I see teaching as a journey of self-discovery & growth. Everyone comes into a new classroom as a beginner with the goal of learning. As they continue to learn, they evolve and develop new skills and talents. I see my classroom and guidance as providing the conditions necessary to thrive, grow and evolve. When this phase of the learning journey is complete, the learner will have had a transformative shift in their abilities and will fly off to the next learning experience.

    Kudos to you for taking the time to craft a meaningful ‚ÄúTeaching and Learning Statement” – I really appreciate your metaphor, linking teaching to being a caterpillar – to view teaching as a journey of self-discovery and growth – the learners in your care thrive, grow and evolve and ‘will have had a transformative shift in their abilities and will fly off to the next learning experience’.
