Q&A with Mr. Ethan Foulkes, Science and Maths Teacher
What attracted you to teaching?
What originally attracted me to teaching is that I’ve always enjoyed explaining mathematics and science problems to anyone who would ask for help. I remember being happy to help my friends at both school and university. So after I completed my degree in engineering and decided it wasn’t for me, it didn’t take long for me to think of teaching as an ideal vocation. After I finished my first practicum I knew I had made the right decision.
How have your first few of weeks been?
The first few weeks have gone by so fast but have been great! Both students and staff have been really welcoming and eager to help and being a new staff member to the school I had a lot of questions to ask.
In what ways is Carmel different to other schools in which you’ve taught?
The most notable thing I found about Carmel is that everyone knows everyone. It is such a small and close community which is great because it is at a school like this where you make connections that will benefit you in both your personal and professional life. The size of the classes is another benefit of being a small school. The fantastic teacher to student ratio allows the pupils to get the help and attention they need to thrive.
Anything else about you that you’d be happy to share?
My interests include playing and watching just about any sport including soccer, cricket, basketball and golf. I am a huge supporter of Liverpool FC who play in the English Premier League. In my spare time I enjoy playing video games and listening to podcasts on history.
