 … to work in many culturally diverse class settings, which has allowed her to enhance the quality of her practice.

 

At the onset of her teaching career, Chelsea spent a year in South Korea teaching at an English academy to students of varying ages. This experience was incredibly valuable because it gave her first hand experience working with students in an international environment. Chelsea has spent the last two years working as both a supply teacher and full time class teacher in London, England. Chelsea enjoyed working in London as it is a multicultural city with schools that are inclusive and celebrate their unique diversities.

 

Chelsea’s teaching aim is to provide students with the encouragement that they need to become effective learners and manage students in a fair, inclusive manner that fosters the student’s development both cognitively and socially. I provide children with a broad and balanced curriculum allowing them to learn in a creative and engaging environment.

including Greater Manchester, Cheshire and Oxfordshire. Anna’s experiences have served to strengthen her belief that each child should be given the opportunity to achieve their full potential. To this end she encourages the children to embrace their learning and to link knowledge gained in a variety of subjects, so enriching their understanding of the wider world. Skills should be not only gained and practiced, but also enjoyed and shared. Anna has helped children apply these principles: through costume and prop making for school productions; by preparing entrants for Drama Festivals, and success in exams with the ABRSM.

 

Anna’s philosophy is that education should produce confident resilient individuals that can communicate and express their considered thoughts coherently. This begins with an understanding of each child’s starting point and with a nurturing environment. Starting her own education unable to speak English, she can empathise with this aspect of international education.

 

As Anna believes that learning should be a lifelong activity she has continued with personal studies. These have helped her to understand the importance of neuroscience in the learning process, which helps to support the ethos of the International Primary Curriculum.
