I am an ambitious and motivated life learner. My life philosophy is to question everything. My teaching philosophy has grown from my previous experience as a yoga teacher. My outlook on teaching is that children do what you do and not what you say. The pedagogy borrowed from Singapore in 2004 of ‘Teach Less, Learn More’ resonates with me. This framework encourages educators to focus on the quality of the lesson and the integration of technology as opposed to the quantity of learning.
I am energised by undertaking new learning experiences. Therefore I thrive in an environment of like minded people who are committed to their own journeys of teaching through informed practice, learning through experience and reflection. I am currently learning how to integrate technology into my classroom. I am excited to be the student immersed in this new digital environment. Within this new learning environment the students and I learn alongside one another. I believe this makes learning more engaging and authentic for children when they have the opportunity to make meaningful connections with what they are learning about.
In future I hope to build highways with children so they can make connections with their learning community via digital learning journals and blogs.
