Mr. Kurt graduated from the University of Toronto, one of the world's leading research Universities. His focus was in the fields of geography and anthropology. Following his lifelong passion, Mr. Kurt completed his Bachelor of Education at Nipissing University's Schulich School of Education. Ever since then, he has been a teacher at the Toronto Disctrict School Board, the largest school board in Canada.
I believe that education is similar to the process of photosynthesis. During photosynthesis, the sun shines on a plant, providing it with solar energy. The plant in turn takes the energy it receives and converts it into energy that it can use to grow and develop. In this regard, teachers are like the sun, providing knowledge and experience to our students, who act as the plants we nourish. In order for my students to grasp and use the knowledge they are provided, as a teacher I take several things into account such as differentiation, the multiple intelligences, respect, care, and much more. The metaphor of a garden then directly represents the classroom well: a garden is comprised of many different plants, which are nourished by the same sun, but in different ways. In the classroom, each student is an individual who is unique and who have their own intellectual and diverse backgrounds and needs; as the major source of their learning, I believe that it is my responsibility to treat and facilitate the learning of all of these students equitably with regards to the various diversity levels found in my classroom, as well as conduct myself in the highest professional standard.
