As a future educator, she wants to be able to learn everything she can to be equipped with how to help her future students. This will help her, as well as her students to succeed in the classroom.

So they not only teach academically, but they also “help students learn about themselves and the world while preparing them to face future challenges” (“Elementary School Teacher” Occupational 1). On another note, they also “are responsible for monitoring kids for any social, learning, or behavioral issues” (“Elementary School Teacher” Career 1). The description of the job also depends on what kind of teaching position is taken, which leads me to the different types of teachers. Some teachers major in one topic while others
Furthermore, to guide school counselors to take appropriate actions to service the needs of all students, school counselors can infuse their pre-service understanding of multicultural issues and apply them into their school counseling education curriculum. Holcomb-McCoy also states that targeting school counseling graduate students and advising them to complete their practicum and internship in schools that are diverse, whether it’s multiethnic, multicultural, or multilingustic to gain more knowledge and experiences will be beneficial when they are placed to work with diverse students. In regards to counseling with Asian students, multicultural school counselors should use religious and spiritual traditions with their Asian students to effective build rapport and trust with the student’s families. Fred J. Hanna and Alan Green discusses ways school counselors can implement their use of multiculturalism with Asian students, specifically with students who beliefs were Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam in their article “Asian Shades of Spirituality: Implications for Multicultural School Counseling” in three different case examples

Teachers play an important role as change agents in the school context. In order to fully realize the potential of teachers as change agents’ teachers need to be supported within the school and beyond. Johnson and Donaldson (2007) suggest following five critical supports for effective teacher leadership. 126.96.36.199) Shared vision: Teacher leaders and school leaders need to share the vision for change. A shared vision allows the teacher leaders to do the hard work of leadership and to advocate for change that is responsive to that vision.
But instructors are likely to create new instructional strategies if they receive feedback and support while trying the new strategies in their classrooms. This statement suggests that teachers need regular opportunities for reflection and problem solving at the same time the students are in school. In creating time during the school days, it’s likely to miss upon needed participants. Some institutions exhibit to have all classroom teachers vacant for team planning but fail to include key support workforce. It is also important to be sensitive to the reactions of parents and help them see the value of professional development by involving them in professional development planning that is linked to improved techniques of education.
Through joint effort and in collaboration with various departments, effective implementation of integrated education and proper intervention program is required. This study therefore, was conceived to help special education teachers in handling special education class to the improvement of the whole special education program.In the face of the burgeoning problems, special education teachers encounter, this paper attempted to find out if the special education teachers are qualified and prepared in handling special education class. Their job is primarily teaching them life skills and basic literacy. However, the majority of special education teachers work with children with mild to moderate disabilities, modifying the general education curriculum to meet the child's individual needs and providing required instructionConceptual FrameworkThe researcher deemed it wise to formulate a conceptual framework using the Input-Process-Output Model in the conduct of this research study.It starts with the preparedness of high school SPED teachers, followed by the assessment of teacher’s preparedness as bases for developing intervention
Functionalist theory of education discusses the functions and dysfunctions of education. Schools functions include teaching students how to be a successful member of society and its purpose in society1. This is achieved by teaching skills, norms/values, and networking. The main goal of education is to have individuals be prepared to move from education to occupations. In Reading 5: “Social Reproduction” by David Swartz he discusses how similar power structures that are seen between workers and employers can also be seen between administrators and teachers, moving down to relationships between teachers and students.
Teachers are being placed in the center of how schools function and are being asked to aid in crucial decisions about the academic direction of the school (Warren, 2016). Research by York-Barr and Duke (2004), states “teacher leadership roles range from assisting with the management of schools to evaluating educational initiatives and facilitating professional learning communities” (p. 1). While teacher leadership is evolving, the perceptions that teachers have regarding themselves as leaders has not truly been uncovered. This literature review is an attempt to highlight the research surrounding teacher leadership. It begins with the foundations of teacher leadership which includes the history of teacher leadership, the evolving definition of teacher leadership, and finally a summary of current teacher leadership development programs.
