Jeffrey Machado’s fascination with language has followed him on his journeys from Jupiter, Florida to across the world, and nowhere at Raffles American School! He is dual-licensed in English as a Second Language and English Language Arts with an endorsement in Sheltered English Instruction. Jeffrey’s experience spans from phonics and literacy instruction to students in Taiwan up to debating hot topic issues with a group of international Ph.D. students from diverse backgrounds in Tallahassee, Florida. After spending time in Penang, Malaysia several years ago, Jeffrey is excited to be back in Malaysia as a part of the Raffles family. He loves the process of helping students learn the social and academic language that will help their personalities shine and lead them to success in and out of the classroom. Outside of school, he’s usually found pursuing professional and personal development, playing PC games, or shopping for yet another pair of suspenders.
