MY TEACHING STYLE

How does one define one’s teaching style? I have taken time to carefully reflect on the personal matters and professional attributes that come together in forming my teaching style. :

I would say I hold a ‘hybrid or adaptive’ instructional philosophy. It is this philosophy or view that ultimately impacts my teaching style. ‘Who’ I am teaching, ‘what’ I am teaching, ‘where’ I am teaching, ‘when’ I am teaching, ‘why’ I am teaching … this all somehow plays a role in determining ‘how’ I teach at any given point in time. The actual methodology seems to present itself in an intuitive manner. This intuitive or gut-instinct for what is the appropriate teaching style at any point in time I suspect is instinctively drawn from 30+ years of experience as an educator. Such experience has included the teaching of a large variety of subjects to a great age-range of multi-national learners. It has included the upholding the role of a school administrator - department head, Assistant Principal, Deputy Principal, Principal, Supervisor…etc It has included the opening of an educational business in Hong Kong.

In summary: “I make every effort to adapt my teaching style to meet the individual learning styles of the students I am interacting with. It is not always easy; actually, it is very demanding – however, it is my professional responsibility to do all that is possible in allowing each and every student an opportunity to attain success. I believe that it is the wealth of a lifetime of experience in the education field that has allowed a fine-tuning of my intuitive choices in ensuring the appropriate in-class teaching methodology." -Vaughan M. Blaney

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I am proud to come from a family of educators. My father, The Honourable Vaughn Blaney is the former Minister of Education and Higher Education for the province of New Brunswick, Canada. My mother, Diana is a former school teacher. My brother Michael is presently the Director of the Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Org Unit : ECLS - Systems and Data Support (Unit) in the province of New Brunswick, Canada; my sister Barbara and brother John have both held numerous teaching positions and administrative titles in the education field. I started my career in education in 1985 and over the past thirty years have dedicated my life to the profession.

I have extensive experience teaching children, adolescents and adults. I have taught all imaginable ages from Nursery level toddlers all the way up to middle-age adults. At the high school level I have greatly enjoyed teaching English, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, Economics (and a wealth of other subjects). I have held numerous titles in the education field which have allowed me the opportunity to serve as an educational leader in both Canada and Hong Kong. I hold the belief that it is important to reflect on one's own educational history as one philosophically contemplates the future of education:

The Horizon of Education: "The only major change I see in the education of future generations is a change in the tools we use - after all this is what our technological era is all about. What we access with those tools will simply be what we as a society of humans have placed in the cyber world of knowledge. Traditional subjects will, I believe live into eternity... and along the way we will upgrade things with new discoveries and undoubtedly new subjects will be designed and added to the student curriculum. This is all as it should be as we successfully ensure the preservation of human identity on its never ending natural course/journey of evolution." -Vaughan M. Blaney

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My personal interests include: playing piano, working on the general formula for prime numbers, reading all things related to science, carrying out literature reviews on psychological disorders, researching all matters related to education - technology, culture, integrated learning, blended learning,...etc.

My greatest interest is in the workings of the mind; in particular the role of intuitive thinking in an educator's decision-making process. The final paragraph of my MEd dissertation titled "Principalship and the Sixth Sense" rings light to this interest:

"And so as this research began with a question - Does 'The Sixth Sense' play a role in the School Principal's decision, making process? - so it shall end with a question:

If as this thesis suggests 'The Sixth Sense' does play a role in the School Principal's decision-making process, is it not time to pursue further in-depth study to validate and understand its importance ... is it not time that we celebrate its role in the field of education by accepting and teaching its legitimacy to future educators?"
