Hey there!

I’d like to tell you about my educational worldview. What really gets me up in the morning (besides the enticing aroma of freshly brewed coffee) is my unshakeable belief in a student-centered approach to education.

I believe in the words of Piaget, “Every time we teach a child something, we keep him from inventing it himself.” I reckon the traditional "chalk and talk" method is about as engaging as watching paint dry. Instead, I'm all about flipping the script and putting the students in the driver's seat of their learning journey. It's a bit like teaching them to ride a bike - I'm there to guide and support, but ultimately, they're the ones pedaling away towards their own discoveries.

Picture this: a classroom where the walls are practically buzzing with questions, ideas, and the occasional lightbulb moment. A place where mistakes are not just tolerated but celebrated as stepping stones to understanding. That's the kind of learning environment I'm passionate about fostering at LIA. Because let's face it, curiosity didn't kill the cat; it made the cat a lifelong learner.

Now, I know what you're thinking. "Glen, how do you manage to keep your sanity amidst all this student-driven chaos?" Well, my secret weapon is a hearty dose of humor (and maybe the occasional dad joke). I firmly believe that laughter not only makes learning more enjoyable but also more memorable. So, don't be surprised if you catch me cracking a joke in the middle of a workshop or during school evaluations. It's all part of the plan to keep things light-hearted and engaging.

In all seriousness, though, my ultimate goal is to empower our students to achieve their full potential, both academically and personally. By championing a student-centered approach, I hope to inspire them to become inquisitive, knowledgeable, and caring individuals ready to make their mark on the world.

So, here's to the endless possibilities that lie ahead for our students at LIA. And remember, "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." Let's keep those fires burning bright together!
