When it comes to my thoughts on educating or working with my colleagues, it is all about listening, observing and being an example of what I preach. I think we are all constantly learning. Not only can I teach them but they can teach me as well.

    I took this quote (“When you are teaching, you should take your students as your kids or take them as yourself.”) from a Ted Talk video and it has really impacted my teaching and training. It helps me to think more from my students’ side when I plan or deliver my lessons which not only breaks down barriers but also builds a special bridge between us.

        I have a deep love for teaching and really enjoy working with my students, especially creating art projects with them. Outside of school, I enjoy reading and learning about different cultures. I learn more to have more ideas and thinking to teacher my students better.
