Ms Cara Chew Fourth to Attain Inspiring Teacher of English Award in CJC

Cara1.jpgLaunched in 2008, the Inspiring Teacher of English Award (ITEA) recognises exceptional teachers of English Language, English Literature and General Paper. The award is presented by the Speak Good English Movement, in collaboration with The Straits Times, and supported by the Ministry of Education.

CJC is proud to have four teachers from the English Department who have clinched the award since its inception. Mrs Sng Mee Lian, Ms Laureen Toh and Mr Marc Kenji Lim were presented with the ITEA in 2010, 2013, and 2015 respectively.

Ms Cara Chew, Level Head (General Paper) of CJC’s English Department, was the latest addition to CJC’s tradition of nurturing teachers who are nationally recognised for their pedagogical excellence. Ms Cara Chew customises her pedagogy to teach students of different abilities, in particular to suit the varying needs of students from the Arts and Science faculties.

Our 4 ITEA winners are part of a growing list of CJC teachers who are recognised nationally. These teachers are Dr. Wang Zhiwei (Inspiring Teacher of Chinese Award 2011), Ms Michelle Teo (Finalist, Outstanding Youth in Education Award 2011), Ms Nur Adhana (Most Outstanding History Teacher Award 2013), Ms Melanie Lum (Finalist, President’s Award for Teachers 2015) and Mr Peter Thia (Finalist, President’s Award for Teachers 2016)

The teachers at CJC continue to inspire not just their students, but also each other, cementing a continued commitment towards Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
