The content delivered in PD sessions must be based on high expectations that clearly show how these skills would be used in the classroom, and should “use models that have been proven to make a difference for adult learning” (Mooney & Mausbach, 2008, p. 95). By connecting material that has been proven to improve teaching practices to actual daily teaching, teachers will be more successful at implementing new skills into their everyday teaching and improvi...
Being a reflective practitioner means that an educator must take time to think about their processes in the classroom and the outcome of their efforts and find ways to not only progress but to improve upon current their methods. This helps to improve the quality of education for all students and allows educators to develop into more effective educators. Self-reflection and sharing ideas and concepts with fellow educators make for a more well-rounded and effective teacher. I personally like to work with other educators sharing ideas and insights. I learn from others as well as share my ideas with my peers.
It is my belief that great teachers result in great students. There are many ways that teachers can have a positive influence on their students and co-workers. In order to be the best educator I can be, I feel that it is my responsibility to take part in continuing education trainings as well as to collaborate with my fellow educators. It is important to remember that technology is always changing. Therefore, I must immerse myself in what is new and current to better the lives and education of my students.
In the process of completing this coursework, I have realised that every teacher should be all-rounded and equipped with adequate skills of educating others as well as self-learning. As a future educator, we need make sure that our knowledge is always up-to-date and applicable in the process of teaching and learning from time to time. With these skills, we will be able to improvise and improve the lesson and therefore boost the competency of pupils in the process of learning. In the process of planning a lesson, I have changed my perception on lesson planning from the student’s desk to the teacher’s desk. I have taken the responsibility as a teacher to plan a whole 60-minutes lesson with my group members.
The essential goal of education is to give children the knowledge and means to entire the workforce and achieve success (Carmichael, 2009). It is important as teachers that we welcome the diverse needs of all students. While it is fundamental that teachers are well-informed on the content they are teaching and are responsible to guide student learning, there is much more to emerging student learning. To develop students’ education, schools should provide a structure of classroom communities conductive to learning. School environments must be respectful, caring, stable, and stimulating atmospheres in order to enhance the learning environment.
Abstract The main goal of education is to prepare individuals to be contributing citizens of our society and to help them reach their true potential. Education provides the foundation that enables students to be successful lifelong learners that thrive in society. While schools are the catalyst for the dissemination of education, it is a successful partnership between schools, government family and community that ensures the ultimate success of education. A clear focus on educating all students despite their diverse needs and differentiated instruction are essential. Teachers serve as facilitators who guide students in the learning process.
Therefore, it is very important that the teachers create a very harmonious relations with their students in order to get out the best of there students . From early age, teachers should show the students that they very important, and they are the future of the country. Also, students opinions and point of view should be considered by the teachers, and they should always encourage students to participate and not be afraid to share their opinions and points of view to help them develop their critical thinking skills. The schools need to have more professors who deliver their experience in life to their students, so students can interact with more manner in the society. Teachers should be able to provide the information which students need in their daily life.
One way is that teachers experience working collaborative with other educators and acquire new skills that they will model later for their students in the classroom. If teachers get to practice collaborative professional development, they become better educators, better listeners, and better communicators. For this reason, students develop better listening and communication skills because the teacher modeled these skills that he or she learned in these collaborative professional
With this set in motion, it was not only my opportunity to support our teachers through this change process but also impact their instruction in a way that is transformational for themselves and for the students. In order to achieve success, I understood the importance of supporting teachers and leverage the resources that we already have at our site. My first evidence of leveraging this resource is working collaboratively with our Leadership Team. I was fortunate that the structure of meeting with leadership team members was well established prior to my arrival. However, in my observations the focus was not always on instruction.
Also, schools should have more parent meetings where the role of teachers and their hard work are emphasized. I use this knowledge to expand my understanding of what excellence is all about in the teaching and learning field by be highly qualified and conversant in the subject matter. I should have the ability to teach different student in many learning plans. In addition to be an affective teacher, my learning would lead to more positive student achievement. In classroom, I should work hard to meet my student’s need.
