Our Teachers
Grace Collantes

Nursery Class Teacher

Bachelor of Science - Major in Child Development Education, Miriam College, Philippines

This is now Ms. Grace’s fifth year at Saigon Star. She is very passionate in early childhood education and the IEYC curriculum. In the past four years, Ms Grace has undertaken several workshops and courses to develop her practice, deepening her decade-long teaching career. Her new role as a Nursery teacher, as well as the Head of Early Years, will truly strengthen a new chapter of opportunities. Ms Grace believes that the triangle of support for children must be equilateral amongst teachers, the school, and their parents. She is looking forward to making a big impact towards a very fruitful year ahead with our school community. 

Being a lifelong learner herself, Ms Grace's teaching practice is inspired by a holistic approach through yoga, mindfulness and environmental protection. When traveling, she enjoys outdoor adventures, such as hiking and scuba diving. Vietnam has been Ms Grace's second home for the past six years, and she hopes to discover plenty more about Vietnamese culture, food, people and history.
