About Me #

I am writing to express my enthusiasm for the teaching position at your esteemed institution. With a diverse background spanning business ownership, journalism, and education, I bring a unique blend of skills and experiences that I am eager to leverage to create dynamic learning environments for students. My journey in education began as an English Teacher at Yifan International, where I implemented innovative teaching methods that combined American and Chinese curricula. By incorporating Montessori principles and sensory exercises, I created energetic and engaging lessons that fostered language acquisition and exploration. As an English Teacher at Mentougou Primary and Beijing College of Politics & Law, I further honed my teaching abilities, focusing on building students’ confidence through drama and interactive activities. I also had the privilege of teaching business English, equipping students with practical skills for success in the professional world. My previous roles as a photojournalist, journalist, and stylist have provided me with invaluable communication and research skills, which I believe are essential for creating dynamic and engaging educational experiences. With a Bachelor of Education degree from North West University and certification as a foreign language teacher from TEFL Foundation, I am committed to ongoing professional development and ensuring that my teaching practices are informed by the latest research and best practices in education. In summary, I am excited about the opportunity to bring my passion for education, creativity, and diverse skill set to your institution. I am confident that my background and dedication to student success make me a strong candidate for this position.
