Every person has an opinion about one thing or another about our educational system. I want to become more familiar with the current educational issues. In doing this, I will need to be respectful and open minded about the issues at hand and understand that they will be different and challenging to me. I will also expect in return that in return that people will treat me with the same courtesy given to them. Throughout this philosophy statement, I will discuss some of my educational opinions and goals based upon my brief experiences. Knowing that they will change over the years I wish you to know that the one thing that remains the same is I will always keep the best interest of my students at heart. I do hope that you will enjoy my insight even if you do not agree, because like the title says, this is " From My Eyes Only."
In my brief experience with the education system, I do realize that it is not perfect. I will keep this within the realm of only my experience and my own projected plans for the future. Being in the education system currently, I understand how important it is to keep up with advancing technology. In the future I plan to remain well informed. In doing this I plan to attend classes and seminars. I will get involved in my community, with a focus on how it stands within our country. I will remain focused upon giving my students the best opportunities for them. I expect my students will vary based upon their previous backgrounds. They will be coming into my classroom young, (ages 5-12) happy, lonely, sad, eager, and scared. After breaking the initial barrier that is formed during the first part of school there will be changes. Overall, they will be happy, active and have a desire to learn. They will also become more familiar with each other and become friends. During the year that I have my students they will grow and be more prepared for the next stage of development in their lives.
I feel that the nature of knowledge is relative, constructed differently according to person, place and time.

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy To begin my statement of educational goals and philosophy, I would like to address the issue of the nature of students. I think it is important to state that my choice in becoming an educator was mainly influenced by my love of children of all ages. I was also priviledged to have the influence of my Grandmother Yost for seven years of my life. She was a school teacher in a one room school house in McDowell County. In the short time I was able to be with her, she left impressions on my little girl mind that I will never forget.... [tags: My Philosophy of Education]

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy As I go through lists of careers, I search for the one I will make my profession. As a freshman in college, I enrolled in Marshall University with the goal of being a neonatal registered nurse. I felt like working in the labor and delivery section of a hospital would be an amazing experience. At some point, I realized that I wanted to have a family and children someday. I want to have a life with them, but that would be difficult because as a neonatal nurse, I would be required to work through holidays, weekends, and nights.... [tags: My Philosophy of Education]

- Statement of Educational Goals And Philosophy The nature of students is that of an instinctive ability to learn. Students of ages and all grade levels reflect their surroundings and respond according to their interpretation. Naturally it is not only the influence of a classroom that shapes a student but many outside factors that determine students’ goals and abilities; for example, healthy encouragement from parents. Students may find a natural ability to perform in one area of education and with help may fine tune their ability to better their understanding of other areas.... [tags: My Philosophy of Education]

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy I can still remember coming home from school after an exciting day in the first grade. I would go straight to my room, line all of my dolls up in the floor, and “teach” them everything I had learned earlier that day. But of course, not every child who pretends to be a teacher in his or her early years actually becomes a teacher. So although I enjoyed “teaching,” I never really considered it as a choice for my life-long career. But the summer after ninth grade made me rethink my options.... [tags: My Philosophy of Education]

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy Henry Ford, Ben Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Abraham Lincoln. What do these four men have in common. First they are considered geniuses. Second they were all considered poor learners in school. This is why I want to teach. I want to help the kids who have obvious potential, but may be struggling in the classroom. By ignoring kids who are falling behind, we may be losing the next revolutionary thinker of our time. To achieve this goal, I will have to undergo a series of training steps....

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy When I was in High school I decided that I wanted to be a secondary teacher. At first I didn’t want to be a teacher, but a few of my teachers changed my mind. In secondary school, I was thought of as an outcast by both my peers and my teachers. I had moved from Washington D.C. to the small country town of Galax, in Virginia, and the way I talked and dressed gained allot of negative attention. People thought that I was not capable of anything but starting trouble, when in fact I was very quite and shy.... [tags: My Philosophy of Education]

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy As children we have many goals and dreams. Eventually, the time comes when we have to make a career decision based on our interests and goals. The choices that we make now will have a lasting effect on our lives. Like most college students I have explored many career options, but I am always lead back to the education field.

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy It is often said that the first impression you make on someone is the most important. It can never happen again and usually is not forgotten. I believe this is true for education also. Kindergarten or preschool is a child's first impression of school. Whether that impression is a good or bad one it will affect the child through the rest of their schooling. I was fortunate to have a great first impression of school which helped me to decide to become a teacher.... [tags: My Philosophy of Education]

- Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy Why do I want to become a teacher. When I think about that question, I’m sure a few of my answers would be like some of the others in the class: I love being around people, the pay isn’t too bad, you get holidays, summers, even weekends off, and I don’t even mind grading papers. On the other hand, I do have another reason I’d like to become a teacher that’s probably a little different than others. Let me explain. It was January and colder that ever....

My purpose of education is to teach students the appropriate skills to get through life successfully. They will need to have manners, and use them. They will need to communicate effectively. They will need to know mathematics to deal with today's economy. Education is a key tool for survival today. Without a proper education, a student could miss out several opportunities available to them. These things could include book-fairs, science projects, spelling bee's, problem solving groups, scholarships and much more. My students will not miss out on these and other extra-curricular activities. Each and every time I can get my students involved in these activities I feel that I am helping them to reach new challenges to better prepare them for the future.
As a teacher, I will provide the most effective atmosphere to each student to achieve at or above their scholastic level. I will create special workshops in my classroom that apply to my lessons. I will also make my lessons interesting, informative and fun. I will do my best to make my students want to learn. My classroom will also have an environment that encourages self discipline and learning. My students will learn the difference between right and wrong, and discover that there are consequences to their choices and actions. This was also practiced by Rousseau. Here is an example: a student did not study when time allowed, the student then failed the test and had to study and miss the play time to retake the test for a passing grade. Each students will be treated with respect, and fairness according to their level of achievement. I will continue to challenge them further as they advance in my classroom. I will also find different ways of helping my students become more aware of their achievements as the year moves on.
I want my students to learn from a diverse curriculum. It should include mathematics, reading and comprehension, spelling, language, writing, music, physical education, art science, history and personal safety. I would like my students to assess goals for their immediate school year. I want my students to have all of these as a solid base for their future. Depending on the grade level I would also like them to learn more about the different career paths that they will have to choose from.
I will be developing a base or foundation that my students will need in life. I will teach then the appropriate skills for their grade level. I want my students to be independent in their future. To ensure to they have the most up to date technology, I will keep up with my educational standards. I will focus on these to help my students achieve success though out their student careers.
In closure, I will remind you that these are my opinions and goals. I have no doubt that they will change in accordance to my future and what I learn. I feel that providing an education to others will be rewarding. I will continue meeting challenges through my career and will strive for the best. I am determined to stay focused upon my goals and to remember that I am hare for the students.
