When Eleanor was still in school, “She also learned to speak French fluently, a skill she polished by traveling in France, living for a time with a French family” (Jacobs 91). This proves that Eleanor’s passion, no matter what it is for, is extremely strong. In this example, she became passionate about learning a new language, and so she pursued this passion. This is beneficial to UNICEF, because if Eleanor was ambassador, she would would invest a lot of effort into even the small events, like fundraisers or another promotional ad. Therefore,
Getting involved means being apart of something more, having the chance to met different people, helping out the community, but its also means learning more about who you are as a person. Starting off at Washburn University I plan to get involved right away, in activities or clubs that would help my academically and socially like the Hispanic club , Freethinkers and French club.I will set goals for myself and achieve them, some small some big. One goal I am pursuing right now is learning french and Portuguese, i plan on going to Brazil next year. School goals, are turning in my work on time, stay focused on any task that is given to me, making sure I understand what i need to do and how to do it. I know that other people will have more experience than me in certain aspects but everyone at washburn is there to succeed.
Allowing others to permeate my mind, dispel my own ignorance, and open up to their cultures has made all the difference. I have made new friends and learned from their experiences while securing the ties of friendships past. Along with my acceptance I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. I yearn to broaden my horizons and create opportunities where none can be found. Some may say the most important aspect of a high school education is maintaining grades.
Thank you for giving me this chance to talk about my English class, it was very excited to be a part of English 101 this quarter. We act as a family in this class by helping each other in writing, discussions stories and responding to each other. To be honest, I worked very hard this quarter and I focused more on my English class rather than other classes I had taken in SFCC. Writing is something not easy when it comes to my mind, because I am an international student and it is a differencet from my writing style and English writing style, so I should separate between them. I would not say writing English assignment is very hard for me, but I mean I make some mistakes.
Throughout this conversation with Josue Figueroa, I thought deeply about myself, my values, and how I can contribute to dealing with oppression. Overall, however, my values did not change. In the book we had to read for class, Leadership for a Better World: Understanding the Social Change Model of Leadership Development, I read that values and principles represent the priorities that guide how people live their lives and what they willing to do to reach a certain goal (pg. 304). I believe Josue and I value many of the same things and our perspective of society is
It was through this person and class, I ‘ve grasped that people learn in many different ways, and by embracing the importance of this learning style’s for myself as well as in teaching exerts a powerful influence on a child’s ablity to do well in school. The first major task
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.
Working with children can be extremely challenging. Because of my values, I am determined to come to the best solution I can when dealing with challenging situations. I also use my determination to keep my place of work tidy and organized. I consider myself a reliable teacher and coworker. If any of the kids have any concerns or questions, they can rely on me to try my best to help them find the answer.
Character and personality As a beginning teacher, I believe in building relationships with the students, parents, and community. I think that volunteering and being involved in the community is a very important role as a teacher. It demonstrates that you care about your students life, seeing them and engaging with them outside of the school atmosphere. With students, I feel that I have the ability to relate content to students by being energetic. I think your voice needs to show passion, especially in read alouds.
That is the knowledge I appreciated most from this novel. Tale of Two Cities was on the college boards list of books because Charles Dickinson was a renowned author who is very talented at writing and making a story come to life. It also has a very intellectual historic base. Also because in order to read the book you have to have further knowledge on the French Revolution not seen in the book. I would most definitely recommend this book to others because it gave me a wider knowledge on the French Revolution which has a lot to do with Chaminde.
As I facilitated the professional learning communities, I was able to empower the teachers to create a safe, supportive environment, encouraged them to take leadership of the group, and provided a forum for creativity and growth. I found that many of my skills used for coaching were valuable in creating a safe learning community. For example, building trust and positive relationships is key for teachers to feel safe to share experiences and ideas. In addition, I empowered the teachers to define what the vision for their group would be, become leaders of the group, and generate topics to promote
I believe this was done by building a safe learning environment, and providing encouragement for all students. The teacher is great at multitasking, she was able to assist multiple students doing various activities, and she had smooth transitions during subject changes. I noticed how effective her classroom management skills
