Mavis was born and educated in Singapore. She is proud to have a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from NUS and a Postgraduate Diploma in Education Programmes from NIE/NTU. She is currently completing her Master of Science in Education from the University of Glasgow, where she is learning inquiry-based pedagogy in Science and its impact on Science achievement.
Mavis was inspired to become an educator by her teachers, who never gave up on their students. She believes that when students develop a positive attitude, they are able to be more reflective and resilient in their learning. Seeing this transformation is what gives Mavis strength and motivation to keep going.
At OWIS, Mavis looks forward to learning new things. She says that it's challenging to do things that are outside her comfort zone, but this also keeps her humble and helps her become a better person.
As an honest, helpful and grateful teacher, Mavis believes that students can be taught to appreciate the little things in life and be thankful for what they have.
In her free time, Mavis enjoys playing the violin.
