Mariana Van Zyl

Principal

I am a native English speaker. I have completed TESOL, TOEIC as well as diplomas in IEYC and IPC in Thailand and Cambodia where I taught English from 2019 – 2021. I have over 5 years experience teaching English in several states in the USA from 2002 – 2008.

I am excited to be part of the team at SAM Kindergarten and I know my international experience is an asset to our school by contributing to the development of our students and staff alike.

I believe each student is different and not every student learns at the same pace. It is important for teachers to form a bond with students as well as parents. Students need to feel comfortable and safe. I encourage creativity and the use of imagination in order for students to do their best work to become great citizens of beautiful Bahrain!
