Focused Conversation 1 Flourishing About Me 14 January 1982 My Education My Working Experience Why TEACH? "From the classroom experience I have gained through a year of group tutoring, I have seen my love for teaching grow and it has shown me that becoming a teacher is very much the correct career path to embark on. Therefore I decided to apply to join MOE in 2010." Teaching Philosophy "I believe that the role of education is to provide students an opportunity to learn from a foundational base of knowledge while teaching them the skills necessary to become self-motivated, life-long learners. As a teacher my role is to facilitate an environment where students can become self-directed learners. Students should have access to vast amounts of multiple resources. The classroom should be focused on students exploring concepts and creating their own understanding as it relates to them personally. The student is emphasized as the centre of the classroom environment where I, the teacher, provide an atmosphere that is open to reflective and experiential learning." Teaching Philosophy "I'm a strong believer in a "toolbox" approach to teaching; the skill lies in selecting the appropriate tool for the task in hand."
