French & Theater Teacher
My educational philosophy is to make students love the class environment and enjoy learning. Accept and respect each other differences such background and thought. Keep them engaged and help them achieve their high expectations.
Grade 2 Teacher
What I like about my position is that it gives me the ability to shape opinions and help form ideas about society, life and personal goals. I believe that I can also expand students' limits and push their creativity.
MS & HS English Teacher
I believe in showing my students the importance of having an open mind when it comes to learning, nurturing the natural desire for knowledge and understanding, and using what you learn in the real world. Reading, writing, listening, speaking, and thinking are all skills that can be developed to serve students in their lives. When we learn to articulate what we do and why we do it, we build responsible communities, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Grade 3 Teacher
AISM gives me a great opportunity to experience new things, learn about different cultures, and expose me to challenging situations that help me grow professionally.
Grade 4 Teacher
My philosophy of education is that all children are unique and must have a stimulating educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. It is my desire to create this type of atmosphere where students can meet their full potential.
MS & HS Science Teacher
As a middle school science teacher my philosophy of teaching science is to use hands’ on activities. The only way students can learn science is to experience themselves. Science is all around us and the students need to realize and understand that. They need to be engaged and interested in what they are learning about. The best way to accomplish this is to guide them to asking questions and to try new things.
Learning Support & Admissions Coordinator
I believe that all students can learn, but not the same way or on the same day as someone once said. Teachers are facilitators of learning, teaching students to become life-long learners and contributing members of society. We must recognize that our world is changing rapidly and to accommodate all learners, we must continually adjust our teaching style and methods.
Middle & High School Math Teacher
I like working at a school that places importance on math as part of the curriculum on attainment and improvement. AISM sets high standards and provides support in my role as a teacher to achieve the objectives of the curriculum. AISM creates an environment that is conducive to effective teaching and learning. I feel that my teaching style would fit well with the program, and I could help encourage more students to enjoy math and succeed in it.
Grade 1 Teacher
I have a lifelong passion for learning and I enjoy passing on the knowledge that I have acquired to others. In addition to that, there is so much to be learned from the youth and I am always excited to grow with them. I love my position because it creates an opportunity to instill confidence and new learning strategies in the students.This encourages them to reach their full potential.
Principal & Counselor
I believe learning is a lifelong process. As an educator, I too must continue to educate myself and seek professional development opportunities to grow. I have adopted the belief that my role is not limited to just counseling and guidance for my students. I am also perceived as an educator, who supports my students in the classroom and outside of the classroom.
Grade 5 Teacher
"Being an educator means modeling effort, collaboration, discipline, reflection, culture, accountability, and much more. It is implementing positive relationship-building strategies within our teaching practices. What we pour into young minds, pours out into society. Building a strong sense of classroom community is at the forefront of my educational pedagogical approach. The trajectory of my educational career shifted when the lens of caring about what my students did to caring for who they are was reflected in my core beliefs. This unconditional positive regard is truly what the field of education is all about."
