PERSONAL INFO

I am a dedicated and self-motivated teacher with many years of experience instilling the love for learning to young hearts and minds through developmentally appropriate practices and activities. Learning will exist when teaching is done with passion because it is a vital method in promoting education of good values and academic skills in the formative years.

PHILOSOPHY

Teaching is a vital method of promoting education. It is the job of an educator to ensure that students receive a quality education. Through teaching, an educator helps her students learn by giving opportunities for children to explore the world and express themselves. An educator will guide the students to meet their end goal, that is, to attain happiness through the different developmentally appropriate activities which will contribute to their domains of development. As an educator, I believe that the education of a child is the foundation of his life. That is why I am more challenged to learn about teaching creatively through different teaching strategies and materials that will be effective to the learning and enjoyment of children. More so, I want to touch the lives of the children not just academically, but also morally and emotionally.
