TEACHING STAFF

Mr Nathan Clark

PE Teacher & Swimming Coach

MA (Hons) Physical Education

Briefly describe your career (teaching or otherwise) to date.

I have taught in quite a few very different schools in Scotland during my short teaching career. My favourite was in a remote area in the Scottish Highlands because of the laid back lifestyle, mountains, and outdoor learning.

Why did you choose teaching as a career and what do you try to instil in your pupils?

I have wanted to be a PE teacher for as long as I can remember, working in sports all day was a big driver. I try to promote growth mindsets, confident individuals and effective contributors. 

Apart from your classroom teaching role, what else do you get involved with at the school?

I am a very passionate leader of all things extra curricular. I have coached football, athletics, cross county, basketball, volleyball, badminton, handball and netball. I try to get involved with any events running in the school such as charity days. 

 

Who or what inspires you?

Constantly challenging myself and trying new things inspires me when I am unsure of what the outcome will be.

Tell us something that not a lot of people know about you.

I am quite musical. When I was young I played guitar, cornet and tenor horn but don't hand me any of these instruments now! Now I DJ from time to time and make my own music.
