Teaching is a lifelong process of learning from my students, colleagues, parents and community. It is a journey to discover new strategies, new ideas and new understanding. I love learning about the uniqueness of different children and support them to grow physically, mentally, emotionally and socially.
As an early childhood educator, I believe in each child’s learning capacity and each child is unique in his or her perspective of thinking. I value the importance of children’s feelings and perspective and hopes that I can facilitate and communicate with them with an open mindset.
Children learn best when they feel safe, secure, welcome, and most importantly when they are actively involved in their own learning. I believe that there is a unique gift within every child and that as an educator, my task is to help them find this gift and provide each child the opportunity to reach his/her full potential.
I believe that the purpose of early years education is not to fill the minds of students with facts, it is to facilitate them to think of possibilities that work. It is only achievable when we are willing to enter their world and start thinking like them, in their perspectives.
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.
We should not demand respect just because we are adults but instead, it should work both ways. I believe children are capable and should grow in a respectful and caring environment. It is our duty as teachers that they feel safe and cared for under our care.
We are humans before teachers, and so we are fallible. I enjoy participating in children’s play and experiences to understand them better as well as to learn from them as they look to us to learn.
教育信条：每一个孩子都是独一无二的个体，也是充满潜力的宝藏，而兴趣刚好是打开这个宝 的钥 匙。所以培养兴趣，培养思考能力是启蒙教育的基础。我愿意陪孩子们一起探索这未知的世界，用相信的力量去成就每一个孩子的梦想，创造更多奇迹。
