My Educational Philosophy

I believe …That education is empowerment, liberation of the mind and a journey of discovery of self and the world.

Learning... Is fluid, its everywhere and a natural part of our existence and survival.

The role of a teacher... Is to advocate for learning, facilitate the best environment and photo (69)opportunity for learning to take place. To Inspire and provoke the mind to engage in the learning process.

The classroom... is a place well adapted to suit individual student needs, a place of positivity, organization and diversity. Its a space of collaboration, debate, exploration, reflection and experimentation, where there are no wrong answers, only learning opportunities.A place where each child is equipped, recognized and appreciated.

Teaching... is supporting students to discover and nurture their potential. I believe the constructivist methods of teaching allow for student-centered learning where student2013-05-28 08.41.17s take the lead in their learning and inquiry. Teaching is providing relevantly differentiated work and challenges are used to stimulate further inquiry. Teaching is providing instruction that is deep and wide in scope to facilitate trans-disciplinary learning. The use of research based sequential and progressive teaching
methods for student achievement.

Special Needs Education... Is equality. Children with Special Needs are always the hardest workers. Their unique learning styles and strengths demand continuous knowledgeable and skillful teaching. It is to foster independence, equip students with skills and knowledge whilst students to reach their full potential.

Success.. is the ability to try again and to introspect.
