Mr Graydon Culver

Reception Teacher
University of Canterbury - Graduate Diploma in Teaching and Learning (Primary) University of British Columbia – Bachelor of Arts – Anthropology
My teaching philosophy is motivated by the desire to foster in children the courage to grow beyond their perceived potential. I put this into practise by cultivating an imaginative, active learning environment that rewards risk and celebrates mistakes as opportunities to learn. Beyond the classroom, I am an avid cyclist and traveller (lately combining the two) who loves to cook – whether on a camp stove or at home. I am most excited to work every day with staff and students from around the world and to find out if all these Duolingo lessons in Russian are paying off!
