I’m a passionate PYP play-based early years teacher trained in New Zealand and currently teaching at ISHCMC in Ho Chi Minh City. I am committed to fostering a positive, safe and welcoming learning environment which provides children of all ages agency. I have been an educator for many years. Firstly as a high school PE teacher, gymnastics coach and massage therapist then retraining about 12 years ago as an early years teacher. All of these shaped me as the educator I am today. I consistently look closely at my philosophy deciding what is important to me when designing my environment to honor the image of the child, families and educators, where all can thrive and be co constructors of the children’s learning.
