I joined St Andrews International School Bangkok in 2011. My personal interest in the teaching profession is rooted in my desire to be involved in the improvement of others’ education and learning. I love to see my students learning with happiness and to feel like they would want to come to their lessons, eager to learn more.
My formal education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Science Education. I have two Master’s Degrees: a Master of Education in Educational Science from Chulalongkorn University and a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and Management from the University of Warwick, UK.
I taught Maths, Science and Physics in couple of Thai Schools. I then became a a Thai Teacher part time and an Administrative Assistant at another International School in Bangkok. I also taught Thai Language and Culture course to new teachers and families before going to the UK for a Master degree.
I enjoy exercise and do it 5 times a week after work, such as jogging, biking, suftskating (beginner though) and boxing. I also go hiking maybe once a month and travelling to new places. I spent a week during long school holidays volunteering at rural Thai schools to teach Math, fun Science and basic English to such lovely and welcoming disadvantaged students.
St Andrews International School Bangkok is a unique school that provides a warm environment for staff. One of our school's visions is to ensure that ‘every child matters’ and this is a vision which is very close to my heart. It makes me want to teach here even more. The approach to teaching here includes the recognition that individual students have different learning styles.
This also helps me adjust my teaching style to suit each individual student, which makes me become a more active and livelier teacher. Also, the students here show other people respect and are polite. Overall, this school provides a family-like workplace where we can talk, share our own ideas and be ourselves.
"Kroo Oat is an awesome teacher. She teaches very well and it is easy to understand what she says as she explains very well. The class are fun as we play small games at times, which helps us understand what we are learning”
“I think Kroo Oat is one of the best Thai teachers I have ever learnt with. She is very fun and kind though she is strict sometimes. She entertains us while we are learning because she is not one of those boring and strict teachers. I hope I learn with her next year.”
“Kroo Oat is a wonderful teacher and very kind and nice. And she takes good care of me, thank you.”
