    MINYAN Teacher

    I have been working with kids for the last 7 years and earned my Early Learning and Childcare Diploma. I came from the family where both parents were teachers, so I have been involved in various activities with kids for a long time. I am bilingual and speak English and Mandarin (hopefully will be able to apply my skills in teaching kids to speak Mandarin – if they wish)! I pride myself in being a good role model, while making learning fun. I am patient, caring and genuinely care for the health and safety of children. I LOVE doing crafts with kids and encouraging their creativity and independence.
