As an IB DP/MYP History, DP Psychology and TOK teacher, I believe in the power of discovery to
motivate students to be lifelong learners. My goal is to create an environment for discovery, enabling
students to learn through inquiry, reflection and collaboration. In the process, I learn a lot about the
way my students learn, which allows me to continuously refine my curriculum and teaching methods.
I apply the same approach of mutual learning when I collaborate with colleagues or train other
teachers as an educational consultant. These experiences have taught me the importance of lifelong
learning, a lesson I strive to teach to my own students.
