Educator

1. Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from and what were you doing before arriving at THINK Global School?

I was born and raised in London (United Kingdom). Before arriving at TGS, I was part of the extended leadership team at an Outstanding Inner London School. I have taught Business Studies for over ten years to students ages 11 to 19. I have also been heavily involved in extra-curricular activities such as boxing, football, and table tennis.

2. What do you love most about teaching?

The thing I love most about teaching is the positive impact it allows me to have on young people and as a consequence the wider society. I love that I can use my own experiences and expertise to guide and educate students.

3. What aspects of THINK Global School’s educational model do you find most appealing?

I fell in love with the fact that students have some ownership over their learning. I also like that students are seen as individuals rather than percentages. This means learning for students will be personal, fun, and relevant; as an educator, this is how I envision learning. Thirdly I was tantalized that TGS is a globally aware school, birthing globally aware students and teachers; this is important as the world is slowly becoming one big market place.

4. What is your most memorable travel experience thus far?

My favorite travel experience thus far was definitely being on the Arabian/Persian Gulf watching Dolphins in the middle of the sea. It was nice to see these creatures in their natural environment rather than in a man-made tourist attraction. I would like to say I jumped in with them, but I didn’t.

5. If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Bali or the Solomon Islands, the images I’ve seen and the feedback I’ve heard has made these 2 places must-visit locations for me.

6. What is your favorite book, and why?

The Fault in our Stars, as it was an emotional rollercoaster which also highlighted how important it is to make the most of our lives.
