Meet the New Teacher – Gemma Thomas – Primary Year 6 Teacher


Introducing our new Year 6 teacher, Gemma Thomas

Gemma obtained her degree in English Literature at Staffordshire University in the UK and took her PGCE at St Martin’s Teaching College. She has taught in London, Abu Dhabi and most recently at Tanglin Trust School in Singapore.

“After completing my degree, I got a TEFL job in Bangkok which made me fall in love with teaching and Thailand.  2 years later, I returned to the UK to study for a PGCE. After several years of teaching, I decided it was time to return to Thailand. I am looking forward to traveling and exploring the country further and hopefully do some diving along the way.”

As a teacher, I am passionate about developing children’s confidence, personal growth and well-being. I think a teacher’s response to the children is key, – someone who cares about their welfare and happiness.  I am really glad to be teaching Year 6 and preparing them for Secondary school.
