The teaching learning journey is a dynamic, continuous and challenging process. It is beyond the boundaries to what we learn in schools in our initial years of life. We learn from our environment, positive and negative past experiences, and from the people with whom we interact. It is the teacher who brings an enormous impact on shaping the personality of the learners. Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that vary not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. It is the teacher who provides students with the necessary tools to develop their knowledge and skills and facilitates them to think critically. In addition, when the positive learning atmosphere is coupled with innovative teaching and learning strategies, creates environment conducive for critical and lifelong learning. This paper will highlight on my teaching philosophy under diverse spheres of student, teachers, teaching and learning cycle and the learning environment, and how combined phenomena can foster lifelong learning among learners.
