Year 7-Year 13
I was inspired by a PE teacher I had when I was in Year 7. His name was Graeme Aalders and he showed me I could turn my love of sport into a profession. He later became a mentor of mine and is currently a successful head in the UK.
Witnessing students’ success and seeing students overcome adversity through hard work and dedication.
Above anything else you have to learn how to inspire students, simply having good subject knowledge does not make a good teacher. You can be whoever you want to be in the classroom, my advice is to be memorable.
I was previously Director of Sport at The Windsor Boys’ School. I once attended the school as a student and it molded me into the person I am today.
Growing up I was Sports Coach as a Leisure Centre working holiday camps.
Anything involving sport, mostly watching it these days, however I also compete in triathlons and play golf for my enjoyment.
An app designer, I wish mobile phone apps were available when I was younger as I think I have hundreds of great ideas.
I am currently working towards it but I haven’t achieved it yet.
