Education: Training programmes for schools and firms (Get Digging) / Self -Realization studies / Early Childhood Development / Drama / Gardening.
Experience: I took my interest in teaching further to understand better about the development of children from a young age (Early Childhood Development) to better understand and facilitate better management of emotions. Through my teaching journey, I learnt how to use different teaching pedagogy to connect better with children together with their parents.
My journey took me to Centre Stage when I was finding a way to use Arts and Aesthetic form of expression to teaching. I was involved in bringing children to production and self-expression unleashing the potential of using drama as a tool to effective communication and building confidence and creativity in children. Students who were not displaying keen interest in social activities were having so much fun through the process. It was a joy to see them so happy and myself to be able to guide and witness their growth!
Teaching approach / motto: For me, journey is more important than the destination, thus, as a facilitator, my emphasis is always the process rather than the results.
Releasing the pressure, expectations put on the results usually brings in more joy and satisfaction in creating the project at hand and also forging smoother social - emotional skills within the team.
We discuss the broader picture as a class and then find the pebbles leading to it and sometimes we try to connect the pebbles to bring us to our goal, making each journey, one of growth.
Play is a beautiful process, and having a focus, makes play meaningful. I encourage children of all ages to question the reason behind doing things, as with that, emotion gets better understood.
