教师聚焦:

Lee Mckelvey

 

 

“教师聚焦” 是苏州德威国际高中对任职教师进行的定期访谈系列。本期很高兴向大家介绍我们的数学老师Lee Mckelvey老师,以下为本次的采访要点。

Q1

能否简单介绍一下你的家乡?

英国曼彻斯特

我出生在曼彻斯特,并在那里度过了30年,我的整个校园生活,包括大学也是在曼彻斯特。我认为曼彻斯特是一个非常棒的城市。

Q2

请告诉我们你的教育背景和教学经历

 

苏州德威国际高中教师采访-Lee Mckelvey

我拥有曼彻斯特大学的数学学位和流体力学硕士学位。我从事教育行业已经13年了,在获得PGCE证书之后,我搬到了中国,所以我所有的实际教学经验都是在中国。

Q3

你是什么时候想要成为一名老师的?

当我在学习A-level的时候,我会把之前的题目也都完成,我的老师对于我热切、热情的准备不太满意,所以他总是在检查我题目答案的同时让我在课堂上帮助其他学生。在这段时间里,我意识到我是多么喜欢帮助别人,让他们了解如何回答问题。这就是我希望成为一名老师的开端。

Q4

你最大的榜样是谁?

我最大的榜样是我以前的数学及进阶数学老师,虽然他有时有点严格,但他教会我在尝试解决问题之前要先仔细思考问题。他是我的课程导师,帮助我获得了PGCE证书。

Q5

你有什么兴趣爱好吗?

我喜欢在业余时间编程和玩代码,我特别喜欢为iOS制作游戏和应用程序,然后免费将它们放到应用程序商店!(我最新的游戏叫Neonmetry,在AppStore可免费下载)我喜欢编程的原因是我能发挥创造力,同时它也与数学相关,所以我会比较容易上手。

Q6

你从工作中得到最大的收获是什么?

教学中最有价值的部分是学生能够将单元之间的数学知识联系起来,这样他们能够真正地了解到这门学科的美妙。当然,就算不是顶尖的学生,你也可以感受到数学的美好和神奇!

Q7

什么食物让你觉得有罪恶的快感?

 

苏州德威国际高中教师采访-Lee Mckelvey

我特别喜欢巧克力、花生酱和果酱三明治!

Q8

告诉我们你在中国和苏州的生活经历?

我喜欢在中国生活,在这里已经生活13年了,我特别喜欢在苏州生活。苏州真的是中国美丽风景的一部分。我在西安住了7年,在那里我遇到了我的妻子,也在南京住了3年,然后搬到了苏州。我们有两个漂亮的女儿,她们现在就读于苏州德威英国国际学校

Teachers In the Spotlight: Lee Mckelvey

In the fourteenth of our regular series of interviews with staff at Dulwich International High School Suzhou, we are delighted to present the highlights of an interview with Lee Mckelvey(Mathematics Teacher) at our school.

01.  Where are you from and where did you grow up?

I was born in Manchester and spent the next 30 years there too, my whole school life, including university was also in Manchester. Great city in my opinion.

02. Tell us about your Educational background + teaching experience

I have a degree in Mathematics and a masters in fluid mechanics, both from Manchester university. I have been teaching for 13 years, and after my PGCE I moved straight to China, so all my actual teaching experience is in China.

03. When did you realize you wanted to become a teacher?

When I was doing my A-levels I used to complete all the past papers, my teacher wasn’t too happy with my eager, enthusiastic preparation, so he used to get me to help students in the class while he checked my papers. It was during this time that I realised how much I enjoyed working with others and helping them understand how to answer questions, this is when I wanted to become a teacher.

04. Who is your biggest role model?

My biggest role model is my former maths and further maths teacher, although a little strict sometimes, he taught me how to think carefully about problems before jumping in and trying to solve them. He also helped me through my PGCE as he was assigned as my mentor for the course.

05. What are your hobbies and what do you enjoy most about them?

I love programming and playing around with code in my spare time, I particularly enjoy making games and apps for iOS and then putting them on the app store for free! (my latest free game is called NEONMETRY, available on the Appstore now) The reason I like programming is that I get to be creative, but at the same time it has a very mathematical feel, so there is a structure to it.

Another hobby of mine is photography, although I am only an amateur, I really enjoy capturing action shots.

06. What is most rewarding about your job?

The most rewarding part of teaching is when students are able to link areas of mathematics between modules, and when they see the beauty of the subject. You do not have to be a top student to appreciate the beauty and wonder of the subject though!

07. What food is like a guilty pleasure to you?

The foods I really enjoy are chocolate and peanut butter and jam sandwiches!

08. Tell us about your experiences living in China and Suzhou

I love living in China, having been here for thirteen years, and I especially love living in Suzhou. Suzhou really is a beautiful and scenic part of China. I have also lived in Xi’an for 7 years where I met my wife, and also in Nanjing for 3 years before moving to Suzhou. We have two beautiful daughters who are now studying in Dulwich college Suzhou.

09. Any advice to students at Dulwich international High School Suzhou?

Work hard and success will follow.
