Educational Philosophy:
As a teacher I believe that I have full responsibility for mental, physical, emotional and intellectual growth of my learners. I think being a teacher comprises of not just being a leader or role model to encourage children learn but also be a facilitator that inspires them to inquire, question, reflect and act. I see each child as a unique individual and that every child brings his/her own charm and adds more value to classroom interactions. The belief of learning being a journey from known to unknown is and always has been a driving force while planning my lessons. I think it helps learners to build on their experience and therefore celebrating various cultures, planning lessons that involve learners in the process, enabling learners to identify their learning goals will help learners make better connections. I also see celebrating learner’s class success as a means to bring a feeling of pride, contentment, appreciation in learners. I encourage collaboration in classroom, I see peer learning as a very strong tool to class success. As a teacher, I see my success in my learners becoming more confident, responsible and self-driven individuals.

Experience: 5 years (ADP, Orchids school, Cambridge school)
Educational Philosophy:
I believe that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. It is my desire as preprimary educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment, (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the child’s natural curiosity to direct his learning, and (3) promoting respect.
