It may be cliché to say that one is a life-long- learner, however I feel that it best describes the role of a teacher and what I feel is important when engaging students in the world around them.
This portfolio, as well as this year, has been about just that. How do I make learning meaningful and relevant for students, all the while reflecting on my own progress and making steps to improve? This can sound all too easy at times, en yet when we are conscious of our learning, it not only helps us to improve shortcomings, but celebrate successes, which is no small feat. I look forward to next year and continuing to find new ways to reflect and improve my teaching.
