ERNESTO FLORA (BSc) - Year 5 & 6
Hello everyone! I am Ernesto Flora, commonly known as “Ernie" for my family, “Ernesto” for my friends and colleagues and “Eru” for my Japanese friends since they find it hard to say the first two names that I have! You may find my name, maybe, to sound Spanish, but, I am a 100% Filipino, born in a small province called “La Union” located in the Northern part of the Philippines. I first started my career as a college instructor after my graduation in 2011, teaching students at all levels (1st year to 4th year) focusing on the major subjects related to hotel and restaurant management. After that I, enrolled in a Japanese school in the Philippines which gave me the opportunity to live in Japan and enjoy its unique culture for three years. Although, I am new to Hatyai, I have been teaching primary students English, in a private school in Nakhon Ratchasima. I am very enthusiastic to work here at Bloomsbury International School Hatyai, knowing its reputation as an “intercultural school community” offering high quality education while fostering the values of “curiosity, ambition, respect and diversity”.
