Welcome to a new school year in Early Years 3 and 4 Marmara Campus! Here is some information about myself and my teaching background. I have been teaching predominantly in Early years for the last 26 years, but I have also taught in Prep and up to Grade 4. My teaching has taken me around the world!!! I began in New Zealand and my travels broadened and I have taught in England, Ukraine and now Turkey for the last 9 years. This is my 6th year at IICS. My focus for the year is to enhance learning through a play-based and outdoor programme. In our class we will also look at how to use different ways of thinking to enhance our learning through ‘Culture of Thinking’ and ‘Making Thinking Visible’ techniques from Project Zero and Dr Ron Ritchhart.
I am looking forward to teaching your child and providing them with an environment that allows them to have stability and which will foster their individual needs but also encourage their creativity.
