We have reached a point in our society where children are no longer encouraged to discover their passion, nor to look for their inner strength, but rather to measure success in terms of test scores and future earning potential.
Critical evaluations of assignments and assessments to measure their effectiveness as a form of progress must be our focus as educators. Modifying materials and methods to meet the needs of all learners is essential to the success of a holistic approach.
“Maslow argued that the primary goal of education should be to move students toward self-actualization and not simply to indoctrinate them with a body of facts and skills without regards to ethics or values.”
Educating young minds takes conscientious effort on the part of educators and parents. Drawing out the best in children requires empathy and a personalized learning plan. Motivation, interests and learning styles are among the contributing factors to creating a culture of learning. Providing powerful strategies to inspire Empathy, Respect, Kindness, Commitment and Cooperation in all students, should be the goal of every educator. Diversify Learning will provide in-home & online teaching services while collaborating with parents, classroom teachers and school districts. Workshops and coaching are available for families and educators alike.
Nazli, our son’s fourth grade teacher in Hong Kong, noticed differences in his learning from an early point in the year. She balanced teaching skills with providing compassionate support to both improve his academic standing, and his self-esteem. Her unwavering understanding of his core capabilities, and her fundamental belief in a collaborative approach, helped provide a platform for him to improve and find success in the day to day, particularly during a year of interruptions due to the pandemic.

It's hard to properly convey how truly thankful we are for Nazli. Nazli works with three of our children (ages 12, 11, and 7), who are all very different learners. In the beginning, her extensive educational background was apparent as she quickly pinpointed the children's individual strengths and areas to improve upon. She then created comprehensive learning plans based on her assessments and discussions with the children about their passions and interests. Her ability to connect with kids is impressive as she creates a dynamic where the kids are eager to meet her very high expectations while simultaneously building their self-confidence. I was worried that after a long day of school, the children would complain about working on their "special" projects with Miss Nazli but they never do. The children all see Miss Nazli as a coach, who has their best interests in mind. I'm so grateful that we have such a partner in learning. Nazli is making our kids the learners that we know they can be.

Ms. Nazli’s unique teaching style had a positive impact on my learning by helping me grow not only as a student but also as a person. For example, in Maths, she always encouraged me to show my work in different ways. In previous years, I had always been taught that the most efficient way to solve a math problem was to use the standard algorithm. However, Ms. Nazli helped me understand that other strategies, such as the area model or the number line, are more effective and easier to understand than the standard algorithm. In addition, she taught me how to take notes while I read. I used to think that taking notes was a waste of time, but she helped me understand that taking notes is super important for comprehending the text. Lastly, Ms. Nazli helped me grow in my character. She was constantly referring back to her character traits chart. For instance, she always emphasized having a growth mindset. She always pushed me to do more when I didn’t feel challenged enough and reminded me to have perseverance when things were too challenging. She even taught our class manners! To conclude, Ms. Nazli was an amazing teacher. I will always appreciate her unique teaching style and I hope her students will benefit from her and learn the skills that I learned from her.

Mrs. Nazli has helped me a lot as a learner. She has changed the way I look at things. She has encouraged me to tap into my traits of self-discipline, and self-motivation. Now when I do my task, I work not to just finish my work but to keep on going and ask myself how can I improve. In the time span that I have worked with Mrs. Nazli, she has changed the way I approach a problem and how I solve it. I am very thankful for Mrs. Nazli because she has helped me go from not only remembering but to analyzing and evaluating the information that's given to me (Bloom’s taxonomy 101 ).

Ms. Nazli is an amazing teacher. She is my son’s mentor. My son describes her as his lifelong teacher which brings him to a whole different level when learning. It is so encouraging to see this progress as a parent.
