YEW CHUNG INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL QINGDAO
Qingdao, ShanDong Province, China 2015 – 2017
YCIS Qingdao gave me a unique opportunity - as I was continuing in my second year of my Masters of Education in Leadership through USF/EARCOS, YCIS Qingdao presented me with opportunities for research and development that greatly enhanced my leadership and organizational skills. I had an amazing opportunity to teach creative students of all ages, developing an understanding of the progression and alignment of diverse expectation of creative subjects from K-12.
Professionally, I had a dual role as as well as Head of the Arts and Humanities within Secondary and Visual Arts Teacher and Subject Coordinator responsible for the planning and implementation of Visual Arts curriculum throughout the school.
Other Involvements included:
One big highlight of teaching in International schools, is that all students have passports and are comfortable and confident travelers. YCIS Qingdao is located in Huangdao, which is a small developing satellite suburb of Qingdao proper - which means, for an Visual Art class, galleries to visit are few and far between. Lucky for us, YCIS has schools in many attractive cities around China, and so during my stay, I was able to organize and accompany my senior students (Year 10/11) on artistic learning journeys to Shanghai and Hong Kong and a special trip to Taian with my Grade 10 Form.
