My name is Christopher Costello and I am aqualified Primary School Teacher from Ireland.
My educational history involves a Higher Diploma in Primary Education and a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities, specialising in the subjects of English and Human Development (Child Psychology, Sociology and Philosophy).
Hobbies of mine include athletics, musical theatre, movies and reading and I enjoy integrating these interests into my lessons. By nature, I am a hardworking, dedicated and compassionate person who always gives one hundred percent in both effort and enthusiasm. I am committed to instilling a love for education within my students. Together, we will have fun, develop our skill sets, work hard, progress academically and socially, flourish holistically and ultimately achieve our very best results.
I taught for three years at home in Ireland before moving to Dubai to work as a founding member of a British Curriculum school. In my two years in this school,I developed my teaching skills and gained vast experience in school leadership as I assumed the roles of Key Stage 1 Leader and Primary English Coordinator. I joined Safa British School in September 2019 as a Year 2 Class Teacher. The past three years in Year 2 have been extremely fruitful for me and I have furthered my skills across all aspects of the curriculum.In addition to this, I have two years of experience working as a middle leader in the school as Head of Moral, Social and Cultural Studies. This year, I am thrilled and excited to begin my new role as Year 4 Teacher and so enthused to work with an exceptional group of pupils. What I am, is a teacher who is passionate about education. I am a confident and competent educator who strives to achieve the best results from myself and my pupils at all times. I enjoy creating a learning environment that promotes enthusiasm in learning and involves active participation from the children. My aim is to create a cross curricular learning experience, which employs a variety of teaching methodologies enabling the students to flourish holistically in school and subsequently in their personal daily lives
