It shouldn’t matter how slowly
a CHILD learns,
as long as we are encouraging them
not to stop.
-Robert John Meehan

I was born in Angeles City, Philippines. I attended Holy Angel University from High School to College and graduated in 1999 with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught in both private and public schools for 14 years before I moved to Dubai. My experiences in these schools have not only enhanced my teaching skills but have kept my passion for teaching alive. I just love having the opportunity to guide and teach little minds. It always gives me a sense of fulfillment beyond words when my guidance helps them learn and discover their potentials.

In 2014, I decided to continue my teaching journey in Dubai, leaving behind my family. Looking back, seven fruitful years have already gone by and here I am still part of this wonderful and amazing institution. Indeed, it is a privilege to be given the trust to be one of the guides and mentors of SISD, who value excellence and give the utmost concern to staff and students. May I always be impartial, sincere, and dedicated. I look forward to many more years of collaborative teaching and learning at SISD.
