In wanting to change the lives of the next generation it is important to be competent, which is a pattern of effective adaptation to the children’s environment, being friendly, purposeful, achievement oriented, all while being involved in helping change the lives of children for the better. In this essay I will outline the student’s ability to learn, the teachers expectations, student’s social ecology theory, cultural diversity instruction, and curriculum for all learners. Student’s Ability to Learn It is an educator’s job to teach students the basics of how we learn and why we learn to build success in children. Every teacher has their own way in how they teach the children in their classes. Most teachers will have new student year after year, unless they get held back.
From my experience I recognize that teaching children is unique and therefore it is necessary that as teachers we should be flexible and provide opportunities for them to expand their skills, and interests, about themselves and their future. My conviction and personal thoughts are based mainly on supporting the children by respecting and recognizing the strengths and needs of each child, as well as providing them with opportunities and experiences that help them grow as

All familes deserve to be treated equal in the classroom. This article was very enjoyable for me, I felt like I learned a lot about how to teach children about race, gender, and sexual ornination. This article also opened my eyes up to just how important it is to teach children about these subjects at a young age.
Personally, I believe that good teachers are made from the following: knowledge of skills of all aspects of learning and child development, patience, and a desire to see a change in the way the world views education. Not only that, but a teacher must know how to arouse the students’ cognitive, social/emotional, and physical mind’s needs. Lastly, a teacher must be dedicated to his/her job, and know that whatever the outcome, at the end of the school year, they’ve done their best to relay their knowledge onto the children. It takes a lot to be a teacher, and it is hard, but I believe those who are called to it, can be extraordinary and exemplary individuals that can change a child’s life. While some would dare to differ, I believe young children are the most difficult to teach.
Teachers assist children with their problems in a positive way and teach them appropriate behaviors so they will understand what is acceptable and unacceptable. I believe that guidance is the part of early childhood education that helps a child develop and mold as a socially competent child. Guidance Strategies In my classroom I plan to have positive guidance strategies to help children develop self-control, assist them in making the right decisions, and encourage them to take responsibilities for their actions. An indirect form of guidance that I plan to apply in my classroom is establishing a positive classroom environment.

Knowing and teaching children well first requires knowing myself well. As a teacher I am a gatekeeper, and therefore I have an immense impact on students’ futures. This can be on a lesser scale such as denying a student the chance to research their own answer, or on a higher scale such as unintentionally perpetuating racial or gender inequalities. Educators must be devoted to teaching every child. This is why before stepping foot into a... ... middle of paper ... ...how best to educate the student with critical pedagogy, teachers must recognize that there are multiple learning styles.
I have a vision of a world where people learn to respect, accept, and embrace the differences between us, as the core of what makes life so fascinating. Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. My role as a teacher is to give children the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. To accomplish this goal, I will teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. I will present curriculum that involves the interests of the children and makes learning relevant to life.
As well as encouraging children to be in control of their own interests and learning (Every child matters, 2004). Allen and Whalley (2010) adopt Whalley, Allen and Wilson’s (2008) notion that the role of the practitioner is extremely significant and address the idea that effective pedagogy is about improving outcomes for children’s learning. Therefore in order to provide an effective provision for children to learn and grow in practitioners must be able to maintain positive interactions with the children. Allen and Whalley (2009) adopt Curtis and O’Hagan’s (2009, p. 156) concept that theorists such as Bruner and Vygotsky have influenced pedagogy by placing “emphasis upon the importance of the adult in facilitating children’s learning”. This promotes children’s learning.
One of my hopes as an education major student is for students to feel the love in my future classroom. I think each child is unique, and each child deserves educational opportunities. I believe a teacher is a profession that requires patience, knowledge, communication skill, and social skill. The teacher also needs to enjoy the interaction with children, and be able to show them the importance of education and respecting and caring for others. Other professional responsibilities include providing several different ways to present the lesson to cover each student’s most beneficial learning style.
When faced with classroom management and behaviors teachers should encourage and help children when needed. There are numerous techniques and skill to help teachers manage challenging behaviors. Counselling approaches are useful in order to have a better understanding of why a child behaves in a certain manner, teacher can use it to help children and their family. The learning outcomes are practical as I am able to incorporate them in my personal and professional life.
