Nukun Techo (Aer)
Aer is both School Director and Head Teacher at Chiang Mai Montessori and guides all teaching and learning at the school. Aer received her Montessori teaching certificate from the Maria Montessori Training Organisation (MMTO), the only Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) college in the UK, founded by Dr. Montessori herself.
Aer holds a further Observation Diploma from MMTO. After her graduation, Aer led a Montessori class of 30 children at the AMI Neighbourhood Montessori Nursery in London before returning to her hometown, Chiang Mai, in 2009. Aer enjoyed her life in London a great deal and feels that leading a class where all schools are subject to stringent government inspection gave her strong grounding in alternative curriculum development within a leading State education system.
Aer also possesses a skill that a teacher can’t simply acquire at college and that is a natural brilliance with children. She has the ability to communicate directly with young children and holds a deep love and respect for the early learner. Aer quickly establishes a lasting bond with each of the children she works with and this proves, time and time again, to be one of her most valuable and admired qualities as a teacher.
In addition to her Montessori qualifications, Aer holds a First Class degree in English from Payap University Chiang Mai where she graduated in the top two of her year.
Aer has much teaching experience in bilingual early years education in Chiang Mai and she feels extremely proud to have the honor of bringing Montessori education to her hometown.
