First of all, thank you all readers who approached me at the TEDx talk and for taking the time to attend! I had a lot of fun that day and I also met so many other inspiring people! It was definitely very nerve-wrecking to be on stage speaking to hundreds of people and although I’d [...]

Hey guys! As you know, I was invited to speak at TEDxYouth and it’s such an honour to be able to speak to such a large crowd! I’m really excited to share my teacher life with everyone but also crazyyyy nervous. I mean..I speak in front of so many very unforgivingly, ruthlessly critical kids everyday [...]
These are some of the updates I posted on Facebook recently so thought I’d just put them here too. Last week, something horrifying and traumatizing happened, and it’s especially scarier now that i’m a teacher so i feel like a parent to all my kids. After choral speaking practice, the kids left and went back [...]
A few updates: 1. I’m making a more concerted effort to blog more again for several reasons. Firstly, it doesn’t actually take thaaat much time and I’m a lot more free these days (kids are having their exams next week!) so no excuse not to blog!

It’s an achievement for me because I’ve been a very very bad blogger and have stopped replying to comments since I started teaching. I remember the old Suet would reply to every comment thoughtfully because [...]
Dear diary, Today, I saw a diary entry from one of students that got me thinking about what I’ve been doing here. “Teacher, I want to read more English books so I can speak with you in English. I’m sure I can do it” I just need to say this. Everything that I’ve done for [...]
This is a video of two of my students reading Peter and Jane. They couldn’t read at all at the beginning of the year (one of them still can’t, actually). I thought I’ll record them reading so we can look back and see how much they’ve progressed over the months. The girl, Jaya, could not [...]
Another aspect of being a teacher that has become more essential these days is my ability to adapt and to be flexible when the time comes. Unfortunately for me, I was given practically overnight to suddenly acquire this skill of adapting to changes so adapt I will! Last week, we were told of a new [...]
