TEACHING ASSISTANTS' PROFILES
TABITHA RODRIGUEZ (BA) - Nursery
My name is Ms. Tabitha Melodias Rodriguez. I’m a Filipino and am currently working as a Teaching Assistant in the Nursery classroom at Bloomsbury International School Hatyai. I have a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, majoring in General Science from Divine Mercy College, Philippines. I have worked with different learners for the past 8 years. I’ve been living in Thailand for more than 6 years and I used to be a Primary Science and Health teacher in a Thai government school. Being an educator for me is not just something that I am truly passionate about it is my first love. I enjoy talking with children and helping them to discover and develop their own abilities and skills and encouraging them to give their best in everything they do. In my free time, I enjoy reading, travelling, listening to music, doing different types of thrilling activities, singing and dancing. Working with young learners has taught me to be more patient, understanding, and to enjoy every minute of the learning process.
KUFIRDA RAYORKHALEE (BA) - Reception
My name is Kufirda Rayorkhalee and I am a Teaching Assistant for the Reception classroom. I graduated from Huachiew Chalermprakiet University with a degree in Liberal Arts, majoring in English. I used to be a trainee at Kuwait Airways and Grand Oliver Hotel where I learned to do things which I could never do before and had a great chance to learn about life and meet new people. The reason why I apply for this position is because I think working with kids is amazing and much better because kids are open to speaking their minds, being silly, and make the work day so much more interesting. My most important qualifications are being attentive and patient. I really appreciate the chance to be a part of Bloomsbury's staff. My hobbies are surfing the internet, watching movies and listening to music.

So, I decided to work as a cooperative student in Kid’s club at Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra Golf & Spa Resort in 2017 where my passion in educating children grew. Currently, I am the Teaching Assistant in Year 1 at Bloomsbury International School Hatyai. I am really happy to be a part of this school and am working on my dream job.
