|By Mary Chin May 2006
TAWAU is in the media spotlight again, educationally speaking. This time around, it is the formation of the Tawau English Language Teachers' (TELT) Club, the first such club to be started in Sabah.
As its name implies, the key aim is to raise the status of learning and teaching English.
Outstanding English teachers and promoters of English Language learning will be duly recognized.
All English teachers in the Tawau Division (comprising the Tawau and Semporna districts)
automatically become members of the club.
According to the club's constitution, membership is compulsory for English Language teachers.
Office-bearers are appointed by the Tawau Division Education Officer and they serve a two-
Sabah Education Director Normah Gagoh is the Patron of the club. The Chairperson is Fitriani Wahid who is the Principal of SMK Pasir Putih, Tawau, assisted by the Headmaster of SK Bukit Quoin, Taw^au, Lunggo Leem. Its vision is to be a leading professional teachers' club that upholds the hallmarks of dignity, integrity and distinction.
The 1000 strong club is the 'fruit' of collaboration between the Tawau Education Division Office and Super Principal of SM Teknik Tawau, Mary Yap Kain Ching. Yap who acts as professional advisor for the club has a passion for teaching English. She has a Master's degree in the Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from the University of Leeds, United Kingdom.
She elaborated on the three main objectives -
To play a supportive role in enhancing the English Language Teaching Profession,
to inspire English Language teachers to scale greater heights and
to impact upon the students in English Language learning.
"Our mission is to contribute positively to a wider usage of the English Language at least in the Tawau Division and to create a platform for networking and collaboration among English teachers.
This initiative is in response to the call of the Minister of Education,
Dato' Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein to come up with new ideas for teachers to
enhance their level of competency and professionalism.
OUTLINING the TELT Club's agenda for 2006 until
2008, Yap said a variety of action-packed activities will be held under three
main categories : Continuing Professional Development (CPD), Continuing Personal
Development (CPD) and Social Events.
