Mabuhay! Hello, my name is Yieneves, but you can call me Yien. I am from Visayas in the Philippines, from Iloilo City, the city of love. From a young age I knew I wanted to be a teacher, and always helped my brothers, sisters and cousins with their school work. I see teaching as a noble profession, making a difference to each child, and touching young lives. When I was in high school I used to go in an outreach program to help one of the indigenous tribes in our country to help them know how to read and write. After high school I studied at West Visayas State University, and gained my Bachelor in Education, specializing in Elementary Education, and gaining my teaching license. My other passion is music. In high school, I was in the school choir and performed in concerts across many areas of Iloilo City. I do believe music helps the body and the mind work together and I do apply it to my teaching with the children. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meaning of the words. Dancing to music helps the children to build their motor skills. I have taught in private schools in the Philippines for many years and taught children across all grades of Primary and Foundation. I came to Thailand to further my knowledge of the world and work with children from all nationalities and cultures, which I find very interesting. This is my seventh year working at HeadStart International School and I am excited as I’m staying in Primary this year, it’s a great team and place to teach. I am very excited to meet the children and do lots of fun!
