TEACHING OPERATIONS MANAGER

Responsible for Policy, Recruitment and Contract Renewal, Training, Evaluation and professional development of teaching staff.
I’ve been with Longman Schools for 5 years, having spent 3 years teaching before moving into a training role in Head Office. I’m responsible for ongoing training of Senior Teachers and Longman Schools experienced Foreign Teachers. I’m also the company qualified trainer for Pearson’s Professional Teacher Development Program.
I’ve been involved in the design and development of two summer course programs and the research, selection and implementation of our current children’s level program Big English.
I look forward to welcoming you to Longman Schools.
Education: BA with Distinction, from the University of Victoria with a Major in Anthropology and a Minor in Psychology. I studied anthropology to learn about the the people that make up our world and in Psychology I specifically focused on childhood development and aging with a strong emphasis on first and second language acquisition.
I have been employed at Longman Schools since August 2009. I have over 16 years teaching and training experience in Germany, Canada, and China.
At Shanghai Longman Schools I have researched, developed, designed, and produced courseware for 12 course books. Created a standardized our demonstration classes and courseware. Have developed and designed various special topic courses and holiday curriculum. Researched, designed, produced a standardized family class system for all classes. Created and lead our New Teacher Training program over the past 4 years. I am also Longman Schools online admin and designed and coded this site, Longmancareers.com.
I am very interested in language education and the minds of young children. Working with kids and training others to work with kids has been an extremely rewarding experience. There is nothing quite like the experience gained from teaching young minds and I feel my life has been enriched through the experience beyond that of any other type of employment I have been involved in. Just as the best teachers never stop learning, I am continually upgrading my skills and knowledge to deliver the most rewarding training experience possible to all foreign and Chinese teachers that join our team. I look forward to meeting everyone who successfully applies for a position with our company. Good luck!
