My name is Vernette and I come from Lucena City, which is a city south of Manila, Philippines. I studied Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology at the University of the Philippines, Los Banos (UPLB), and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at Enverga University, Lucena City, Philippines. I am a passionate teacher with many years of experience in an ESL program for Korean and Japanese students at the University of the Philippines, and recently in a government school in Thailand. I have also worked in educational settings in the UK and the Middle East. My journey at HeadStart International School started as a Learning Support volunteer and although it was a brief experience, the challenge in that time was an uplifting experience for me. It is my absolute pleasure to work as an EAL Teacher at HeadStart. Being with our HeadStart children makes me look forward to coming to work every day, and I enjoy being part of a team that is committed to making sure our HeadStart pupils are happy and learning at school.
