Year 1 Green Teacher
“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand. – Chinese proverb
I am Oana Ștefan and I am enthusiastic to begin my fifth year with Avenor.
Ever since I was a child I remember pretending to teach my younger sister as my only pupil and the wardrobe doors as my blackboards. Later on, I felt great joy in fulfilling my childhood dream and actually becoming a real teacher. In 2005, I graduated from The College for School Teachers included in The Faculty of Psychology and Education Sciences, at the Al. I. Cuza University in Iasi.
Learning did not stop there, I have passed the Definitivat exam and the FCE Exam and I have added some NLP knowledge in my bag, which helps me to provide the adequate context for children to wonder and be curious and get involved to discover new things and new situations where they can use their knowledge already learned. I believe that each child can reach their full potential once they feel comfortable and I focus on building trustful relationships with them where mistakes are just chances to improve or overcome challenges.
I enjoy every day spent with children in the land of wonder and discovery. Every day is filled with magic and learning… Every day is celebrated through song and laughter.
