hello thereXyTkj7LiE

Dear Parents,


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Chinese International School Manila.  I hope that you and your child are in good health and had a restful summer break. My name is Ms. Andrea Anista and I’m excited to announce that I will be the CARE specialist for your child this year. I can’t wait to meet you and your son/daughter in person once this pandemic is over.


Let me tell you a little about myself. I have acquired more than 20 years of local and international teaching experience. I hold teaching certificates from Arizona Cross Categorical Teaching Certification K-12 for Special Education and Maryland Teaching Certificate K-12 for Special Education and General Education.  My goal is to create a safe learning environment for your child that fosters student engagement and promotes continuous academic improvement.


As a CARE specialist, I will provide support and assistance to your child so that he/she can have a positive and successful learning experience. Through collaboration with the homeroom, subject, and specialist teachers to help your child understand lessons taught in the classroom, encourage completion of assignments, help study for tests, provide accommodations and/or modifications to aid in the learning process, and make continuous academic progress in a safe, structured, and positive environment.


I will communicate with you to keep you informed when your child’s IEP meeting is scheduled, your child’s progress, and the Individualized Educational Program (IEP) documentations. I strongly believe that children get the most out of each school year when parents and teachers work together as a team.


I am looking forward to partnering with you and working with your child to help him/her reach his/her full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.


It’s a great privilege and responsibility to be your child’s CARE specialist this year. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me via email at aanista@cismanila.org.
