“I became a teacher for a very simple (albeit perhaps somewhat cliché) reason - I want to make a difference. While there are many fields in which I could accomplish this goal, I feel that education is the one in which I can have the greatest impact. Every day, children around the world are being told that they aren't good enough, or that they just "can't". As a teacher, I feel I have a positive platform from which to dispel that fallacy. I realise that teaching is a profession that can be supremely exhausting, but I know in my heart that the benefits outweigh the fatigue ten times over. Teaching requires patience, understanding, compassion, and enthusiasm - all things that I am more than willing to provide on a daily basis.
In this portfolio, I hope you will find everything you want to know about my philosophy and views of education, my teaching style, and many aspects of the learning I have completed so far. Hopefully, in navigating this page, you will come to understand who I am as a teacher. My goal is to highlight the strengths that make me a passionate, efficient and useful addition to any teaching team.”
