Alex is joining Dover Court after teaching for 4 years in the U.K. in an outer London school, where she has absolutely loved the many challenges and rewards that teaching has to offer. At her previous school, she took on the role of EAL Co-ordinator, as well as actively participating in many pastoral responsibilities; these included running the Year 8 School Council and mentoring more vulnerable pupils.
Alex is a firm believer in the importance of learning other languages in order to gain insight into other cultures and see the world from different perspectives. Through the learning of languages, we can interact with the world around us in a far more meaningful way and this is something that Alex strives to put across to the pupils she teaches. Alex has high expectations of her students; this stems from her belief that all pupils are capable of succeeding with hard work and dedication. She is committed to ensuring that her lessons are both fun and engaging, while also being challenging for all.
Aside from her love of teaching, Alex enjoys travelling to new places and is very much looking forward to the many countries she will be able to explore around Singapore, as well as Singapore itself! She is truly excited about this new adventure and cannot wait to meet the staff and pupils of DCIS.
