Hello! Sawadee kha! My name is Shea Sagpaey, you can just call me Miss Shea. I am from La Trinidad, Benguet. My hometown is referred to as “Rose Capital of the Philippines” as well as “Strawberry Capital of the Philippines” – thanks to the municipality’s rich agricultural economy. I am the Deputy Teacher of Y3 Blue and I am thrilled to start a new school year here in HeadStart. I am a Registered Medical Technologist by profession but have furthered my career by taking up education units and have been teaching here in Thailand for the past 4 years now. I was an ESL teacher in Kajonkiet Pattana School and was a former homeroom teacher in Anuban Phangnga School wherein I taught English, Science and Health to kindergarten and primary students. Hence, these experiences have made me better as a teacher and it is a privilege to be part of the HeadStart team today. Last school year, I was assigned to Y3 White and was moved to Y3 Blue where I will be staying this school year. I love teaching children and supporting them in every way I can. In return, I get to learn from them as well. I believe that every student is unique and I am eager to meet and get to know each and everyone in the class. This year will be filled with lots of fun learning and I am looking forward to working with HeadStart to further my profession as an educator and to keep encouraging young children to love learning. This will surely be an exciting year for everyone!
