Mr. Dorji Drukpa, Asst. Professor

Philosophy of teaching and learning:

Provide a brief description of your personal philosophy of teaching and learning and any other details that can market you as an academic. The whole writing here could be done in not more than TEN sentences.

I believe that all students are unique, valuable individuals who all learn in different ways, and come to institute with varying backgrounds, languages, ethnic diversities, interests and needs. My job is to try to build on their strengths and experiences to engage them in learning the curriculum that I am required to teach.

I think that the best way to do this is to look at the standards and the text materials provided, and use them to plan lessons that employ many different modalities, such as those defined by Howard Gardner’s seven intelligences. I take full responsibility for the job of trying to reach and teach every student, so that all may become successful in my classroom and that they build a love of learning and the self-confidence to reach for the future they want to achieve.
