Dr Shirleen Chee, Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC).  Dr Chee is no stranger to the Methodist schools in Singapore, having served as Principal of Methodist Girls’ School from 2007 to 2013, where she spearheaded the introduction of the school’s Integrated Programme, leading to the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Previously, she was Principal of Bukit Panjang Government High School from 2003 to 2007.  From 2008 to 2014, she simultaneously served as a member of the Executive Board of the Academy of Principals.

Prior to joining ACJC, Dr Chee was Divisional Director for the Educational Technology Division at the Ministry of Education, where she set the direction for the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in Education.

While she is passionate about her work, she is a strong advocate of leading a holistic and balanced life. Dr Chee is happily married with three children. She also serves as a Sunday School teacher at Life Bible-Presbyterian Church, and is a doting grandmother to her 15-month-old grandson, Elias.
