As an educator, there is always room for reflection and growth. Being in this class has provided an opportunity for both. From my knowledge gained in this class I believe that I have become smarter and have learned how to implement different tool into my teaching as well as general life as a teacher. Of the topics discussed in this class, commitment to students, avoiding burnout and reflective practices had the biggest impact on my professional growth. In the second week of this course we discussed professionalism and our commitment to students.
This sample also show that I am not only going to my practicum setting, but as well able to work with them having a solid understanding of ways I can work with them to achieve their individual goals. • How does this sample relate to your learning in the SSW program? As a learning professional, it is required that we have a solid understanding of the issues and challenges the population we are working with are experiencing. To have done this research, it has change my perspective about funding any marginalized and under-represented populations might be facing. It has also enhanced my helping relationship, as I am able to display empathy, respect, care, warmth, active listening, and genuineness with my clients.
In this paper I will discuss the qualities that are necessary for effective teaching, supported with information from an interview with Dr. Ginny Maurer. Since the education profession is one that is ever evolving and constantly changing, it is very important for teacher to possess the qualities that are needed in order for them to be as effective as possible. One of these qualities is being able to motivate students to push themselves to learn. The able to create a passion within the student for an education is something that every teacher should be striving for during their career. In my interview with Dr. Maurer, she said that getting to know your students and making the class as interesting and engaging as possible are two ways to help motivate students toward an education.
In the long run, I feel that due to every classroom discussion and case study I have learned many things that will guide my future teaching. Overall, each aspect of teaching I have learned throughout this course will prepare me and aid me in becoming a better teacher. Teachers are a crucial factor to a child’s day at school. I have learned a array of different styles and techniques to teach students with disabilities, language difficulties, races, and ethnicities. This class along with education 200 has taught me many styles of teaching along with the growth and development of children, which will be needed in my future teaching.
For some students that may mean adapting curriculum to include di... ... middle of paper ... ...ause I have see over the past four years how I have transformed my own beliefs about teaching. I have learned from professors and cooperating teachers how to handle difficult situations, this has made me a stronger teacher in the classroom. I am able to quickly adapt lesson plans to the needs of a classroom, and know when something is not going to work by the response of my students. I have also seen changes in how I respond to students. I have learned that students really do want to learn; they just need to know that their teachers want to help them.
Also, schools should have more parent meetings where the role of teachers and their hard work are emphasized. I use this knowledge to expand my understanding of what excellence is all about in the teaching and learning field by be highly qualified and conversant in the subject matter. I should have the ability to teach different student in many learning plans. In addition to be an affective teacher, my learning would lead to more positive student achievement. In classroom, I should work hard to meet my student’s need.
So as a teacher I will have to constantly keep on learning, and I will constantly have to adapt to meet the needs of my students. I will also maintain control while letting my students learn skills needed to be successful in school and life. This will be done furthering my education and taking workshop and taking the time to listen to my students as well as myself and others around me. I want to grow and gain ideas how to reach each student and gain the steps that are needed to be a Great teacher, one that students will remember.
This way the student will have a positive reinforcement to look forward to and stop his misbehavior. I hope to become a primary grade teacher and this paper has been a real eye opener for me. I have to always consider so many factors when teaching my students at this grade level so they are able to learn the best they can. It is nice now to have this personal knowledge of the development for primary grades and this information to come back to for additional research. I believe writing this paper has given me a better understanding of the type of students I want to teach.
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.
This traditional practice of orienting the class around the teacher is one of the main principles of the essentialist philosophy. To encourage this in my classes, I w... ... middle of paper ... ...rson faces problems and should know how to handle them. Therefore, through activities, such as word problems, I can help my students build problem solving skills. Through these four philosophies, I hope to inspire my students and show them that they can achieve anything. Hopefully, I can spark an interest or a desire that will help them find happiness and success.
