My name is Ayce Rico and I am from the Philippines; I have been living in Phuket since 2010. I am looking forward to my second year as a Deputy Teacher of Year 5 at HeadStart International School. I am very excited about this coming academic year. I have been working at HeadStart since 2011 and throughout the years, I have had the opportunity to work with students of a variety of ages and backgrounds which has enabled me to be flexible and efficient as a teacher. I’ve developed my passion in teaching through helping children engage in their educational experiences from a fun and creative perspective. I hope to encourage the children to enhance their development and also inspire in them a love of lifelong learning.
