Meet our teacher Ms.Webster

Monica Webster

Year 9-11 Coordinator & Music Teacher

 

1.      What brings you to Léman International School Chengdu?

There are amazing opportunities for students and staff at LIS to be involved with organisations which will enrich their experiences and education - the Julliard Performing Arts programme, for example. I am really excited to be part of providing those opportunities to students both in and out of the classroom.   

2.      Can you please introduce yourself to our LIS community?

I graduated from the University of Aberdeen with a Bachelor of Music with Education in 2011. I have spent my teaching career in Scotland with the exception of one year in China from 2018-19. I am looking forward to being back - I have heard lots of good things about Chengdu! I think it is important to stay active in the Arts and I have performed as a trumpet player in a wide range of musical styles including classical, jazz, rock and ska. I hope to find performing opportunities in Chengdu. 

3.      How are you going to work with your students to encourage them “To Be Ambitious”?

I am looking forward to working with students on their confidence and resilience. Music is such a great subject for developing these traits. We learn to give ourselves the freedom to make mistakes and try again. We learn to have the courage to take risks, to perform in front of a room full of people. We learn to improvise, to adapt. Young people who have the confidence to risk making mistakes and the resilience to recover from them will not be held back by fear of failure. Then, they are ready to "Be Ambitious"! 

4.      What do you like to do outside of school?

I enjoy being creative - as well as playing instruments, I enjoy painting and baking. I also enjoy outdoor pursuits such as hiking and am looking forward to exploring the areas around Chengdu. 

5.      What do you plan to bring to the school? 

There is a huge range benefits to having a quality Arts education and I hope to provide a range of opportunities to learners at LIS to help them access these benefits. I intend to establish ensembles at the school, initially teacher-led but adding student-led ensembles in the future.
