TIC Teachers' Case Studies Receive International Attention
Two of TIC's teachers have been featured in international education articles in the past week. Gerry Young was featured on the International School Community Website where he talked about some of the incredible experiences he had teaching and living in Mauritius and Bangkok. "We never realised the possibilities that were out there to develop our careers as well as to travel and see different countries and cultures – to live them rather than just pass through them,” says Gerry in the feature. "In a word, adventure!" he adds. To read all about Gerry's experiences, visit the International School Community website, which features stories from a number of TIC teachers as well as a wide range of informative articles about teaching internationally.
Jane Smith has made the move from China to the glorious climate of Malaysia, where she is the Deputy Head at the brand new Epsom College. Jane has been featured on the International Education Malaysia website, where she details the exciting opportunities that are on offer when leading at a new school. "Having the chance to work on a new school from the ground up; on designs for the ‘perfect prep’ is a once in a lifetime chance," she says in the article. "The school will be a truly international school and will be a rich and inspiring learning environment for our pupils which will make it a stimulating and rewarding place to work.” To find out more about Jane’s experiences and also the increasing opportunities for teaching in Malaysia, visit the International Education Malaysia website.
