As an educator my main is to help children to become pedagogically and academically successful. In order to be useful in the society in which they live they need to get a well-balanced education. Besides, we need to offer them a safe and fun environment as they learn. It is equally important, that both teachers and parents should play a decisive role in reinforce children’s emotionally, intellectually, and socially. The theory I agree with and the one I would like to base the teaching process is the theory of Anton Seminovich Makarenko.
I believe that a good teacher should incorporate more that just academic issues. There also needs to be a great deal of learning about how to deal with their social and emotional development. This is why I believe that a child’s family is the most important tool in a child’s learning process. To develop properly, as a whole, children need a stable support system throughout, their entire lives. The most common and long-term place to find this support is within their family.
Every child needs education to increase knowledge. Education is an essential life experience for children, and I think it differs depending on whom it was taught by and how it was taught. Teaching is an important profession that provides children with opportunities to learn new things and gain knowledge for their future. My focus and vision for education are similar to the educational philosophy called progressivism. Progressivism is a student-centered philosophy.
Great teachers empathize with kids, respect them, and believe that each one has something special that can be built upon. "- Ann Lieberman. As an aspiring teacher this quote promotes the ambition of mine, as my ultimate goal is to work with child and to become a primary teacher. I very much enjoy being around children and would love to be able to teach them valuable life lessons during their time in primary school in addition to the content of the national curriculum. This will help them grow emotionally and mentally into mature young people and it is this that I want to be a part of.
My Philosophy of Education I believe that every child has the ability to learn, but it takes a good teacher to be able to bring this ability out. This is a role I would like to take. I believe the purposes of education are necessary for the child to live a successful life. In my opinion, the school’s goals should begin with providing students the necessary knowledge and experiences to help contribute to our society. And it will be a very important goal for me to help my students succeed any where they go.
This environment is one in which a child can grow emotionally, intellectually, and socially. As an educator it is not only my job, but it is my hope to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas and to have them become life-long learners. The most important thing I can do is to provide an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, invites the sharing of ideas, and shows respect for self and others. To create this type of environment I must be a guide and a model. A child's natural curiosity can be a powerful tool used to direct his/her learning.
In wanting to change the lives of the next generation it is important to be competent, which is a pattern of effective adaptation to the children’s environment, being friendly, purposeful, achievement oriented, all while being involved in helping change the lives of children for the better. In this essay I will outline the student’s ability to learn, the teachers expectations, student’s social ecology theory, cultural diversity instruction, and curriculum for all learners. Student’s Ability to Learn It is an educator’s job to teach students the basics of how we learn and why we learn to build success in children. Every teacher has their own way in how they teach the children in their classes. Most teachers will have new student year after year, unless they get held back.
My motivation for teaching is giving back to the students the opportunity, motivation and understanding that has been provided to me throughout my own education. I want to help people to have better lives, to help the world to be a better place and I like children. My personal beliefs on education are that every student who comes to school could succeed in life and students has something to teach me. I am a role model to my students and I demonstrate respect, honesty, empathy, responsibility, promptness, and desire for learning. I can nurture a desire for learning in students, I feel that education should be relevant and interesting.
Philosophy Statement I believe that education is the key in developing today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders. Education is the basis on which individuals develop their self-concept and the desire to become more knowledgeable. I want to become an educator because I am interested in helping elementary students become active learners and also to assist with their social skills. I believe I can make a difference to many students as they start their educational foundation. I feel that all teachers should possess the desire to devote their hard work and efforts to their students’ educational success.
The caregiver/parent interaction is necessary for the children to keep alive the desire for communication and learning. I would like to express to others that we should keep in mind at all times that children are unique individuals that deserve care and respect. The caregiver should be a role model from day one, so the child will learn to copy her, and later on impart the same behavior to others. She should interact with the children to develop a relationship that will help the child to express feelings and emotions in a nice way. Also, I would like to express the importance of teamwork.
