My name is Vernette and I come from Lucena City, which is a city south of Manila, Philippines. I studied Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology at the University of the Philippines, Los Banos (UPLB), and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at Enverga University, Lucena City, Philippines. I am a passionate teacher with many years of experience in an ESL program for Korean and Japanese students at the University of the Philippines, and recently in a government school in Thailand. I have also worked in educational settings in the UK and the Middle East. My journey at HeadStart International School started as a Learning Support volunteer and although it was a brief experience, the challenge in that time was an uplifting experience for me. It is my absolute pleasure to work as a Deputy Teacher at HeadStart. Being with our HeadStart children makes me look forward to coming to work every day, and I enjoy being part of a team that is committed to making sure our HeadStart pupils are happy and learning at school.
