The first people would be the parents. The parents would be playing the most important job in the process. They would have the option to send their children to school when they are young. The School should be prepared to give education to the children to make a difference in their lives. The teacher it is the second most important because she/he will be responsible to accommodate every student needs, goals and educate them to succeed in their lives.
I can’t even begin to explain how much fun I have; it doesn’t even feel like work. As I could go on and on about how kids make me feel, my main goal is to be able to be a motivator for all my students. Teachers are next in line to the parents as kid’s role models. I want to make a big influence on students, to be able to trust me and hopefully other teachers as they grow up. They need that extra push, especially some who may be having
I want to give myself the opportunity to become a teacher, and help students to grow academically and emotionally to become successful in society. That is why it is so important for me to become a teacher at the elementary school level. I think that if smaller children learn in a very positive and enthusiastic way, they will learn more easily and will be more open to different learning tasks in the classroom. I think that a teacher can also help all students to obtain very high self-esteem, growth and integrity. A teacher can become, in certain ways, like a parent and most importantly, a friend.
The most common and long-term place to find this support is within their family. This is why I have decided to become a teacher at the pre-school/ head start level. I feel that it is very important, during this age, for the teacher to involve the parents in the learning process as much as possible. As I continue to develop as a professional, I would like to pursue a master’s degree and eventually become the director of an integrated pre-school/ head start program. With this position, I would be able to develop programs to help the families learn skills needed to help themselves which will, in turn, help the child.
Students, when given a routine and are treated with structure, generally perform better. By instilling discipline in the classroom, I hope to provide a more stable and more effective learning environment for all. Above all, my educational philosophy in discipline focuses on consistency. I have learned through all theorists, Ms. Devito, all my other professors, and by my own experience that this is a must in the classroom. It is important to be impeccable with our word as teachers because often times, it is the only leverage that we have over the students.
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.
An Educational Philosophy If the best of us will be teachers and the rest something else, then I hope the best of us will also be students. I believe we are all students and I expect I will learn as much from my students as they will learn from me. I hope more than anything though, that my students will value the simple act of obtaining knowledge more than worrying about getting every graded detail correct. If a student cannot enjoy the learning process, they are not going to truly learn the subject content. There are certainly distinct pieces of knowledge that all students need.
Although school seems competitive in its nature because we use grades as the form of evaluation, it is my thought that competition in the classroom should be limited because this will increase better behavior and achievement in all students. Promoting the success of all students rather than promoting a competitive classroom will help each student feel that they are part of a community that wants them to do well. Another important component of my classroom management plan also includes me looking at my own biases and being aware that my own values and beliefs will inevitably appear in my teaching. It is important to me that this is monitored closely so that I am creating an environment that is fair and comfortable for all students. All young children and students want to learn about the world around them and come to school with a good amount of internal motivation.
Since I am planning to be a special education teacher, I feel like this approach could be extremely beneficial for this population of students. Since there is a strong focus on the abilities of the child rather than the things that may hold them back. This is very important when working with individuals with disabilities since you want them to feel as though they are good at things, since they have been told their whole lives that they cannot accomplish anything because of their disability. I strive to do in my classroom so that all students know that they have someone that believes in them. Also, this experience will force me to learn how to think on my feet, since I will be in a place I do not know.
Without an education, a good job is unobtainable. I intend to provide my students with the best possible education that I can provide. I want each student to acquire the insight to achieve any goal they set for themselves. I want my students to be able to have the understanding and knowledge to do well in school. I intend for them to leave my classroom with an immense enthusiasm for learning.
