An effective teacher must be knowledgeable and able to find and use resources in planning lessons to meet the curriculum.
Generally an incorporation of the practices of teaching respect and caring, and providing a stable and stimulating classroom environment in the school will promote students’ learning. An effective teacher employs these practices jointly, is well-informed of the curriculum content, and is committed to their students learning. The role of teachers is a very fundamental and powerful position because we have a lasting impact on our students. Therefore, it is most imperative to always make judgments grounded upon what is best for my students.
An effective classroom management plan will enable the students and the teacher to respect each other. It is important in order for classroom organization and for efficiency in teaching. Effective classroom management begins with the teacher. The teacher must plan well so that the students will be able to meet their learning and behavior objectives. A good lesson plan will help the students to feel a need to learn the material and will help them maintain positive behavior.
It is vital that they learn in a healthy atmosphere surrounded by professional teachers that would be able not only give them the knowledge they require, but lessons in ethics as well. An effective teacher needs to inspire and influence students through enthusiasm and motivation. This teacher knows their subject well and is kinds and respectful towards all students. An effective teacher is an innovator who uses different types of strategies, materials and techniques to accommodate different learning styles and to present learning content from different angles. This type of teacher values respects and uses students’ ideas about how to develop their own learning.
One of the reasons I want to become an educator is because I want to have a positive influence on a student’s life. I think in today’s society it’s crucial for students to feel like they have a positive role model. I have seen what a large impact teachers have made on their student’s lives. That has made me to want to strive and do the same. Another reason for choosing this profession is that I simply love working with children.
I will always provide an environment where the students feel safe, which then in turn, they can increase their learning to their maximum potential. Being proactive is about being prepared and in control, always being ready to take the next step, and to solve a problem before it arises. If rules are enforced well, the classroom will have a predictable environment, less disruptions, and encourage students to use self-control and make positive choices. Next, in order to educate effectively, I believe in building a sense of community in the classroom. If a well-established community takes place, the students will be able to have a positive relationship with each other and myself.
Having this strong connection with my students will help the child’s ambition to learn and come to class which is my goal. Showing my students how much I care about their education will also form a good relationship. I will do this by acknowledging their accomplishments as well as coming up with solutions when they fail. A Student-Student relationship is also important to me in order to have a positive environment in my classroom. I have realized that I have the power as an educator to promote good Student-Student relationships.
It is important that teachers ensure that the work of each member of the group is significant to the success of the task. Individual accountability refers to the need for each member of the team to receive feedback on his or her own efforts contribute to the achievement of the goal. Cooperative learning permits that students interact in ways that they can enhance and deepen their learning. Students can reflect on the acquired knowledge by talking with and listening to their classmates. It also increases motivation for learning because it encourages responsibility, can improve cognitive and social skills, such as academic engagement, self-esteem, attitudes toward school, and strong kinship with peers.
Motivation is the key factor in getting students involved in the learning process and in keeping them engaged at their level of academic performance (Oliver, 1995). Many researchers point out that a person's behavior is predicted by his intentions which are determined by the attitudes of his character. Desired behaviors can be influenced by increasing results. In the past, educators worked hard to find proper methods for shifting students' attention towards learning. Creative engagements can serve to improve motivation.
My motivation for teaching is giving back to the students the opportunity, motivation and understanding that has been provided to me throughout my own education. I want to help people to have better lives, to help the world to be a better place and I like children. My personal beliefs on education are that every student who comes to school could succeed in life and students has something to teach me. I am a role model to my students and I demonstrate respect, honesty, empathy, responsibility, promptness, and desire for learning. I can nurture a desire for learning in students, I feel that education should be relevant and interesting.
