    Location: Taiwan (Asia)

    I am a 50-year-old South African teacher with more than 28 years' teaching experience, of which 15 years are in Taiwan. I have extensive experience teaching English to very young kids as well as elementary school students. I am a registered teacher with the South African Council of Educators.

    I am passionate about teaching. I see teaching not as a job, but as a vocation, and thus I put in a lot of effort to not only teach English but also prepare students for their future, by teaching social norms and life skills. I love Taiwan - the people, the customs and culture, and the beautiful natural scenery. Therefore, it is my goal to find a long-term teaching post here, where I can contribute to the English learning processes of the students in a happy and interesting environment.

    The experience I have gained over the past 15 years teaching English in Taiwan include:

    > Formulating objectives and preparing outlines for all English lessons according to the curriculum.
    > Preparing and presenting lesson plans using different mediums of instruction, such as teacher instruction, videos, music, games, student demonstration, and group activities.
    > Adapting teaching materials to meet students of varying abilities' needs.
    > Creating worksheets for class use and preparing remedial programs.
    > Using phonemic awareness to aid students in improving listening, reading and spelling skills.
    > Planning and leading conversation classes.
    > Writing short plays and leading students in practicing and performing the plays.
    > Conducting classes for Chinese-speaking homeroom teachers, providing them with basic English to use in the classroom.
    > Mentoring and supervising junior teachers.
    In my opinion, my major achievement over the past 15 years is my development of excellent relationships with my students and co-teachers, in order to promote a love for the English language. Among my other achievements, I count the following as some of my most important ones.
    > Achieved excellent results using interdisciplinary teaching
    > Identified and utilized a variety of learning materials, resources, and technology methods to support and improve the instructional environment.
    > Improved the conversational English skills of students by compiling graded books with short, basic English conversations according to routine daily activities, as well as basic English vocabulary lists.
    > Ensured that all students have equal opportunity to achieve the goals set by the curriculum by creating worksheets and other materials to reinforce the studied concepts.
    > Prepared and implemented remedial programs for students in need of extra help.
    > Increased student participation in the classroom by creating exciting and interesting activities.
