THE TEACHING TEAM

 

Elementary School Level

 

Dear Parents,

This is my third year at CIA PP. I came all the way from the Philippines and have worked with kids for the past eight years. I completed my studies at the University of San Jose-Recoletos, Philippines and have been a licensed teacher since 2010.

At CIA PP, we work together as a big family, always bearing in mind the well-being of the children as our top priority. Learning is always fun-filled with opportunities for children to verbalize their views and get motivated to learn. Our high-tech facilities and well developed curriculum enables us to facilitate the daily teachings meaningfully and effectively.

“Train a child in a way he would go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6) I believe strongly in moral values development amongst children, too. In addition to being equipped with skills needed to move forward to a higher level, it is crucial to mold and build our children’s moral character. This is the main reason why my teaching methods provide every child with concrete methods in forming good habits. Positive habits form character. Only then, they will learn to become responsible members in the community.

I enjoy teaching at CIA PP. It is the joy of witnessing such tangible positive development amongst our students that keeps me going all the time. Seeing them proactively helping each other be better makes me feel that I have done my job well. Every day is a learning journey with new challenges that create opportunities for me to grow and thrive as an inspiring educator in the children’s lives.

I am looking forward to a great school year. Soar high!

I am a licensed secondary teacher from the Philippines with a Master’s Degree in Management and this is my fourth year at CIAPP International School. I have been teaching in Cambodia for over eight years now.  It has been a challenge and a pleasure. I believe that every child is unique with special talents and abilities that I can help cultivate in order to reach their goals and dreams.

In the classroom my students have the freedom to express their individuality. They are encouraged to ask questions and develop critical thinking. I look forward to creating and maintaining a safe, friendly and caring environment for the students this school year.

I have always been passionate about teaching. I love to witness change within my students from the first day of school to the end of the school year. I believe that it is my mission to instill a love for learning to my students. I attempt to teach with passion and enthusiasm so that each member of my class will develop a desire to become lifelong learners. Let’s be partners in making this school year awesome and great!

Great improvements and new challenges both welcome us all to this new school year. I am Rayzel Daganos, a licensed professional teacher from the Republic of the Philippines. I have been teaching students in private international schools in my country for about 5 years before I moved to Cambodia.  My teaching experiences have optimized opportunities for me to hone my principles in education. This is my third year in this competent and progressive institution, CIA PP International School.

I am convinced that great things are yet to come. Let us embrace it as we build better partnership for the welfare of our children.

I am a Lebanese teacher who has worked with young people both in Vietnam and Cambodia for the past three years. I completed my studies at the Institute of Fine Arts, Lebanon, in 2013 and moved to Vietnam to teach English at the beginning of 2014. I moved to Cambodia earlier this year.

It is a great pleasure to be able to teach and be a part of CIA PP. In the classroom the students are encouraged to question and influence their own learning as much as possible. Participation in group discussion and independent thinking is valued highly and will be focused on during the year. All students are provided with handbooks and every day they will contain homework or general comments about progress and upcoming events. I encourage all parents to write any concerns or questions in the handbooks and I will be happy to respond as best I can.

Looking forward to an excellent school year.

I am an American teacher and I have been working with young people in America and Asia for the past 10 years. I lived and taught in China for three years before moving to Cambodia in the beginning of 2015.

I encourage students to ask questions and try new things. To make mistakes and learn from them. To teach themselves and each other the value and reward of hard work. To find what is important to them and to push themselves beyond what they think they are capable of. I look forward to an excellent and collaborative school year.

Hi. My name is Daryl. I am Australian and have been living and teaching in Asia for the last ten years, five of them spent here in Cambodia. I see CIAPP as a very progressive school with excellent facilities, curriculum and staff, and I am proud to be a part of it again for my second year as a Grade 4 elementary educator.

My classroom strives to balance conventional “book, pen and paper” methodology in partnership with the efficiency and excitement of digital technology and electronic device usage in a student centred learning environment. Students receive constant group and individual feedback on their efforts and are expected to learn from, contribute to, and measure their efforts, against those of their peers with a view to self motivated continuous improvement.

I look forward to a fun, yet challenging, educational and rewarding year with my students in our new Campus 2.

My name is Brian Glasper and I am from the UK. I have been working as a teacher in Phnom Penh now for five years. Before moving to Cambodia I had a long career as a research chemist having both a doctorate and a master’s degree in chemistry. I gained my teaching qualifications in 2009 (TESOL and PTTLS) and started my teaching career in 2010 as a university lecturer of chemistry and Academic English in England. The university students were from non-English speaking countries outside of the European Union enrolling to study undergraduate degrees. While in the UK I also provided English for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants wanting to live in the UK. I have been employed as a teacher in Phnom Penh for all of the years I have been living here and CIA International has been the most professional school that I have had the pleasure to have worked for.  

In the classroom, students are encouraged to participate in group discussions and teamwork as well as developing independent thought and habits of mind. I encourage all parents to write any concerns or questions in the student’s Handbook and I will be happy to respond as best I can.

Hi! My name is Arnel Fortus from the Philippines. I graduated from University of Lipa Batangas with a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science. I’ve been working here in Cambodia as a teacher since 2011. This is my second year as an ICT and Art teacher at CIA PP.

As an Art teacher, my favorite part of interacting with the children is watching them discover through their expressions, wonderment and awe. I hope that together we can use art to communicate ideas and feelings.

Being an ICT teacher, it is an achievement to see the growth of students in technological literacy and increase their ability to use ICT effectively and efficiently.

I look forward to a productive, rewarding and exciting school year.
