As a teacher, it is my obligation to offer my students the experiences they need to become literate. By this I don?t mean just good decoders of words. My students will learn how to make meaning, use text for information and pleasure as well as analyse and think critically about what they read. By offering a balanced and comprehensive literacy program my students will develop skills in oral communication, reading, writing, viewing and representing. It is my duty to show students the power of language in all aspects of their lives.
I have now been teaching for the past five years. This is my third year in a primary classroom. I also have experience teaching in a congregated classroom, Special Education Resource Teacher and Primary Intervention for reading.
