Semarang Multinational School teacher

Betty Caraen

Betty comes from Manado, North Sulawesi. Betty studied at Hasanuddin University in Makassar South Sulawesi. When she heard there was a position at Semarang International School and the position involved teaching a small group of children from international backgrounds she was immediately interested and extremely pleased to be appointed. In 1996, Betty started to work at Semarang International School. A few years later, she was asked to teach maths, ESL, science, social studies in addition to Bahasa Indonesia to the senior students from year 4 to 8. This year Betty will continue to work in the senior class with Mr. Jordan. In June 2004, she was appointed to be a Head Indonesian Teacher. One of her important tasks is to be the role model for Indonesian teachers, demonstrating attitudes of carrying, professionalism, support, and high academic expectations for all students. In June 2011, Betty was invited to attend the Teacher Exchange Program at Macaulay Primary School in the United Kingdom. It was very valuable experience for her. She learned a lot of things there especially the way Macaulay Primary School implements the International Primary Curriculum. She is currently attending the Master Program at Semarang State University (UNNES). Betty believes the best things about working at Semarang International School are the students, the professional and supportive staff, and the great community atmosphere that comes from being a small school. It is lovely to see many age groups learning and playing together. It is certainly an excellent place for children to develop an appreciation of different cultures and positives social skills. She is looking forward to more enjoyable and challenging years at Semarang International School.
