Candidate's Resume

 

Overview

 

My role as the teacher is to help and encourage students to gain skills which will, in turn, help them to become self-sufficient and achieving adults who can take responsibility for their own futures and play a role in the development of their communities. I believe this is possible by teaching students to set personal goals for their learning and encourage them to find ways of achieving these goals by making use of problem solving skills.
 
My philosophy is based on mutual respect; creating a caring and positive atmosphere in the classroom, where all ideas are welcome and challenged to push further than surface knowledge. Experience has taught me that a teacher should address the students’ physical, emotional and social needs before even attempting to teach them, as this will enable them to develop to their full potential.
 
I want to give students the opportunity to succeed and have belief in their own abilities, to set goals, take risks and participate in all activities. We all know that success breeds success and my main aim will be to give every student in my class the opportunity to experience success at their own individual level.
 
Creating a positive atmosphere in the classroom is extremely important to me. I endeavour to make my classroom and visual aids not only attractive and colourful, but also meaningful to the learning situation. The learning environment should be a place where students can see their efforts and successes acknowledged and celebrated; an environment that students are proud to be a part of, and that celebrates its students and their success.
 
My firm but fair style of classroom management is always popular with students and I always show a commitment to school life: I spend more time running extra-curricular programmes than the average teacher.
