I am Swati, a devoted educator with over twelve years of experience as a student-focused teacher. My expertise lies in developing diverse science-based curricula, specializing in general science, mathematics, and chemistry. Known for my positive encouragement and interactive teaching methods, I’m committed to fostering diversity, inclusion, and addressing individual student needs. With a Master’s in Chemistry and a background in special education, I bring a unique blend of analytical thinking and creativity to my teaching. Currently, I am contributing to the academic success of students at Rockingstone Height School in Halifax, Canada, as an observant inclusion teacher.
Interests
Intrigued by the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, I am keenly interested in exploring solutions to enhance online learning and teaching methodologies. The pandemic has underscored the importance of adapting to a digital landscape, and I have witnessed firsthand the struggles faced by both students and teachers due to limited skills in this domain. Enrolling in this program reflects my commitment to acquiring advanced skills, enabling me to contribute effectively to the evolving educational landscape.
