This essay presents an overview of my personal experiences with Math, both positively and negatively, along with my overall attitude towards the subject and lastly, it will share how confident I am with my math skills. During primary school, creative skills were utilized in order to teach Mathematics effectively. My primary school was small and because of this, the teachers were often able to conduct lessons outside of the classroom. As a result
When I think about myself, as a math learner one thing that I know is very important is low stress. Growing up during Elementary school, Middle school and high school I always enjoyed math and found it to be a very interesting and relaxing subject. Once I began taking AP Calculus during my senior year of high school I saw my stress level start to raise and my retention of information and my engagement with understanding the material versus just getting the right answer drop. I became fixated with having the right answers even if I did not understand how the math worked. This is a sad reality for many high school math students they are obsessed with the right answer.
In the half-century since my kindergarten days, I have never been away from classrooms for longer than a few months. I am as at home among blackboards, half-desks, lecterns, and seminar tables as among the furniture of my writing-room; both are the furniture of my head.” Some teachers chose the profession for their love towards the subject and some may love the students. Even though their salaries may be modest, they still intend to teach with passion as they love
With a lot of time and patience my mother taught me my ABC’s, then before I knew it I was a kindergartener. My mom also displayed a lot of patience with me by teaching me how to write my own name. I was obviously not a professional writer starting out, but with my mother’s confidence in me, I felt like one. My writing experience really began in kindergarten. As a kindergartener, we were given papers with one letter of the alphabet on it at a time to trace to become familiar with the letters.
Literacy Journey My literacy journey starts before I could read. When I was in preschool I have memories of my mom and two older brothers reading to me. I remember reading during that time were The Emperor's New Clothes specifically by my brothers, Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, and Where the Wild Things are by my mom that was one of her favorites as a child. My parents were not avid readers but encouraged relatives to give us books instead of toys. When I got to elementary school I loved reading some of my favorites from Kindergarten were Chrysanthemum, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and 101 Dalmatians.
The first day of summer after my Kindergarten year I went home and set up a classroom of my own and pretended I was a teacher. Since that day I have always known I’ve wanted to be a teacher and that is part of the reason of why I am here. As I grew up and my family members started having children of their own, I really began to find some of who I was and the answer to the why of why I wanted to be a teacher. Being around kids, even though at the time I was a kid myself, I learned that I had a special connection and patience with them. When I became old enough to babysit I couldn’t get enough of it.
During my four years in college, I learned all of the best teaching strategies, how to write effective lesson plans, and learned about behavior management strategies. It was not something I questioned; you just simply follow the lead of the instructors and the clinical instructors I was placed to work with. When I finally got to that amazing, yet frightening first day, I dreamt of those twenty-five smiling second grade students sitting completely still and eager to learn. Then the students actually came into my classroom. Much to my surprise, there were students that exhibited disruptive behavior.
My teacher makes the class a whole lot easier. She is a great teacher, and she explains and works out the problems until we understand them. Ms. Lawson knows exactly what she is doing, and she could probably solve any math problem you gave her. She is a great math teacher, and she is great and what she does. It all depends on the person, whether the class is easy or hard.
She helped me with my homework and made sure that I had a great education. Often times, she would buy me school supplies and anything else that I needed for school. It is hard to describe the feeling a mother has toward her children. My mother always listened to my problems no matter what they were. She helped me solve my problems and she always talked me through my
Angela Duckworth a Math educator did a tremendous task in and giving assignment to her seventh grade pupils. She claims that grit is combination of passion and perseverance, as well as that successful people always believe in themselves. They are confident and know their skills and qualities. However, she mentions that those who have internal motivation and passion they can persist longer than those who only have great willpower and speak 'without moving their fingers ' .Afterwards, she explores the value of diligence and asks if doing well in school depends on much more than the ability to learn quickly and easily. Indeed, grit, IQ and talent, is the greatest predictor of success.
