I am Hydie and I graduated Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education at Saint Louis University in the Philippines. I majored in Physical Education as I really love doing various kinds of sports and outdoor activities as well as teaching others to do so. I have taught in both private and public schools in the Philippines. Aside from teaching Physical Education, I also had the opportunity to teach English to students of various nationalities such as Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Taiwanese and Koreans. I gained valuable insights on how we could get along well with others despite the differences in culture, language and age. Moreover, I have also spent some of my weekends and summer breaks teaching children in an NGO in my town as well as in other places. Joining Headstart in 2018 made me see how all my experiences would be very helpful in effectively teaching international students. I am so excited and I am looking forward to having new experiences here while contributing to the growth of this school.
