When I decided to train to become a professional school counselor, I knew I had a long road ahead. I am trained to be a teacher, a special education teacher to be specific, and though I will be able to use much of my past experience as a classroom teacher in my school counseling practice, I am aware that I will also need to see my students in a new way, a more holistic way. I will need to focus not only on what works in the classroom, but what works in order to motivate and support the students with whom I meet. It is essential for me to determine what will drive me, inspire me to be the best school counselor for both my school and students, therefore, I must determine my professional philosophy of education and school counseling and develop my beliefs, vision and mission statements. Though there have been many philosophies of education over the years, there are two that encompass my belief system most, traditional and progressive.
Looking back at what I have learned about becoming a teacher is assisting students to make the desired conclusions but utimately letting them come to the conclusion on their own. Which I think is an important skill to have as a teacher but I think it is vital when discussing such an important and touchy subject. I am excited to see at the end of the semester what I conclude. The learning outcomes that I focused on was; knowledge of the culture of another country or people, and an awareness of how culture is instrumental in shaping one 's
Member, National Honors Society, As an active member of National Honors Society one of our main tenets of leadership is building a strong presence in the community as a whole-school or otherwise. This manifested into offering after school tutoring in math and science areas where the school struggles in terms of college readiness. I was initially apprehensive, wondering if people would show up after school to study. But, I was pleasantly surprised at the number of people willing to take charge of their own learning and taking the after school tutoring extra help. Because I was actively tutoring students I was able to improve my own knowledge of the course material and continuously learn and improve myself.
I can also compare my strengths and weaknesses to make a personal development plan to provide myself with motivation but this can also allow me to deliver a high quality service to the children and their parents during transitions, such as; delivering empathy, coping mechanisms and education. Consistency is key and I will be consistent with my behaviours and delivery to help the children progress and reach their full potential therefore I will continue carrying out observations to keep parents informed of their child’s progress when beginning school and throughout the year. I believe I have learned from my chosen theme on transitions. Beginning my essay I was nervous writing about transitions and this scared me from investigating different transitions that occur for children and how to support them. When I began to think of my own practice and investigate websites it give me a foundation to complete the essay but to also apply changes to my own
As for my professional experience on the knowledge on critical thinking these strategies will help support the thinking process that I can give and help deliver the information to my students in the proper form. This will also help my students with the lectures that I teach in class, to understand the theory, help social skills, and as well as work ethics.

6. Describe three specific ways you can inspire students to be better students? First, I will talk to students individually. I want the students to be comfortable around me, and they should feel the need to ask me any questions they have. Second, I will help the student be involved in the school, because I believe that a student should take a grasp at every opportunity they have.
For these students, I will try and learn as much as I can about their home lives as I can. The more I know about their home lives, the more I will be able to understand and help the student. I also want to make these students feel comfortable in my classroom, many times Kimberly felt uncomfortable or felt as though she didn’t belong because she was different. In my classroom, I will do my best to help make students feel comfortable and feel like they belong in my classroom. To help make students feel comfortable, I might have a unit on cultures.
Being aware of my learning style and those of my students will make me a better educator. Since I will be teaching younger children I must be creative in ways to assess their learning style and be willing to take the time to get to know each one of
