Gantamanee (Ying) Narinrat
Ying is originally from Phangnga, Thailand and joined UWC Thailand in 2010. She graduated with a Business Administration degree and later received a diploma of teaching from Phuket Rajabhat University. Prior to joining UWC Thailand, she taught Early Childhood at GreenHouse International School and has worked in a number of international organisations (some small, some global), including schools, hotels, and property companies. Getting to know and working with lots of people has given her the experience to work mindfully and be flexible. As an educator, she believes in “keeping yourself learning in anything is helpful also learning can be enjoyable in every way for both teacher and student.” When our students are engaged and invested in their learning and are truly having fun, that’s a big part of how learning “sticks.” Ying’s passions include travelling, exploring different cultures, and arts and crafts. She is currently involved in doing workshops for Thai teachers and students who work in international settings. She is working to bring inquiry-based and visible thinking to the Thai Language and Culture curriculum.
