Letter did for me. I think relating the coursework to school and community events and finding a way to explain the topic related to something the student is really interested in will both make me a better teacher and my students feel I really care about them and teaching. I feel when coursework is relevant to a student’s life in school and out, making the coursework meaningful and important to students will just encourage the students more to learn and use materials that are being taught in the classroom. Ms. Letter helped me see that everyone learns differently. She also taught me that every topic can be broken down and related to something else in life.
According to our textbook Student Teaching, “Self -knowledge should precede trying to impart knowledge to others.” All of my beliefs and values help to shape who I am and what my educational philosophy consists of. Since I value learning I believe teaching is an important job. I am constantly learning myself therefore I am modeling the importance of education to my students. I value imagination and exploration. Therefore I provide many hands on activities that allow the children to explore and to use their imagination In summary, one of my hopes and goals as an educator is foster a love of learning in all of my students.
Teaching Philosophy The most important impact I want to have on students is that they remember me as a teacher who cares about their education. I want to leave an impact on each child’s life. My motivation to teach comes from a desire to help others and see student’s excitements as they learn new concepts. I believe teaching is my way to make a positive difference for each of my students. My approach to teaching is based on the belief that my purpose at any school is to serve the students.
The children are the ones who suffer. If the children stay as the focus in each classroom and are positively influenced by the teacher then education, what it truly means, will be reached. I plan to incorporate all of this into my everyday classroom. I hope others do to.
My Philosophy A teacher plays a very important role in a child’s life, and that is the main reason I want to be a teacher. I want to be able to inspire, empower and help children to discover their unique learning ability, special interests and qualities. As a teacher I will be able to give students the gift of an education, which will help them advance as adults. I feel that there are many ways to go about teaching and managing a positive learning environment. I want to have a classroom in which students feel personally altered by their experience in my classroom.
In this paper I will discuss the qualities that are necessary for effective teaching, supported with information from an interview with Dr. Ginny Maurer. Since the education profession is one that is ever evolving and constantly changing, it is very important for teacher to possess the qualities that are needed in order for them to be as effective as possible. One of these qualities is being able to motivate students to push themselves to learn. The able to create a passion within the student for an education is something that every teacher should be striving for during their career. In my interview with Dr. Maurer, she said that getting to know your students and making the class as interesting and engaging as possible are two ways to help motivate students toward an education.
I believe a classroom should be a sanctuary of learning in which the students know from the beginning what is expected of them and the teacher should discuss what is expected of her as a teacher. There needs to be an understanding amongst all involved with the children education. This understanding can lead to a fun filled adventurous classroom that encourages students to strive for the best. I believe when students and teachers are able to learn from each other, the learning environment can be successful. A successful classroom involves having an effective educator who believes they can make a difference in their students’ lives by believing in themselves as productive teachers.
My teaching philosophy is rooted in my goal to effectively teach all my students and instill in them a love of learning. I want my students to understand that learning should take place not only in the confines of the classroom, but throughout their everyday lives. I strive to help them become life-long learners and to seize their own opportunities to gain knowledge. I am an enthusiastic educator who places a large emphasis on differentiation. Understanding that each child is unique and that students learn in different ways, I believe it is essential for educators to differentiate our lessons to better meet the needs of our students.
Policies and legislation have set the standard for an inclusive education system that values all students, regardless of difference. As a preservice teacher about to enter into the teaching profession it will be my responsibility to cultivate optimum teaching and learning experiences that will support all students’ social, emotional and academic development. Whilst this task does seem daunting and challenging, it is also exciting to be one of the many pioneers who will contribute to an educational reform, resulting in the ideal of inclusive education. Within my classroom there may be learners who are: visually impaired, hearing impaired, physically disabled, ADHD, ASD, bereaved, affected by trauma, or gifted and talented, only to name a few considerations. How will it be possible for me to provide access to learning that will enhance social, emotional and academic development for every student within my classroom?
Personal Philosophy of Education and Learning My philosophy on education and learning is simple; to teach my future students to the best of my ability to achieve academic success. As well as getting to know my students well. Getting to know a little of their background can help make a difference in our teaching career. As a teacher, we care for our student’s educational needs and to achieve a full potential in their learning ability. I believe that education is an individual, unique experience for every student who enters a classroom.
