A highly motivated and hardworking individual. After volunteering for a few months in an Elementary School that helped me to understand the value of sharing learning objectives and success criteria with children. Now working in a school my time has developed my philosophy of valuing each student as an individual, as well as part of a community. I aim to give the student as many learning opportunities and experiences as possible in order to engage, motivate and prepare them for future life.
Progression needs to be planned for, so that as student work and explore at their own pace, there is always something else ready to move them on and take them further in their learning. I also believe that differentiation and meet varied learning styles are key to effective teaching and learning. Work should be set at an appropriate, but challenging, level. When I prepare lessons I make a conscious effort to ensure I am not just catering for visual learners like myself, but try to see lessons through other learners' eyes.
