I am very excited to return to BCCIS for my sixth year. Hello! My name is Pakinam Elwy, and I am excited to return to BCCIS for my second year in the Early Childhood Department and I anticipate creating many wonderful memories together. I received my teaching degree from Modern Montessori International (MMI) in the United Kingdom. I worked in the Montessori environment for 4 years, followed by 3 years in international curriculum. Children entering Kindergarten are experiencing a very magical time of their lives where every moment lends itself to learning and growing. I understand the desire to provide your children with every available opportunity to develop and succeed. Along with my professional training, I believe my personal experiences have given me special insight and knowledge which enhances my teaching abilities. The nurturing, loving environment at BCCIS gives children a sense of security, so learning occurs naturally; the children have so much fun. Indeed, learning and play go hand in hand. I’m looking forward to another great school year at BCCIS!
