Every student learns and develops differently within and across the cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and physical areas, and as a teacher, it is necessary to recognize these patterns of learning and development and then design and implement developmentally appropriate and challenging learning experiences.
I believe that this understanding of individual differences and diverse learning style ensure inclusive learning environments that allow each learner to reach his or her full potential.
I also work towards creating environments that support individual and collaborative learning, encouraging positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
I am an ardent proponent of the Callan Method, which proposes:
I want students to speak as much as possible: so I always want them to give long answers, not short answers.
Everything we do, we do many times. Something that is perhaps difficult the first time becomes easier the more times you practise it.
Every time a student makes a mistake I correct him or her.
