My name is Alcides Campbell and I am currently a Reading Specialist at a primary school in Hong Kong.
I was blessed with the opportunity to grow up in three different languages (Spanish, English and French) and travel extensively. My journey as an educator and counsellor brought me to Hong Kong.
My interest in teaching began at seventeen at the American Cultural Centre in Venezuela as an ESL instructor and then, for eight years at Berlitz International Language Centre in Venezuela, as well. I have taught Grades 3 – 6 in Ontario, Canada and Hong Kong. I also received a Master’s degree in Counselling at the University of Hong Kong.
I believe that regardless of culture or language, teaching is about making children feel safe, supported and valued by their teacher and classmates, and encouraged to express themselves free from judgement.
