Mr NickSchool Prep Teacher
Starting my career as an English teacher at the age of 23 was a turning point for me. Prior to that, I had worked in a career guidance center after completing my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. As a child psychologist, I witnessed the profound influence that teachers have on their students' lives. I saw that the knowledge children gained in school often remained unused within the pages of their workbooks, disconnected from the real world. Determined to bridge this gap, I embarked on a journey to become a school teacher.
Through my experience, I discovered that incorporating drama into the learning process leads to incredible results. Alongside my formal training in psychology, I pursued courses in drama therapy. I realized that when children are immersed deeply in the educational process and connected to real-life applications on a daily basis, they develop a strong bond between feeling intelligent and valuing new knowledge.
While working in schools, I also had the opportunity to explore different educational approaches during my travels to China. I was fascinated by the distinct methods employed in the East compared to those in the West. This exposure broadened my perspective and enriched my teaching practices.
In accordance with my belief that learning should be enjoyable, my creed remains: if you're not having fun while doing something, you're doing it wrong. I believe in transforming rules into catchy songs, singing them throughout the day.
I believe in creating formal ceremonies with an anthem to celebrate every new sound in phonics or successfully applied rule.
Constantly cultivating a love for learning, infecting children with a thirst for discovery, and nurturing curiosity about the world are the guiding principles I live by as a teacher.
Allow me to share a little about myself. I am a master of sports in powerlifting, which has taught me discipline, determination, and perseverance. Additionally, I speak Chinese and Spanish that enable me to constantly seek optimal ways to engage and enhance my students' learning experiences.
In conclusion, I am driven by the desire to inspire and motivate my students. Being an English teacher is a passion which pushes me to improve my skills. By creating an inspiring and engaging learning environment, I strive to empower my students to unlock their fullest potential, making a lasting impact on their lives.
