Education: Diploma in Early Childhood and Care Education, Teachers’ Certificate in Primary Education

I joined IPS in February 2009 after having taught for five years in Roman Catholic primary schools, and seven years at Clavis International Primary School. During the five years, I have worked with the Bureau of Catholic Education; I was part of the group of teachers implementing the “Inclusive Pedagogy” programme of this institution. I moved to Clavis International Primary School in 2002 when the school was seeking accreditation as an IBPYP school, and I participated in that process.

I have mostly worked with 5 to 6-year-old pupils although I have taught Classes 4, 5, and 6 for a few years. As a teacher, I prefer teaching young children as their spontaneity, curiosity and cheerful attitude make teaching and learning more fun.
