(上面的圖片是我的油畫肖像。這幅畫是在委拉斯開茲的巴洛克風味。我感謝 The Naked Listener’s Weblog 這份禮物。)

I am a teacher in Hong Kong. I coach young schoolchildren for entry into the local and overseas private school systems.

Interestingly, teaching has only been a very recent (and accidental) calling of mine. My deep roots in fact are in luxury cars and publishing. Read my About page for random facts about myself or the one-on-one media interview of me.

Shirley works as a teacher in preparing kindergarten and pre-primary schoolchildren for admission into private and boarding schools worldwide. Prior to entering the teaching field, Shirley was for eleven years in saleswork at Ferrari and more than a decade in publishing sales at Longman Publishers. She is a native of Hong Kong, born on 19 November 1960 to a homemaker mother and a father who once worked as a merchant in Africa during the Second World War. She lives in Hong Kong with her husband, who is an award-winning travel writer, and son who has just started working.
