Initially working as an EFL teacher in Brighton, UK, I joined Shane English Schools Taiwan as a teacher in January 2014, teaching all ages from young children to adults. Since then I’ve worked as both an Assistant Director of Studies (ADoS) and Director of Studies (DoS) in Head Office before taking on my new role as Group Operations and Academic Manager earlier this month.
My previous responsibilities included teacher training and development, the management of DTE (Direct Teaching Establishment) teachers, advising and supporting franchise managers with teacher management, maintaining teaching quality, and the provision of courses and materials to schools.
As Group Operations & Academic Manager, my primary role is to oversee and assist Shane Operations around the globe, with an emphasis on academic and teacher support. I’m currently in the process of using my experience teaching with young students to revamp our international kindergarten program.
In my spare time, I can be found reading anything from history books to thrillers, scribbling stories of my own, or lifting heavy things and putting them down again. I also play in between the sticks for The Mighty Shane FC.
I thoroughly look forward to getting my teeth into my new position and possibly meeting some of you soon
