Jason Shin

Hello everybody, my name is Jason Shin and I am very proud to be the teacher of Room 28 who is excited about the year ahead.  I believe in leading students to become inquirers so that they can think critically and dive into their true passions in order to pursue what they desire.  I encourage the students to take risks and try new opportunities whenever they arise.  I enjoy teaching within the International Baccalaureate programme, and am a collaborative teacher who is passionate about working with intermediate students, especially those experiencing the transition to a new school.  I want to give good guidance to the students so that they can be successful in what they do and express their interests to others.

I was born in Korea but have lived in New Zealand since I was 3.  I have travelled the same pathway as the students by attending ANI and Auckland Boys’ Grammar as a student.  I completed a Bachelor of Arts with a major in English and a minor in Writing Studies.  Then I did a Graduate Diploma in Primary Teaching.  I have realised through my education here how important it is for children to know what they enjoy.  My enjoyments include writing, reading, singing, playing tennis and travelling.

I am looking forward to this year and cannot wait to meet you all.
