About

Hi and thanks for stopping by.

I am Stephanie and I teach Year 5 at an international school in Singapore. I started this blog in 2011 as a way to document my experiences of completing the graduate diploma in teaching and decided to keep writing as a way to connect with other teachers in New Zealand and around the world.

What else about me?

I own almost one hundred cookie cutters (which I hardly ever use).
I write all my text messages in full sentence form.
I have a really unhealthy twitter obsession and am always online.
I am the short person in my family.
I lived in South Korea for four years teaching English.
I eat peanut butter straight out of the jar.
I dance like a six year old.
I want to make every recipe from my Sky High cookbook.
I love K-pop, pho, karaoke, ice-cream, Glee and movies that excel at being really awful.
I often wear mismatched socks.

The opinions, rants and musings expressed on this blogs are a reflection of my own thoughts and do not represent those of my employers.

  1. Hi Stephanie, I am currently canvassing teachers for their opinions regarding student engagement and the use of ICT in the classroom. If you have a spare 5 mins could you please answer the 2 questions on the following document?

  3. This blog is GREAT! Love your brutal honesty and writing in general! Thanks!

  4. Hi Stephanie,

    As a current Masters of Teaching student in Melbourne I am loving your blog and am using it to gain any tips and stories I can!
    I am moving to Wellington, NZ in October and was wondering if you could tell me anything about teaching aide jobs in the area? Would you happen to know if they are particularly needed or not? Just trying to suss out some more info before I hop on a plane to the unknown!

    Best,
    Joy

  5. Hi Stephanie!
    I’m honestly not sure how I came across your blog, but I’m sure glad I did!! I’ve been looking for other New Zealand teacher bloggers for a while! I’m looking forward to reading through your posts, but I have to say, I like what I’ve read so far!
    I’m over at http://www.learningtobeawesome.blogspot.com
