Preschool teachers network launched by former military man
Group gives about 2,000 members a platform to discuss industry issues
The champion to raise the profiles of preschool teachers here comes from an unlikely source - a tall and strapping former military man.
Twelve years ago, Mr Philip Koh made the switch from training NSmen to teaching preschoolers their ABCs, after more than a decade in the army.
Three weeks ago, the 49-year-old set up a network for preschool teachers to talk about issues close to their heart - from salary issues to how best to motivate and teach young children.
The informal group - believed to be the first here - has a presence on Facebook, and has since drawn close to 2,000 members.
