A. Equality of opportunity.Classroom assistants have an important role in ensuring pupilsâ€™ equal access to opportunities to learn and develop. Some pupils need additional or different support in order to have equality of opportunity, and classroom assistants are often employed to provide this for individuals or small groups of pupils.

Furthermore, following both Bruffee’s and Dewey’s beliefs, I have gained further appreciation for the group work I had done in the past. Group learning was imperative for my growth as an individual in a society where working with others is inevitable, and an essential ability. Knowing this, I am going to communicate this as much as I can to any students I encounter who are anti-group

Through these challenges, however, teachers should be prepared to move forward in ensuring they meet the demands and needs of exceptional scholars, and track their progress daily.

I worked with all the color groups and spent time in both the art and science classes, so I’m flexible and open to working with any class or age group. Also, I always try to bring positivity, and enthusiasm whenever I work with children. Though working with kids can be lovely and great fun, I’m quite aware of the importance of putting safety first. Through my experience, I have become patient, understanding, and learned how to talk and treat kids to get them to cooperate when they’re in a negative mood or refusing to listen. But, one of the best aspects I find working with children is forming bonds and friendships and I put forth an effort to be a comforting friend, but also conscious to serve as a good role model to the children I’m

I believe that every child is an abled body, and the expectations we attached with them usually leads to a self fulfilling prophecy. If I will believe a child is able, I will work hard to make it possible, but if my expectations are otherwise, the result will prove it too. I have spent a substantial part of my life taking care of children around me as well as my own children. I believe that children are our best teachers who made us aware of our own potentials and vulnerabilities.
My strengths are that I have a strong understanding of the school’s organization and goals and encourage the school to be involved in the improvement of the wider community. As key stage coordinator I feel I am approachable and always available for people to speak personally about their professional development or personal lives, but always give my team of teachers the freedom to tackle situations in their own classrooms using their own judgement. (Northouse, 2006) My team of teachers and children I teach are secure in their knowledge of my expectations, morals and ethics. The colleges I asked for feedback comment’s were varied, some enjoyed the freedom I gave them while others felt that this was in fact showed lack of participation in my management style (The Full Range Leadership Model). My goal for the is to make all teachers under my management to feel empowered if to feel that I am making making decisions based on all of their concerns, not just the more vocal people.
