Students will look up to you as the teacher to keep the steady beat. An example of keeping the steady beat is playing an instrumental version of the song while teaching the lyrics. In kindergarten and first grade music is a big part of the schoo... ... middle of paper ... ... at this age level that are age appropriate and song that kids will enjoy. It will be my job to convince my students that music is cool, and when creating songs not include much movement. As a future educator it will be difficult to include music into the daily classroom curriculum but with the variety of methods it should be easier.
I hope that after I graduate and become a teacher that I will be someone’s role model or someone a student can come and talk to when they may have a problem and can trust in. As an educator I want to motivate my students to learn. I hope to build their confidence and self-esteem to overcome fears of failure and strive to reach their goals and dreams. There are many reasons why I want to become a teacher, but the main reason would be that I love the feeling of helping someone be the best person they can be. When I think that I would have a part in this process it makes all my efforts worth everything.
Having a positive influence in a student’s life is one of the most important tools they will use for the rest of their lives. I have seen the difference the teachers can make, and what I can do, it is too important to just walk away from. I may not be able... to help everyone but, t... ... middle of paper ... ...sated. This will give us all hope, and would show my kids that if I can do it, so can they; it would allow me to have a chance to improve not just my life, but my family’s and those students, which I would be able to help on a higher level. This is not just for me, but for my family, and all of the students that look up to me.
As you are filling these different roles in your classroom, you also have to maintain control. I believe that education is important because as a society we need to learn and grow from what we know. Education is there to teach us about the past and prepare us for the future, which is why education is a leading and important part of our lives. As a Health and Physical education teacher, I plan to be a role model for every student that I teach. Not only do I want to be a role model for my students but also I want to be an inspiration.
So I want to be able to be a part of a childcare or to volunteer in schools to have more experience about teaching and interacting with the students. I want to keep loving what I do and not find it as a job that I have to do but something that I enjoy doing. I believe the way I can still learn and grow as a professional is by going to workshops and becoming friend with my fellow teachers and come together to make a better place for our student. To gather and share ideas among each other; we all teachers have one focus which is our students and they should always come first.
District board members fight for extracurricular programs because they know that not only do the kids enjoy them but it also gives them the chance to branch out and do something fun while also getting a good education. The Troy community has supported our district enough that Troy Middle School and Troy Buchanan High School get to have a phenomenal music program that allows kids to express themselves with music. Someone who I think deserves to be in the Lincoln county hall of fame is Meghan Pieper. Meghan has not only inspired many young adults but to this day teaches kids something that most children do not get, that is, music. Meghan was in eighth grade when she realized singing was her true passion.
Being an idealistic person, I want to be so much for my students; a teacher that shows caring, compassion, a helper with their problems, and a positive role model. After my students leave my classroom, I want them to know more than just a few vocabulary words that they memorized for a test. I want to provide my students with a solid foundation that they can continue to build upon long after they have left my classroom. I never want my students to later struggle to fill in the gaps of their education because I was an inadequate teacher. Above all else, I want to pass on to my students my love and joy for learning, and help them to see that education is the key to their future endeavors.
My philosophy of education Throughout our school years we are told to decide what we want to do with our lives. I have had a hard time deciding on the right career choice for myself. During my field placement I learned that I really want to make a difference in children’s lives. The enjoyment that one gets out of seeing the looks on their students faces is rewarding. I enjoyed working with the students and now I know that becoming a teacher is for me.
The students I teach will learn to respect their teacher, themselves, and each other and will learn to help strengthen the learning experience of their peers whenever possible. As I said before, my objective is to teach students how to learn subject matter, therefore their successes will extend much further than my classroom. As teachers we must realize our influence exceeds the boundaries of our class and we must take on roles that aren’t generally defined in our job description. Teaching is like music, consisting of a combination of various parts that in the end should put smiles on the faces or send chills up the spines of those who experience it.
VH1 has also done research, and found that a “students involvement in their school music program is crucial to a complete education. Musical Study, develops critical thinking and self discipline skill, improves a child’s early cognitive development, basic math and reading abilities, self-esteem, SAT scores, ability to work in teams, spatial reasoning skills, and school attendance.” Another benefit of music education is the “success in school.” Having success in school directly leads to having success in society. If you learn the disciplines of music, I believe it will transfer over to other areas of your life such as school. For me, learning to play guitar, and the discipline of having to practice critical thinking, has really helped me in my study habits. MENC and the College-Bound Seniors National Report also say that “Student with coursework/experience in music performance and music appreciation scored higher on the SAT.” “57 points higher on the verbal and 41 points higher on the math.” Physician and Bio... ... middle of paper ... ... just how, in many ways music is benefiting his life.
