They will feel happy with the delivery of the lesson, having developed an understanding of the essential teaching skills such as story-telling and classroom management strategies. They will also have professional goals which will allow them to keep motivated, continue developing and improve financially.

Poder evoluir tanto profissionalmente quanto como pessoa é gratificante, ainda mais com uma pessoa tão inspiradora quanto a Claire. Tenho aprendido a riqueza dos pequenos detalhes, o valor da autorreflexão e a importância de tudo e todos que configuram na aprendizagem. Estou aprendendo conceitos que não usarei apenas na sala de aula, mas sim na vida e sei que ao terminar o curso serei um ser humano muito melhor daquele que sou hoje.
