Candice Smithie

Teacher
[email protected]

My name is Candice Smithie and I will be the Reception homeroom teacher for the Blue class. I am a Foundation Phase and Early Childhood development teacher, qualified with Cum Laude through the University of South Africa. I am from the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa. I have lived and taught in Thailand for two and a half years, teaching in a Thai and an International school. From the minute I arrived in Thailand I knew it would be impossible for me to leave. I love the culture, the weather and being able to live on the idyllic island of Phuket. I have been working with children of various ages and abilities over the past 6 years and have found a true passion in teaching children from different countries and learning about their different cultures. I have a natural way with children and a very warm heart in wanting to help mould them for their future and not merely be their teacher, but their mentor and role model. I believe that each child is unique and should always be allowed them to think for themselves. I plan to help each student grow and develop into the best of themselves, to have fun while learning and to enjoy every moment of their time at school. I am really looking forward to beginning my journey at HeadStart and working alongside my amazing colleagues.

I am Rebecca Robielos from Manila, Philippines. I completed my Bachelor Elementary Education in March 2000 at the National teachers College in my country. After I graduated, I worked at a local school in Manila for two years handling children at their foundation stage. I joined HeadStart team last March 2011 where I supported the Reception class. I already handled students from the Foundation stage of pre-school up to Reception classes. And also, last year I worked as a Deputy Teacher in year 1 Blue with Miss Nicola. This year I am going back to Reception alongside Miss Candice and I am looking forward to support the children in the Key stage 1 with all areas of development. I can’t wait to see children and get started!
