K1 homeroom teacher – Leigh-Anne Harding

My teaching philosophy is to strive to create a safe and fun environment for open conversations and group work to enrich the educational experience of every child. My goal is to assist students in beginning to develop the necessary life skills to become successful in life and not just in the classroom.

I aim to create a classroom where the students recognize that mistakes are not failure but rather a stepping stone to learn from. Thus providing them with a space to hone their problem-solving and critical thinking skills to reach their full potential.
I work towards being a good teacher because as Brad Henry once said, “A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning”

K2/2 homeroom teacher – Rory Hart

My teaching philosophy is to focus on developing students into well rounded individuals who are excited by learning and aren’t afraid to take risks. I strive to develop student autonomy in each class, building student confidence and independence.

By creating an exciting, energetic and safe learning environment, students are able to express themselves without fear, while developing a passion for learning through fun. I believe every student
has unique qualities and skills and I strive to bring out the best in each and every individual child.
