G3-4 Homeroom teacher/ Online Writing Instructor
I am Claudia, and am a classroom teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator, mother of two, and stepmom of three boys. I was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Canada, and I have been teaching for almost 20 years. I hold a Masters in English as a Second Language, and my first degree was also in the English Language. I am currently an English support teacher for Grade 4 and Grade 1 in an international school in Singapore.
I am passionate about literacy, language development, and second language acquisition. My role in the past 10 years revolves around English homeroom teaching, working alongside Chinese teachers in bilingual programs in Hong Kong and Singapore. I have also been a technology coordinator who trains staff and guides students to use technology to enhance learning.
I speak Cantonese, Mandarin, English and Japanese, and I share my love of language learning with my children who also have a thirst for learning different languages and cultures. As this blog suggests, technology and art play a huge role in supporting literacy in the classroom and at home.
