For instance, in the global pandemic and present situation worldwide my specialist subject teaching is critically important to community fitness, health, mental, physical and social well-being. The child’s environment and health and safety are also vital. Accounting for diversity, equal opportunities, inclusion and language also makes it possible – and lessons have to be engaging, fun and innovative! One of my greatest strengths is community, inter-personal networking and positive relationships with parents, students and teachers. It is the collaboration between “community (externally and internally) of learners” and members of a society that makes it succeed as a “team” together in the world.
