The teaching environment at Junyi is unique in many respects. I find myself surrounded not only by the natural beauty of Taitung – with the mountains and the ocean so close - but also by enthusiastic colleagues that share a common purpose - the success of this school and its students. Both are a great source of inspiration for me.
Students need to feel part of the learning process. As far as possible I try to create lessons where students feel the material is relevant and where the lesson is centered around their needs and interests. In a good class, a student should feel engaged and challenged – and laugh at least twice.
Both as a student and a teacher I have been very involved in sport and drama. I hope that I can bring some of my experience in these areas to the students at Junyi.
