Teaching Philosophy Statement Every teacher has their own philosophy and their style. They believe their philosophy, themselves, and students’ abilities. They must have been inspired by brilliant teachers, in other words, they had favorite teachers when they were students. My favorite teacher was an English teacher at my junior college in Japan. When I was a high school student, I was looking for a junior college to enter after graduating high school. I took the teacher’s trial class. When I first took his class, I was moved by him. The class zipped along, and I really enjoyed it. I thought that I wanted to be a teacher like him. He has studied abroad to Radford University in Virginia in the United States, and he told me how study abroad. Then I decided to go to college in the United States, because I would like to tell my students in the future how I felt about the United States and American culture. I do not want to just teach English to students. I want students to be interested in other countries and communicate to foreigners with English. Now, I am proceeding toward a Bachelor of Education/ English Language Arts 5-12 at Concord College. While I do not have to have the United State’s teaching certificate to teach English in Japan, I wanted to experience a different culture.

After I teach English several years, I am planning to go to graduate school in Japan or Australia. I would like to get a Master of Arts at Teachers English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Temple University in Japan is one institution that I can study TESOL in Japan. If I go to there, I can study TESOL while I work in Japan. Additionally, Australia is country where there are many immigrants; therefore linguistics is a prosperous field of study in Australia, and a lot of universities offer TESOL. One of my dreams when I entered college in America is coming true, but the way to becoming a teacher is still far away. If this dream comes true one more, I have another dream relate to English. I would like to have passion to teach English as much I can.
