“Our favourite teachers”: King’s InterHigh students celebrate World Teachers’ Day
October 5th is UNESCO World Teachers’ Day: a day to celebrate all the incredible educators who make the world of schooling go round!
At King’s InterHigh, we couldn’t bring our students the high-quality, personalised, flexible, and inspiring online education we’re known for without the hard work of every teacher in our community.
To show their support, our King’s InterHigh students have nominated some of their favourite teachers to shine a spotlight on. In the words of our families, here’s how they create environment that makes our learners excited to come to class and helps them reach their academic potential.
“The most important thing is that you aren't afraid to answer, and you don't give up. He makes physics my favourite class because I know that I can answer without being judged!” – from Nina
“Congratulations to all teachers for helping our children grow and learn. Thank you!” – from Nivia, Matheus’s mum
“The teacher makes the online classes more interactive by giving quizzes and she makes the lesson very understandable.” – from Mrs K., Vishwanath’s mum
“Anita Martin is such a wholesome lovely teacher, she's always available for her students, and is very sweet and funny, she has truly helped me to feel connected to the school.” – from Isa
"Florence does everything she can to impress her teacher and I can see that she genuinely enjoys her course much more this year because of this wonderful teacher." – from Michaela, Florence's mum
“I have just joined KIH and my favourite lesson is English. I am pleased that I really like my teacher, Patricia Thornhill. I look forward to her lessons and she engages us all with varied and calm lessons.” – from Anna
“He has always been so supportive and cooperative with me and all my classmates and infects us with his love for biology. He makes me feel comfortable to put my camera and mic on in class and highly encourages us to interact with each other.
“I am so happy that Mr. Robertson is my teacher this year again, as with his guidance, last summer I managed to reach a score of 7 on my IGCSE Biology exam, which is a huge accomplishment for me, because as much as I love the subject, it is also a very technical and complex one.
“Mr. Robertson is one of the most unique and inspiring teachers I have met in my life, and I am so grateful to know him and be able to learn from him. Thank you, Mr. Robertson and Happy World Teachers' Day!!” – from Ralitsa
