Over the last thirty years, I have had a diverse educational background, I have made significant contributions to the field of education. Starting my career as the Head of Physical Education and later excelling as the Vice Principal of Student Life, I now hold the IB CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) Coordinator position in Thailand. Throughout my journey, I have always been passionate about fostering holistic learning and community engagement.
