Ms. Blessa

Ms. Blessa moved to the Cayman Islands in March 2022. When she was young, she used to play the role of a teacher with her playmates as her students. It was her childhood dream and is why she decided to pursue a degree in Education. Eventually, she also became a Licensed Professional Teacher in the Philippines. After 3 years of teaching at different levels, she realised that she truly wants to be a teacher that supports her students in every aspect, enhances their skills and knowledge, and helps them reach their dreams too; to be the one who believes that they can be whoever they want to be! This led Ms. Blessa to pursue her Masters degree in Educational Management, which she is studying towards now. Ms. Blessa also enjoys making crafts, climbing mountains, and looking for the best coffee shop to read and study!

Each student brings with him/her a wealth of talent that simply needs to be discovered and valued.
