Hi! Welcome to my space, I am a trained teacher and am currently volunteering at my daughter's school library in Permas Jaya, Johor Bahru, Malaysia to help encourage the love of reading for Malaysian students. Once a week at the school, I go in the afternoons and tell stories to a small group of children in English. At the end of the story, we will usually break into smaller groups where they do peer reading or do a craft related to the story. Sometimes, the children also help me set up different displays around the library. Most of the funding for the art and craft materials, displays, and other miscellaneous items around the library this year have been borne by me.
I have taught in various schools throughout the world and am proud to call Malaysia my home. A few years ago, I was invited to present at a local conference here for teachers and just this January, I started a group to train teachers here in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. As of the end of 2019, we have conducted workshops for teachers on classroom management, engaging students, using pictures in the classroom and improving pronunciation in teaching. An educator at heart, I hope that you will join me on this wonderful journey to help improve the lives of all our students here at Pei Hwa 2.
In my spare time, I also like to share teaching ideas and insights that may be of help to other teachers. You can have a look at my youtube channel for my latest discoveries, coming all the way from Sweden and Finland. I have also added some recently created resources that was recently created.
