My name is Katherine Dickie and this is my second year at HeadStart and I will be teaching Year 4 Yellow. I am a Canadian citizen from the province of Nova Scotia. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in English from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia and a Bachelor of Education from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. My background in teaching started in Stockholm, Sweden where I taught science to years 4, 5 and 6 for two years. I became Head of the Elementary Science Department in my second year. From there I moved to Bangkok, Thailand to become a homeroom teacher for year 1. After being away from Canada for three consecutive years, I made the decision to move back to Nova Scotia where I secured a one year teaching position in a private school teaching year 1. Now I am entering my second year here in Phuket and Thailand continues to feel like my new home. I am so fortunate to be here and I look forward to more experiences in this beautiful country. Teaching is my passion and I find such happiness watching students grow through their learning process. I believe having fun in the classroom is important when it comes to maintaining curiosity. Pupils learn best when they’re active, engaged and working together as a team. I look forward to working collaboratively with the HeadStart teachers, parents and pupils. I am excited to meet the new year 4 class and I know that working together, we can achieve excellent results.

Hi, my name is Jo Ann and I am the Year 4 Deputy Teacher. This is my fifth year at HeadStart and I am very excited about continuing to work with children. I am from the Philippines and graduated from the University of San Agustin in 2004 with the degree of Bachelor of Elementary Education. I started teaching in 2005 in my country until I came to Thailand. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunities to educate students, who have had a variety of education needs. This has giving me a fantastic range of experience. I am very passionate about the importance of education. I believe that teachers are life-long educators and we never stop learning ourselves. The more teachers can learn, the more they can impact others. I’m eager to inspire, uplift and share the joy with my student by emphasizing the fun in education and fostering a love of learning. I am sincerely looking forward to our educational journey in the new academic year!
