Cris Is in her second year at FHIS Montessori Daycare, teaching and guiding our infants class (ages 3 months up until 2 years). In addition to her teaching experience with young children in Cambodia and her home country the Philippines, Cris is also a registered nurse with her BS in Nursing.

Cris’s medical background and her gentle manner with our youngest learners is reassuring for our parents and she is actively sought after for advice and information, especially from our first time parents.
Cherriza teaches and guides our Toddler’s class (ages 2-3). Originally from the Philippines, Cherriza has taught in preschools both in the UK and in Cambodia. Her teaching experience in the UK was in a preschool based on the Montessori philosophy and practice. Cherriza’s educational background includes teacher training and music. Cherriza’s previous career as a professional musician has brought a stronger emphasis of music into the world of our very young learners, adding another avenue for creativity.
Marge has been teaching in our FHIS primary program from August 2018 as well as our Summer Camp (July 2018).

Marge was teaching in Cambodia in 2005 until 2013 when she began teaching primary level in an international school in Tunis. Marge resumed her teaching career in Cambodia in 2018. With a BS and a MA in Education from her home country, the Philippines, Marge also has experience teaching the creative arts to primary age students, both here in Cambodia and her home country. Marge’s creativity has contributed to FHIS following the Montessori philosophy and practice into the primary grades.
