Q: Miss Boysen, you are no newbie to our school, how long have you been a Dover Court teacher?
A: It is hard to believe it, but this is my 12th year at Dover Court International School.
Q. What is the best thing about being part of DCIS?
A: I love the children and the support which I always get from the parents.
Q. What do you feel are your strengths as a teacher?
A: I work hard to see and care for the individual student, I want them to know that they are all special to me. I enjoy to read and as result the children in my class always love reading as well. I love to swim and at Dover Court I am very lucky that I am able to teach my own class to swim which is one of my favourite lessons all week.
Q. You have participated in quite a few school events over the years, which ones have you enjoyed the most?
A: I love UN Day the best, as the whole school get to celebrate where we are from and learn about the different countries and cultures in the world around us. I am half German and love sharing that with the students.
Q: We know that you love reading, what was your favourite book growing up?
A: Oh I have so many favourite books depending on how I am feeling. I would have to say it was Enid Blyton - The Magic Faraway Tree, The Wishing Chair and as I got older; Secret Seven. I also enjoyed the Milly Molly Mandy stories by Joyce Lankester Brisley.
Q: What book would you tell our students not to miss?
A: My Year 1 class love stories by Robert Munsch, the children in Year 4 and 5 used to love Anthony Horowitz' The Diamond Brothers Series.
Q: Like many of our students you didn’t spend your childhood in just one place, where did you grow up?
A: I grew up on a small group of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean called Kiribati. The specific island I lived on was Tawara, it was half a mile wide and a mile and a half long. I just loved the island life and I also went to a small international school!
Q. Life in Singapore is not just about teaching. Do you have a favourite part of Singapore and what do you enjoy doing?
A: I love to go hiking around all the nature parks. I have visited all the National Parks in Singapore and my favourite is MacRitchie and Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.
I’ve have been in a team with Miss Boysen for 2 years now and it’s always a pleasure! Miss Boysen is so passionate about teaching and always shows so much care for her students and colleagues. - Miss Lindars, Year 1 teacher
