I am a knowledgeable and passionate teacher and I believe that with the right encouragement and motivation students can achieve academic excellence.
I plan for many exciting opportunities to ensure that students are stimulated and interested in what they are being taught. My experience as a teacher have given me varied circumstances in which to develop valuable experience, such as planning alone and team planning, split year group teaching and developing a wide range of assessment opportunities.
I like very much my job and follow my training as a teacher; I am improving my abilities both of teaching and understanding the way of teaching according to the different students. In fact, I also taught for two years to a student with disabilities who needed additional support to achieve her academic potential.
Certainly to learn is always demanding, but I think an enthusiastic and motivated teacher could be able to interest the students; the most important thing is that they felt like a valued human being, not just a number.
It is necessary to find a way to motivate them to learn: first and foremost I think that a good relationship between teacher and students is essential.
I am also flexible to meet the schools needs for extra-curricular activities and I have many interests outside of the teaching profession. For example, I have a strong interest in all aspects of theatre.
I have also travelled through USA and Europe, gaining an awareness and appreciation for many diverse cultures.
For me, school is not just about individual classes and teachers. I believe that it is important for school staff to support each other and I am keen to share ideas, teaching resources and best practice with other staff members.
I believe that this collaborative approach to work acts in the best interests of the school, promoting good teaching practices that impact positively on children’s learning.
Moreover, while my job experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, I excel at:
- Increasing student concentration, participation, and accountability.
- Creating personalized curriculum.
- Designing creative lesson plans and utilizing diverse technology and methods, tutoring and mentoring individual students.
In addition to my experience and personal qualities I am certified to teach in both Italian and English, and also I have a Master’s in Philology and ancient Literature (Greek and Latin).
