Deputy Centre Head, MOE Kindergarten @ Oasis
“A teacher who provides a welcoming and enriching environment will nurture children to be happy, confident, responsible and positive towards learning.”
Shirleen believes that teachers play an important role in a child’s holistic development. Children will strive to learn when teachers are encouraging and passionate in their teaching. She also emphasizes the need for teachers to cultivate a good relationship with parents and children, so that they can better understand the children and guide them to reach their full potential.
Shirleen takes time to communicate with the teachers regularly. She encourages teachers to reflect, share good practices with one another and develop a positive attitude towards lifelong learning. She hopes that this will allow teachers to constantly improve their knowledge and skills, leading to a community of quality pre-school educators in Singapore.
