Summary

I am a community builder both for students and staff always trying to make things better. I hold a 4 year Bachelor of Education with 2nd class Honour's and have been teaching for over 9 years. Always an asset to the organization, I bring a unique set of skills and experiences ranging across all year levels including middle and senior school, familiarity with British curriculum and an extremely diverse set of cultural, social and religious settings. I embrace every opportunity to fine tune my teaching skills. Working closely with other teachers learning to meld our strengths for the benefit of the students and working in tandem has allowed me to develop my communication skills even further. I strive to attain excellence in teaching by demonstrating creativity and innovation in the design, planning, managing of learning activities and effective delivery of curriculum; Promote student achievement by setting high but achievable goals; Recognize student diversity and devise strategies to work effectively with them; Engage, enthuse or inspire students into loving my subject by demonstrating genuine interest in them. It is up to me to differentiate lessons to cater for the diverse needs of my students, both linguistically and academically. Setting individual targets with students helps them internalise their learning goals and enables me to measure their progress.
