Core to my philosophy of education is inspiration. I believe that a school should strive to inspire every learner that comes into the classroom to believe in their talents, apply their abilities and reap the rewards of learning. Inclusivity is important and I feel that as a member of an educational establishment no learner should ever be left out in the cold; we must motivate all learners. We must work hard to find ways to allow each learner to meet their potential, and even exceed their apparent potential.
