Using everything from old-fashioned writing principles to gadgets such as smartphones, six teachers went the extra mile to make lessons resonate with their students.
And for their efforts they won this year's Inspiring Teacher of English Award, which honours outstanding teachers of English Language, English Literature and General Paper annually.
The recipients, chosen from a pool of 105 nominees, are (from left) Mr Tan Wah Jiam from Hwa Chong Institution (College Section); Mrs Anne Kingsley-Lee from CHIJ St Theresa's Convent; Mrs Sangeetha Sivanesan from Da Qiao Primary School; Ms Laureen Toh from Catholic Junior College; Ms Vanessa Heng from Nanyang Girls' High School; and Mr Patrick Sum from Anglo-Chinese Junior College.
