Hello, my Name is Bong Shiaw Kong, I was born in Kuching a long time ago. I have been in the education industry since 1993. The experiences of teaching in National Secondary Schools, in University and later on in an International school setting has taught me a lot about how students learn and in what type of environment they will learn best. It has always been a very refreshing experience to meet new students from various parts of the world. One of the best parts of being a teacher is that you will feel that you are always as young as your students when you manage to communicate effectively with them.
I like sports, especially racquet games like Badminton, Squash, Tennis and Ping Pong. Other sports like Football, Basketball, Volleyball and Futsal are equally interesting to me; whenever I am free I like to do some sporting activity. Besides sports, I also like to read, listen to music, cook, take photographs and to go fishing. Unfortunately, some of these activities are either very time-consuming or very expensive or both, so I am only able to do them once in a while. I was once asked by a student what is my motto in life and my immediate response was to share a quote by William Ward. "Before you speak, listen. Before you write, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you invest, investigate. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give."
