Self Introducion

I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design (USA), a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics and a Master of Professional Communication from University of Sydney (Australia). Having worked in higher education sectors in Hong Kong and Australia and local schools, teaching has been, for most of the time, my profession. I believe that teaching is more than just passing on information. People can acquire rote knowledge on their own, what matters far more is showing learners how to use this knowledge and how to think for themselves; to reason, analyze, and think logically and to perceive principles and connections of ideas. Teaching in Hong Kong has been utterly fascinating and unparalleled. I marvel at the progress children make and at the development of their curiosity, critical sense and imagination, despite of the comparably constraining socio-cultural environment. In our classroom, English is not another foreign, possibly boring, subject to be mastered in order to enter competitive primary schools; English is a living language. Everyday, the quality and quantity of what my students say and express never fails to surprise and delight.
