About Katherine Stewart:

 

 

I am an Elementary School teacher with four years of experience in British and International schools. I am moving to Vancouver as a permanent resident in spring 2023. I am in the process of getting my Teacher Certification recognized in British Columbia. I trained as an Elementary school teacher at Goldsmith's University in London and worked placements in inner-city schools throughout my training in 2018. Before achieving Qualified Teacher Status in the UK I worked as a teaching assistant in French bilingual schools.

I am of British-Italian nationality and completed my high-school education in Brussels, Belgium. I am fluent in three languages English, Italian, and French. I currently work at the European School (I) of Berkendael in Brussels and am part of the anti-bullying management team at the school. My interests are child development, ecological and holistic education, and inclusive teaching in elementary schools.

May 2021 - Present (1 year 7 months +)Current teaching post

  

I create a strong learning environment that is conducive to children’s learning in line with the European School system. I organize and upkeep the classroom in a way that aids all pupils learning and prioritizes inclusivity. I teach subjects of the European School Primary curriculum, writing and reading (Language1), Mathematics, mixed sciences (Discovery of the World)), and social and emotional well-being (KIVAanti-bullying policy). I maintain great communication with staff members in more than one language and work productively in a multicultural educational environment. I communicate aspects of a child's development with the child, their guardians, and the school professionals. I attend staff gatherings when required and hold parent meetings bi-yearly. I promote the safety and well-being of the children in my care.

I implemented a targeted, differentiated approach to English teaching in an international classroom setting. I created an immersive English learning environment for pupils from different linguistic backgrounds. I enhanced pupils’ learning by implementing attachment-based teaching approaches. I optimized well-being in the classroom by planning and constructing lessons and lesson plans. I reinforced classroom inclusivity and promoted collaboration by using team-based educational strategies for reinforcing pupil behavior. I maintained high expectations of pupils by reinforcing classroom values and differentiating learning targets. I actively monitored and recorded child progress through designated applications and software. I communicated effectively and respectfully with parents, carers, and other staff members.
