All About Ms. Terry

Kia Ora! I’m Cheryl Terry and I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I’m a keen traveler and hope to pass on my love of exploration and keen sense of adventure to my class here at ISB.

Prior to arriving in Bangkok, I spent two years in Brussels, as well as three years in Shanghai, teaching 4th grade at international schools. Over the last fifteen years I have lived and traveled in many parts of the world: Oceania, Asia, Europe, South America, the Middle East and northern Africa. As well as teaching, I fed my travel bug by working as a tour leader for adventure travel companies.

As a teacher, my hope is to create a stimulating classroom environment where students will be challenged and develop the skills to face an ever-changing world. While building the basic skills is vital to education, problem-solving, cooperative learning, metacognition and integrating authentic tasks into the curriculum are important to enable students to take an effective part in the ‘real’ world.

I believe that education is much more than churning out ‘A’ grade students, and my role as a teacher is to provide a well-rounded curriculum which teaches skills in all areas, be they academic, cultural, sporting or social. I aim to help your child to develop positive learning attitudes and behaviors to enable them to succeed in later life and reflect on their learning. My goal is to inspire students to become life-long learners with a thirst for knowledge, who are willing to take risks and challenge themselves to strive for higher achievements. By providing a safe and secure environment where learning is fun, I believe that students can aspire to reach their goals and recognize their full potential. I’m looking forward to an exciting year ahead!

Through this blog, my professional blog: Terry’s Tales of Learning and the COETAIL technology course I am currently enrolled in, I’m striving to find ways to better integrate technology into my classroom program. I hope to teach students how to use digital tools, build networks and connect with others. Technology is an integral part of the modern world so my aim is to help students build the confidence to navigate and survive in today’s connected digital world.
