Senior Local Teacher
Ms. Betty, a mother of a daughter named Grace, comes from Manado, North Sulawesi. She earned a Master degree cum laude from Semarang State University (Universitas Negeri Semarang) with a specialization in Elementary Education (PGSD). Her career at Semarang Multinational School began in 16th of April 1996. In June 2004, she was appointed to be a Senior Local Teacher and since 2014 she became a Primary Senior Teacher and National Curriculum Coordinator.
She has been teaching various subjects in various classes such as mathematics, literacy studies, genius hour, ESL, science, social studies in addition to Bahasa Indonesia and Indonesian Studies. 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. In her twenty-one years of teaching, 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 loves reading, writing and singing. She also enjoys trying new and adventurous recipes on her family; although she can’t tell that they are as fond as her culinary experiments as she is. One thing her family and her friends said, she is good at cooking Manadonese foods.
She is looking forward to more enjoyable and challenging years at Semarang International School.
