I think in a teacher, that’s a great aspect of having because it makes students feel more comfortable and keeps students more engaged in class with activities and lessons. My educational philosophy contains many things: of course, to get an education, to be active in learning, get feedback on students, steady learning environment, and a student-teacher emotional connection. I would really like my students to be engaged because it shows me if they 're learning. Somehow I would like to get feedback from my students because I would be able to understand where they are at with the learning process. Moreover, I would love that student-teacher emotional connection because I want to be able to relate somehow to my students or just even understand what they been thru in their lives.
I want to use different methods to stimulate all of their senses. By varying these methods, the student receives an encouraging way to retain what they learn. By being positive with the students will encourage them to want to learn. I want the children to consider me a positive leader in their lives, promoting fun in learning. They need to know that I really care.
I not only want them to succeed in subjects but also grow as individuals. I plan to use the progressivism approach in my classroom because I believe that hands on education in a very effective way of learning. It helps students to get a first hand experience to see and feel what it is they are learning. I also think that working with groups in their classroom is very beneficial to students. By interacting with their peers they will learn how to share their ideas, accept others points of view and learn how to develop relationships , which is a very important part of life that will help them to succeed in their careers.
A child's natural curiosity can be a powerful tool used to direct his/her learning. My classroom will be student-centered. I will be a skilled facilitator that is knowledgeable, capable and effective in the management of a classroom. My lessons must address all my students learning needs. I understand why an effective teacher must be a resourceful curriculum planner.
One advantage is that stay at home moms are able to be involved more than working moms, which helps their child in several educational areas. In a study done by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory, students with involved parents are more likely to earn higher grades, pass classes, attend school regularly, have better social skills, and go on to postsecondary education. Another benefit is that stay at home moms have more time to support their children in extracurricular activities. Working moms may not always be able to take time off, and therefore can’t watch and support their kids in sports, clubs, and concerts like stay at home moms can. Thirdly, students with a stay at home mother may be more likely to have better behavior in school.
This is beneficial to your class, because it gives them more instructional materials so they can learn. It also gives you different ways to teach the material. Professional development helps teachers grow and when teachers grow students grow and develop too. At professional development teachers get to learn new skills and new resources to use in the classroom. Teachers can learn new skills to use in the classroom like teaching practices, different ways to assess, and classroom management.
Being a reflective practitioner means that an educator must take time to think about their processes in the classroom and the outcome of their efforts and find ways to not only progress but to improve upon current their methods. This helps to improve the quality of education for all students and allows educators to develop into more effective educators. Self-reflection and sharing ideas and concepts with fellow educators make for a more well-rounded and effective teacher. I personally like to work with other educators sharing ideas and insights. I learn from others as well as share my ideas with my peers.
An effective classroom management is essential for students to feel comfortable and engaged in learning. Teachers should be aware of the environment they are surrounding the students in, where they have to be encouraged to learn and not get bored. Having an organized classroom is one of the most important things to have an effective instruction by which teachers will feel comfortable in moving around the classroom and monitor the students. Even students should be able to move in the classroom easily and avoid having fights with their classmates. Another effective strategy is time management.
I want to restore the positive energy and ambition that some students have lost in education. I want students in my classroom to thirst for new knowledge and have a productive and enjoyable time doing so. I personally believe that students, at all age levels, do their best work, and get more involved, when they are educated in an interesting, creative, and hands-on environment. My aspect towards which philosophies to use in education is eclectic. I predominately agree with the Progessivist theory because it is student centered and perceives students as individuals.
I am interested in incorporating additional activities that will help students focus on cross-curricular objectives while in my class. I would also love to work one on one with different teachers who will help me gain experience and knowledge. My concerns include learning to adapt cross-curricular lesson plan development while adapting instruction to specific student needs. I am also concerned with adapting to their behavior in the modern times, the management required to keep students focused on the task at hand feels impossible sometimes. An administrator must believe that each individual in the school - staff or student - can achieve great things, and they expect no less.
