International Schools Consortium

International Schools Consortium (iSC) is a nonprofit organization that, since 1986, has offered excellent academic programs to meet the intellectual, physical, and emotional needs of students. iSC has six schools in China — in Chengdu, Qingdao, Wuhan, Wuxi, Tianjin, and Yantai — one school in the UAE, and helps to support various other educational initiatives globally. iSC is a multi-school program, enabling students and teachers to participate in system-wide programs where they can interact with others outside of their immediate school. Students compete in basketball, volleyball and soccer tournaments, as well as music and choral festivals, and Model United Nations (MUN) conventions.

LOVES TO LAUGH

As a Third-Culture Kid, l had the benefit of experiencing both a Singapore and New Zealand education experience. Those were vital in shaping my perspective of education around the world. In my seven years of education in New Zealand, I was awarded the House Distinction Award from Macleans College in Auckland.

l graduated from The University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in History and Political Science. After which, I returned to Singapore to serve in the military service for two years. I then joined the Ministry of Education, and graduated from the National Institute of Education, Singapore with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education and thereafter a Masters in Management and International Business.

I first started the teaching career in Singapore as a trained English, History, and Social Studies teacher at a Secondary School. During this time, I was appointed as a subject head of national education. A few years later, I joined the Singapore Education Ministry Headquarters serving in the Curriculum Planning Division. Over the course of my career in Singapore, I have received numerous awards. Some of these awards include “Best Research Paper in the International Redesigning Pedagogy Conference” (2013), school-based awards as well as a national award.

In 2015, my family and I moved to Wuhan and served as High School Social Studies teacher at Wuhan Yangtze International School, before becoming the Secondary Principal in 2016.
