My overall goal as a teacher is to do my best to ensure that every student is prepared for the next grade level and beyond. As I said earlier, every student has something different to offer the classroom, but the classroom should have only one thing to offer each student; success. Success doesn’t just meaning receiving good grades though. Success could be improving behavior in the classroom or overcoming a social problem. Some students will have no problem with achieving this success, but for others it will be a real struggle.
Also, many kindergarten teachers have assistants to help them. Not that I’ relying on that, but that would help keep control of the classroom as well. ... ... middle of paper ... ...dergartener won’t learn very much if you stand in front of the room and lecture. You ned to work with the students personally, that way they grasp what you are teaching. You need to become a leader when you’re working with a room full of young students.
I don’t want to be one of those ordinary teachers; I want to become an exceptional teacher. I want to be the teacher that everyone values. I understand that it will take a lot of hard work to become this type of teacher, but I’m willing to do so. I hope to be a positive influence on my students. I want to be able to motivate my students, and give them a full opportunity to learn.
Although society may be resistant, I must help students become self-determining people who stand up for what is right, and aren’t afraid of going against the status quo. As the movie shows, sometimes the fate of teachers who do this is grim. Yet, I still believe that it is a teacher’s duty to give students the resources to be their own people. True change in this world can only happen if teachers are fostering a classroom of personal growth and acceptance. I am focused on making sure I urge my future students to leave their mark and seize the day.
After reading the section “Philosophies of Education,” I believe that learning, learners, and teaching needs to to be interactive, that students learn best when their lessons are active, challenging and relevant in their world and that they learn through experience. Teaching would include less textbooks, more hands-on activities and the use of technology in the classroom. To be an effective teacher, we need to understand how children learn and realize that not all will fit into one mold and we shouldn 't expect them to either, they need to think for themselves and draw their own conclusions. Some teaching strategies may work great for one student in the classroom yet may not work for all. Therefore, our teaching and the curriculum used
I believe teachers should serve as role models and be the center of a classroom. In order to maintain that students stay on task and are all on the same page, the teacher needs to serve as a guide and direct the students. I do not believe that students learn best in a textbook based setting, but that textbooks are important when referencing material. I believe all students learn differently and look for new ideas or ways to teach lessons and concepts, so that my students can learn as effectively as possible. I also believe that a teacher teaches much more than the subject.
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.
While it is important for teachers to provide for students and service them, students must also be responsible for their own learning as much as possible. Essentially, the teacher and student must reciprocate their own understanding in order to provide the best education opportunity. The teacher should present the material in a way that is both engaging and comprehensible, and well as provide assistance whenever appropriate. On the other side of this, the student should take their learning into their own hands and become self-directed learners. This leads to another belief of mine: that it is the goal of the teacher... ... middle of paper ... ...he school only has one perspective on the needs of a student at any given time.
While I know I probably will not make a difference to all my students, my goal is to make a great impact on at least one of them. My next goal is to help them grow and allow them to reach their greatest potential in and outside of my classroom. There is always room for growth. My goal is to teach my students something, no matter how big or small it may be. I am a teacher and teaching my students is my job.
As a teacher, I hope to instill this appetite for knowledge in secondary students. They are, after all, the future leaders of the world, and what better place to expand the minds of the generations to come than here in Appalachia where education programs, especially the sciences, which I plan to teach, are poorly funded and children’s dreams often fall by the wayside under the weight of everyday life. I don’t want to control the way my students think, but to encourage them to think in ways different than the traditional, to challenge their horizons. As I stated above, I don’t believe that children are being challenged enough. I believe that students rise to meet the reasonable expectations set before them.
