Award recipient Karen Tan-- I teach math and I love it that this subject brings infinite surprises. Many of our NP students enjoy math just as much. However, there are times when my connection with math does not run parallel to the instincts of some of my learners. It is important for me as an educator to differentiate the delivery of learning according to my learners’ objectives, preferences and pace. I integrate numerous teaching strategies and methodologies to create exciting learning experiences. I have learnt to make room for errors, respect the learner and reveal the elegance of mathematics. I’m not yet the best math teacher but if I practice enough, I might get there someday.
Award recipient Aaron Micah Vogt-- Aside from the assumed expertise that a teacher is expected to have, effective teaching relies heavily on implicit cues that students invariably pick up on. If a teacher does not seem enthusiastic about what they are teaching, it will be very difficult for the students to find their own enthusiasm in the subject. This is especially important when the student is at a point in their life when they are just beginning to be exposed to subjects that they might not have been aware of previously. Good teachers who demonstrate their love of the subject can inspire students to look at it from fresh perspectives.
