” To err is human”

I am Marina F. Ocal, a dedicated and passionate teaching assistant, with over nine years of experience working in the education sector, supporting classroom teachers at all age groups.

I am Filipino citizen who has worked here in Dubai for almost a decade. I am happily married with my husband, Ronaldo, with who I have two children: Jhon Lordy and Joanne Marie. They are now both studying in elementary and high school, respectively.

My favorite pastime is singing English and Filipino songs. Singing is my favourite way to relax, especially during this pandemic.

Furthermore, I worked as a teaching assistant at Planets Montessori and edu Fun Nursery in Al Ain from 2010 until 2016. I have been at SISD since 2017.

To be part of the SISD family is really a great honor for me and I do believe that my contributions will ensure the success of the pupils and of the school. My vision is to make our student globally competitive and responsible, and to ensure that they understand and appreciate that education is the key to have a better and harmonious life. It is a dream come true to teach and share what I learned and to see them succeed.
