Hi everyone! My name is Sean Bizley and I’m from the U.K. This is my fifth year at ISM and it feels great to be part of such a thriving and motivated school community. I’m now beginning my 28th year as a language teacher, during which time I have taught three languages in four different countries. I thoroughly enjoy working with such wonderful students at IS Manila and once again, I am very much looking forward to making an active contribution to English, EAP, Science and Social Studies lessons in 2015-16. I enjoy incorporating technology into my teaching, so I hope that my Grade 5 students will benefit from a hands-on learning experience. In addition, I am also involved in ATAC activities, coaching the Midgets B soccer team for the 4th year in succession.
Hello! I am Ken Rafinan. I am currently in my second year working for ISM as the Grade 5 and 6 ESL Teaching Assistant. Every day spent with these students has been a valuable teaching and learning experience for me. I collaborate with Grade 5 teachers to offer additional in-class support to all of our students in ISM’s core classes, as well as in EAP with Mr. Bizley. It is a privilege to be a part of and contribute towards your child’s language journey here at this school.
We are both happily anticipating another productive, enriching, and successful year for all our students. Welcome to Grade 5!
