Favourite Quote/Words to Live by: “Once you realize that the road is the goal and that you are always on the road, not to reach a goal, but to enjoy its beauty and its wisdom, life ceases to be a task and becomes natural and simple, in itself an ecstasy.” ~ Nisargadatta Maharaj
Do you have a favourite place you’ve travelled:
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
If you don’t try, the answer will always be no.
What’s the best thing about Taiwan?
The people for sure! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming. Once I was stuck in the rain and a total stranger came out of a building to give me an umbrella!
How do you support Foresight teachers in your role as a Program Support Teacher?
This changes on a daily basis. Sometimes I am leading a station, doing guided reading, or just helping maintain the flow of the classroom. It is completely dependent on what the teacher needs at that time.
What is the most rewarding part of your role?
I love the interaction with other educators and learning about their concerns and watching how they problem solve. It really is a educational experience for me, as well as a way to build bonds with other teachers.
