Carla Bastow, from the UK, worked for Discover from 2011 - 2012

Discover academy has been the perfect environment for me to self-develop as a teacher at the beginning of my career.    Its philosophy of motivation, enthusiasm, dedication, passion and collaboration creates an environment in which ideas are shared, support is always given, and friendships are made. 


Striving to improve is essential to every educational environment.  This mentality clearly shines throughout the academy as much in the teachers as in the students.  Collaborating to discover, share and develop ideas has been key to improving teaching strategies and classroom management; ideas and methods that I will be carrying with me on the next stage of my journey.


I would like to give a final thank you for the support, guidance and friendship Assieh and Miguel-Angel have given me.  I have learnt so much from working with you,it really has been wonderful to work with such passionate, generous and selfless people.  Keep up the fantastic work!
