一个不小心,我成了新加坡政府公务员了

2018年3月12日

虽然已经过去了五天,但是7号面试的场景还历历在目。失眠了一天以后,今天还想到很多的问题我回答的不够好。

I would like to share this with more people who need help for the interview at MOE.

Part 1 Scenario questions

A teacher, Ivan, is a very responsible and caring teacher who has received a lot of commendations and praise from students and parents. He also teaches outside the school even at home to help the students. Once the head of the department has informed him to stop seeing students outside of school. You notice that he is still seeing students outside the school. What will you do? Why?

Part 2. Demo teaching

They behaved as naughty students and stopped me after around 5 minutes. During my demo, they asked questions for example, “Teacher, the animal is small” or “teacher, you have not taught yet and how can you ask us to answer” as they are very experienced teachers.

Questions like “孩子学了犀牛、海狮,如何确保新加坡孩子永久地记住这些词汇,而不是过几天就忘了”。我回答了可以组织field trips, formative assessment, 第二天复习再隔一个礼拜再复习,甚至做个自己的小字典,但是我总觉得说的不够好。1.Why do you choose P1 as your demo teaching?

“ P1 is foundational and everything should start from basic and my daughter is also K1”

2.“Which levels are you going to teach?”

白天自信满满,晚上做梦教育部面试李冰都面上了,我没有过,我还要写信appeal。

6月4日到7日

这段日子最难熬,因为四个人的offer都下来了,收到邮件,我都急破头了,礼拜三实在忍不住,给MOF负责给政府职员发薪水的人联系一下,结果拜四就拿到了。急得我连结婚纪念日都忘了。薪水还给我涨了几百块,真乐! 比我拿到offer前一天预算的还多了$140。

6月25日

最近走在EASB的门外,我就在想为什么我在这里混了十年?十年反复教每三个月一样的东西,而且自己的业务也没有什么提高,也没有追求进步。十年,我谈了恋爱结了婚生了两个娃,现在娃大点了,可以把更多的时间放到事业上了。

我的同事听到我去了教育部都感觉脸色都变了,他们新加坡人都懂教育部工资高、福利好、更受人尊重,我同事讲是“a prestigeous job and I get better pay and respect.” 貌似中国人不太懂。我真的是签合同那天发现我成了政府公务员了。真有趣!我爸一直希望我考中国公务员,结果我一不小心成了新加坡的公务员了。
