Shwmae! Mr Bowen ydw i. I have the pleasure of teaching Year Six in Dosbarth Castell Caerffili. I am part of the Middle Leadership Team at George Street holding the position of Year 5/6 Team Leader. I am passionate about ICT and as Apple Learning Leader look forward to helping develop pupils’ digital skills across the school, as in a rapidly advancing technological world, preparing pupils with a diverse range of digital skills is an absolute essential. I relish the opportunity to encourage pupils them to reach their full potential.
I have taught for seventeen years and thoroughly enjoy my role as a Key Stage 2 teacher. In this school and previous schools, I have had ten years of prior experience related the role of a Middle Leader. I am passionate about all aspects of my role, from teaching the children to supporting staff.
Outside school, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love sport, and I have been a Football Coach for my local side for the last 8 years. Through this role I have been lucky enough to coach and support my own sons to develop their own skills. I am a proud dad who is kept busy, with one son playing at Academy level for Newport FC, another plays for Cardiff City ADC and I am part of the coaching team for my eldest son in his local team. As a keen sportsman I continue to play rugby and 5 aside football and enjoy running. I also have an energetic dog called Ted.
My door is always open, so feel free to pop in for a chat. Please follow our class Twitter page; @GSPriYear6
George Street feels like one big family and I am certainly proud to teach here.
