Ep 31: Teacher, Teacher
Aug 31, 2021
Welcome to the We Are Dads Too podcast.
Teachers play a very significant role in all our lives. For at least a decade of our existence, teachers have been helping us learn and grow as a whole person. One day in a year is set aside to show our appreciation to our teachers, and rightly so because apart from providing instruction in the classroom they also accompany students on field trips, conduct extra or remedial classes, help with the organization of school functions, and serve as supervisors for co-curricular activities. How one person is able to bear so many responsibilities at the same time confounds and evokes great respect from us all.
Because Teacher's Day being just around the corner, this episode will be dedicated to all the teachers who have played such a significant role in our children's lives. And to help us understand the work that teachers do, we have as our guest Andrew Kang.
Andrew Kang is a former MOE Vice-Principal and NIE External Consultant. Education seems to be in Andrew's blood because even after leaving the teaching job, he went on to start a company to reimagine learning. Andrew is also a dad. The ages of his children are 18, 16, 14, 11.
