NET Teachers

Hello everyone! My name is Josh Carubia and I am excited to become the new School-based Native English Teacher at Kwok Man School. I have been teaching English in Hong Kong for several years and cannot wait to get started and meet you all.

A little bit about me: I was born and raised in Liverpool, UK. There’s lots that I miss about home, except the weather! I have a dog called Alfie who likes to ignore me on FaceTime when I try to talk to him. I have had an interest in sport since I was very young; I enjoy playing and watching tennis and athletics but my main interest is in football. I am a big Liverpool F.C. fan and even in Hong Kong, I don’t miss a game. I like to be active; I play football and go to the gym every week and think it’s important to keep fit. I love spending time with friends, whether that’s finding new places to eat or hiking some of the great trails Hong Kong has to offer.

Hi everyone! My name is Wesley Wiegand and I was born and raised in South Africa. I am the new English teacher at Kwok Man School. I have been a teacher for the past 6 years, teaching in South Africa for 5 years before coming to Hong Kong where I’ve taught for a year before joining Kwok Man School.

While teaching in South Africa I was also a sports coach who trained children different athletic items, rugby, cricket and long distance running.


My interest in teaching began with my family. My sister is a teacher in the UK and always spoke of how rewarding it is. After finishing a degree in Psychology, I took the decision to begin a new career in education.

 

I am always enthusiastic to learn and become better than I was yesterday. I will be no different at Kwok Man School and expect to come into a fun and exciting learning environment to exchange knowledge and experiences with students and teachers alike

I love living in Hong Kong! For the past 9 months I’ve been living in Mong Kok where I enjoy walking around the busy streets and visiting the different street markets in the area.

Since moving to Hong Kong I’ve been exploring the beautiful outdoors. I often go hiking, swimming or biking with my friends. We have lots of fun seeing the beautiful landscapes Hong Kong has to offer and we find it very interesting to learn more about the country’s culture and its proud traditions. 

I have a real passion for helping students and it’s my goal that all the children I work with reach their full potential. I look forward to teaching at Kwok Man School and can’t wait to meet all of you!
