I am from Singapore and essentially a teacher. I've taught for 22 years in a primary school situation and acquired vast experience in, not only teaching but also, heading the English department in a 2000-strong school. Currently I'm working with the Ministry of Education of Singapore dealing with curriculum planning, materials development and instructional planning. My current job also includes training teachers in pedagogy. I have a sabbatical due to me from mid August to end of October. I'm looking for work attachment opportunities in teaching either children or adults or teacher training, as a personal development effort. The work attachment need not occupy the entire ten weeks. I am available for shorter periods of time depending on the needs I can fulfill. The cost to you would be: airfare, transfers, accommodation, local transport and food.
