OkinawanGirl Lisa has a postgraduate diploma in elementary school education from the University of Glasgow, Scotland where she graduated with merit. She is a self confessed nerd with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Internet Software Development. In June 2018 she successfully completed a PDA Leadership and Management course in Services for Children and Young People.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that if pupils are encouraged to take responsibility for aspects of their work, and share learning experiences, they are more likely to identify correlations between ideas and concepts, and become more astute as independent thinkers and problem solvers. Therefore, every child, regardless of ability, can enrich each other’s learning. Accordingly, I make frequent use of collaborative learning techniques to share experiences and promote team building skills. When introducing new themes or concepts for learning, I encourage pupils to reflect upon what they already know and utilize their knowledge to participate in the lesson planning process. This helps promote critical reflection and understanding whilst simultaneously encouraging enquiry and discussion.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Whilst studying at university for my undergrad degree I won "Multimedia Student of the Year" for two consecutive years.
