Fraser is a 27 year old teacher and currently resides in the sunny seaside town of Eastbourne in Sussex, England. He has 3 years experience as a Key Stage 1 (lower primary) teacher and prior to this was working in special educational needs.
Fraser absolutely loves working with children. He feels that the job is always challenging, thought-provoking and consistently inspiring, but above all a heck of a lot of fun. When it goes well, there is no better feeling!
Before becoming a teacher Fraser studied International Development, and has retained a keen interest in development issues. Fraser has previously volunteered in Uganda on community projects and administration, and has always wished to provide what select skills he has in places that most need them. However, in a ‘less altruistic’ sense, he also wants to work in Bhutan for personal reasons. Fraser is fascinated by Buddhist culture and traditions, and his limited experience in that part of the world filled him with an enormous sense of peace and contentment. He feels that to immerse himself in that for a year is, at the same time, a daunting and powerfully exciting opportunity.
