Meet the Teacher

 

Ms. Kris


In my final year of my Business degree, I volunteered to teach children in a community outreach and that is where I discovered the wonderful world of teaching. With eagerness and burning passion, I completed several post graduate degrees in Education here and abroad. I became certified to teach in several countries including USA and Canada.

In my 17 years of teaching, I have been a kindergarten, elementary and special education teacher but what I love most is being an Early Year’s educator. I deemed it an honor to be entrusted with the impressionable minds of so many wonderful young people who ably hold our future in their tender hands. My years to date have been so wonderful, the students taught me so much in a mutually respectful learning environment; I in turn inculcated them with the spirit to cherish knowledge with understanding.
