As we break into summer, a lot is concentrating our minds at GBN.
Don`t judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree...the essence of education for me.
Having spent the major part of my life teaching in Primary schools, including supporting children with special needs, my experiences have led me to the firm belief that we should celebrate diversity because what makes you different can make you beautiful. None should be left next to the road; someone must be there for them. I cannot accept that we ignore and abandon those who are different.
We are all different in one way or another and that gives each of us our value and uniqueness. Every single person has a hidden treasure even if we have to hunt for it, discover it.
I have found that when working with a child, we support each other at the same time. Like this, we both develop, flourish, advance, expand, grow and progress.
To do this, I listen actively, observe attentively, learn, search for methods and teach in a personalized way with realistic goals that children reach. I help them realise their full potential and settle down in the ever-challenging school environment as quickly and successfully as possible.
Making a difference in someone`s life and shaping a young personality are the greatest gifts and the biggest responsibilities in life.
