Upon completing my undergraduate studies in Cognitive Science, I worked for a year in a learning centre for children who experience learning difficulties. This led me to pursuing a Masters with special educational needs in the UK with the University of Exeter following which I joined BSKL as an Assistant Teacher in Nursery. Whilst waiting to start my respective courses, I spent my time giving private tuition. After completing one academic year in Nursery, I decided to pursue my Postgraduate Certificate in Education (International) which I recently completed. I was as an Assistant Teacher in a Reception class for one term before I was assigned the role as Nursery Class Leader and moved to work with a class of Pre-Nursery children. Now, I lead a class of both Nursery and Pre-Nursery of the Nursery Unit in BSKL's Early Years Centre.
I was born and raised in a family of four in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. My first experience leaving my hometown was when I moved to Sarawak to pursue my undergraduate degree. After returning to KL for a brief period of two years, I went to the Exeter in Devon, UK. These experiences have taught me that I prefer living in the country side or in small towns that are not as busy as KL. I am now married and live a distance away from the city which I enjoy very much. My husband and I share a passion for cooking and I also like to bake. After a tiring day/week, I like to unwind with a good book or by watching some of my favourite shows. My main reason for pursuing a career in the education line is because of my passion for children and knowledge. I enjoy interacting with children particularly children in their early years and being a part of their learning journey. It brings me great joy to see them grow and develop in their own unique ways.
I believe student happiness stems from feeling valued and safe. Our very young learners feel
valued when their voice is heard and we show that we are interested in what they have to say or show us. They feel safe when we approach them with positivity provide them with a warm and welcoming environment. Some indicators of student happiness that I look for in the Early Years is when a child is excited and looking forward to come to school each day.
