Teachers often complain about the lack of opportunities in the profession.
27 years old Dylan Mackenzie has been teaching in China for four years, and has worked his way up from being a biology teacher to head of department for grades 9-12, to now being the foreign academic director for the Limai Chinese American International School, which comprises grades 7-12 pupils.
The former Hudson Park High School pupil was inspired to pursue a career in teaching by his parents, Jillian and Charlton Mackenzie, who have been teaching for almost 40 years.
“My dad is a deputy principal at Cranberry Primary and my mom is our voice of reason that drives us to always be better. My success today has been moulded by them.”
The new designation has made him the youngest SA director in China as well as the youngest African academic director, which is equivalent to deputy principal in SA.
“My job entails observing and training teachers, implementation of the foreign or international curriculum, dealing with parents and interviewing potential pupils.”
