My name is Yieneves, but you can call me Yien. I am from Visayas in the Philippines, from Iloilo City, the city of love. From a young age I knew I wanted to be a teacher, and always helped my brothers, sisters and cousins with their school work. I see teaching as a noble profession, making a difference to each child, and touching young lives. After high school I studied at West Visayas State University, and gained my Bachelor in Education, specializing in Elementary Education, and gaining my teacher license. My other passion is music. In high school I was in the school choir, and performed in concerts across many areas of Iloilo City. I hope to be able to join a choir in Phuket to continue with my passion of singing. I have taught in private schools in the Philippines for many years, and taught children across all grades of Primary and Foundation. I came to Thailand to further my knowledge of the world, and work with children from all nationalities and cultures, which I find very interesting. I joined HeadStart last August 2015 and this is my third year working at HeadStart International School. I am excited as I’m going back to Foundation again; it’s a great team and place to teach. I am very excited to meet the children and do lots of fun.
