The Power of a Personal Teaching Philosophy and How To Create Yours
As teachers, we’ve chosen this profession because we believe in making a change and impacting lives. But every educator has unique experiences, values, and motivations that drive their personal teaching philosophy. How do you communicate your teaching values to current and future employers or to your students? Whether you’re just entering the field and looking for a way to differentiate yourself in the job market or you’re an experienced teacher but haven’t honed your value proposition, this webinar is for you! Join Bridge Education Group to learn how you can craft a teaching philosophy that showcases your unique mission as an educator. The webinar will be hosted by Erin Shaw Hernandez, a longtime English teacher and language school owner, who will discuss the topic with a panel of ELT experts.
This panel is based on our article on BridgeUniverse: ESL Philosophy of Teaching Statement: What Is It & Why Does It Matter?
