It was perhaps more luck than fate that in the Summer of2017, I chanced upon UCIS,a boarding school in Shanghai.
I chose here because I want a new adventure and stayed because the amazing teaching environment that UCIS offers. The staff and students are very friendly and teaching here has been the perfect start to my hopefully long teaching career.
I come from England. It has been over thirty years since I left my homeland.My school is in st.John's college.In truth, it was just your typical public school nestled in Surrey, the school is a relative 180 years old.
The five years I spent boarding there were full of structure, and often harsh discipline, but looking back, they were some of the best years of my life.I got my taste for what would ultimately become my lifelong passion, Economics.
As one of the Economic Education teachers, our goal is to introduce a variety of Economic to students from grades nine to twelve.I thought back to my A’level economics classes at St. John’s, The teachers would make us seize every opportunity to discuss the topic of the day with them.
And encouraged us to be enthusiastic and thoughtful, so to this day I am eternally grateful for their role in the teaching process. In my class,I encourage our students to understand and enjoy the interesting course of economics.
I feel that this country offers an ample of instances from which I can learn and grow. In addition to people and learning opportunities,I will miss authentic Chinese food, traditional Chinese medicine, and magnificent nature.I am also very keen on sports, such as cricket, swimming and running.
I think it’s very important to understand the needs of our students.one of the most valuable skills a teacher can have is connecting with students and understanding how each individual has their own learning style. Having a passion for teaching and always carrying one’s self with a positive attitude is critical.
