Advanced Skills Teacher (Mathematics), Steven Powell, has recently arrived on St Helena to take up his new post at Prince Andrew School on a two-year contract.
“I’m very excited and honoured to have been given the chance to contribute towards the development of Mathematics education on St Helena. I am determined to do everything in my power to make a real difference to the mathematical education of young people on the Island.”
Steven’s family are from Portsmouth, but until recently, he taught in the City of Peterborough.
As a child, Steven spent three years on Ascension Island.
“I have always remembered the kindness shown to me by the Saints on Ascension Island and how proud they were of their homeland. When I saw this job advertised I jumped at the chance to get to see and live on St Helena myself and cannot think of a better environment to raise my young daughter in.”
Steven has ten years of experience teaching in schools in the UK and has a track record of producing results across the ability spectrum for pupils at GCSE level.
Steven specialises in behaviour management, development of pupil’s problem-solving skills, and the effective use of IT in the classroom, to the point where he was invited to present at the ‘Apple in Education Conference’ in 2015 and 2016.
