Ross McGowan, English Teacher

Brought up and educated near Glasgow, I gained a bachelor degree in English and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (English) from Strathclyde University. I have been teaching in schools and Further Education (FE) colleges for 13 years. My teaching career began in a state school in central Scotland before moving to the Scottish Borders for three years to teach English and Communication. I returned to the central belt of Scotland and taught English for seven years in New College Lanarkshire.

Internationally, I have taught in Abu Dhabi and Düsseldorf and I have eight years’ total IB teaching experience.

In my spare time, I enjoy sports and used to represent Scotland in athletics. I was second best in the country!
