Meet the Teacher - Nicholas Greenfield

09 May 2023

What is your new role at Glenaeon?

At Glenaeon, I am a proud and passionate teacher of English in the High School, teaching fantastic classes in Year 7, 8, 10 and 11. Alongside this responsibility, I also teach a selection of Main Lessons that cover English, History, and Philosophy. Finally, I am the Mentor to The Army of Green Beans, as my group has labelled themselves.

What experience do you bring to Glenaeon?

I’ve quite a range of teaching experiences, having spent a chunk of my career in various places around the world teaching English as a Second Language, the most recent of which was in Bahrain, where I returned to High School teaching American Diploma and IB to Bahrainis … so a bit different to being at Glenaeon.

What are your interests?

As people might have spotted, I love to cycle, and compliment that with swimming and running. I’m not Jonas though, and love to also sit down with a good book, good friend, or good video game. Travel is also something I enjoy, in part due to being fortunate enough to have experienced a range of cultures, and discovered in each something really rewarding.

What are you most excited about for the year ahead?

Honestly, I get very excited about the potential I see in all my students, but especially my Year 10 and 11 students. Knowing the path they are on, and getting to be a part of that with them is such a special privilege, fuelling the reason why I always seem so full of energy as a teacher. For what other job gives you that chance, while also allowing you to share it with such an amazing group of young people?

Great to have you here, Nicholas!
