If a teacher meaningfully reflects on their practices they will create lessons to better impact students. According to Carol Ann Tomlinson (2003), “Teacher reflection inevitably attends directly to students ' need for affirmation, contribution, power, purpose, and challenge.” Each time a teacher reflects on their work, they empower their students to learn more. Students recognize their teacher’s reflection and mimic their behavior. I feel like learning about reflection impacted me most because it showed me that I should reflect on the good and the bad. Everything that I teach should be reflected on.
I know that if we disobey God and not lead a life that he wants us to that we will end up in purgatory or maybe hell. We can be with God if we confess our sins and try to lead a good life. In chapter twenty-one it tells us that sin must be avoided. Everyone sins everyday but to try and avoid it you must not sin allot otherwise you will get in a bad habit and sin even more. But when we do sin we need to pray to God so that he can forgive us and to also go to confession so our soul isn't crowed with sin and also so that we can share in God's life in heaven.
When a king was upset he would often take a violent path. God, on the other hand, chose to send someone kind and loving to help us rather than to hurt us. This proves that God is and was genuinely concerned for us, and wanted to see us prosper. “ Now that the common savior of all has died on our behalf, we who believe in Christ no longer die” (Athanasius 21). God wants us to have faith in Him, He wants us to live forever with Him.
What Dr. Rogers identified was the fact that we know what decision we want to make however we seek validation/acceptance from others. This what is known as prizing: seeking quality acceptance from others. As a result, we begin to contemplate and debate over every little decision in our lives therefore decreasing our confidence to make decisions on our own. Rogers practices enables his clients the ability to empower and uplift themselves in order to increase their self awareness. This is the type of influence that teachers, mentors, and parents can have over individuals by positive reassurance and not just telling people what to do.
Teaching is a rewarding occupation. An occupation where changing the lives of students and adults around you, Teaching your knowledge to others in a way that is knowledge changes over as persuasive and faultless, it’s an amazing thing tool all in itself. This is achievable when educators are dedicated, conversant, and ardent. Simultaneously teachers have to be teachers because he or she wants to become one and not because it’s a job or they were forced to do. Teaching is a very challenging job.
I love children, and just knowing that as a teacher I could make a difference in someone's life means so much to me. Every student is different. Different in how fast or slow they perceive information, comprehend and interpret concepts, and develop problem-solving skills. I agree with Rousseau?s belief that a child will not learn until they are ready. As a teacher, I will work with each student based on their needs and try to present information in a way that is effective to them all.
Classroom management, the scariest aspect of teaching in the eyes of many teachers; yet I feel prepared and excited to embark on this journey and test my theories in a real classroom. Classroom managements means the way in which a classroom is set up; including, but not limited to, the physical set-up, the rules and guidelines, the teacher personality, and the consequences of rule breaking or misbehavior. In my opinion, the classroom is meant to be fun but have very specific strong guidelines that have consequences when those lines are crossed. My personality is an odd mixture of strict and easy going. I know how to have a good time, but I also expect rules to be followed.
Jesus came to serve a people considerably inferior to Himself as a light to dispel darkness. The Bible tells us that we do not have to live as slaves but as sons of God and heirs to the Father's kingdom. This simply means that despite our undeserving we may turn... ... middle of paper ... ...liever now has assurance that his every sin will be forgiven dependent not on the sacrifice of an animal but on sincere repentance. God loves His people and has provided them with a way by which they can be cleansed and sanctified, making them acceptable to him. The new covenant, therefore, leads to a desire to do what is right.
When we do, it may feel hard at first because our carnal man doesn’t want to give a sacrifice. As we persevere, we will break into a realm of peace that passes all understanding as we subject that carnal nature to God. The point is God wants that outer shell to break open. Sometimes that outer shell includes pride, hurts and wounding, etc. Prayer will break through to the core of our being and we will become a wellspring of peace.
Once you can get past the hatred, sorrow, and pain you open your soul up for spiritual directions in areas that you were not aware that were there before. This allows you to become a better person when you can give a precious gift that your enemy never expected. Frankl wrote that “ The way in which a man accepts his fate and all that suffering it entails the way in which he takes up his cross, gives him ample opportunity –even under the most difficult circumstances to add deeper meaning to his life (CITE). Frankl understood that suffering does not always have to be negative but it is in the way we take in our suffering and use it to strengthen us. Sometimes that gift of forgiveness can change the route your enemy was following in life.
