I have been teaching for more than 10 years. I started teaching English and Mandarin in Taiwan since 2000. Then in 2005, I moved to Bangkok, and I have worked as a language teacher (Mandarin) at various international schools until now. I earned my master's degree in Bilingual Education in 2011. I have a lot of experience in teaching Mandarin to children from Nursery up to High School.
As I have been teaching in international schools for quite some time, I've always enjoyed staying with all students from various nationalites and backgrounds. I have found that the school environment and the professional team at school are really important to each student's learning.
I think that St. Andrews International School Bangkok is an excellent school with a professional school team, fine facilities, a warm environment, and offers a well-designed curriculum to make students' great achievement. Based on these conditions, I really think St. Andrews will provide me with a great environment to teach and opportunities to push and improve myself. I'm very happy and appreciate the opportunity to teach in St. Andrews, and I'm looking forward to seeing the professional development of the whole school.
I'm married and have been living in Bangkok for more than 10 years. I enjoy living in Bangkok because of the sunshine, nice people and delicious Thai food. I have a small daughter who is two-and-half years old. I'm a kind person with patience and a good temper. I'm outgoing and love to stay with family and friends. I like to listen to music and watch movies.
The best thing I like is travelling; I have been to many places such as Los Angeles, Shanghai, Tokyo, Seoul, Hong Kong and Macau. I love to discover the different cultures in each place. I also like to exercise such as jogging and yoga. I believe one's health is the most important thing. I hope I will keep my life moving forward with more amazing things going on.
I find St. Andrews to be a great school with professional school team, organised environment, good facilities and also nice staff/students.
