I. The biggest lessons I have learned from my own teaching and from observing peers and experienced teachers.

I have got rich experience to learn new things and unlearn some others. Though, I have been teaching for thirteen years, I didn’t get chance to reflect my teaching and learning from others. I used to believe in student centered teaching but didn't have much idea. The CELTA course has nurtured and strengthened my passion as a teacher. It has rekindled my desire to be an innovative, resourceful, and hardworking teacher. It has given me an opportunity to reflect on my teaching, has made me confident as a teacher.

I have learnt following things from Mr. Jamil:
• Lesson planning.
• Staging lesson clearly

I realized that teaching is not about what happens in the classroom, but it is the sum total of what happens in and outside the class in terms of teacher and students relationship.

I’m not so good in analyzing language which is essential in planning...
