Hi everyone! I am known as Ms. Jamela to the SAA children and I have been working with Swallows and Amazons since 2019 as the Hornbills’ class teacher. I am the Nursery 1, Egrets class teacher.
I have a foreign degree in Child Development and Education and I hold a Diploma In Early Childhood Care and Education L2 qualification from Singapore’s Early Childhood Developmental Agency (ECDA). I have been in the teaching profession for 14 years and I gained most of my teaching experience in Singapore both in the childcare setting and Montessori setting since 2009.
I took up preschool education for the main reason that I want to be a mother someday. Bringing up children is a tough but fulfilling job. And to help me in my profession, I always carry with me one of Montessori’s quotes that goes “The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” Working at SAA is both wonderful and rewarding. We are a family bound by the central belief in “Putting the EQ into IQ” and to create engaging and stimulating early childhood learning experiences for the children.
Fast forward, I am not only a fulfilled teacher but also a happy mum to a brilliant 3-year-old boy and a wife to a wonderful husband.
