Hello! My name is Saki and I am entering my first full year of teaching at HeadStart International School. I am originally from Japan, however having grown up in Thailand and New Zealand. I studied at St Mary’s Twickenham University in South West London, gaining a degree in Primary Education (specializing in Early Years). During my time in England, I was fortunate enough to teach across all primary key stages and work with children from different backgrounds. As an Early Years practitioner, I believe that every child is unique. By us practitioners providing an engaging and safe learning environment, I believe that the children will be able to benefit and be able to learn about a variety of topics in ways that they want to engage with most. I believe that having a good relationship with parents, guardians and children will make for fantastic progress in children’s lives, in both their academic and emotional development. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy reading, playing basketball, travelling and eating. If there are any restaurants you would recommend in Phuket, especially for Japanese food, please let me know! I am truly looking forward to working with you. Thank you!
