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.
My personal conclusion to this question is a resounding YES. It is an educator’s philosophy on teaching that makes the difference. Up to this point in life, I’ve simply been a student of this world, but as I move forward in life I aspire to cross the line that all before me have crossed to become educators. How will I achieve this? More importantly, will my personal philosophy elevate me to become an inspiring and encouraging teacher?
The teacher it is the second most important because she will be responsible to accommodate every student needs, goals and educate them to succeed in their lives. Students should know why education it is important in their future, if they already know they would be able to keep their education until they have achieved their goals. It is important for the students to have the desire of going school, this will help them to learn and enjoy the school. They would enjoy school when they have found something interesting or something that they can focus on something that they really like to do. If they don’t want to study, they would never find a reason to stay... ... middle of paper ... ...m should be including the subjects where the students should know at their own stage of development.
“This trivializes not only the difficulties many real students must overcome, but also the hard-earned skill and tireless effort real teachers must use to help those students succeed” (Moore). It is as if every trouble the students ever had in the movie, could simply be erased by a quick inspirational chat. Real students are now being trumped to blame the teacher for their undesirable outcome, instead of their intrinsic capabilities and efforts (Ricket). Teachers do not need to forfeit their life for their students, instead they need to provide them with the love and attention that is essential in order for them to become the successful individuals they should strive to
Choosing the teaching profession is not for the faint of heart and is not a decision that should be made lightly. Being a teacher is a selfless profession. A person has to have a calling to teach and the desire to improve upon the education system. I have made a choice to be a teacher and by doing so I have chosen to make a difference in children’s lives. I want to be a teacher who provides my students a good foundation at the start of their educational journey.
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.
My Educational Philosophy When I become a teacher I will strive to better my student’s life not only intellectually, but also socially and emotionally. I will strive to learn from them as much as I teach them; in hopes to become a better teacher to my future pupils. I was inspired to do this by a special teacher who is also my ideal teacher. Mr. Bishop, my junior high teacher, was a big role model to me; he is a teacher whom I model myself after. He is a teacher who always had an answer to everything.
As laws and teaching methods are constantly being renewed it is essential that teachers realise they will need to update their knowledge. "All of life is education and everybody is a teacher and everybody is forever a pupil." Maslow AH (1970) Motivation and Personality (2nd edition) New York Harper and Row Lesson plans are one of the most valuable tools a teacher have, however they are rendered useless without a suitable evaluation by both the teacher and the learners’. With completed evaluations this ensures the teacher is adapting to the learners needs. A teacher should record their own evaluation as well as that of their learners as soon as possible after the lesson has finished and record the changes they think necessary in order to improve the lesson while it is still fresh in their mind.
I believe everyone is capable of learning given the proper support and tools for success. I believe education can inspire greatness. I believe education can change the world. I want to be a teacher because I want to be part of that change. I want to be that one person who believed in my students, the one who told them to dare to dream, and the one who showed them how to persevere and claim the victory.
When looking at the different philosophies of education I realized that I do not want to just be a Progressivist, I also want to be a Behaviorist and an essentialist. This is due to the fact that I like different aspects of each philosophy, and I believe if I could tie them all together then I would have a successful classroom.
