Topic: B.E5 Excuse me, are you crazy enough to be everything, everywhere all at once?


Synopsis: What exactly is a teacher's job? What are teachers paid to do? How do teachers know if they have "met the mark" whether or not they have met the official KPIs of the job? Mr Lim Ee Tuo who spent all of his career as an educator in different capacities posits that the most important work a teacher does is to safeguard our children so that they grow to be healthy and well-adjusted adults. Of all the jobs in the world, the teaching job is the one that creates all other jobs - the father of all jobs.

Safeguarding our children is more than just caring about their safety or emotional health, but also making sure that they are learning the right things - both in a academic and learning aspects and also in life. Join this Human Library Experience to wrestle with the tension that every teacher experiences - having regulations, systems and processes that are supposed to raise the quality of preschool education and yet makes our lives harder. Join Ee Tuo in answering the question: why are you a teacher?
