I think school district need to do a better job at training school leaders get the proper training and use teacher evaluations to benefit both the teachers and students. Teacher evaluations are very important. Most of the time, they have a negative feeling attached to them. Some teachers view evaluations as a way of them getting written up for what they are not doing and not as a way of growing and improving to help them teach their students. This also depends on how the principals frame and do teacher evaluations.
Teachers are important to society for many reasons. Their objective is to help students accomplish educational goals, learn to the best of their ability and help them grow. If they achieve this then the student passes a class and or eventually graduates. Without teachers, students would not be able to get a major leaving a major setback in society. Often, teachers put a lot of time into their lesson plans while trying to think of creative ways to make the lessons exciting for their students in the classroom.
Often, the best teachers are those that find ways to connect with their students. They therefore, find ways to encourage connections to the students short and long term goals. Many times, students do not find it easy to identify goals. Younger student’s goals are often geared towards pleasing parents or their teachers however, as students grow and mature their motivations change. Many students in the later grades find it much more important to please their peers.
Different opinions arise when it comes to whom is supposed to evaluate teachers’ performances as they educate students. Although teachers have had the proper education necessary to execute education in a classroom, some lack skills to present material which students can fully comprehend. In an effort to help students grasp learning material, the idea of students evaluating and grading their teacher’s performance has been suggested. This idea would be helpful to teachers who need views on how to reach slower students and whom welcome helpful criticism. However, the entire evaluation should not be based solely on students opinions.
I think that it is important for teachers to teach what to do rather than just telling them what not to do. Guidance is a process learned after time and being able to make mistakes and learn from them in a supportive environment is a great opportunity for children to become socially competent. There is only so much teaching that a teacher can do before a child should learn how to solve a situation on their own. Our job as a teacher will be to teach our students right from wrong and hope that they learn to figure out it out for themselves in the future. Teachers assist children with their problems in a positive way and teach them appropriate behaviors so they will understand what is acceptable and unacceptable.
Many of these children do not receive the positive attitude at home that they can succeed and meet challenges in their life. I want them to recognize their challenges and to raise their self-esteem, so that they can achieve every goal in life. I feel that these students have the potential and ability to gain the knowledge and to make a valuable impact on today’s society. It will be my job, as a teacher; to make sure that the correct technique is being demonstrated to ensure that these students reach their full potential. The main goal to any teaching technique is to give confidence to that student that he/she can do anything.
We have to make the work that the children do challenging yet not to simple. We must push our children to reach for that little extra step in their cognitive thinking. We must try to get them to succeed just a little past their limit, but not too fa... ... middle of paper ... ...make sure that we are influencing our students in a positive way. The things that we say and do are easily absorbed by little ears that we do not think here us. Guiding our students through educational work is one aspect of being a teacher, however, the other half is helping them to build their character and understand good morals and values.
On top of everything else, teachers must possess an irrepressible yearning to motivate and educate children. Some children receive very little praise and motivation outside of the classroom environment. This puts a new responsibility on teachers to make sure that children (especially those who are underprivileged or disregarded by friends and family) get the attention and motivation they need in order to achieve. This can make all the difference in a child?s ability to do well in school. Knowing the characteristics of an exceptional teacher, along with realizing the challenges that teachers face to become effective and respected are daily motivation for me.
The Struggles Facing LD Students Students with learning disabilities are a part of the educational system and they always will be. These students have a single goal in mind, but their disability and social barriers keep them from it. On the other hand, educators have pledged to teach all students, but some fail to teach LD students. This represents an ethical, moral, and legal breakdown of their responsibilities. Educators need to be properly trained and aware of how to meet the needs of these students.
Introduction: One of a teacher’s many jobs is to guide his or her students. Guidance is especially important for teachers to implement for students of a young age. Guidance is important for teachers to implement for many expansive reasons. Young children tend to be, according to Erikson, egotistical and think about their own feelings and wants. This arrogance and selfishness will cause many problems with both other students and teachers.
