heard whispers that you can get them in certain places so I may have to hunt one down.
