Mabuhay! My name is Ayce Rico and I am from the island of Romblon known as the Marble Capital of the Philippines for its lucrative production over the country. I have been living in Phuket since 2010. I am very excited about this academic year as I remain a Deputy Teacher of Year 6 Yellow. I am looking forward to my twelfth year at HeadStart International School. I graduated in 2010 from Romblon State University with the degree in Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Management and I successfully completed my Diploma in Teaching Education at Ifugao State University in 2016. Working at HeadStart for almost eleven years, I learned the importance of relationship with students; taking the time to know them, what they stand for, and what they like. I have had the opportunities to educate my students, where I aim to be flexible and efficient when performing my duties. I continue to develop my passion, helping students to engage in a creative and fun learning experience. I hope to encourage the children to develop and also inspire them to have a lifelong love of learning. Outside school, I love to do running, cooking and singing with friends.
