iLOVETOTEACH was created to share some of the things I’ve learnt over the years.
I really do believe that we need to create an environment of wonder in our classrooms where teachers transform their classrooms into spaces of creativity by teaching creatively.
We are all creative if we take the time to think beyond the textbook. We do it every time we create a lesson with a particular student or group of students in mind.
Let's Take a quick tour below
I love writing about how other teachers are finding solutions to needs in their classrooms. I wrote my thesis back in the late 1990’s on Teaching English as a Foreign Language, with a focus on Writing. The project was over a period of several months with fifteen Solomon. Teaching back in Australia, I have come to the realisation that there is a great deal of grass roots wisdom out there that is only passed on via a one on one basis. The purpose of this site is to make that wisdom in some small way be out there, at the fingertips of every teacher. The posts are just my humble opinions, plus research, that I have seen really work for other teachers and myself. The posts are divided into five categories: creative teaching, managing behaviour, new teachers, student engagement, and technology. Do comment and let me know what you think.
Over my twenty plus years of teaching I’ve become more aware of how we teachers have an ability to think critically, to solve learning problems and share informally on a daily one on one basis. Our goal here at ILTT is to share some of the resources I and gradually others have created and are creating. Naturally it takes time to create but we hope to add to the resources gradually. A third of the sales profits go directly to our teachers in Solomon Islands.
ilovetoteach also has a Pinterest account on different teaching topics. Perhaps you’d like to pin something so we get an alert to visit you. It’s amazing the ideas one can just pick up, just from looking at someone else’s Pinterest Board. It’s like walking into another classroom. We also have Twitter and Instagram accounts. Just choose one or as many as you like of the social love hearts – and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
