From my experience I recognize that teaching children is unique and therefore it is necessary that as teachers we should be flexible and provide opportunities for them to expand their skills, and interests, about themselves and their future. My conviction and personal thoughts are based mainly on supporting the children by respecting and recognizing the strengths and needs of each child, as well as providing them with opportunities and experiences that help them grow as
Teaching a child to solve their own problems is a huge step in their development. Once a child knows right from wrong they will be able to make the right decisions for themselves. My goal as a teacher is to make sure every one of my students receives the guidance they need. Guidance Strategies Many different guidance strategies are used in early childhood education. There are both indirect and direct guidance strategies, both of which are used.
In order to become a remarkable teacher, there must be dedication to many things, one of them being passionate about how children learn. Theories are one of the determining things that influence teachers and how they approach teaching. A theory is a set of explanations used to explain how children learn (Morrison, 2009, p.113). Theorists and theories are important for many reasons: 1) theories help us understand how children learn, which helps us teach better; 2) understanding theories and how children learn helps teachers communicate better with parents / caregivers; 3) theories help teachers have a basis of how children learn which helps in evaluation of them; 4) theories help guide program development to enhance children’s learning (Morrison, 2009, p. 114). Theories not only help support teaching, they help guide teachers to become better at what they do.
This will help build a community within the classroom and help my students to learn better. I will also work on my non-verbal communication because that is a key point while working with ELs. Since they may not know the language, you have to rely on non-verbal communication to get the point across such as a pat on the shoulder or a thumbs up. Non-verbal communication will help me learn about my EL student or students. Another way this will affect my decisions I will make as a teacher is be there to help the children, learn from your coworkers because they are there to help you.
I think that it is important for teachers to teach what to do rather than just telling them what not to do. Guidance is a process learned after time and being able to make mistakes and learn from them in a supportive environment is a great opportunity for children to become socially competent. There is only so much teaching that a teacher can do before a child should learn how to solve a situation on their own. Our job as a teacher will be to teach our students right from wrong and hope that they learn to figure out it out for themselves in the future. Teachers assist children with their problems in a positive way and teach them appropriate behaviors so they will understand what is acceptable and unacceptable.

The student is there to learn what they need to know so they can become self-reliant adults. I want to be a teacher who under stands that all students have the capacity to learn. I have children of my own and though they are very different from each other as two children can be, they still love to learn what is being taught. They may learn it in different ways but they still learn and that is the important part. The nature of knowledge should be both relative and absolute.
I want to be help shape the youth of tomorrow by inculcating in them a love for learning from an early age, that will continue until they have achieve their academic, professional and personal goals. Not all students learn equally, therefore it is of vital that lessons are thought in all the ways students learn. For example if a lesson is only though for the visual learners ... ... middle of paper ... ...ing these special abilities, teachers can, for example, guide students' research, and students can, in turn, enlighten teachers about subjects in which they may not be as knowledgebale. This mutual respect for individual skills cultivates a professional academic relationship, leading to a give-and-take educational alliance. This liaison allows students to feel that they are on equal intellectual ground with their teachers, thus creating a strong academic atmosphere.
Authentic assessment is mean to assess students learning in a meaningful way, so that they will show the teacher their full knowledge because they will not realize they are being evaluated. As a teacher authentic assessment is going to give truer results, as the student will be completing the assessment through play or an environment where they are confident and comfortable. Performance assessment is designed to be representative of real tasks in the world. The students may self-evaluate students, and students are evaluated based on the knowledge they already. Performance assessment can be teacher made.
