My name is Cynthia R. Lo, Deputy Teacher of Year 1 White and I am from the Philippines. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary and Secondary Education in 2010 from the Adventist University of the Philippines at Silang, Cavite. I taught Nursery, Kindergarten, Preparatory and Primary level for two years in my country. I have been working at HeadStart since 2012. I was a Deputy Teacher in Year 1 for four years and Reception last school year. I have passion for teaching children and watching them grows and progress in every aspect of their lives. Teaching is full of challenges but also rewarding experiences. I believe that it is important for parents and teachers to work together to create a positive learning environment for each student to achieve their goals and dreams in life. I am very excited for the start of the new school year teaching Year 1 again.
