Some students tend to forget their teachers when they are done with school. Melissa Hoebee, a teacher who currently teaches in Southern Middle School, shares about her life in teaching and life experiences from her childhood to today. She chose to be a teacher because she wanted to help people learn in school. These life experiences and events before in her childhood helped her become the teacher she is today. Her greatest inspiration was her grandmother.
The role of an early childhood educator is greatly complex and comes with many challenges. Educators play a crucial role in a student’s early learning years, so it is important that people who are wanting to become early childhood educators know what the profession entails. The roles that they take on continue to change, and it is in the best interest of the teacher and the students if the educator stays up to date on them. In order to be an effective teacher, the educator must understand the complexity of these roles and center their teaching around it. While these standards play a heavy part in early childhood education, the educator has the challenging task of bringing them to life and creating a safe place of learning and growth for young
It is important to teach students about the classroom rules, schools rules, daily routines, learn to practice new skills in the classroom and out of the classroom, and now their school schedule and outside of school schedule. You want to be patient with them and be consistent and have a trusting relationship with them because, if they are suffering depression, anger issues, then they think think that the teacher is gonna failed them. It is best to have a teacher tutor them for whatever is their weakness that needs to be worked on for the children. They want to help them as the best that they possibly can to help them pass, but we want them to know that we care about who you are and we just want to help you to learn something before you move on to the next grade and for the future. All children need stability to have
The personnel, who are working in teacher education institutions, are called teacher educator. A teacher educator has two main responsibilities viz., (i) preparation of good teacher for schools; (ii) development of knowledge and generation of ideas in education. Also he has simultaneously to work with (i) Content of knowledge; and (ii) the methodology of communicating this content. He is expected to produce a competent teacher, with commitment to teaching, love for children, healthy attitudes, and be a good man. He is also expected to first make his student teacher unlearn the desirable learning made by him in his education till he comes for a teacher education programme and then acquire the desired learning.
When it comes to managing a classroom, I am sure that as I gain experience my methods and beliefs will change. However, it is still imperative that a beginning teacher has clear strategies for classroom management that are put into place before the first day of class even begins. This paper will discuss some of my current perceptions over how to be an effective classroom manager, detailing and justifying several key ideas and themes that will hopefully enable my classroom to become a well running and effective place of learning. To begin with establishing routines is perhaps the most important aspect of effective classroom management. This is an idea that has been stressed in multiple textbooks, and in every cooperating teacher I have
why she chose to become a biology lab teaching assistant. Her response was that she wants to teach undergraduate students because she wants to challenge students beyond their comfort zone. She also wanted to gain some teaching experiences by teaching the same biology lab course for five semesters. By teaching the same biology lab course, it allowed her to experience first-hand what it is like to be in a real classroom environment because she has been teaching students of various backgrounds, performance levels, and interests in science. By being a teaching assistant, it provided her an up close and personal perspective view of what a teacher is responsible for outside of the laboratory course.
Although the effectiveness of school principals has direct effect on the school staff and students, culture plays a very crucial role in ensuring the students’ performance of a school environment. This otherwise ephemeral aspect that is often taken for granted feature of schools. From my point of view, it is actually a very vital feature in educational enterprises. Culture has an impact on all human action, which is going on within the school environment. For, example, this includes the dressing code of students apart from school environment, interactions and relationships between parents and relatives, the willingness of individuals to adapt to change in tremendous situations, the instructional practice of the school, and the approach given to student learning from school
1. Please provide an example of how you nurture the competencies of children: As educators, we strive to build our students to be responsible, and active lifelong learners. In order accomplish this, we must build meaningful relationships with our students, be excellent role models and allow our students to become critical thinkers. A good teacher is someone with whom you can trust, respect and build a relationship. Many students can’t learn if there is no solid relationship built with each student personally and with the class as a whole.
As a beginner teacher you will encounter many contradictions and challenges in school; you will learn to teach in a particular context but will need to be able to transfer your learning to new contexts. Critical reflection will help teachers to do this and further allows us to synthesize different perspectives to help explain, justify or challenge what we have encountered in our own or other people’s practice. It may be that theory or literature gives us an alternative perspective
Teachers need to be self-reflective and to think about our own teaching. After each lesson I put the following questions to myself: Was the lesson effective?, What were my strengths and weaknesses?, How could it be improved? What follows are some of my reflections on various important items in my training period from the observations and own experiences carried out in the classrooms: -I have met lots of children in my internships and that is awesome for me. All the classrooms contain pupils with different abilities, different attitudes to English language and different styles of learning. I think that it is positive but also it is more difficult to respond to their different needs and interest.
In addition, the nurse asked the teachers to please be specific when there is an emergency and a nurse 's presence is required. She says it helps if teachers provide the name of the child, the symptoms of the child, and where the child is in the school to better assist the nurses in providing help to those students as quickly as possible hassle free. In other healthcare procedures she reminded teachers to inform her when they were going on field trips, so that she can gather the required medications, etc for students. In conclusion, the meeting was a wonderful learning experience. During the meeting I was able to observe the beginning of the school year medical procedures and learn about the specific needs of students how to care for them.
Outstanding educators instruct students at the edge of their academic levels, gently pushing students towards their goals. They scaffold learning, pulling away supports as students are able to work more independently. These educators must be patient, because it takes time for students to make progress.
After three quarters and over six months, I was able to go to an in depth interview with the teacher of the classroom that I peer tutor. Mr. Kanna the U.S. History teacher for juniors, has been working with me in order to help spread the knowledge further for the entire class. My role in the class is to help out the students in the classroom on any questions they have for U.S. History. Over the months, I have gotten into a routine, in which I help anyone who has a question for the home/classwork or to connect an event/person of the past to today or to be there for moral support in the class. I have personally take great joy in helping out the students in any way possible.
