Feedback form is now closed.

As ELT professionals, it is essential that we know what motivates us as individuals. We also need to know how to maintain balance with the many personal and professional roles we have in life. Having a personal vision statement can keep us grounded on a daily basis.
A teaching philosophy also helps keep us focused as ELT professionals. A teaching philosophy is a statement of the beliefs, values, goals, theories, and principles that guide our teaching. A philosophy serves as the starting point for engaging in reflection-for-action, reflection-in-action, and reflection-on-action. The combination of your philosophy and reflective practice will facilitate your continued growth and development as an ELT professional. Six notable recommendations for articulating and using your teaching philosophy will be provided.
