With a Diploma in Business Studies offered by the University of London, a Cambridge International Diploma for Teachers and Trainers as well as a Certificate of Educational Studies in Public Speaking; Ms Amar Jit attributes her interest in teaching to her daughter’s preschool experience. She joined as a preschool teacher at Smart Readers Worldwide in Malaysia, and continued to develop her understanding of best teaching practices as she pursued a Certificate in Teacher’s Training. She was awarded a Dedicated Teacher’s Recognition Certificate in 2004. Opting for a career change, she worked with children 7 to 12 years of age from diverse backgrounds in schools in Singapore and Malaysia whilst concurrently training working adults to improve their English.
To continue her passion to teach children Ms Amar Jit joined White Lodge, Upper Bukit Timah as a lead teacher more than a year ago. She strongly believes that every child deserves an opportunity to grow and learn at his/her own pace. In her role as the Principal of Upper Bukit Timah, Ms Amar Jit will continue to develop her team of teachers to have a shared vision around standards and success for all children in their care. “I will continue to ensure that we encourage a healthy school environment for children and the supportive team of teachers. An environment that is characterised by basics of safety and orderliness, reflecting a ‘supportive and responsive’ attitude towards the children and nurturing the team as a community of professionals focused on good instruction.”
