Facilitators of learning

Create. Encourage. Inspire.

The people that form our SMN family come from all walks of life, backgrounds, and cultures. Each one brings something special to the mix that adds flavor and intrigue to the success of our school. The Faculty and Staff of SMN are a colorful blend of individuals. The Indonesian nationals each bring a unique taste and talent from their diverse respective regions, while the international expatriates stir up the melting pot with a creative blend of perspective and style. Together, something special happens here at SMN.

Kindergarten Principal

Watching young minds and hearts open up to new discoveries about the world around them and realizations about themselves is one of the greatest yet simplest joys. I get to experience these amazing miracles every day at Mutiara Nusantara Kindergarten. It is an absolute joy for me and the KG team to love and lead these precious little ones in their fresh journey of life.

Elementary Principal

Each student is God’s masterpiece, uniquely created to serve His divine purposes. When we truly believe this, we should also realize that the school is where student spend the majority of their time. It is a place where students not only gain knowledge or academic achievement, but also grow as individuals that God intends for them to be. I am so blessed to be part of this process where we can see the seeds of greatness that God plants in each student to grow and bloom. Our task as a school is to create a healthy environment, both caring and challenging, as well for our students to develop their character, academic ability and spiritual life.

Secondary and Jr. College Assosiate Principal

I’m really grateful that God placed me in education area, a wonderful environment for young people to learn many things. At Sekolah Mutiara Nusantara we can see young people growing in a community that leads them to gain great success in the future through knowledge and the love of God. They are challenged to be lifelong learners and share the love of God they experienced at SMN and I believe these young people will be “Pearls of the Nation”.
