Sarah Bailey
, Early Learning Centre, Bangkok
Sawadeeka! I’m a passionate teaching-artist in dance and visual art education. My job allows me to combine creativity, collaboration and community - everything I’m passionate about! I’m fortunate to work in a school which emphasizes the Expressive Languages within its curriculum and project based learning. As an Atelierista at the Early Learning Center in Bangkok, Thailand, I work from a conceptual approach to strengthen student learning by embodying big ideas - physically and visually. Concept based learning in the Arts facilitates collaboration with other teachers outside the Arts and brings more meaning to project-based learning. With over 20 years experience in Arts Education, I find joy in my work because it’s ever-evolving.
