Tim Bartja (pronounced ‘Bar – cha’) is excited to start his first year with the ANI team. Originally from Canada, Tim completed his teacher training in Australia and has taught across a variety of age groups in England during the last three years. He has a broad range of personal interests that include writing, drumming, wrestling and video games. Tim sees the multilayered value in pursuing extracurricular passions for the development of the whole person, and is looking forward to enriching the experiences of dynamic learning with his class. Outside of school, Tim enjoys hiking with his wife, winding down with a videogame, or working on writing his young adult fiction, that he aims to finish this year.
