Welcome to Grade 1 EAL (English as an Additional Language). As the newest member of the Grade 1 Team I am excited to have joined such a language diverse grade level. Our students come from around the world and bring a wonderful mix of mother tongues to enrich our learning environment. I am looking forward to working with students in class as well as in targeted small group lessons to progress their academic English language as they inquire, wonder, explore, experiment, and learn this year.
Whilst I am from New Zealand I have spent most of my adult life living and working internationally (Tanzania, Canada, Belgium, and China). My son, Jacob, has entered Grade 10 at UNIS. It is a pleasure to be here and have Hanoi as our current home away from home.
I look forward to meeting you as the year unfolds. Please feel free to contact me at any time should you have questions or queries specific to our EAL programme or your child’s English language learning journey.
