About Me

I am originally from the Philippines and have a diploma and a teaching license in BEEd with specialization in Preschool Education. I also have a MA in Education. I have been teaching in international settings for more than 13 years and have been assigned various coordinating responsibilities over the years in my department. I was also a trainer for local and international English and Maths competitions. This is my 2nd year teaching Y5 in MISY Mandalay.

My biggest achievement in teaching each year is to see my lower ability students move up to the mainstream of the class.

Area of special interest

I consider mentoring as one of my best skill, as I believe that learning should not stop to oneself but should be shared to whomever is interested. My passion for teaching children keeps me motivated all the time. I am a team player and at best in collaborating with the other members of the team. I enjoy reading, hiking, swimming and cooking in my free time.
