Hello, Sawadee Ka, and Kia Ora! I was raised in the Bay of Plenty which can be found on the North Island of New Zealand. I studied Psychology and Philosophy at the University of Otago in Dunedin; a town that recently regained its record for having the steepest street in the world! I began my career as a teacher in Prague in 2015. I worked as an ESL teacher for adults who wished to develop their English language abilities. I soon realised I had a passion for teaching, so I also started work in an English language school for students aged four upwards. I enjoyed the working with children immensely, which inspired me to continue my professional development and I completed my International Post Graduate Certificate in Education in 2019. I have been teaching in Phuket since 2018 and I began working at HeadStart in 2019. Ever since my first day, I have been amazed by the dedication and professionalism of my colleagues. I have also loved getting to know the students, parents, and the wider HeadStart community. During lessons I strive for all children in my class to make outstanding progress in all facets of their education. It is a real joy to see their development over the year. I believe that children are capable of so much, and it is our duty as parents and educators to ensure that we provide the support necessary to help them reach their potential. If you ever have any questions then please feel free to contact me to discuss them. I am happy to take the time to ensure that we are working together to inspire a love of learning!
