I am Letitia Bekker, from the beautiful nation of South Africa. My academic journey led me to achieve a BSc Degree in Chemistry and a PGCE qualification from the University of Pretoria. I absolutely love helping young minds grow and develop. As a teacher, my main goal is to make a positive impact on students’ lives. I believe that the best way for students to learn is when they are at the centre of their education journey and making sure they are actively involved in their learning. I'm also dedicated to doing everything I can to support and help each student grow in every way possible. My teaching journey started in South Africa where I taught part-time at IMPAK while completing my studies. After that I joined Hoërskool Warmbad as a full-time teacher, specializing in Mathematics and Science. In 2015, my husband and I embarked on a new chapter in Thailand, and I started teaching Science at a school in Rayong. Then, in January 2016, I had the wonderful opportunity to join the esteemed Maths Faculty at HeadStart International School. Beyond the classroom, I love to spend time with my family and friend by going to all the wonderful beaches around the island. I'm also a proud parent to two daughters in Foundation. This role adds a special kind of excitement as it also makes me a member of the Parent Community here at HeadStart International School. I am looking forward to another year of working with colleagues and students from different parts of the world. As a new academic year approaches, I'm filled with anticipation for the countless opportunities and exciting experiences it will bring.
