I am a student currently studying a Higher Certificate In Pre-school Education in South Africa with the hopes of studying towards a Bachelor's Degree in Foundation Phase Education. This Fundraising Campaign is aimed towards funding my trip to Vancouver, Canada in 2021. There is a conference being held by the World Forum Foundation and the conference is geared to enrich, empower and equip educators with monumental skills and mindsets to further nourish the children we teach.
I am passionate about the field of education and helping to grow the importance around the profession. I am so thankful for the platform I have access to in order to achieve my goal and the opportunity provided to me with help from generous people around the world.
The best part about this journey is that I am not in this alone, I have the support of my family and friends but most importantly, I get to share this experience with my best friend of 12 years, Chevaune. We are both dedicated to the goal of reaching the conference. We get to travel and experience the gift of expansion and modernised teaching approaches and I get to share this with her.
My teaching philosophy is that I believe all children are unique and my role as a teacher will be assist each child in developing their own potential and learning styles. I believe that as a teacher I will learn from the children as much as they learn from me and want them to know that we will grow together.
This journey is the foundation of my "Pay-it-forward" vision to, in the future also assist with advice, knowledge and monetary support for the next generation of future educators.
