One of the things we’ve been looking at as a class are the various children’s literary awards. I’ll not dwell on the usual Caldecott / Newbery / Kate Greenaway type award, but would like to highlight a few of the awards the class suggested that particularly relate to socio-emotional or multi-cultural issues, as that is the direction that my interest is falling.

I’m currently living in Singapore, which the latest in a long line of places I’ve been living in the last few years including Hong Kong, Spain, Switzerland, Brazil, Netherlands, Italy, Luxembourg, and South Africa. I’m married with two children, aged 14 and 13. Having lived around the world I’ve acquired quite a few languages and my big passion is bi/multi-lingualism and - culturalism, which I try to incorporate into my work, learning and essays wherever possible! I finished my MIS degree in December 2014 and my M Ed (Knowledge Networks and Digital Innovation) in October 2016. My murky past is in commerce and industry as a Chartered Accountant, doing a lot of random studying and learning and I’m currently working in an International School following the PYP method in the primary division serving students K-6. Previously I worked in a secondary library of another international school, on a part-time basis, as a reference librarian.
