  • Bianca Ragone
    I am from the U.S. where I earned my Masters Degree in Primary and Special Education. I have 6 years of experience teaching students from preschool to 5th grade in Hawaii, Florida, and most recently in Siem Reap, Cambodia. My approach to teaching is to support the growth of the “whole child” in a fun, safe and orderly learning environment. As a yoga and meditation practitioner and instructor, I also include mindfulness-based practices in the classroom to help my students develop self-regulation, coordination, focus, and bodily and spatial awareness. I am very honored to be a part the of the SIS community!

I was a teacher of English and Media Studies for 11 years in Te Awamutu New Zealand.  Five years ago I married Andrew, 5 days later we left NZ to explore life in other parts of the world. I joined QSI Phuket in 2014 / 15 where I taught technology, cultural studies and intensive English. In 2016 I transferred to QSI Shenzhen where I have taught grades 5 and 6. In my spare time I guess I am still a teacher as I love film, reading and writing.
