As a teacher, I endeavor to refine my teaching by seeking students’ feedback, encouraging dialogues with my students in and outside of class, talking with colleagues, researching and experimenting with new methods. On the other hand, I anticipate my students will take responsibility for their learning and understand who they are as global citizens and how they can make a difference in the world they live in.
As a critical and transformative educator, I dedicate myself to creating spaces for my students to imagine alternative possibilities and act for social transformation. I believe that collaborative authorship between teacher and student in the classroom is the key to creating possibilities for transforming a positive change in the way that my students and I perceive our education and the world. Collaborative authorship learning is also a way to create dialogues between us to continually pose problems and challenge the taken-for-granted ideologies occurring in our daily lives.
My perception of writing is not merely a group of words and phrases putting together to transmit ideas or a tool of communication with others. Instead, I perceive writing as a way of exploring and understanding one’s self-identity. It should also be seen as an inquiry into the many different ways of how we view the world in which we are living as well as how our personal experiences connect with the world. I believe that such an act of writing as an inquiry and as personal will help empower the voice of student writers in academic writing and allow them to become a more critical writer.
