Staff Profile: Angelica Sirisena

Angelica Sirisena

Year 1 Class Teacher (1AS)

Angelica was born and raised in Hong Kong although her family roots originate in Sri Lanka. She graduated from King’s College London with a BSc in Biology and then completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Primary Education at the Institute of Education, University of London.

 

Angelica taught in London for nine years, initially as a classroom teacher and then as a subject leader. Being a firm believer in lifelong education, she studied part-time whilst teaching to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate in Psychology and a Masters degree in Psychology of Education. Angelica is a member of the British Psychological Society where she keeps up-to-date with new developments in Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Educational Psychology.  

Angelica is passionate about inclusive education and was the SEND Coordinator at her previous school, achieving the National Award for SENDCo.  Angelica has taught in every year group across Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.  As a mother of two young sons, she has gained a wealth of first-hand experience in child development and early childhood education.

Angelica enjoys a variety of sports including tennis, hockey and swimming.  She also loves music, having learnt the piano as a child and is currently teaching herself the ukulele. One of Angelica’s favourite things to do is build craft projects with her two boys; the messier the better!

Angelica moved to Singapore with her family in 2015 and she is delighted to be teaching at DCIS.
