Versatile, resourceful and student focused educational practice professional with over 20-year proven experience in administrative, teaching, curricula development and guidance skills.

Methodology

l
Both as an instructor and an administrator, I have employed strategies to provide an individualized approach in education. Therefore, I strive to bring out the best in every student and have demonstrated an ability to conduct classroom activities in a safe and respectful manner and create a respectful and all-encompassing school culture by encouraging positive social interactions, active engagement, and self-regulation in every student. Development of higher order thinking, and meta-cognition is a focus of my curriculum development practices. I employ a wide variety of educational tools for teaching and learning and supply ample opportunities for balance of deductive and inductive student-centred activities. Through dialogue and questioning students are encouraged to investigate their individual interests for optimal outcomes and situate their epistemological and ontological beliefs.

Background

I have over 20 years of classroom teaching experience encompassing a variety of subjects and age groups, three years in an administrative position as a school principal at an independent school and over 12 months as a BC curriculum development consultant with Xianda Collage, Shanghai, China.
