I got a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, Certificate in Teaching Program and Certificate in Pre-school (Early Childhood). I’ve been teaching children with special needs for more than 10 years in my country (Philippines). I am a trained special needs teacher. I had attended numerous seminars/trainings related to special needs (Philippines). I even did coaching in athletics, swimming and bowling (adaptive sports) for special needs students. I used to be a member of Special Olympics Philippines.
I’ve been working in Thailand for 11 years now. I’ve been in several International and Thai schools. Late last year, I applied in this school, and luckily I was hired as a LSA/EAL assistant. It’s a good decision to move in this school because it’s a new environment and a new kind of work in EAL in which I handle some of the EAL secondary students and assist in Year 6 EAL. Supporting children with special needs in secondary level is also new to me. The camaraderie among teachers and staff are awesome. It’s like a big family community.
I’m a jolly, friendly and approachable person. I can adjust myself to everyone. I love to read books, cook and play badminton. In my free time, I watch old movies (DVD), or watch movies with friends.
The working environment here is like a family. Our department head is very supportive to all of us. Teachers, Teaching Assistants and support staff are also friendly and approachable. The location of the school is quite convenient. Our school has the best SEN department among all the International School here in Thailand.
“Ms. Myra is a very good teacher. She never gets angry and she is very nice and friendly. She makes the Lessons fun and full of learning.”
“During the lesson she is always laughing and very kind but sometimes she is quite strict. She helps me in my other lesson aside from EAL.”
“Ms. Myra has helped me with my English lessons and now I’ve improved tremendously because she explains it very well.”
