MY TEACHING STYLE

I made a promise that wherever my journey took me ( which turned out to be all over the world),I would try to find out each student’s story and never give up on finding a way to inspire and motivate him or her to reach their highest academic potential. I would find a way to make a connection with every child. I envisioned a classroom that was safe for students to take risks, where there was mutual respect between students and the teacher. It would be a place where students celebrated each other’s successes and helped each other achieve. It would feel warm. All that entered would feel welcome, and only kind words would be spoken. Cultural differences would be embraced and acknowledged and trying your best would be rewarded. I would always have the highest expectations and I’d continue to learn the most innovative instructional strategies and techniques. I, too, would be a student and grow in my profession and encourage others to join me on my journey. That vision has been my reality in every place that I have taught. I embrace every child and my students are kind and respectful not only to me but to each other. I lead by example and my words are positive and kind. I deliver instruction with creativity, integrity and passion. My classroom is alive and I incorporate the SIOP model (Sheltered Instruction Operational Protocol) which is a research based model for teaching English Language Learners. There is communication and partnership with parents. Everyone, not just students, is welcome to observe and contribute. Every student succeeds and everyone shares in the celebration.
