Jakarta International School
Elementary Teacher
Jul 2006 - Jul 2013

Worked as a Grade 3 classroom Teacher for few years where I had in particular helped students understand the value of learning objectives with success. Also helping students realise exactly what is expected and how they can achieve their goals plus guiding syudents to focus more clearly on tasks. I also facilitated effective self and peer assessments, as there are clear criteria and objectives to assess against, encouraging children to take more responsibility for their own learning.
I mantained differentiation in the classrooms by varied learning styles to make teaching and learning effective. I have planned imparting work set at an appropriate, but challenging, level. By conveying my own enthusiasm for my subjects helped my students develop more confidence and a better understanding of each part of the curriculum. I sought especially to find new ways of presenting familiar ideas, to ensure that my students gained as much understanding as they could.
I have applied my abilities in problem solving, people management and motivation in the classroom.I am accustomed to working in a multicultural environment that emphasizes inclusion. I introduce concepts into curriculum related to life and social skills.
