Students who are not used to seeing, working and talking to students with disabilities would feel very uncomfortable. Some could argue, is this the least restrictive environment for those students? Do they not have the same right to learn? The answer is yes, but all students have a right to learn. These disabled students take away from the normal students receiving the teachers help.
Humanistic educators believe that each student has potential growth to learn and become the best one can be. They believe that each child should feel valued emotionally and socially. The role of the teacher is to create a nurturing atmosphere in the classroom and to promote the growth of a whole person. This philosophy is very important to incorporate in a classroom because students should feel like they are doing a good job. They should know that the teacher wants them to succeed and that they actually care about them.
With the invitation to education most students wouldn’t achieve as high of a standard they are capable of. I believe this is a major part in education. Most teachers know the educational abilities of every student, but when they see that an individual isn’t reaching that mark they push them to do better for the benefit of the student. In both of these stories the teachers believed that the student could do better, and they tried their best to show the student what their capabilities are. One of the hardest parts in education for the students is to get the invitation from their teachers.
I hope to someday be a teacher that when a child grows up they still remember fondly. I want to teach so that I can create an inclusive classroom environment that is perfect for learning. My goal is to get students excited to learn. I will accommodate to all of my students according to their individual needs. I aspire to be a teacher who respects their students and gets respect back.
Yes, lesson delivery and classroom engagement is important for students to succeed in the classroom, however, the formation of relationships with students and their families is of utmost importance. After the establishment of a sense of classroom community, “everything else begins to fall in place.” Children are engaged, they want to learn, they begin to self monitor and that’s what is most powerful. As I continue to develop my philosophies of teaching, specifically, classroom management I will bring along with me this experience and take into account Mr. Decker’s experiences and suggestions. It is important for me to recognize that being a teacher isn’t an easy job, it’s more than just lecturing students and drilling information in which I want them to regurgitate. Being a teacher is caring about the individual “whole student” their home life, their like’s and dislikes as well as their strengths and weaknesses, all in hopes of pushing each student to be as successful as
Parents trust their children to be taught and educated at school, to be hoped that they will become good and qualified human beings. A teacher takes an important role in motivating the students to get their success in their life. A teacher could bring positive or negative energy to the students that someday will bring him to become a teacher to follow or to avoid by the students. The teachers also play an important role in
2. Diversity Within any classroom there are students and each student has a variety of needs that can affect the learning of the student and the teacher’s ability to instruct the student. These needs can influence a student’s learning experience academically, emotionally, socially and many other aspects to varying degrees; depending on how much a student’s learning experience is affected, the student’s academic progress can be hindered due to their needs not being addressed. Any parent and teacher would want every student to have equal opportunities to grow and develop academically and to become productive members of society. However, by not considering that a student might have specific needs that should be addressed, the student is being
I am pursing a degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Education. I am passionate about education and excited to share the joy of learning with students. The perspective of wonder and sense of excitement that children bring into education motivates me daily. Teaching can leave a lasting impression in a child’s life and offers a special opportunity to shape the bright young minds of future generations. While many professions can be impactful, I believe the qualities of the person in the career position to be the most influential.
A bright student can get great grades on tests and love to do hands-on, difficult experiments, but even with all of their intelligence, they can still stress over homework assignments. That is because the homework load is so large that it is overwhelming. He never has time to have a healthy life for a child his age and it is a daily balance between grades, friends, and sleep. This is the problem with many students in middle through high-school. Homework is harmful because students can become extremely stressed, lose important development years where they should be learning how to socialize and they can even completely lose their appreciation for learning.
Parker Palmer’s The Heart of a Teacher: Identity and Integrity in Teaching had an impact on my idea of what it means to be a teacher. The main points Palmer highlights are what it means to be a great teacher and make a lasting impression in a student; we must teach from who we are and connect with students. I can relate to this as building a relationship with students and a comfortable atmosphere is important in my teaching. Good teaching develops from connections with students and content. When I think back to my placement and reflect on what I wanted to achieve the most, it was to connect with my students and build a relationship.
Having JROTC in school is good for the community and students. It not only teaches students to take responsibility, it teaches them how to respect and appreciate the things they have in their life. Hopefully this great program will advance and help more students in the near
Being positive with the students at Hope Academy will help them realize how important it is to learn and become a better student and help them understand that they can do anything they out their mind too. The dedication the school puts to each individual student is amazing and lets you see how helpful someone can be in someone’s else’s
Outstanding educators must possess many important qualities. They must be knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subjects that they teach. If a teacher is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, their students will be more excited about what they need to learn, and see the teacher as a valuable resource. These educators must continue to pursue learning opportunities and use this new knowledge to improve their instruction. Students come to school at different academic levels.
