Teaching in Cambodia
We received wonderful feedback from Jennifer about her job teaching in Cambodia, after her course at Samui TEFL
I was offered a better position in Phnom Penh, Cambodia at an international preschool. I’ve been working for a few months now and I really like it.
My students are 2 to 3 years old and all Khmer. We follow a monthly lesson plan that wraps 4-5 weeks into a theme. We do crafts, sensory activities & are learning the alphabet and numbers 1-20.
Sometimes we can go to the playground if the weather is not too hot. The students love it when we go to the swimming pool.
Each week I write reports on their progress. We follow five developmental domains that categorise the students' progress over the semester. Our focus is on establishing a routine that they can follow into kindergarten. I recently completed report cards and we have parent teacher meetings in a couple of weeks.
The weeks are challenging, but I’m learning a lot. I work with a great team of teachers, teaching assistants and program managers.
I want to thank you again for Samui TEFL. You offered excellent content to use in my classes. In addition to on the job training, I am also using additional sources to update my Bachelors of Arts degree in Psychology and become more current with early childhood education training techniques.
I’ve included a picture from Halloween. The teachers were flowers, I was a Gladiolus 🌸 This is our unicorn craft from a few weeks ago.
