My name is Hannah, and I come from the city of smiles, Bacolod in the Island of Negros Occidental known as the “Sugarbowl of the Philippines,” producing more than half of the country’s sugar. I completed my Bachelor in Elementary Education and then passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers in the year 2005. I am currently taking up a Masters of Arts in Education Major in Educational Management. This is my fifth year working at HeadStart and will remain as a deputy teacher in Year 6 White. I’ve been living in Thailand for sixteen years and have had the opportunity to teach various subjects to all levels from kindergarten to college students. My exposure to different educational settings has made me flexible and easy to adapt to new situations and faculty concepts. Throughout my career, I have followed the philosophy of motivating and developing an urge of learning amongst my students as I want them to be excited about coming to school, engaged purposely in their learning and be aware of their potential. I am a very active person. Outside of the classroom, I love to be outdoors running and swimming. I do Yoga and Muay Thai weekly and I also have a passion for street photography, travelling, reading and writing.
