Paola Magliano

Indigo Learning Sub-Provider | Johannesburg | H.Dip.EdB.Ed(Hons) Special Educational Needs

My name is Paola and I do what I love...I teach! I have 25 years of teaching experience. I started my teaching studies with a four year H.Dip.Ed and after 10 years of teaching in a mainstream primary school, I decided to further my studies and attain a B.Ed (Hons) Special Educational Needs. I also completed other courses along the way – I added to my qualification a TESOL course and a computer IDSL course. I am always on the lookout for educational workshops and seminars. One of the most intense and interesting workshops I attended was a Stark Griffin workshop which focused on dyslexia and ADHD. The best part of teaching is learning and when I say this, I mean I do the learning. As a teacher, I believe that there is always room for growth which can only come from learning. One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned is that there is no such thing as a lazy individual. He who appears lazy, just finds it challenging. If the brain is trained correctly to overcome any difficulties or inhibitions that are stopping learning, laziness soon turns to a proactive ambition. I love my teaching and would not exchange it for anything. People say they can see my passion for teaching, but to me, it comes naturally.
