Staff Profile: Clarissa Poolton

Clarissa Poolton - Early Years Foundation Teacher at British International School, HCMC

F2 Teacher

Each day in the Early Years offers an unpredictable adventure awaiting me. One day I can be in a dinosaur party and the next day I can be grooving in 'Dough Disco'. The greatest thing about children is their never-ending interest, and this leads to endless fun and learning. Surely, the process will never be complete without a few funny (and sometimes messy) mishaps that can be a bit frustrating. But in the Early Years, the mess and the quirks are all part of it, and when I deliver something and witness the awe and engagement in my children, then that's more than enough to keep me going.

Bachelor of Science, Child Development and Education Minor in Special Education, Miriam College

Clarissa joined BIS through its EYFS Graduate Programme in 2013, shortly after obtaining her degree in Child Development and Education. Prior to this, she taught various subjects in an exclusive boys’ school in Manila for her teaching practice. She also has significant experience in teaching language and literacy skills to young children in a community school. Through the course of her programme in BIS, she has taught across different levels in EYFS and has truly enjoyed supporting the progress and development of the children in the classes she did her practice in. She has a variety of interests which includes cooking, baking, reading, discovering new and cultural places, and keeping fit.
