15 May Coach Marissa Hendroff
Coach Marissa Hendroff just loves Teachers Day
Tomorrow is Teachers Day and Marissa Juanita Hendroff just loves celebrating it.
Even from an early age, she knew her calling was to be a teacher … and she has never deviated from that path.
Today, she is one of the coaches at Global Oak Tree Scholars (GOTS) — an international school based in Shah Alam, Selangor — and she couldn’t be happier.
“I would like to wish everyone at GOTS a Happy Teachers Day. Thank you for all your dedication, love and care. Keep shining!” said Hendroff who has been part of the pre-primary team for over a year.
“I have been an Early Childhood Educator for seven years and have always believed this is the profession for me.
“I’ve never ever wanted to be anything else.”
Hendroff loves her job at GOTS where the pre-primary school uses play-based learning to teach.
Learning through play lets children use their imaginative, planning, higher-level thinking, cognitive skills, math skills, and language skills. Lessons also incorporate thematic units and projects with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy.
Hendroff welcomes GOTS’ ‘Definitely Different’ approach to teaching young children.
“It (play-based learning) is something new in Malaysia but has been found to be a good way to teach young children,” Hendroff said.
“It is a different challenge and experience for me and the kids. They learn from me and there are some things I pick up from them.
“I love my job in GOTS as I love being around kids.
“I feel they listen to me and they look up to me as if I am an important aspect of their lives.”
Asked about the online lessons GOTS has been conducting due to the Movement Control Order (MCO), she said it is a nice challenge.
“I’m teaching young kids so it can be a bit of a struggle due to their attention span. But it is an effective way for us teachers to engage and educate our students.”
