I am a foundation English Language instructor. I have been working for HCT for two years, but have been an English teacher for over 25 years. I am American by birth, but have lived in the middle east most of my adult life. A few years ago, I returned to school to get my master's of education. I learned a lot about my profession, but I also learned a lot about myself. I learned that I am a constructivist by nature - I believe students should be heavily involved in their learning. I learned that I am a visual learner, so I have to remember that not all my students are like me. I learned that I can trust my instincts. I have also learned that I love learning - I hope to be a life long student. If I don't learn something new during the day, it was a day wasted. I want to learn more about teaching and learning. I hope that by sharing, we can all accomplish this. Thanks.
