As an educator, I believe in the Children and youth agency as a crucial tool to raise their voices and empower their participation in the decisions related to their welfare and education. The rapid changes in each generation's requirements can make it difficult to cope with it, but each child still needs to be loved, cared for, and listened to. Therefore, my top priority is building a relationship with the children and earning their trust and respect.
Supporting all stakeholders in the educational process, including students' parents, is essential to improving children's character and overcoming their challenging behaviours. Understanding the culture and traditions background is vital to building a solid communication channel. By checking the School Dairy section, you can find various initiatives and activities created by me to come over many educational and behavioural aspects and have a healthy, safe, positive and sustainable classroom/school community.
Cooperation between teaching and non-teaching staff is always required to avoid the hassle or misunderstanding of school procedures. Moreover, reflecting in groups about the students' academic and behaviour performance will always end with fruitful results.
My goal is to challenge the students daily with meaningful, engaging, and purposeful learning in the class. I want to provide my students with possible opportunities to grow and become critical thinkers and problem solvers. Moreover, in my classroom, I offer my students an inquiry-based lesson on world situations to learn to conquer issues at school and in their lives outside of school. I want to instil a passion for learning inside each child.
As an educator, I believe that students need to be reflective to improve upon areas of difficulty and build upon areas of strength. One example of how I help my third and four graders become self-reflective is by conferencing them individually. We have a mutual power of conversation and discussion about where the right choices have done and how to avoid the wrong ones during this conference. As we hold these individual conferences, it aids me in the discovery of how differentiation may be beneficial to the success of my students.
As every child is different and learns differently, I consider that students need different auditory, visual, and kinesthetic experiences when planning lessons. Therefore, I need to be flexible and modify my classes to reach all students. I differentiate through the content, process, and product depending on my student's individual needs.
When my students, past or present, walk into my classroom, I want it to be a place where they know they are loved, safe, and cared for. I believe the greatest gift I can give my students is to love and believe in them.
