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.
I will use my knowledge of real life experiences in the subject area I will teach. To me the overall purpose of education is to get win the battle with getting the students to be motivated in doing their best in school. For the students to develop an interest in a subject to learn it well and the primary source of that interest comes from the enthusiasm of the teacher. I believe that my passion for teaching will allow me to motivate my students to learn any difficult material. I will model this attitude by learning from my students in the classroom, showing that they have things to teach me.
I absolutely love this because it encourages students to be accountable for their actions. I believe that it is necessary for students to know what is and isn’t appropriate. In order to foster a sense of belonging with the families and community, I will encourage families to be very active in their students’ learning. I plan on having many experts from the community come in and share with the students whenever possible. I will also work one-on-one with my colleagues in order to be a stronger teacher.
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 think that being a teacher is a very rewarding job. Teachers should try to teach their students new things with a positive attitude, with enthusiasm and interest. Giving more attention to students of younger ages is especially important. It is a good feeling to see students become knowledgeable in all aspects and to prepare students to be successful for the good of society. I want to give myself the opportunity to become a teacher, and help students to grow academically and emotionally to become successful in society.
Having this strong connection with my students will help the child’s ambition to learn and come to class which is my goal. Showing my students how much I care about their education will also form a good relationship. I will do this by acknowledging their accomplishments as well as coming up with solutions when they fail. A Student-Student relationship is also important to me in order to have a positive environment in my classroom. I have realized that I have the power as an educator to promote good Student-Student relationships.
Those moments are what I live for, and they are priceless to me. I hope that I can continue to provide that satisfaction of learning to my future students and experience the pride and joy that the students will feel when the material finally clicks. Becoming a teacher would be a dream come true for me, and I hope that I can have the opportunity to purse this dream during my lifetime. I hope that with hard work this dream can become a reality. In essence, I want to pursue this career more than anything because I really want to inspire and shape the future generation.
This is how I feel about the purpose of education, why I want to be a teacher, what I want to do to further my career as a teacher, what my classroom will look like, and my philosophical approach to learning. I am going to work hard in completing all of the goals I have set for myself in life. I want to look back at my life and smile about how happy I am for having been an educator and how hard I have worked to touch lives of my students. I am especially looking forward to the first comment or letter that comes in from one of my students saying, “thank you for pushing me to do so well, and if it were not for you then I would not be where I am today, and I will always remember you for having made a difference in my life”.
Another goal of mine is to have the students interact in a positive way. Social interaction is very important. As students combine with peers they share knowledge and learn how to solve problems. In the real-world, this what will happen. Whenever I can, I li... ... middle of paper ... ...uable life lessons as well as traditional ones.
I want to be a motivator to them like some of my teachers were to me. I want them to follow their dreams and do what makes them happy, not let anyone or anything stop them from doing so. I want my students to know they can create the life they want to have. I have had a lot of motivating teachers that influenced me to decide I wanted to become a teacher. I want to be that teacher for my students.
