Hello! My name is Adam Hassen.
I am a teacher candidate at the University of Ottawa. I will be teaching in the junior/ intermediate division. My teachable subject is general science but I enjoy teaching all subjects.
I believe that education is a journey. One everyone takes together: teachers, students, parents, community members, everyone. As a teacher, I want to help my students get to wherever it is they want to go, or maybe help them find where it is they want to go. To do that, I strive to establish relationships based on trust and respect. To get to wherever it is they are going, students need to participate in their learning; they need to ask questions, try things, make mistakes and its my goal to make sure that they feel like they are safe to do so.
Coming into the teaching profession, I am excited to share my passion for doing what I do with as many people as I can. I have learned that you never stop learning, even as a teacher… maybe especially as a teacher. And there are so many of us on this adventure. That’s why I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts and experiences on my journey in the hope that it might help someone else on theirs.
Let’s all learn together!
