Didn’t see your teacher featured in the video? Asked a question and wondered if your teacher responded?

Fret not, read on to find out!

Ms Tee Lay Hoon, H2 Economics

Ms Tee, neon looks good on you! 😉

Favourite memory of her: How Ms Tee always takes out her spare time for consults. Her dedication towards teaching is as strong as her daily tea intake.

Q: Why is your favourite tea oolong cha?

A: drinking oolong tea ☕, the teecher calms; the storm in her teecup dissipates

Mr David Toh Hui Han, H2 Geography

You're as scenic as the flowers in the field, Mr Toh!

Favourite memory of him: Him bringing a geography map for our class (19J18) photoshoot.

Q: How do you manage to get that fabulous hair of yours? Give us some tips:)

A: Pro tips for fabulous hair (for an RV student):

Firstly, healthy hair is fabulous hair: wash and condition faithfully with products that are gentle and free of harsh chemicals like parabens and sulphates. Secondly, a good haircut will never go out of style: show your trusted hairdresser the student handbook! Thirdly and finally, fabulous hair is hair that doesn't interfere with the things you love: if that darn fringe gets in the way of your sports, your studies or your relationship with your year master, then it's time to change your style :)

Mr Benny Louis Widjaja, H2 Chemistry

Favourite memory of him: Him suan-ing students during chem lessons!

Q: How do you achieve your level of suan?

A: Practice. Since students engage in foolish activities every so often, I find myself having many opportunities to practice my skills over the years.

Besides, why scold them when you can suan them instead? Students appreciate a good suan more than a good scolding.

Mr George Lim, H2 Math

Favourite memory of him: Even though I didn't understand the lecture completely, he patiently guided me step by step through the concepts :)

Q: When did you start playing the guitar? What inspired you to become a teacher?

A: I started playing guitar when I was in Sec 3. Took up a basic 12-week course and after that kept on learning more chords to accompany singing. I used to play the guitar and sing songs for all my graduating classes. But bringing guitar can be quite troublesome so nowadays I sometimes use accompaniment music instead. 😆

I enjoy teaching concepts and skills in a way easier to grasp and pick up by the learners. I find joy and fulfilment when students improve in the subject I teach.

Mr Shane Koh, H2 History
