Great teachers empathize with kids, respect them, and believe that each one has something special that can be built upon. "- Ann Lieberman. As an aspiring teacher this quote promotes the ambition of mine, as my ultimate goal is to work with child and to become a primary teacher. I very much enjoy being around children and would love to be able to teach them valuable life lessons during their time in primary school in addition to the content of the national curriculum. This will help them grow emotionally and mentally into mature young people and it is this that I want to be a part of.
I not only want them to succeed in subjects but also grow as individuals. I plan to use the progressivism approach in my classroom because I believe that hands on education in a very effective way of learning. It helps students to get a first hand experience to see and feel what it is they are learning. I also think that working with groups in their classroom is very beneficial to students. By interacting with their peers they will learn how to share their ideas, accept others points of view and learn how to develop relationships , which is a very important part of life that will help them to succeed in their careers.
According to our textbook Student Teaching, “Self -knowledge should precede trying to impart knowledge to others.” All of my beliefs and values help to shape who I am and what my educational philosophy consists of. Since I value learning I believe teaching is an important job. I am constantly learning myself therefore I am modeling the importance of education to my students. I value imagination and exploration. Therefore I provide many hands on activities that allow the children to explore and to use their imagination In summary, one of my hopes and goals as an educator is foster a love of learning in all of my students.
Abstract The main goal of education is to prepare individuals to be contributing citizens of our society and to help them reach their true potential. Education provides the foundation that enables students to be successful lifelong learners that thrive in society. While schools are the catalyst for the dissemination of education, it is a successful partnership between schools, government family and community that ensures the ultimate success of education. A clear focus on educating all students despite their diverse needs and differentiated instruction are essential. Teachers serve as facilitators who guide students in the learning process.
An effective teacher not only succeeds at helping all students learn, but increases learning for all students as well. Effective teachers possess three main characteristics or qualities. First, an effective teacher will know how to motivate his/her students. Second, an effective teacher will carefully plan a lesson, implement that lesson plan, and test students’ knowledge on that lesson by using essential teaching skills. Third, an effective teacher will use a variety of strategies in hopes of fulfilling all students learning needs.
I feel that teachers that have stable and healthy relationships with their students are the most successful. Throughout my student teaching experiences I have genuinely strived to be respectful towards all my students and each of their differing learning behaviors. All students learn at different paces, and work better with some learning styles rather than others. This does not mean that students should be left behind because an educator prefers certain learning styles over one another. A good teacher attempts to you all types of learning styles in order to reach out to all types of learners.
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.
It is so important for me to find the way my students learn best and utilize their learning style in my classroom. I also always show my students how great their potential is and constantly motivate them to always do their best. I am unique from other teachers because I am
The essential goal of education is to give children the knowledge and means to entire the workforce and achieve success (Carmichael, 2009). It is important as teachers that we welcome the diverse needs of all students. While it is fundamental that teachers are well-informed on the content they are teaching and are responsible to guide student learning, there is much more to emerging student learning. To develop students’ education, schools should provide a structure of classroom communities conductive to learning. School environments must be respectful, caring, stable, and stimulating atmospheres in order to enhance the learning environment.
It must be admitted that, there are not only the standards-based teachers but also incredibly giving educators, who create open environments where students can deepen their inquiries, where child’s intellectual, emotional, social and moral potentials are carefully cultivated and guided. More specifically, the role and the mission of the real teacher are to positively inspire the students. Personally I have never thought that the greatest teacher is the one who can become the real student, in other words - transformative. I guess this is the window into becoming a real teacher. As a teacher, my impact can be measured in the transformation of my students as they transform and redefine me.
