Al Yasat Private School



Monique Kelly Caetano KG1 Class Teacher
Monique has always shown a passion for working with children and engaging in charitable causes which led her on her path to being an educator. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree specializing in Psychology and English from the University of South Africa and then went on to complete her PGCE in Foundation Phase. Monique worked with various children during her education in the fields of teaching, tutoring and au pairing and each experience served as a foundation on which she continues to build upon as her knowledge and experience expands. Her love for travel and exploring new cultures led her to the UAE in 2016 where she worked as a Grade 2 teacher at a Private school in Ajman, which provided her the opportunity to expand her skills of differentiation in a culture rich environment. Monique is a hard-working team player who aims to provide ample learning opportunities for children to experience in an enjoyable and meaningful way. She believes that patience and understanding are the stepping-stones to which great enrichment is achieved and these are vital to ensure that each and every child reaches their full potential. Monique is excited to be entering her second year as part of the Al Yasat Private School family as a KG 1 teacher and looks forward to developing her teaching career here.
