About Us

 

SUJITRA LAORNUAL (President)
  • Furthered her studies in Charleston, West Virginia (USA).
  • Received training in medical assistance at Ohio State College and in psychology training in Youngstown, Ohio.
  • Worked as a medical assistance for 15 years in East Liverpool, Ohio. 
  • Was a substitute teacher at St. Aloysius School, East Liverpool, Ohio for more than 5 years.
  • Served for one term as the President of the East Liverpool Women's Auxiliary at East Liverpool Hospital. 
 
   Sujitra Laornual travelled to the US to further her studies while still in high school.  After living, studying and working in the US for almost 20 years, she finally returned to Thailand.  Not long after helping her three children adjust to the new exotic environment of Thailand, she soon found herself looking for work that would allow her to use her strong native-like English skills and organizational intelligence.

  She was invited to join International School Bangkok (ISB) as an elementary librarian but not long afterwards and unbeknownst to her, the then high school counseling head at ISB reviewed her profile and thought she would be perfect for the time-consuming, demanding and stressful job of high school registrar that required the job holder to tactfully deal with parents and students as well as comply to the strict rule of complete confidentiality.  And it was in this role that she flourished and ended up helping almost 3,000 high school graduating students during her 18-year career as high school registrar.

   As if that wasn’t enough to fill her plate, she took on part-time work after working hours with exchange program companies helping students with their problems while overseas, being a key speaker at information sessions and orientation camps and advising parents and students on exchange program opportunities and preparation. With a wealth of experience and knowledge, Sujitra joins EduDee as President and a key educational consultant.

  • Licensure in Physics
  • M.S. in Secondary Education with Licensure in Integrated Earth Science/Chemistry
  • B.S. in Chemial/Physical Oceanography
  • Taught in US high schools for more than 5 years

 Sabrena L. Baiagern is an international educator with roughly 10 years of teaching experience in the USA and at a well-known international school in Thailand.  She has a M.S. in Secondary Education with licensure in integrated earth science/chemistry and physics and as she is certified in Education Technology and Instructional Literacy (COETAIL) her use of technology enhances student learning. 

   Despite her reputation for being quite firm as a teacher, she always has a smile on her face and her students find her warm, welcoming, dedicated and caring. She thus has very good rapport with students, parents, colleagues and administrators.  She also thrives at helping students become more well-rounded by serving as an extracurricular activity adviser. 

   In addition to working with students from low socioeconomic status to students that are more well off, she also has much experience with English-as-a-second-language (ESL) learners and special-needs students.  Thus she is often paired up to co-teach with colleagues in classrooms with high levels of diversity in student language and comprehension.  

   Her bilingual abilities have been put to good use by the Thai government for the Thai-to-English translation of student and teacher science texts as well as for many research studies.  Sabrena brings even more unique skills and insight to the EduDee table as she has herself studied in the US and actively participated in a Thai students’ organization to present Thainess to foreigners.  She thus possesses a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with our team and all the individuals for whom we help provide educational solutions.
