make detailed plans of everything that is going to occur in my classroom. To me, being an intentional teacher will allow more instructional time, which in turn will provide my students with more learning opportunities (Liston, 2016b). Because I understand that each child learns differently, I will use Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory so that I may be able to provide the appropriate learning materials for my each of my students so that they may be able to learn according to their personal way of learning. I will use Vygotsky’s ZPD when teaching my students new learning material. This will allow my students time to understand the newly acquired concepts and skills so that overtime, they will eventually understand it on their own. Lastly, in my classroom I will also use Vygotsky’s scaffolding method. By using the strategy of scaffolding with my students, I will be able to provide temporary support when my students need it. Scaffolding will also allow each student to improve on their skills without causing them to become frustration along with being discouraged when doing so (Liston, 2016b). IV. Teacher-Learner Relationships The relationship between the teacher and the students in the classroom is extremely important. First off, teachers and students have different roles within the classroom. The teachers’ main role is to teach the students while being open-minded to their students’ thoughts and answering while being considerate of their feelings. The students in the classroom have the role to learn and to actively participate on a daily bases. However, regardless of their roles, the relationship between the two should be both positive and respectful.

Another way that I will ensure that parents are involved in their child’s education is to provide open-communication between them and myself. By communicating with parents, I will be able to help them better understand what their child is doing in class as well as allow them to discuss any concerns that they may have (Liston, 2016b). VII. Conclusion Education cannot be defined as having only one purpose. The purpose of education is to provide academic instruction as well as develop well-rounded students so that they can take with them into the world what they have learned. Oftentimes, educational learning can be established through personal experiences that one is presented with. However, sometimes, educational learning can be established through training and conditioning. Either way, education can be used for the rest of one’s life.
