Lim Wei An Diploma in Early Childhood EducationStudent Teacher at the Little Tree HouseLim Wei An was one of the award recipients at the recent Early Childhood Development Agency's (ECDA) Scholarships & Awards Ceremony.
Wei An was inspired by his sister, who is in teaching as well, to pursue a Diploma in Early Childhood Education in Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Wei An believes
that being one of the few male pre-school teachers in a predominantly female industry does have its benefits. "Female teachers have to raise their voices to get their students' attention. It's different for me. Students lower their voices when I walk in!"Wei An is currently on attachment as a student teacher at the Little Tree House, where he observes and assists his mentor in the classroom.
