Early Learning Center Associate Teacher
Bachelor of Education







Ibu Yani’s teaching journey started in 2005 when she graduated from a Jarkata University with a major in English Education. Since then she has gained experience of teaching classes from Pre-school to Grade 3.  Ibu Yani brings a wide range of knowledge and skills to her teaching role at ISB including those based on the Montessori philosophies and the Primary Years Program. She joined our Early Learning Team in 2014.

Ibu Yani’s heart lies with educating young children and being able to share in the joy of their learning and the expression of their ideas and thoughts.  She has a creative imagination and can often be spotted deeply engrossed in a dramatic role-play scenario with a group of students.

She enjoys reading, cooking and sewing during her spare time.  Her creative talents are often called on in the Early Learning Center to design and make new costumes for the role-play area and for our class performances on stage.

Why ISB? “I love how children at ISB have the access, and opportunity, to interact and learn with others from different classes and ages.  At this school it is a pleasure to be able to let children explore and observe nature though our beautiful school environment with trees, birds and other wildlife (we even have a squirrel who visits from time to time). I have discovered that working with our students inspires me to continue my goal of being a life-long learner.”

Being surrounded by our Early Learning students makes me a cheerful and happy person.  Everyday they make me laugh and smile.  I wish for our students to grow in their health, happiness and intelligence”.
