A Mother’s Journey In Particular we all share a common aspect, we all have mothers that gave life to us, from the instant they created us. A mother who loves and cares who sits downs and listens to your problems, who pushes you harder and takes the tears away. A mother is the who has a warm understanding and a infinite patience. A mother is the most important person in a child’s life, a mother who is always committed to their children and that will do the impossible for them no matter how hard the circumstances are. Our mothers can be good and bad but yet we have to understand they also learn from their children.
No matter what happens in life, she has taught me to have faith and keep a smile on my face because better days will come. She’s been supportive and makes sure that I continue to prosper. Also, she has helped mold me into the young adult I am today and the success adult that I am sure to be in my future. My mother has greatly affected my life and for that she is greatly
Even though my daughter is not alive, I still present myself as a mother because I wanted to be respected as a mother. My low self-esteem really affected every aspect of my life. I had hit rock bottom and didn’t believe that I could do anything to benefit my life or anyone else’s. I struggled with the person I was and the person I wanted to be. After joining the grief group and therapy, I came to the realization that I was able to do something to benefit my life because my daughter gave me the strength to do anything I wanted.
Educational Goals and Philosophy Teaching is a complex occupation that requires as much empathy and emotion as it does educational skill. I had always dreamed of becoming a teacher, and realized after having my own children, that I would not truly be fulfilling my purpose in life if I did not pursue this dream. As a volunteer at the elementary school in my community, I loved the environment and took tremendous joy in watching the children learn. I felt that I had the ability, along with the dedication and desire, it would take to become a full time educator. To achieve this goal I will strive to give my students a positive beginning, provide confidence in their individual abilities, and prepare them for different aspects in life.
To become good embers of society, they need a good “head start.” I believe that this is the best way for me to contribute to this start is by becoming a teacher. I truly believe that I can make a difference in the lives of many children and that is my long-term goal to impact as many families for the best that I possibly can. After all, getting the family on the right track is half the battle of getting the child on the right track. This is why early childhood is such a vital part of a child’s education. It is much easier to find where you are going when you get off on the right path.
When I was young, I wanted to have a successful career and stable life. I believed my life would be packed a bright future because my parents gave me lots of love and warm atmosphere at home. Now, I became a mother and I have tried to give my daughter same as my parents did. I knew that how much they sacrificed their life for me because I am doing. Sometime, I am living just mother or daughter.
Many reasons pop into my head, yet only a few really explain my desire to teach. I want to be a teacher not just because of the benefits of the educator’s lifestyle, but also because of the blessed joy of working with children, the fact I will continue to grow and learn, and the opportunity to make a positive impact on a child. First, the obvious reasons why so many people go into the field of education definitely had a minor influence on my decision. I have heard my mom say it repeatedly – “Teaching is the perfect job if you want to raise a family”. For me, I view raising a family as one of the most important duties God has given me.
All a child is looking for is a lot of love and support but there is so much more that goes along with the task you take as a parent. Parenting should involve spending time with your kids, chatting with them daily, teaching them right from wrong, teaching them manners, teaching them to share, loving them, playing with them, teaching them what respect is and installing moral values in them. (Lane) Not only does a parent take on the title of a role model, they are also take on the role of being the most important teacher their child will come across in their life. Teaching them love, honor and respect is only the start. Many parents don't seem to understand that they are molding our next generation and that our children take what they learn at home and what they learned growing up and apply it to their lives and how they will raise their children.
They have made me strong. Even through some unexpected turns, I have learned how to get through hard times and really learn what it means to never give up. My children are my biggest blessing, and I hope they will learn valuable lessons through me. The skills I have learned from being a mother have helped me in my college journey.
Children have a spirit for life. We need to encourage this spirit to keep growing. Teaching is a very complicated, challenging, yet rewarding career. Hopefully, by the time I begin to teach I will be able to apply all the teaching strategies and techniques that I favored for my philosophy of education. I define myself as a person who always strives to be the best educator I can be.
