As an educator, I individualize my approach to each student. I emphasize creative thought and the importance of taking the time to think. I find value in incorporating humour and fun within learning processes. In my teaching I often incorporate story-telling, songs, poems and games.
I hope to inspire my students by caring for them, having high expectations, and demonstrating that what they believe, think and love is important. I further strive to inspire my students to look forward to and can feel confident with learning. I think it is important to contextualize what we learn in the bigger significance of our world, ourselves, each other and beyond. I hope to inspire connections, purpose and aspiration between my students, the community and their future as learners and professionals.
As a teacher I believe it is important to model leadership, and never-ending self-growth. I want to continually be learning, and to always be critical about how I can keep growing.
