We are enriched by our diversity
Teachers as well as students have their own learning styles, thus these are the styles that they are most comfortable with, the style that they understand most.
However, teachers also encounter a vast number of students with various learning styles and many of them will probably have different learning styles than their teacher. Is this a problem or a blessing? Being a teacher means that you are open and interested in learning, therefore this is a perfect opportunity to get to know the other types of people better. In getting to know how others learn best, we learn ourselves and expand our knowledge, understanding and expertise. Thus learning about others is truly beneficial.
I myself am a strong visual learner, however I sometimes notice that rhythm and the sound of a language/word is helpful in learning as well. Nevertheless, the latter is hardly my favourite and most helpful learning style. In spite of this, when I try to apply this learning style, I see that it helps my students and I become more literate in it, learning new ways how to apply it and how to differentiate it to various activities and exercises.
Probably what I am trying to say is that submerging yourself into unknown situations or inexperienced learning modes may be not only valuable to the students we teach, but also it develops and expands our own personality and experience. Being a teacher provides you with countless opportunities to grow and develop. Let us keep our eyes and hearts open.
