 英語教育主任 Deputy Head Teacher 

Mud Pies: 談談你的教學經驗以及什麼是你在教學中最享受的?

Susan: 從2003年開始,我在加拿大和香港開始教學,每當我看到學生學到一樣新事物時眼裡發出著光芒,這令我感到非常滿足。

Mud Pies: 對你而言,家在哪裡?

Susan: 對我來說,家是心的歸處。加拿大是我的家,因為那裡載滿著我的童年和我所愛的人,而香港亦是我家,因這裡遇到的所有人,令我有家的感覺,亦建立著我的未來。

Mud Pies: 你覺得MUD PIES最好的地方是什麼?

Susan: MUD PIES最好的地方就是這裡的人,大家都很努力在建立一個良好的團隊,我的同事及學生都是滿有親切的。

Mud Pies: 小朋友們都怎樣形容你?

Susan: 我的學生可能會描述我是一個大孩子,因為像孩子一般的想像遊玩真的很有趣,我很鼓勵孩子自由發揮想像力,因我認為這樣可以幫助他們了解自己喜歡什麼,並自行創造出來。

Mud Pies: 你最喜愛的兒童讀物是什麼?

Susan: 我最喜歡的兒童讀物是《鵝媽媽的童謠》,因為故事既簡短,亦表達了我們是可以有時’傻氣’,有時’認真’的。

Mud Pies: 什麼地點/事情會令你愉快?

Susan: 我覺得最幸福的是在公園,或依偎在舒適的椅子上閱讀一本好書。當然最好加上一杯茶和餅乾。

 

Mud Pies: What is your experience of teaching and what do you enjoy most about it?

Susan:   I have had experience in teaching since 2003 in Canada and Hong Kong. It is most satisfying when I see that spark in the eyes once the student 'get's it', like a light just switched on.

Mud Pies: Where is 'home' for you?

Susan: For me, "home is where the heart is", defines it for me. When I think home, Canada is home because its in the heart of my childhood and all the people I love there, but Hong Kong is home because its something for the future and again its the people that I have met that make it feel like home. 

Mud Pies: What is the best thing about Mud Pies?

Susan: The best thing is the people at Mud Pies that really define this place, everyone here cooperates and makes an effort to create a good team and I have always been involved from day one and made to feel part of the team.  

Mud Pies: How would your students best describe you?

Susan: My students would probably describe me as a big child, because playing like a child uses imagination that's really fun and I try to use it as much as I can.  I really encourage kids to be free with their imagination. I think it really helps them to explore what they like and to get creative.

Mud Pies: What is your favourite children's book?

Susan: My favourite children's book is Mother Goose's nursery rhymes because they are short and tells a story that can be silly or serious.

Mud Pies: What activity, place or thing makes you happiest?

Susan: I am most happy snuggled into a comfortable chair or in the park with a good book.  I can do that for hours, best with a cup of tea and a biscuit.
