Theresia Listya was born in Indonesia. She completed a Bachelor of Social Science in Communication. She started teaching piano many years ago and realised that she loves teaching and working, especially with young children. She took on a role as a PYP Early Years and Primary School Music teacher as her first international school experience in Jakarta. Theresia later moved on to another international school working as a Primary School Teacher while also finishing a Master Degree in Education. She moved to Kazakhstan 3 years ago with her family and has been enjoying it ever since.

Theresia believes that young children will be successful throughout their lives if they are empowered to express themselves creatively, leading to confidence and effective communication. She looks forward to immersing her students in art and music to foster a sense of cultural awareness and enhance critical thinking skills.

In her free time, Teresia enjoys learning languages, baking, crafting and travelling. She is so excited to share her love of music and art with the KIS community.
