I am currently teaching Elementary (Grades 1 to 6) but my teaching experience also comprises: Kindergarten; Middle School; High School; Adults
Multiple intelligences, especially the visual/spatial, verbal/linguistic and the bodily/kinesthetic - Hands on Learning with a focus on integrating curriculum - Cooperative learning - TPP lesson structure comprising as much TPR as possible.
The Elizabeth Frink Art Trophy - The Andrew Grant Scholarship for Design Excellence - The Martin McLaren Scholarship. More important than any awards, however, are my students' actual achievements- for they are more fulfilling and meaningful. My students' accomplishments are my true rewards.
BA (Hons) - MA - TESOL/TEFL - Method of Instruction Cadre Certification
Studying the psychology of perception for my first thesis, instilled in me the need to better understand those different ways of learning (multiple intelligences and in particular, the visual/spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, verbal/linguistic, musical/rhythmic and of course, the inter/intrapersonal). Consequently, learning to cater to these learning channels, is something I strive towards in the practice of a sustained state of self-improvement as a professional educator. I am also involved in the creation of iPhone & Android apps, the fundamentals of which I teach as an extracurricular class at school. Recently, creating TpT clip art as a by-product of my school lessons prep, has proven a satisfying outlet for my artistic cravings. If you'd like to have anything custom drawn or created for you, please ping me via my Facebook page ~ I'd love to make you happy!
