Hello! I am Karen, the new Head of Operations at Swiss School in Singapore. I will be responsible for running the day-to-day operations of the school and provide a positive learning environment for the SSiS community.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Communications, I started my career working as an executive in several multinational corporations. However, I had always been deeply passionate about educating our next generation, and my experiences in this field began as early as an internship as a pre-school educator and two-week trip where I volunteered to teach English to children in Banda Aceh, Indonesia. The satisfaction of seeing children gain confidence and making a real difference to their lives filled me with joy!
Hence, after over 10 years as a corporate executive, I decided to follow my heart and fully immerse myself as an educator, taking up various roles over the last five years such as teaching, training, operations, marketing, and general management.
I noticed the tight-knit and family-oriented school community and culture here.
I am looking forward to leveraging my experiences and make a positive contribution to SSiS!
