I am a maths and science teacher. I teach because I want to close the gap of social injustices in our education system. I believe every child can learn if they are availed the opportunity and support.
My area of interest in education is inclusive education and mathematics education. I believe all children can learn maths if it is taught explicitly rather than implicitly. I would like to see learners move from rote learning to learning for understanding in such a way that we produce critical thinkers who are well prepared for the 21st Century.
Our education system should improve literacy and numeracy to achieve this goal. My vision is to see improvement in maths and reading literacy rates as well as the accessibility of education for all regardless of race or socio- economic status.
