Mdm Wong Teck Jee
Inspiring Chinese Language Teachers Awards 2015
Mdm Wong has been with the College since 1996. To cultivate her students' interest in the language, Mdm Wong constantly explores innovative teaching approaches to stir up excitement in her lessons. She introduces the Daily News Talk into her class which requires students to express their views about issues and to back up their views with accurate information. From this exciting activity, students not only develop their oral language skills, but also strengthen their analytical skills, and evaluation skills. More importantly, students feel that Chinese Language is not just another subject, but a dynamic, relevant and interesting one.
| Mr Muhamad Salahuddin B Ibrahim|
President's Award for Teachers 2015
Mr Salahuddin is a Lead Teacher who has been with the College since 1998. Mr Salahuddin has helped to build strong collaborative relationships – both among his students and the teaching staff. In this way, he has won the hearts and minds of colleagues and students under his mentorship.
He also initiated a peer support structure to enable students with behavioural issues to positively influence one another, going beyond the usual one-to-one interactions that teachers normally initiate with their charges. Mr Salahuddin believes that students will learn better when values such as perseverance are openly acknowledged and affirmed by teachers and peers.
At the national level, Mr Salahuddin is a core team member in the Biology Subject Chapter where he researches, designs and delivers workshops in areas such as “Question-based Instruction” and “Addressing Misconceptions in Science”. He sits on various committees such as the Biology Syllabus Development Committee and Biology Instructional Programme Support Group Planning Committee. The impact of his professional development contributions earned him the Fellow of the Academy of Singapore Teachers in 2014, in recognition of his active role in advocating a teacher-led culture of professional collaboration and excellence within the Biology fraternity. He is also acknowledged as one of the most caring teachers in the College, having won the Caring Teacher Commendation Award from NIE-Exxon Mobil in 2008 and SRJC’s annual Caring Teacher Award in 2011 and 2012.

Ms Melissa Chew Ai LingInspiring Teacher of English Award 2014
Ms Melissa Chew has been teaching English Literature in Serangoon Junior College since June 2006. Fully aware that Literature is a subject that needs to have meaningful connections between the text and reality, the past and present, Ms Chew has conducted a number of outdoor experiential learning lessons at Chinatown and Little India. Her students recalled one particular memorable occasion when she dressed in a traditional Peranakan costume and shared with them key aspects of Peranakan culture when they were studying an extract from Emily of Emerald Hill. This certainly brought the text and its contents alive and spurred them to find out more about other cultures in Singapore.
