Educating the ‘whole child’ is a balance between meeting the child’s needs, a happy home and a safe stimulating school environment.  As an educator, I am passionate about giving students the skills and strategies to pursue their goals and interests. I believe that children feel happy and confident when they are driving the learning process. I believe in up-to-date, relevant curriculum that is intrinsically motivating and that gives students the opportunities to read and write for real reasons, and become active critical thinkers and problem solvers.

I believe that only when a child is happy, confident and met at their ‘just right level’ do they make academic progress.

I believe that it is a privilege to share knowledge and give young minds the skills that will allow them to follow their passions, in any direction they may choose. I believe that each child has unique strengths, and that it is a teacher’s duty to be part of the discovery process. I believe that teaching GRIT and a growth mindset is priceless in today’s world. I believe that a student’s creativity is limitless and should be nurtured and treasured at all times.

I am passionate about teaching reading and believe that everyone can become an avid reader! I strive to have strong connections with each of my students and see the importance of the ‘whole child’ when planning and teaching lessons. I use formative assessments to monitor individuals and to identify specific areas of focus. I also encourage my students to think deeply about the texts they read and to dive into the world that the author invites them into.

  • Ed Foundation Phase and Early Childhood Development
  • Golden Key International Honour Society

I believe that all students have the ability to learn, and that every student has their own “spark” to add to the learning environment. Every child is an individual and can explore their individuality comfortably.  My learners are encouraged to ask questions, become problem solvers, develop a skill for critical thinking and to be curious about the world they live in. I believe in a structured classroom space, with consistency and routine forming a safe environment for the learners to feel comfortable, and secure. I aim to create an environment that is inviting, exciting and safe, a place where children want to spend their day whilst learning.

I believe that there are key elements that are conducive to actively engage in meaningful learning and it is our responsibility to create that for our children. My role is to act as a guide for my students where learning takes place through hands on activities. I believe in choice and encourage a child’s natural curiosity to influence their leaning.
