About

I am a high school biology teacher in Bangkok, Thailand. 'Cheewit' (ชีวิต) means 'life' in Thai, hence the title of my blog.  

I'm interested in inclusive science education, specifically with English as additional language learners (EALs), and I'm also a keen advocate of edtech integration. I have worked previously in research and in public health. Backdoor bragging: I'm never great at making my mind up, which is why I hold both an MSc and an MAEd!

My maths skills are not too fantastic, but fortunately I'm married to a mathematician, @lisawhite1000. In my free time I enjoy travel, scuba diving, photography (particularly nature photography), and running. 

My photos are licensed under the Creative Commons license for non-commercial use, so for example they can be used for educational purposes, or in your blog, as long as they are attributed. 

I started blogging in December 2014, and usually post here. I have also contributed to BAM Radio NetworkInnovate My School, Pedagoo, and co-written a post at CreateInnovateExplore. My posts usually relate to education in some way, but sometimes I'll include a photoblog (usually when I've been on holiday!)   

Finally, a shameless plug: Keshokenya.org - an educational charity I helped to co-found to help send kids in Kilifi, Kenya go to school, who would otherwise be unable to afford it.
