The variety of methods is endless, so it is crucial to be willing to widen our horizons as I carry the responsibility of developing the skills and knowledge of the future generation.
Creativity and imagination are characteristics that are included in my personality. I see education not just based on what we need to teach but more importantly on how we teach. My ethos is:
1.-To encourage children to express their ideas and suggestions as I believe it is extremely important for them to have control over their learning.
2.- First-hand stimulating experiences, which I both include in my lesson's plan. I always think about them thoroughly ahead of each session because it helps to get the best of them during each one. It is also crucial to anticipate various possible reactions from the pupils to maximize the intervention. For example, when I explore a new food with an autistic child to increase his tolerance; I always plan movement breaks or mindfulness, to help him to calm down.
3.- For every child but, especially for SEN children, I am flexible across a spectrum of abilities, cultural backgrounds and emotional considerations. I provide tasks and resources according to their levels. For example, I always provide a chart with the activities of the day so it can be ticked once they are done. I also have a reward chart so the child has something to look forward to at the end of the activity/lesson.
I also consider their personal development extremely important and, from my point of view, the best way of achieving this is by offering a good role model during day-to-day activities. I cannot oblige them to say “thank you” or “please”, but by doing it myself and modeling them I can help them. How can they enjoy a lesson if I, myself, am not interested in it? The enthusiasm for learning begins with me.
I am a highly-skilled Primary School Teacher who has a position as a Learning Support Assistant and as a Spanish Teacher at Fox Primary School.
I count on 3 years of work experience as a teacher and LSA in the UK and Spain. In a total of 8 years, when including tutoring and supervisor experience. I also count on an updated course at ELE International specialized in how to teach Spanish as a foreign language.
During my degree, I did my first year training in a mainstream school as a Year 2 class teacher and specialized in listening and speech skills. In my second year, I trained as a speech and language therapist at an SEN school.
Before getting into the British education system, I have tutored in Spain subjects such as Maths, English, or Spanish grammar, children aged four to fifteen. This experience helped me to become a confident teacher and as an individual, I self-motivated, enthusiastic and sociable person.
