I am absolutely a facilitator of learning in the classroom. I enjoy facilitating the learning, because it means my instruction focuses on activities, and it stresses student centered learning. This kind of teaching style allows students to take charge of their own education. When the teacher is a facilitator, it allows students to learn independently, and to actively participate and collaborate with other students.
