Alec grew up in North London and lived in Hertfordshire. He originally trained to be a Physical Education teacher at Leeds Metropolitan University where he combined his love of sport with his passion for teaching. On successful completion of his teaching degree, Alec was offered a position as a class teacher in an Infant School. Having a thirst for adventure and an innate desire to challenge himself, he then embarked on three years of Early Years Foundation Stage teaching. Throughout his training and teaching experience Alec has utilised technology, another of his passions, to enhance the learning opportunities within his classroom environment. Outside of school he enjoys playing the piano, being a DJ, playing golf and building websites and apps. The sense of adventure and challenge that awaited Alec in Malaysia was a deciding factor in choosing to work at St Joseph’s.
