Each school adopts a particular teaching method to meet its mission. However, every educational institution shares the responsibility of developing students. At Brillamont, we are committed to empowering our students in the following ways.
1. SET THE EXAMPLE
Children are products of their environment. At the early stages of their development, children’s brains are like sponges: they copy what they see and hear around them. We find it indispensable that our teachers and staff set a good behavior and speech example for their students.
2. LEARN VALUES IN REAL LIFE
Every day presents an opportunity to learn something new. These opportunities are great for teaching positive morals to children. At Brillamont, we use daily classroom activities to instigate conversation about current world events with our students. These conversations allow us to better understand our students and their personal voices. Often times, analyzing world affairs gives us a great opportunity to instill positive values in our students and teach them right from wrong.
3. MAKE CHILDREN ACCOUNTABLE
At Brillamont, we understand that mistakes are an essential part of life. It is important to create an environment where failure is not frowned upon or ridiculed. We encourage our students to overcome the fear of making mistakes and try new things. When they do fall short of the goal, we make it a point to teach them the lesson that can be learned from the mistake.
4. ENCOURAGE HELP AND COLLABORATION
Practicing simple acts of kindness can make a big impact in a child’s development. We encourage children to help those in need. It can be as simple as helping the teacher with supplies or taking notes for an absent classmate.
5. APPLAUD GOOD BEHAVIOR
As educators, we collaborate with our parents in making the student aware of his or her progress and good behavior. We believe that positive reinforcement has a very deep impact as it helps boost kids self-esteem and self-confidence, contributing to a better overall environment. Happier students means happier classrooms.
As educators of our future leaders, we are well aware of the commitment we have to our families and society as a whole. Our goal is to do everything possible to develop students who will thrive in and out of the classroom.
