Head of CP
Hello, I’m Rachel White from Kilkenny, Ireland. I have been teaching in Gems Metropole for four years and have really enjoyed the connections I have made with colleagues and families in
Metropole so far.
I hold a B.Ed in Education from Froebel College of Education, which is part of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. My wide-ranging teaching experience includes working in
mainstream classes, in learning support, teaching ESL and teaching in a deaf-blind school. These positions have given my the ability to cater for a wide range of social and academic
Having adopted my college’s ethos, I place a huge emphasis on child centred learning where the child’s own experiences and environment will form the foundations of his or her learning
experience. I have learned to nurture each individual pupil’s imagination, self-confidence and academic abilities to ensure that each pupil reaches their own individual potential.
Furthermore, I place great value on the involvement of parents in their child’s education. To this end, I believe in open communication between the teacher and the child’s parent/guardian, and the importance of creating a welcoming ‘open-door’ classroom environment for everyone who enters.
I am a kind, committed and passionate teacher who is dedicated to helping each child discover, learn and grow both as individuals and as a class group. I cannot wait to see your children flourish and grow in so many ways this year in Metropole.
