Paul White

A bit about me…

I have taught in a number of state secondary schools since qualifying as a teacher in 2002, having studied Geography at Leeds, teaching KS3, GCSE and A Level Geography, and am currently Head of Department at a large secondary school on the south coast of England. In previous roles I have had Key Stage responsibilities within a department along with being Head of Year 7. I am an active member of the Geographical Association and a board member of our local GA Branch.

Why I love being a Teacher Tour Leader…

Having travelled to Iceland many times, both on holiday and as a Teacher with my students I am just in awe of the country; the ever changing landscape is stunning, the way of life is relaxed and friendly and as a teacher the country covers so many different elements of GCSE/A Level curriculum in a unique location.

As an experienced trip lead for many national and international trips, I have a wealth of experience that I can share to support trip leaders and help students get the most from their trips with Discover the World Education. The whole culture and way of being in Iceland is fantastic and I believe that soaking up the atmosphere as you walk the streets or chat to the locals is another great way to experience Iceland.

My favourite place in Iceland…

There are so many splendid sights to see in Iceland it’s hard to narrow it down to just one, but a truly magical place for me is the Jokulsarlon, truly spectacular and ever changing landscape that never fails to impress everyone who sees it. The huge icebergs in the glacial lake are equally spectacular.
