I graduated in December 2016. I immediately became a substitute teacher where I have been blessed with a variety of experiences and opportunities.
I am a lover and supporter of Inquiry-based learning. There is something great about student investigation and hands-on learning. Although I believe that some learning situations don't allow inquiry based learning therefore I try to remember my role as the facilitator, providing guidance and support for students through the learning process rather than giving learning opportunities away.
