Avis Parker, Deputy Headteacher, Academic, Epsom College in Malaysia

Avis Parker is an experienced educator who has been teaching in international schools in Malaysia for more than 10 years. Throughout her career, she has held leadership positions in both pastoral care and academic studies. Currently serving as the Deputy Headteacher, academic, at Epsom College, she takes charge of various aspects of the school's operations, including Teaching and Learning, Assessment and Reporting.   At Epsom College, technology plays a central role in supporting the school's educational practices. Avis strongly believes in the power of data to gain insights into students' abilities, strengths, and weaknesses, which in turn informs teaching strategies. The school utilizes benchmark tests and English proficiency assessments during the admission process to shape classroom instruction that best supports students' progress.   For students identified as having Additional Educational Needs (AEN), individualized Student Support Plans (ISPs) are developed, providing them with additional support during school hours. These plans aim to facilitate access to lesson content and skills, ensuring that every student can participate effectively in the learning process. Additionally, students with low English proficiency receive intensive English lessons to enhance their language skills and integration into the curriculum.   To gather feedback and promote student engagement, Google Forms are employed to survey students on Teaching and Learning experiences in each subject. This approach not only gives students a voice in their education but also provides the school with valuable insights into teacher performance and areas for improvement.   Recognizing the importance of student well-being, Epsom College conducts termly wellness checks to monitor and support students' mental and emotional health. These regular assessments ensure that students maintain a healthy overall well-being, creating a conducive learning environment.   Overall, Avis Parker's leadership at Epsom College emphasizes the use of technology, data-driven approaches, and student engagement to enhance teaching and learning experiences while prioritizing student well-being.
