I'm a Special Assistant at the School Operations Policy Branch within the Schools Division, Ministry of Education! Previously, I taught at Hwa Chong Institution (College) for four years, following my graduation from the Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) at the National Institute of Education (NIE), an autonomous institute within Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore.

While I studied the English language & linguistics and biology at university (hop over to profile if you're curious what I did!), and trained to teach both, I've since had the chance to teach a range of subjects, including the General Paper and English Language and Linguistics.

I've had the chance to work with students in various out-of-the-classroom contexts: outdoor education (including overseas expeditions in rock climbing, kayaking, and cycling), fencing, and badminton. Student development is thus dear to my heart and something I really enjoy!

what's this for?

Portfolios are ostensibly created for the viewer as an audience. But beyond the viewer, portfolios also serve the creator as an audience: the creation process is innately reflective and contemplative. This site lays out my beliefs and motivations as an educator, and tracks my professional development and growth, both for the visitor and for myself. It also provides a more complete picture of me: both as a person, and as an educator.

Have a look at my professional Instagram account (@mister.lan) or drop me an email: I'm always happy to have a good chat over coffee! I'm especially interested in linguistics, biology, education, and thrilled when these fields intersect!
