Student teaching has fanned the fire of my passion for being a teacher and been a light onto the path of how to become the best I can be. Reflecting on each experience, the successful and the not so successful, has encouraged me to continue to persevere and grow from these challenges. Not only did I discover a great deal about teaching but I also learned a great deal about myself. I was able to surpass all the challenges that I have faced. I touch the lives of my students and to be part of them even in a very little way.
Academic success to me is achieving good grades and understanding the material to get good grades. Academic success also means to have an good attendance. I already get mostly A’s and B’s, but I am not good at staying on top of things. To improve my academic success I will attend class more often, be more organized, pay attention in class, and not procrastinate. Attending class is important so I don't miss any assignments and get behind.
Such a position affords me great comfort and happiness when I realize the joy and gratitude of a client after a successful service delivery. I also tend to always be ready at hand to assist my colleagues and to always learn and be confident in my work position. For the lack of it cripples my ability to help. I tend to get very frustrated when I cannot
It has been strongly carved into my mind since that time that it is hard and painful that I cannot communicate with words. However, during that time, I became the same student as who attends the American school. The touching different culture was very fun to me. From that moment, I understood that seeing a different world in me is a joy of life for me. If you make an effort, you will be rewarded.
Rose describes: “I loved getting good grades from MacFarland…I had made something of value” (Rose, 1989, p. 9). He had met his teacher’s expectation and that made him feel accomplished. On the other hand, if a teacher expects very little from their students, the students will slack on their assignments and tests and become lazy, knowing they will not be
I agree with this theory and also there are other ways to maintain a positive classroom management, such as: setting the classroom rules at the beginning of each lesson, checks in with all the students to make sure they’re ready, maintaining the student’s dignity, and also treating them equally with fairness. I think that patience is an important part of maintaining a positive classroom management, as long as the teacher is patient with herself and her students, she won’t have trouble earning their love, respect and trust. Some people deal with negative behaviors using punishment that temporarily lasts. Although, punishment works with most students, it’s also ineffective for students with chronic behavioral difficulties. However, if we treat all children equally and be patient with ourselves and them, then maintaining a positive classroom management will be easy.
This has helped me out in school because it has helped me to be a better student class when kids don’t want to or are not listening and I sit there being a good example they will see me and start to follow so it has helped me to be a better student in class. It has helped me in school, because other kids respect the school and the teachers when other people do it. All it takes is one person being good and then more and more follow, so it has helped me be better in school. Being a big sister has helped me be a better student in school and class, because I can set a good example for others and then everybody is being good or somewhat
In my sessions one of the values I follow is that I respect my students and also speak gently. I prefer that the students look at my session as a time in their day where they can have fun while learning. I feel that students in our educational system tend to have a lot of theoretical work, so I would want my students to enjoy their time during the session. Something else I value while coaching is that I trust my students. I found that trusting my students helped in building a good
I feel I am exactly the type of person needed in your society. I have a positive attitude about learning; I enjoy participating in class; I am a very good leader; I follow directions; I am a responsible person and I believe I have a service oriented personality. I am fully aware that if I make the National Honor Junior Society I will have to attend after school meetings. Also have to attend and help in service activities. This does not affect my decision this just makes me appreciate it even more.
I have received the compliment that I am a good student I think because I turn every assignment in and make sense in the classroom. I have received the compliment that I am hard working for people like my family members because I put a lot of hard work into everything I do and the people around me can see that. I have gotten the compliment that I am resourceful because rarely let other people or me through anything away if it is not trash because I can always make it into something else. Another compliment that I have gotten was that I am generous towards my cousins and the people I care about or I just don’t want to make sad. I am also funny according to my sister.
