Dr. Kinley, Asst. Professor

Philosophy of teaching and learning:

We live in a rapidly changing society, in the age of globalization and the information and communication revolution.In today’s world, we need to be able to strike a balance between flexibility and strategy.As educators, we must guide our students to discern between the potentials and prospects, the benefits and opportunities of globalization and the new information technologies on one hand, and the dangers, threats, and pitfalls on the other.Teaching today is a process of learning from your students, colleagues, parents, and the community. Accepting that every classroom has its own unique community; my role as an educator will be to assist each child in developing their own potential and learning styles.. It is our greatest responsibility today to nurture every child to assist  develop in them the sense of freedom and responsibility in making the right choices in life.
