I will be conducting a project that I started in Macau: YOU & ME– A Parent & Child class that helps to develop their skills, confidence and self esteem. This course offers Gymnastics, Dance, Play, Sing nursery rhymes and so much more! Parents can develop Social, Emotional skills and build a fit body with their babies.
I believe that education is sharing knowledge, sharing experiences, creating links, building a learning process between educators and learners. Working with young students through play, focusing on their senses and building meaning to the learning process, is the best way to teach.
Educators follow a certain path; they choose different strategies and methodology to support each student needs. I believe that classroom is a fertile soil to plant a variety of learning opportunities. Students learn with the teacher, the teacher learns and improves with students. School is the climate, the essential minerals, and substances to feed the school community. We learn and improve our own experience. Teachers improve their performance by working, exploring, investigating together in a positive and healthy environment.
I respect multiculturalism and diversity. I believe in inclusion! All learners are unique and learn differently. Each child understands the learning process and content in a diverse way. I believe in student-center approach. I believe in Play-Based and Inquiry-Based learning.
The teacher should allow students to demonstrate their knowledge through different abilities and share their ideas. Make the students feel motivated and proud of their work. I always try to be fair and give opportunities to each child.
I believe that exploring with our senses, building relationships and developing emotional and social skills are powerful in early childhood learning process. Children learn better through play, by investigating with their own experiences with open-ended and sensory activities.
If a teacher spread a positive energy, happiness and teach with enthusiastic, they will influence and motivate their students.
Learning is a process of joy. Without joy, knowledge is a process of memorization, no meaning… no understanding.
I believe that teaching is building a link, between trust and respect. A consistent bridge between learners and educators.
I believe in the power of sensory play in early childhood education!
