Hello! My name is Jo Costello. I am an Art Teacher for EYFS and Primary. I am also teaching music to EYFS learners. I am originally from Nepal, grew up in Myanmar and then when I was 16 years old I migrated to Malaysia with my family. Whilst in Kuala Lumpur I studied for my online Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Horizon University, Paris. I then met and married my husband in KL and we both moved to the Philippines to progress his teaching career. Whilst in Manila I studied to obtain my Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from The University of Sunderland, UK. Our next move together internationally was here to Phuket where we both now work as teachers together. I am so grateful to be able to be a teacher as it is such a rewarding profession. The satisfaction of getting to see pupils get excited about learning and watching them grow into confident, independent learners is so special in my opinion. I am an Advanced PADI Scuba Diver and go diving regularly around the local beautiful islands. I love the outdoors and especially the mountains and forests. Hiking and walking are also passions of mine and intend to explore the beautiful island of Phuket more by foot.
