In the future I would love to pursue my aspiration of travelling to teach young children as I have an interest in furthering my knowledge to make me a better person as well as the children. I believe that children are our future and each child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. Teaching is an important and honourable occupation that demands commitment and I am determined to do this. There are miracles, learning, healing, laughter, sharing and love every day in classrooms all around the world. A teacher has the opportunity to impact on young students’ lives in a positive way and in my opinion this is a huge privilege that shouldn’t be taken lightly which is why I know it is a career I will be fully committed to in the future as every child matters and I want to be able to give them the push start with they need in life.
My Philosophy of Education Becoming a teacher has always been one of my goals in life. What motivates me to become a teacher is that I love to help and teach children new things in life. I try to do this in a very unique way. I love to see kids happy. I think that being a teacher is a very rewarding job.
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. I hope that my students leave my class with lots of new information , positive attitudes about learning, confidence and an open mind. ... ... middle of paper ... ...gh teaching and getting a better perceptive on children will make my life a fulfilled one because I will have been blessed by God in being part of a child’s life in a positive way. I want to continue to learn how to be an effective teacher and become an encouraging figure for a child’s life. Teaching is more than instructing or giving information to students.
Motivation is what drives us to do the things that we do. It is something that needs to be cultivated in the classroom from the beginning of the year. The teacher needs to understand how each individual child is motivated and what peaks their interest. I will praise the students and make them feel good about themselves. I want each student to know that I care about them and want to do all I can to help them learn and grow.
I feel that all teachers should possess the desire to devote their hard work and efforts to their students’ educational success. I view teaching as not only one of the most respected careers, but also as one in which the rewards are great and many opportunities to touch the lives of students are provided. I am a proponent of the educational philosophy of Progressivism. I agree that experience is a very important component of problem solving. I feel that problem solving is a well-desired skill for all children to learn because it will help them throughout their whole lives.
When becoming a teacher, there are so many motivations one can have. My number one motivator is the students. I want to do everything in my power to make them enjoy school, learning and be happy with themselves. Another reason I want to be a teacher is how comfortable I feel around kids and how happy they make me. I can’t even begin to explain how much fun I have; it doesn’t even feel like work.
Many reasons pop into my head, yet only a few really explain my desire to teach. I want to be a teacher not just because of the benefits of the educator’s lifestyle, but also because of the blessed joy of working with children, the fact I will continue to grow and learn, and the opportunity to make a positive impact on a child. First, the obvious reasons why so many people go into the field of education definitely had a minor influence on my decision. I have heard my mom say it repeatedly – “Teaching is the perfect job if you want to raise a family”. For me, I view raising a family as one of the most important duties God has given me.
Becoming a successful teacher is a goal I have set for myself. Teaching has always been something I have wanted to do because of my influences throughout my life. When I become a teacher I hope to accomplish many things with my future students. By the time I finish teaching I hope to leave a legacy, and hopefully inspire other students to become teachers as well. Why I want to teach I want to become a teacher because I want to help children in the best way possible.
I am so appreciative of them, and I want to do for other students what many of my teachers have done for me. That is why, after I obtain, both, my Bachelor and Master degrees, I plan to enter the teaching profession. Jaime Escalante, a great educator, once said, “The teacher gives us the desire to learn, the desire to be Somebody.” As a teacher, my goal will be to show students that each of them can be whatever they want to be, and not only are they capable of being good at what they do, they can be the best. To reach this goal, I must be an effective teacher, which I believe can best be accomplished by teaching in a way that is comfortable for me. Therefore, I will not base my classroom around one single philosophy; I am going to seek comfort by utilizing certain aspects of different educational philosophies, namely essentialism, existentialism, progressivism, and social reconstructionism.
According to our textbook Student Teaching, “Self -knowledge should precede trying to impart knowledge to others.” All of my beliefs and values help to shape who I am and what my educational philosophy consists of. Since I value learning I believe teaching is an important job. I am constantly learning myself therefore I am modeling the importance of education to my students. I value imagination and exploration. Therefore I provide many hands on activities that allow the children to explore and to use their imagination In summary, one of my hopes and goals as an educator is foster a love of learning in all of my students.
