Teachers

UBT - Ms Priya Latha Santhirasegaran

As an early childhood educator, I believe that every child is special and unique in their own way. A child is a thinking individual who thrives in an enriched environment. With my experience in guiding young children to enhance their skills, I also believe working hand in hand together with the parents to watch their children’s progress. Children will experience the joy of learning by preserving the excitement and curiosity in them through various interesting activities.
I love to explore together with the children where we can invent a masterpiece by putting different ideas together.
As a life-long learner, I have always been keen to upgrade myself to learn and try out new and fun filled activities to incorporate them in the learning environment.

I believe that each child is a unique, capable, creative, smart and independent individual who are entitled to learn and grow in a safe, respected and enriching environment. I will support and nurture these qualities and challenge the children in appropriate manners through the Reggio Emilia approach.
I love to interact with children and help them learn good morals and values in life.  I believe that we can LEARN and GROW together with the children.
Learning should be active, engaging, involved and fun! I am honored to share my experience and knowledge with the families and teachers of 215UBT.

孩子是一粒种子,需要我们用耐心来灌溉;需要我们给予阳光般的笑容去迎对每一个“为什么?”;当嫩芽萌发,我们用知识来田培,我们用爱来播种,希望孩子们能在阳光蓝天下茁壮健康的成长。

Greatness is an inherently dynamic process, not an end point. I reflect the important rule of educating where work is never done. In other words, even after a culture is built, educators are collaborating and making calculated risks, it is necessary for us to ensure that we are consistently checking in, evaluating and acquiring. This will lead to flexibility in adapting the current means on how children may learn better given the great deal of learners of the 21st Century. When educators embrace such values as a lifelong process, children will equally savour the experiences of endless learning. This will heighten their capacities towards solving problems as acquisitions from previous incidences naturally equip them with ways to resolve subsequent and similar situations, simultaneously boosting their potential, resilience and competencies. As Albert Einstein once said, “Example is not another way to teach, it is the only way to teach”. Children are pure where any prior knowledge or skills are either imitated or copied from adults in their life. Thus, the responsibility of teaching by example is equitably significant.

我相信每一个孩子都是非常有能力的:
他们的活动充沛无限,
他们的想象天马行空,
他们的爱天真浪漫,
他们的笑容无比灿烂,
他们有一百种的语言。

I believe that exploring and discovering through play is the child’s innate nature.
I understand the value of offering children hands-on learning that enables them to ponder, express curiosity and accumulate a wealth of life experiences.
I love to be a co-partner and co-researcher alongside the children in their learning. As I build a deeper understanding of each child’s interests and strengths through observation, I can then support in expanding their horizons.

Every child is an unique individual with the right to being treated with
respect, love and commitment. It is my role to nurture the pebbles of wonder and foster positive social-emotional development; and my goal to ignite the love for learning in a reassuring and inviting environment.
I believe in working hand-in-hand with parents and the community to promote curiosity and kindness, as well as instil resilience and adaptability to empower children with the heart and skills to be lifelong superheroes to better this world we live in.

UBT - Ms Charissa Tan

Children deserve to have their thoughts, feelings and opinions respected and should always be given a safe space to express them so the art of communication in them is cultivated and strengthened with practice and guidance. With an environment that is crafted for a variety of learning styles to ensure that all are given equal opportunities to flourish, my vision for the children is not only for them to be guided to grow into independent, capable and confident learners but also compassionate learners as well.
As we work hand-in-hand with families to shape children’s thought processes and perspectives, we are gradually building them up for success in the future; one where they recognize that success is not defined by their mistakes or failures, but by the resilience and courage that springs forth from embracing those failures.

UBT - Ms Yip Jin Wen Janelle

I strongly believe that every child has their strengths and weaknesses and as a teacher, my role is to enhance the children’s strength as well as to work on their weaknesses. I believe that children learn best in topics which they are interested in and as such, opportunities for children to explore, discover, create and even imagine should be provided for them. Aside from education, I also believe that it is important for children to have human values such as respect, compassion, integrity and empathy towards others.

UBT - Ms Jasmine Liu

Every child is like a butterfly in the wind, some can fly higher than
others,
But one flies the best it can.
Why compare one against the other?
Each one is different 
Each one is special
Each one is beautiful

UBT - Ms Lu Shen

爱是相互的,在我以往的工作中我感受到了这一点。我对孩子的爱, 可以变成家长对我的信任,因为我和家长都把爱放在了孩子的身上。
我会用欣赏的目光去注视身边的孩子。平等交往;更要去体察和探明 幼儿的兴趣与需要,并及时提供支持和帮助。我还会以不同的角度去欣赏, 去挖掘他们身上微小的闪光点。
我会加倍努力教育好每一个孩子,不辜负家长对我的信任。当一名幼儿教师,我感到无比自豪!

UBT - Ms Amelia Yap

I believe every child is unique and they learn at different paces using different methods. Our role as teachers is to observe, listen and question in order to further extend children’s thinking and to deepen their understanding of the world. I view the classroom as a third teacher and a safe environment for children to voice out their thoughts, ideas and opinions. To me, teaching a journey where learning takes place not only for the children but also for the teachers and the community.
