Hello and Sawadee ka! My name is Amy Drew and I am the Preschool teacher. I joined the HeadStart team in 2014, on the old school site which used to be opposite Makro. It has been so interesting to see the development of the school and to be part of the journey. My husband, Mr Drew, and I welcomed our first child to Phuket in 2018 and he has been enjoying his time in this amazing Foundation provision within HeadStart Foundation since 2020. I had hoped that my teacher training and the experience with children in their early years would prepare me well for having my own child, however nothing quite prepares you for a baby! This new understanding of parenthood has increased my empathy with yourselves as parents and with the challenges that children face at home as well as school. The experience has given me a unique insight into the mind of a young learner, especially relating to language acquisition as I observe my child learning to speak both English and Thai. I am very much looking forward to this next academic year and getting to welcome, support and learn with a lovely new cohort of children in one of the most exciting years of their lives. If there is anything you wish to talk to me about please come to see me. Thank you and korp khun ka.
