My name is Natasha and I was born in Phuket but have lived in America and Australia for 3 years each. I’ve obtained a BSc in Biology/Pre-Medicine from Juniata College, America and a Master’s degree of Secondary Teaching in Science and Middle Years (Maths and English) from Victoria University, Australia. In addition, I studied abroad in France while undertaking my bachelor’s degree. I speak 4 languages: English, Thai, Hindi and French. Prior to moving to Phuket, I was a Primary and a Secondary cover relief teacher in Melbourne for a year and a VCAL teacher at Victoria University. My teaching philosophy focuses on educating students to become global citizens where I encourage students to constructively apply what they have learnt in the classroom to the real world. I’m an active and adventurous person; I am passionate about Latin dancing and I love travelling. I also keep myself fit by playing tennis and volleyball. I enjoy a healthy lifestyle and I’m always looking for new recipes to experiment with; I’m excited to incorporate the fresh and exotic ingredients Phuket has to offer. My education experiences in various countries have shaped me into a diverse individual with an open mind; respecting and appreciating various perspectives. I’m looking forward to being part of the HeadStart community and to inspire young individuals to be lifelong learners.
