Career Talk | Empathy, Equity, and Excellence Empowers Everyone: Teaching and Learning Today for the World of Tomorrow



Guest Speaker Mr. Nick Chignall, Elementary Vice-Principal of TIS Macao, will give a Career Talk on February 21, as part of the USJ Career Fair 2023 programme.


Today’s students have faced challenges of uncertainty and the unknown over the past three years. Through all of this, however, they also represent the strength, resiliency, and determination needed to be the future of Macao and beyond. How can we as educators support the children of today for tomorrow’s world and ensure the success of future generations of young learners? It is through empathy, equity, and the pursuit of excellence for each child that we can make a difference in their lives and prepare them for their lifelong journey.
