Learner traits are the traits you show as you learn and I think no one best suits those traits better than Stephen Hawking and his line of work. He expresses these three learner traits and more.

Risk Taking

He had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which put him into his wheelchair, while still trying to get his theory that black holes emit radiation noticed. He was expected to die in June 2015  and worked all the way through and exceeded that date. He is still alive and well, he just experienced a slight drop in health in 2015.


Stephen Hawking is confident because he has made several theories about space time relativities, black holes, and more. He also cannot talk so that would add difficulty to his  lectures about physics and other topics.


He spent a week with the Pope discussing how people can blend religion and science into their lives. He runs a charity called the Stephen Hawking Foundation which is trying to put a stop to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Those are the reasons I think Stephen Hawking is the perfect example for this learner traits post. Stephen hawking qualities can influence you by  well inspiring you. He has overcome serious situations and problems even when no one expected him or thought he could. he has pushed through every limitation he had and he is still going strong I believe  if he did all that you can do anything.

Well, that’s it for this post , I will see you on the next post, bye!

All About Me

Hi, my name is Gavin. I live in the Comox Valley and I am thirteen years old. I am currently in grade 7 at Brooklyn Elementary. It is a good school and I got one of the most fun teachers in the school.

Here are some of my hobbies. I am a good fencer (it’s like poking each other with sharp sticks). I usually compete in local championships and bouts. But my favorite type of fencing is epee although foil is good too.

Another one of my hobbies is downhill skiing because it is a fun, fast sport. I am not good at park skiing but I am fairly good at downhill.

My favorite movies are Austin Powers and the Breakfast Club.

Thanks for visiting my blog. If we have anything in common, let me know.
