As an educator, I believe in the power of education.
I believe that every child has the right to an education provided by a teacher with a passion for learning.
As a teacher, I want to encourage students to push themselves to become more and accomplish more than they thought they could by focussing on hard work and determination from my students.
Using differentiation provides every single student with the opportunity to succeed. As a teacher, it is my role to find out what works for my students instead of expecting them to conform to what works for me.
Educational technology is something that all students can benefit from in some way. I believe in incorporating technology into my classroom and creating responsible digital citizens.
As a teacher, it is my responsibility to provide a safe classroom for ALL students and other members of the school community by accepting, valuing, and learning from diversity.
In my classroom, I will act as a facilitator and help students to be in control of and responsible for their own learning.
I believe in culturally responsive education and decolonizing the classroom space. As an educator, I will remember Canada’s history while working within the classrooms space to begin to decolonize certain practices.
My educational philosophy revolves around every student feeling safe, welcome, successful, and open to learning in my classroom. By providing my students with what they need to be successful, and focusing on equity over equality, I will create a classroom space that every child is a part of. I believe in being a teacher that students can talk to, share stories with, and trust. Every child’s voice should matter.
