Temisha Willis is originally from Mississippi, though she spent the last 21 years teaching in Ohio. Teaching is her passion. Her mother is a teacher and from a young age she knew she wanted to follow in her footsteps. Temisha loves to see a child’s eyes, or smile light up when they have grasped a difficult concept, or conquered a fear, or simply learned a new strategy. She feels fortunate to bring her skills as a primary literacy coach to SSIS and to work with a Grade 5 English class in the new academic year. She is ecstatic that she has been selected to work at such a prestigious institution where she will interact with other passionate and energetic educators.
Temisha loves shopping, traveling, reading and trying new foods. She anticipates learning here at SSIS, just as much as she is prepared to teach.
Founded in 1996, the Shanghai Singapore International School aims to develop each student into a responsible global citizen, with a strong sense of character preparing them for success in any life or career path they may choose.
