It is important to decide how to teach students in a manner that is useful in order to find ways to better improve the quality of education in the classroom both in the present and the future. One of the areas or practice that I think needs researching includes obtaining reliable and valid predictors of future student achievement which reflects an accurate measure of change over time. With this, I can revise my lesson plans and classroom curriculum accordingly and move along with student achievement as it progresses locally as well as across the country. I can also study the revisions made to standards and practices as well as study new legislation which directly affects student performance (such as revisions to laws like No Child Left Behind).
Inspired by the formative evaluation for this project, I can see myself doing more formative evaluations. I enjoy trying to find the best way to teach students each objective or topic. If I can not only find new ways of teaching, but also document the success of those teaching methods through research, I will be able to impact more students than those in my classroom. In short, I finally feel like a real teacher. I not only know what is effective but why it is effective and the research that proves it is effective.
This learning and teaching process has greatly shaped and influenced my delivery methods and has vastly improved and strengthened my capabilities as an instructor. I believe the duty of an instructor is not limited to the effective delivery of the course material. An instructor must take a holistic approach in his classroom by inspiring and encouraging students to greater heights in order to achieve their full potentials. The instructor must help cultivate a good study habit and where applicable the instructor must inspire life lessons such as work ethics, confidence, independence and discipline. This information passed along to the students in a subtle way has the potential of shaping their lives positively long after they have taken the class and parted ways with the instructor.
I think, the feed back was very useful for the development of teaching skills and decided to plan more teaching sessions with adequate preparation in the future. Gibbs model was effective to identify and solve the issues aroused during and after the session and I wish to continue to use this reflective model again in the future to improve my professional and teaching skills.
To recap, finalizing the thesis with Hanze University for applied science following my MIBM course has increased the level of my preparedness to go back to my office and successfully utilize my energy and knowledge. In my opinion, the biggest benefit I received from enrolling to this course of study is that the course of study, the thesis and doing the presentations in different classes have made me believe in my skills and capabilities and they have also awoken my desire to approach studying as a lifelong process. Furthermore, I have acquired a set of personal and professional gains as a result of completing the thesis that includes the development of a critical mindset, improvement of my writing and time management skills and enhancement of the level of my
Developing a personal philosophy of education allowed you to increase your being professional by providing a concrete form of reference for reflection, although many years of experience in the fieldwork would definitely help you to improve and enhance your teaching skills. Hence, as an intern, I am embarking on an experience that could change my life. I am investing a lot of time and energy into completing my internship successfully. Part of this program consists also in asking myself a series of questions. For example, about how students learn best and what my goals for my students are.
This is what education is all about. The first thing I redesigned in my lesson plan is the learner diversity section. Being able to promote diversity in my classroom is a goal of mine. At the same time, achieving this can be tough. This goal allows me to highlight a variety of challenges and concerns, which promotes diversity.
I would strive to be a transformational Assistant Headteacher, constantly looking forward and shaping the future of learning rather than being purely transactional.

In conclusion, I believe that I can offer a wealth of expertise and experience in contributing towards the continued development of a cohesive, dynamic and collaborative school that focuses on offering outstanding world class learning opportunities for all. I consider myself to be a good role model to students and staff alike and I am committed to leading by example.
I believe writing this paper has given me a better understanding of the type of students I want to teach. This paper will also be a very good resource for my teaching career, because I could use it as an artifact in my portfolio and it could fit under a number of standards. This information has really given me a good foundation of what shall be expected in my future education and career.
I have subscribed to their newsletters or blogs and am reading about classroom technology daily. These resources will help me become a better teacher in several ways. I will be able to maximize my use of the existing technologies already available to me in my classroom. They will expand the repertoire of technology tools I am familiar with and broaden the options I can offer my students. They will provide fresh ideas to spark my thinking about how to integrate technology into my instruction, and they will help me find technology solutions to overcome specific barriers in my instruction.
