I joined St Andrews International School 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. Recently, my achievements can include the Annual Internal Quality Assessment (IQA), where all of areas assessed (e.g. planning, teaching and teaching materials etc.), meet the target of ‘Very good’.
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 Physics and Science at Kularb Wattana School and was an Administrative Assistant at Bangkok Patana School. I also taught Thai Language and Culture at St. Andrews International School (Sammakkee).
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 really good.”
“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.”
