Vice Principal, Small World Christian Kindergarten
Tess Baguio is the Vice Principal of Small World Christian Kindergarten. Initially a chemist by training, Tess was inspired to change career directions to the field of education when her daughter entered Small World Christian Kindergarten in 1998. Having found her calling to teach and serve young children, Tess earned her Montessori Diploma from Montessori Teacher Preparation of Washington in the USA, qualified as a Kindergarten teacher with Hong Kong Institute of Education, and earned her Postgraduate Diploma in Special Education (PGDE) from Hong Kong University.

Attracted to Small World by its biblical foundations and Montessori philosophy, Tess joined the school as a teacher in August 2001. During her nine years teaching at the school, Tess has taught both K1 and K2 age groups. Tess is also the Special Education Coordinator (SENCO) for Small World and believes that all children deserve equal opportunities to access the education offered by the school and to reach their true potential. Tess has lived in Hong Kong for 17 years with her husband and the couple’s four daughters.

“It is truly worthwhile to educate the generations of children, preparing them as future citizens and agents of change for tomorrow.”
