My main goal as a teacher is primarily to provide students with the knowledge that will help them further excel in their everyday lives, but also to teach students to apply the knowledge they gained and take advantage of opportunities that will enrich their lives. Many times, students learn better when they feel a certain subject is relevant in their lives. I feel that it is important to have a curriculum that is based on the student’s interest, experience and capabilities. Having a textbook integrated in a curriculum is important, but a student will have a better understanding of the subject area when experience is involved. Although there are many different techniques to education, I feel that the philosophy of progressivism and essentialism best fits my style and belief of teaching.

There are many things to consider in order to keep improving my skills for the benefit of my learners, and these could be summarized in the following points: • To be more careful with the materials I use and check them for any printing mistakes. • To include more activities that involve moving around the class which are suitable for kinetic learners. • To not model each word, but only the ones the learners may find problems with.

My Philosophy of Education Do you know your ABC’s, 123's, or how to read? If so, give thanks to the teachers you have had and Horace Mann for establishing what we now know as elementary schools, where the preceding is learned. Without my teachers, this paper would not be possible and it is a known fact that good teachers are few and far between. I hope to be an exceptional teacher that will not only influence the lives of my students but also be one that is willing to learn from my students. Times have changed and so has education.
All I can do is share my own opinions and beliefs on qualities that I feel make a great teacher. As teachers we have an overwhelming responsibility to prepare students for the rest of their lives. When they leave high school or college they should be trained to meet the challenges, and be prepared to handle any number of new and unusual situations. I feel that school puts too much emphasis on what some may consider to be core subjects. The essentialism approach to teaching is the most common, however I feel it is not the most effective way to prepare students for the real world.
For example, I can ask students to listen to or read certain materials in their L1 to later produce an essay or an oral report in English. Brainstorming tasks or discussion of new vocabulary in EFL contexts can also happen in L1 if students wish to use it. In other words, L1 provides scaffolding to learners to help them deal with challenging tasks. It also gives them access to more materials and ideas for their work. Therefore, I strive to use it as a resource instead of dismissing
The students should also be introduced to different kinds of technologies to help increase certain skills for reading and writing and to increase their desire and ability to learn. The classroom should have an order to the way things are prepared and taught. I want to express to my students that almost anything can be made fun and creative as long as the outlook is a positive one and not set to one type of standard. Not everything can be categorized the same way and dealt with in the same manner. Behaviorism would be used to set a strong foundation for teachers themselves and students as a way to form individual discipline by using rules and guidelines in the classroom and outside the classroom.
This will help build a community within the classroom and help my students to learn better. I will also work on my non-verbal communication because that is a key point while working with ELs. Since they may not know the language, you have to rely on non-verbal communication to get the point across such as a pat on the shoulder or a thumbs up. Non-verbal communication will help me learn about my EL student or students. Another way this will affect my decisions I will make as a teacher is be there to help the children, learn from your coworkers because they are there to help you.
This essay will also develop from the following components that methods and techniques are important to encourage tactical instructional strategies. These components are comprehensible input, feedback that is on-going, specific and immediate, grouping structures and techniques, building background and vocabulary development along with student engagement. Teaching students a language that is foreign can really be challenging for students as well as for the teachers. The dynamic rule for implementing instructing in a diverse class to English-learners is to use resourceful life skills such as diligence, hard work and patience. There are also methods that are involved in teaching English as a second language that can be creative for the teacher, yet beneficial to the student.
I would like for my instruction and curriculum to be flexible with the different learning styles of my students, so they are all comfortable with the instruction and curriculum. I want my classroom to be a place where my students can develop and gain knowledge, so they will be better prepared for their future jobs or careers. I would also like for my classroom to be an environment in which my students can learn without interruptions and disruptive behavior.

One of my expectations will be that if the teacher is still talking after the bell rings, students must show respect to the teacher by remaining in their seats and listening to what she has to say .
