Matthew Rigg

Teacher of History

After graduating from the University of Leicester with a degree in History and Politics in the year 2014 I began my teaching journey as an English additional language teacher in several government schools in Thailand. I then returned to the UK to complete my PGCE training before being drawn back to Thailand where I have spent the last three years working as the lead history teacher at a British international school on the beautiful island of Phuket.  

 I am now excited to be beginning a new chapter in my teaching career at Park Lane International School in the wonderful city of Prague. As an educator I am passionate about making history an inclusive and engaging subject for all of my students. 

 Away from the classroom I am an enthusiastic sportsman and an avid supporter of the mighty Burnley FC. In my spare time I also cannot wait to explore more of the rich culture and history that Prague has on offer.
