The students need to trust the teacher and the environment of the classroom. I would introduce me, before the school starts, to let them feel comfortable with me. Autonomy plays a big important role in children, for the reason that they would feel proud if they can do most of it by their own. To encourage the autonomy, I will let the children to try everything until they can do it by themselves.
I would like to pass on to my students these ideas and concepts. In my desire to teach elementary students, I feel that at this stage of a child’s life they are becoming their own person with their own thoughts and ideas. Although they still need guidance, their interests and learning styles are well defined. I intend to make the learning process fun, challenging, and exciting. As the students leave my class, I hope to have passed on the idea that learning is beneficial.
Teaching Philosophy Statement I believe the purpose of education is to learn and teach our kids to expand their knowledge by learning many type of things. By discovering new ideas and new skills that the students can later applied in later future. School is where students can actually discover their true potential and what they are capable of; is the first step of discovering themselves. Education is the most precious thing we have and we have the privilege to use it, so we should take advantage and teach our students all the possible ways that they can succeed in the future. Just like my teachers have taught me in order to be prepared and take action to appropriately teach my students the right way.
I enjoyed working with the students and now I know that becoming a teacher is for me. The purpose of education is to teach children that learning is valuable and that the mind wants and needs to grow by learning. All children can learn if they put their mind to it. Not everyone learns the same way, but we are all capable of learning. I have a cousin who is down-syndrome, he is the same age as my brother and graduated the same year I did.
Therefore, I want my students to grasp this concept and always be willing to learn. I support the behaviorist’s view that the environment shapes and influences people. This theory goes into consideration with Rousseau’s theory that children mature through stages, when developing an environment suitable for the grade level a person is teaching. The curriculum should be focused on the student’s needs and how they learn best. There are a variety of methods of teaching that I will use that I believe are important.
It was then that I knew that I wanted to be an educator. It was quickly learned that I loved school and that I wanted it to be a part of my life forever. As I grew up, I recognized the many different types of individuals around me. I saw kids with learning disorders, physical handicaps, and exceptional abilities. After realizing that I would someday have to deal with these multiple situations, I decided that if I can influence children’s lives then it ... ... middle of paper ... ... students can easily learn from.
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.
The students in the classroom have the role to learn and to actively participate on a daily bases. However, regardless of their roles, the relationship between the two should be both positive and respectful. One reason that a positive relationship is so important is beca... ... middle of paper ... ...activities. Another way that I will ensure that parents are involved in their child’s education is to provide open-communication between them and myself. By communicating with parents, I will be able to help them better understand what their child is doing in class as well as allow them to discuss any concerns that they may have (Liston, 2016b).
A positive, or negative, first experience can determine a child’s attitude toward learning for the duration of a lifetime. I feel that each student has the potential and ability to gain knowledge, though each may have a different learning style. It will be my job, as a teacher, to experiment, explore, and determine the correct technique for each individual. In order to achieve this goal, I will need to be aware of the student’s personality, academic level, and any risk factors that child may have. I will work to inspire, motivate, and instill the confidence needed for each child to reach his/her full potential.
I have experienced the role of being the baby sister and the big sister. I feel that I can relate with children very well because I spent so much time with my family. My final reason for wanting to be an educator is to explore different teaching style. I have been especially interested in creating a classroom for cooperative learning and Existentialism. My classroom will be the perfect learning environment.
