With my A-Level grades, I was eligible for a wide spectrum of courses. However being influenced by and was grateful to a teacher who had influenced me positively, I understand the critical role a good teacher plays to impact the lives of their students. Hence I took up teaching as a career and was offered a Teaching Award by MOE.
Upon graduation, I was determined to bless my students with my engaging delivery which was infused with brain-based techniques, as well as a comprehensive set of well-synthesized study materials. I also understand the importance of speaking positively and believing in my students to excel in both academic and character. Using performance coaching strategies, I have also coached many teams to achieve Champions and 1st Runner-Ups in National Entrepreneurship & Robotics Competitions.
After my first posting school, I was also offered a 3-year stint at MOE-HQ during which I was actively involved in the training & professional development of our MOE teachers – focusing on teachers’ learning needs on pedagogy, content and assessment.
In my three years as a Senior Teacher (Science/Physics) before I resigned, I was actively mentoring the younger teachers to excel in their craft of teaching. On a few occasions, I was voted by both fellow teachers & students as “Most Engaging Teacher” & “Most Innovative Teacher”.
