Xplore Asia – Michael Volpe, PhD – Managing DirectorJacqueline (Jaya) Lewis came through our organization Teach Explore Asia, Co. Ltd (XploreAsia) in May 2018 and taught in Thailand from May 2018 until February 2019.
While with XploreAsia, Ms. Lewis took an orientation course. Following the orientation course, Ms. Lewis taught students from kindergarten to primary six and performed exceptionally well, integrating within the community seamlessly, showing flexibility, adaptability, and teaching competence that put her at the top 5% of the class of over 700 teachers we graduate and place in Thailand each year.
In addition to her work in the classroom and assimilating into the culture, Ms. Lewis overcame many challenges. Her biggest challenge she overcame was learning how to effectively communicate with her students in class. She was able to overcome this by learning to speak slower, and repeat instructions, essentially changing her behavior to better help her students.
In the time spent in Thailand, Ms. Lewis taught about one hundred and twenty students per week and also taught about fifteen students after school in after-school care classes. Her biggest achievement while in Thailand has been overcoming the challenges she faced everyday in the classroom and persevering in teaching her students, even when she felt they did not understand or did not like the class. In future, she would like to teach in either Vietnam or South Korea in a private or international school.
Ms. Lewis’s great energy, passion for learning, and skills make me very confident that she will make a strong contribution to any organization that hires her. If you have any questions or would like further information on Ms. Lewis’s performance or contribution while teaching in Thailand, please do not hesitate to contact me. – January 31, 2019
Sarah Nesti Willard – Art Instructor (UAE University)
EXCERPT: I have had the pleasure of working with Ms. Jacqueline Lewis (Jaya) for about two years, whilst employed at the Institute of Applied Technology in Al Ain, UAE.
Jacqueline has been firstly employed as a Creative Media Teacher and then, in the second year, she also undertook Creative Design.
As a colleague she has always been helpful, collaborative and often went out of her way to help other peer teachers, as well as students. Jacqueline and I, in fact, have spent some time training each other on various Adobe programs and applications, which were requested from our institute.
As a teacher, she is assertive but also very giving: she would go out of her way to help those studentswith potential, supervising them and helping them get on with their work even out of school time. Ms. Lewis has also a finely developed personal moral:she would stand up for a cause, if she truly supports it.
To conclude, I would like to say that, technically, Ms. Jacqueline is not only an excellent producer and filmmaker, but also a refined singer and actress; as far as I am concerned, she keeps her skills up to date by being involved in many different projects that involve singing, acting or producing short films. She is a truly creative person, and for this reason I would recommend her for any position that requires an innovating and independent mind. – July 30, 2017

Agata Stadnik – Creative Director AGATASI had the pleasure of working with Jaya for about two years; while she was part of the Creative Media team, teaching grade 10-12 of Emirati high school students – I highly recommend her. She is very creative, passionate, dedicated and consistently good-nature, even under extreme pressure. Jaya is a great team player, positive and always willing to work very hard to help students grow – she was invited twice to be an Expert for the EmiratesSkills National Competition ’14 and ’15. Jaya will be a great addition to any creative team. – June 24, 2015

Rosemarie Zalec, Grad Dip Ed (Teacher Librarianship), Charles Sturt University Student Wellbeing, Special Needs & Environment OfficerEXCERPT: I am delighted to recommend Jaya Lewis to you. She would be a great asset to have on a school staff in any school – primary, secondary or tertiary. She works well with children and young people. My students felt very comfortable and at ease as Jaya discussed ideas and worked with them to develop the film. She understood them and treated them with great respect. Children very quickly trusted her and were very “natural” in her presence. As an educator she understands learning and is very supportive of students as they “have a go” Her performing arts background assisted her as she helped to “coach” children to be confident in front of the camera.
I want to pay tribute to Jaya’s most recent film that she developed, “Be aware, take care” I am delighted in the way Jaya has managed to capture with her film making skills, the joy of learning the children experienced. She has been most sensitive in her final editing of the material that she filmed. The children in the film are having fun, are masters of their own learning and doing a first rate job “teaching kids”.
My final word: Jaya is a delight to work with. She is hard working, competent, creative and very dedicated. She knows her material and will seek to find out should there be a need to learn. Jaya is very professional in her approach to her film making.
Jaya knows and understands the correct protocols and procedures and follows them. She speaks with a quiet authority and is approachable at all times. I value her expertise, her knowledge and her professional approach.
I highly recommend her to you. Furthermore, I am willing to provide additional feedback, if requested. – August 21st, 2013
