Biography

My name is Ms. Kas. This is my third year at Oakcliff Theme School as an ESOL teacher.

 

I was born in Saigon, attended P.S 106 Elementary School in Bronx, New York, and graduated from Amherst Regional High School in Amherst, Massachusetts.  My college life started in California and completed at Georgia State University.  I am excited to settle down at Oakcliff Traditional Theme School and start another chapter of my life with all the Oakcliff Eagles.  I am looking forward to explore, share, learn, grow and laugh with you all and so make something beautiful for our world.

Educational Philosophy

     I believe students are natural, creative, and active thinker; therefore, my role as an educator is facilitator. I can facilitate the student’s learning process by creating a learning experiences that allow students to take ownership of their learning, build problem solving skills, an offer hands-on activities where student can explore and discovery; Providing opportunity to construct and build upon prior knowledge and past experiences that connect real life with classroom lessons. I approach learning process in this way because I am convinced that learning occurs best when students employ their five senses, work independently and collaborative with peers, place in a natural environment where they will be self-motivated. Lastly, in addition to different theories on discipline, I choose to foster trust and respect in my classroom management plan, because researchers have shown that relationship based on trust and respect has limited and eliminated behavior problems in classroom. As a facilitator, I hope to bring the best out of my student and help them reach the highest potential in their academic career.

“There are things that you can do and I can’t

and there are things that I can do and you can’t

but TOGETHER we can make something beautiful”

 

                  This wisdom from Mother Teresa of the Missionaries of Charity helps me to appreciate and embrace EVERYONE along my path of life.
