What do I love about teaching?

Just some thoughts from some John Colet teachers...

"I love teaching because I have the ability to shape young minds. I love the enthusiasm that children bring to their learning."

"Not one day is the same, every day is full of surprises, unknowns and inspirational learning moments. ( lightbulb moments.)"

"The innocent mind brings me back to reality at times, remembering their age and experiences and everything that is before them."

"The students become a part of your life, as we take on the journey together."

"It is the most rewarding job to be able to shape, educate and build up a rapport with these beautiful children."

"Watching children light up when they connect with their learning is one of the best parts of teaching. When a child has that moment it’s as though a new door opens and their understanding of the world expands a little more. I find this one of the most satisfying parts of teaching."

"Connecting with a child’s natural curiosity and finding ways to nurture this is a great challenge in teaching and one that I enjoy. Once a child’s curiosity is sparked it’s like magic, they can take you anywhere."

"When children in my class rise to a challenge or take on something new and persevere even when they may fail at first and I get to see them grow within themselves I feel very happy to be a teacher."

"Love being a teacher as you are able to watch students grow not only academically but emotionally, socially and spiritually."

"Each day is never the same as a teacher, there is never a dull moment. The children like to keep you on your toes!"

"As a teacher I love seeing the 'light bulb' moment in a student's eyes. The determination and eagerness to understand new concepts of the children in my class continues to inspire me."


Cultural development and personality building.

I wish John Colet School had an affiliated high school to continue the quality of the education.”

It is like a big family and the principal greets the children every morning at the gate no matter how hot or cold it is.

Our children have had the best possible education and whole-self development thanks to the school ethos and their incredible teachers. The continuity of children & teachers with the classes has been... Read More

We really like the nurturing environment where our children are being taught and also the school values being reinforced throughout their time in John Colet.”

Students are exposed to Sanskrit and Latin. Academic focus.”

John Colet has a unique sense of community that it is a privilege to share

I like that the school is small and it feels more like a community.

Passionate teachers dedicated to developing hearts and minds to the full potential of the individual. It's wonderful to see everyone living the school values through all aspects of school life.”

The focus on peace and stillness creates a discipline in the students that helps them excel

Our son’s enjoyment, confidence and his ability to adjust to High School I feel are a wonderful testament to the amazing learning environment at John Colet.

Tailored teaching to the strengths of the child. Varied and enriched syllabus/programs”

Loving teachers always keen to improve their teaching. Focus on the whole child. Walking the talk

Great headmaster & teachers Ability to deal with different levels of ability in classroom which appears seamless & without ostracizing those at the outer edges of the spectrum.
