Amy Drew

Teacher

My name is Amy Drew, and I’m very excited to be teaching at this amazing new site which is HeadStart. This will be my second year at HeadStart teaching Reception, and I’m very excited. I joined HeadStart last year as a deputy teacher, and had placements in a number of different classes. To me this is the most important year of their education, and I’m looking forwards to working with the children, other teachers, and parents on this fabulous new site, to give them all the opportunities for learning, fun, and happiness I can. My teaching career in Thailand started at an International School in Bangkok linked to a top UK private boarding school. There I held a number of roles: running playgroup; specialising in teaching English as an additional Language (EAL) to Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage; and finally teaching Pre-school within the Foundation Key Stage. I originally graduated from Loughborough University with a Bachelors of Science however I shall not tell you there year, as that will give my age away!! I’m currently studying for a post graduate qualification in Education with the University of Nottingham to update my skills to the very latest educational theory and practices. Living in Thailand, I’ve enjoyed an education myself from learning the culture and the language of Thailand to meeting so many experienced teachers at HeadStart with vast knowledge from teaching around the world. I moved to Thailand with my husband, the Director of Studies, and spent 2 years in the city of smiles, Bangkok, enjoying the vibrancy of the city, before moving to Phuket a year ago, away from the hustle and bustle to the calm and leafy inner island, the tropical beaches, and colourful underwater activity that I see when Scuba Diving. My passion is for teaching the younger children, the impact we as teachers at this stage have on their learning is profound and the day to day changes that we are able to see are incredible. I feel a huge responsibility to provide solid ‘foundations’ to the children’s education that their teachers from KS1 to University can build upon.

My name is Ivy B. Carlos, Deputy Teacher of Year 1 Blue. I am from the Philippines. I finished my Bachelor’s degree in Education majoring in Early Childhood Education (ECE) from the University of Northern Philippines at Vigan City, Ilocos Sur. I experienced teaching Year 1 and Year 3 in my country. I have been working at HeadStart since 2013 and I can say that I am enjoying my stay here. I started working in Reception before moving to Year 1. I love working with children and I aim to support them to enhance their learning abilities with the best that I can. I believe in the saying “Teachers who love teaching teach children to love learning.” I am looking forward for another great and fun year teaching Year 1 Blue.

My name is Siriyupa Prakodlert, but my nickname is Tik, and the children call me P. Tik. I am married to the EAL teacher, Mr Osborne, and we have 2 children at the school, in Primary, and Preschool. This is my second year at HeadStart in Reception Yellow, but my family has been part of the HeadStart story for many years. I am now the 4th person in my family to pursue a career with HeadStart, after my husband, my mother in law and father in law, Mrs and Mr Millington, who is now in Hong Kong. My youngest daughter is enjoying moving to Early Years class this year, and our eldest girl is enjoying year 3. I am very pleased that I can help to be part of looking after the children here, and work with the wonderful staff in the Foundation team.
