"It is important to recognise that every child learns in their own unique way. To learn effectively, children often need to have information presented to them in a way that stimulates their learning preference. The learning process for children must also be an engaging one and I have always encouraged children to aspire to try their best at all times, an attainable target for every single child. I love teaching and it has always been a real passion of mine, which I hope comes across to my students. As a teacher, it is my duty and responsibility to be the best role model I possibly can to all of the children I come across. Teaching is a real privilege and there are few if any other professions that can have such a profound and long-lasting effect on people's lives."
Ari Guha, Head of Junior School
"Teaching is special at Redlands because the children are beautifully behaved and highly motivated, in addition I am teaching a curriculum that is meaningful to them and inspiring to teach. At Redlands we give our students the tools and guidance to promote learning. We provide a platform for them to leap from and the courage to seize opportunities. The relationship I have with my students is one of mutual respect. They are great fun to be around and coming to work is a joy, they inspire me with their commitment and desire to learn."
Joanne Benneyworth, Teacher
"Teaching at Redlands is a wonderful experience because of our well rounded and open-minded students, our passionate and dedicated colleagues and the great variety of opportunities available to become involved in and grow from. It's a great pleasure to be part of a co-educational environment that is constantly looking forward to the future. I've always felt that students learn best when they are happy, safe and actively involved. Then they can become even more curious, inspired and eager to learn. It's so important to include good humour and a sense of 'wonder' into every learning experience".
Sophie Tebbutt, Teacher
"In order to get the best of my students, I feel the first thing to do is to build a rapport with them individually and as a class. I feel that by building a sense of community within my students, they are more inclined to work together and work to the best of their abilities. I also find it important to ensure that each student is aware of the standards I hold and I work alongside the students to build them up to that high level."
Peter Latimer, Teacher
"Redlands feels like a community. The teachers and parents work in partnership to assist our students to work towards achieving their potential. I strive to inspire my students to love learning and to do their best. I do this through encouragement, providing interesting, creative and stimulating learning experiences and supporting their individual needs."
