Our Team

We are committed to providing highly qualified, experienced, globally minded and truly international-minded teachers, who are passionate about their profession and who enjoy working in multi-national classroom environments. We are aware that one of the most important people in your child’s life is their teacher. Our teachers foster and support each student to reach their maximum potential and are committed to constructing a Culture of Achievement in an environment where students are energized, engaged and empowered to become active participants in their communities.

Our teachers promote the development of attitudes and values within an international curriculum and teaching environment that supports independent learning, confidence and global understanding.

Professional Development of our teachers is an on-going priority to The Apple Tree to further enhance their teaching skills. Annually, the school provides experts from overseas to train and work with our teachers throughout the school year.

Our teaching staff consists of professional teachers who possess degrees in either Early Childhood Education (both Ba’s and/or graduate degrees) or a related child development field. Teachers are trained in the IPC programs and have time built into their schedules to work with their age level colleagues to share ideas and teaching strategies. They actively attend professional develpment seminars each year in Early Childhood Education to be updated in the field.

 

Each staff member is certified in CPR and First Aid.

Hi, I'm Marina

Position: Curruculum coordinator, Lead Teacher
Languages: English, Russian, basic level of Chinese & Korean
Qualification and Training: A degree in Medicine from the University in China, IPC teacher training course, Jolly Phonics teacher training course, Reading A-Z training, Communication workshop training, Foundations of Kindermusik, Lego Education training, First Aid Certificate.

I joined The Apple Tree Almaty International Preschool as a teacher in 2011.  To me, this Pre-School is very special and unique in many ways. First, it is different from other kindergarten or schools because teachers approach kids in such a loving a friendly manner that demonstrates respect and acceptance. We also teach them to be respectful of others, be responsible for their own actions and their belongings. Second, I find this school to be better equipped with high-quality educational resources and programs that promote child’s development in different areas. In addition, the Apple Tree preschool is a truly international place where I meet parents and children from different countries and diverse cultural backgrounds.  Finally, working with children is fun and exciting for me. Every day is full of new experiences! It is a real joy for me to see how children grow, succeed in study and social life, and that, as their teacher, I have great influence in their lives. I love children and believe that every one of them is different and unique, and all of them deserve to be loved and to learn new things in a best way.

I really like teaching and assisting children, communicating with them, playing, joking and having fun. As a teacher, I am sure that infancy and first school years are crucial stages in each child’s life. They form a child’s self-image, attitude towards learning and the world itself. That is why I and my co-workers try to make the children’s life in the school full of nice and vivid memories.

Hi, I'm Aiza

I absolutely enjoy teaching kids, talking to them, listening to them, helping them understand their needs, appreciate their talents and help them improve in any sphere they are ready to improve. I think, my role as a teacher is to help them to learn how to build strong communication skills, be resilient, flexible, responsible, kind and friendly. I also think that building strong academic skills is very important for a positive self-image.

Hi, I'm Natalya

I am very happy to work at the Apple Tree Almaty International Preschool, because here I have a chance to live in a world of frankness and sincerity. Children cannot deceive! Their eyes are crystal and full of true emotions - be it love, happiness or anger. Being a teacher is not just a job for me, it is my state of soul. I cannot imagine my life without children’s laughs, their loving eyes and a million of questions “WHY???”. I enjoy what I do and believe it is very important to be a teacher, to help the little ones become confident and happy, inquiring, imaginative and inventive. That’s why I never rest and always try to find something to amaze kids. I learn to me more and more creative, just like my kids learn! Every day I am happy to share my passion, my love and care, and I feel the children respond to me in the same way. I hope I did manage to find a key to each child’s heart, as I see kids are happy to come to the kindergarten!
