  2. Affikah Fazlyna Bt. Omar
    Head of Unit (DG48)

    I began my teaching career in a secondary school in 1999 and later went to the Penang Marticulation College. My ardent desire to improve the level of English among students has led me to manoeuvre my career path towards becoming a teacher-trainer. Appointed as Guru Cemerlang in 2009, I started giving courses and training to teachers at various levels as required; and later aggrandized my efforts when I became an SISC+ in 2014. Now, I hope to stretch even further towards fulfilling my goal, driven by the vision and mission statements of ELTC.
