New Teachers 2011

  Jane Griffiths
Hello, my name is Jane Griffiths, I am Welsh and I have a Masters of Education Degree from Oxford University. I am married and have two grown-up children; Ben who is a chef and guitar player in a rock band and Megan who is studying for a degree in Early Years Education at a University in England. In my spare time I enjoy travelling and spending time with my family. I enjoy photography, music and art and I read when I have a quiet moment. I have been a Primary School Teacher in different parts of the UK for nearly 30 years, teaching children from aged 3 to 13 in many different schools in Portsmouth, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and Somerset, and I have been a Primary School Headteacher (Principal) for 8 years. So I bring with me wide experience of the British National Curriculum and Primary School Leadership which I look forward to offering to Traill International School.
  Robin Hamilton
I was born in Windsor and grew up in Dorset, graduating with degree in English & Media from the University of Southampton. After various interesting jobs I gained a Post Graduate Certificate of Education from the University of Bath and then taught English and Media Studies in Weymouth before becoming Manager of Adult Continuing Education at City of Bath College, where I also learned British Sign Language - an additional programme I was responsible for. I have learned to speak basic Malay/Bahasa Indonesia and have set myself the challenge of speaking fluent Thai in under a year!

In the past I have introduced a film animation initiative in a young offenders’ institution (a national first in the UK) and have spoken on TV about this initiative. I have two grown-up children (one of each). My daughter lives in Southampton and my son runs his own on-line business for which I provide backing and consultation.
  Andrew Mayers
My name is Mr Andrew and I’m from Wales (the nicest part of the United Kingdom). I did my English degree at the University of London before also studying at Cardiff University and City University, London. Before coming to Traill, I taught at international schools in Hong Kong, Hanoi and Bangkok. As Bangkok is the city I like most, I am very happy to be working at Traill.

In my spare time I enjoy wandering aimlessly with a camera and a book. I will soon be starting a Master’s in English Literature with the University of Sheffield, which means I will have lots of homework to do.
  Benjamin Aulton
My name is Benjamin Aulton, I am from Derbyshire, England, and I am the new ICT teacher here at Traill International School. I graduated in Multimedia Technology (BSc) from the University of Lincoln, and gained a PGCE in Secondary ICT from the University of Exeter. I am a keen enthusiast in the advances of technology, where I am always keen to get my hands on the latest gadgets. I am a huge football fan; however I am possibly the only Derby County fan in Thailand!

I have a musical side to my personality, where I have been playing electric and acoustic guitar for around 6 years. I have also recently begun teaching myself how to play piano. My favourite band is Muse, where I have seen them live no less than 10 times.
