Early childhood education provides the building blocks upon which children can shape their future. Ms Jessica strongly believes in promoting a love of learning to establish a strong foundation for lifelong education. In her opinion early childhood education should provide children with the academic, social and emotional tools which they can use to grow and develop into effective learners with a well-rounded worldwide outlook. Early learning should be fun, exciting and educational. As a long time Early Years professional Ms Jessica strives to achieve the best possible learning environment to enable each child to feel safe to explore, initiate learning, and free to express themselves. She models respect, kindness, patience and compassion for students and staff at our school.
She has been with our school since August 2018 and is excited about being part of the continued development and growth of Norwich International School. Ms Jessica prides herself on building a positive atmosphere for children and identifies that strong parent communication is a key to having successful learners inside a classroom.
A longtime resident in Bangkok, she always enjoys learning about Thai culture and exploring new places in Thailand. Outside of the classroom Ms Jessica likes travelling with friends, practicing yoga, as well as hiking snowcapped mountains.
