Hi, and welcome to my website! My name is Louie Barnett and I am a chemistry teacher at the United World College of South East Asia – East in Singapore. I am also involved in peace education at the school, helping the run the Initiative for Peace (IFP) programme.
I started out my career as a participant on the Teach First Leadership Development Programme. This had given me a lifelong passion for education and fairness. Everyone has the right to a high-quality education no matter the circumstances. Poverty, war, mental health, parent’s wealth. None of these things should prevent you from getting the education you deserve.
This website primarily serves as a place for me to share the following:
- my life philosophies and principles
- my learning in the form of blog posts. These will be varied and centred on book reviews, classroom learning and peacebuilding.
I do hope that you enjoy visiting the site, and I welcome feedback in any shape or form!
