Hello everyone! I am Miss Amira and I have been working as a Teacher in training in Swallows and Amazons since the start of 2021. From September 2021 I became a class teacher of the pre-nursery class, The Hornbills.
I was a Freelance Enrichment Preschool Teacher for 2 years and was exposed to teaching Phonics, Olympiad Mathematics as well as Speech and Drama to N1-K2 children. After that, I decided to further my studies in Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) at James Cook University and successfully graduated in December 2020.
I believe that children deserve to learn in an inclusive classroom and that every child should be able to receive high quality education without any discrimination. It is also crucial to promote equity and excellence in children’s learning and development as this will then allow them to be successful learners, confident and creative individuals as well as active and informed citizens. Additionally, I believe that children learn best through play as they learn how to socialise, think creatively, negotiate, notice new things and overcome barriers. As SAA’s philosophy is “putting the EQ into IQ”, I believe that play helps to develop positive attitudes in children towards learning, giving a good foundation for continuous success at school and skills for life-long learning.
