Working at the Surat Thani International School was an incredible experience. I had the pleasure of teaching the Bears kindergarten class. This was my first time teaching this age group and I felt a bit daunted, at first. The support available from Peter and Meredith, as well as my other colleagues, put me at ease immediately. There was never a challenge that I didn’t have the resources to overcome. The leadership team set me up for success from the start. It was refreshing to be in an environment where everyone is on the same page with the same goal of opening children’s minds.
At STIS, we are given so much freedom to teach the way we feel is the most comfortable and effective for students and teachers. The teacher office was always a great place to comfortably exchange teaching tools and styles. In addition, Peter is always available for advice and solutions. Never once did I feel any hesitation to ask for help, because everyone is so approachable and easy to talk to. Also, there are loads of materials that are readily available and well-organized. STIS is a great place to teach and I am so proud to have been a part of it.
