I have been very fortunate to travel abroad for professional development including to Australia for the EduTech conference in 2016, Singapore for the National Geographic Learning Conference in 2016, Malaysia for the BETT conference in 2017 and the USA for Project-Based Learning 101 in 2017. Project Based Learning and use of effective technology is a passion of mine and I have applied many of the new things I have learnt at conferences into my own teaching. I was also recognised as a finalist in the Jeollobuk-do annual teaching competition in 2012 and won the teacher excellence award at ILA Vietnam in 2014.
