My philosophy of education is a reflection of my values and my views on society. As future educators we must always remember the importance of our job. Teaching can be full of challenges and responsibilities, but also full of pleasure and joy. Every student has an individual and unique experience of school and it is my desire as a teacher to ensure it is both enjoyable and worthwhile. I want to create an inquiry-based classroom where students are not waiting for the teacher to provide an answer, instead they ask questions and seek solutions for themselves.
I dedicate a lot of my time to this bike club since it allows me to give back to the community. In my school, I am a dedicated part of our Mock Trial team, where my role is to prepare and train other members of the team to be able to perform when they get up to the podium. I am also involved in my school’s Odyssey of the Mind club, where I work with other club members to further develop our STEM skills. I am also a member of my school’s math team and my school’s math enrichment program in which I develop my math skill to no limit. I am also the founder and president of my school’s disaster preparedness
Teacher professional identity encompasses how teachers view themselves as a teacher and what they consider to be a good teacher. They should always be driven towards the growth of the children, enabling them to flourish, or as Aristotle said, helping them to reach a level of ‘eudemonia’ (Nodding, 2002). While one of the key roles of teachers is to inspire students, they should first be inspired themselves, or this passion and enthusiasm will not transfer into the classroom environment (Delaney, 2017). For example, some of the teachers at St.Aibherin’s may have a strong commitment to equality and this is why they choose to work in a DEIS band 1 school in such a diverse environment. In essence, effective teachers have good intentions and believe that what they are doing is making a difference i.e.
From the beginning of tenth grade, I have started participating in the school-organized community outreach program with the Special Children’s School of Ampang (SCSOA). Every Thursday after school, for around 1 hour, volunteers carry out activities which can vary from learning games and art projects to sports recreation and dancing. Moreover, volunteers are able to communicate with children and adults alike who are learning to live in society despite having to overcome the barrier of learning disabilities. I have done this community service outreach program for two seasons, and hope to continue doing so. In addition to this, I have also expanded my service to include Kids 4 Kids (K4K), where volunteers spend two and a half hours of a Saturday morning to either lead various activities and games in the children’s pediatric cancer ward at the General Hospital or the Wawasan Orphanage.
It may seem like a heavy responsibility, but to me it would be so worth it. They are shaping a child’s mind and subsequently molding them into the person they will become. It will not be easy working their way up and they have to give full effort and attention, but eventually the schooling will pay off and they will be teaching to their best ability. In order to understand what an elementary school teacher
Introduction Enhancing learning for students involves more than just being able to apply general learning and teaching principles or guidelines. In Educational Studies 1: Classroom Learning and Student Development, we have been learned about how students learn. Most importantly, it involves inquiry-based activities which familiarize us with the roles of teachers in promoting learning and catering for student diversity and individual differences. Throughout the past lessons, one of the most influential, inspiring theories is the theories of motivation to understand and improve educational processes, which means helping our students see the true value of what they are doing and giving them reasonable expectation of success in achieving it.
Competencies may be developed, but they are most powerful when used to select people who are already a good fit for the job. It has been recognized that building the capacity of teachers and schools to teach pupils with a diverse range of special educational needs is a key to raising the achievement of these pupils. Zepeda (2008) agrees to the premise that to achieve high qualified teachers, it falls to school leaders to provide professional learning opportunities for teachers that build their capacity to teach ways that are congruent with contemporary understanding about learning, use assessment to inform teaching and meet differing needs. Teachers must once reflect how they are with their teaching. They need to understand and address their strengths and weaknesses using a list of competencies.
Each student is expected to present his/her own reflection on how far tackling of task 1 to 4 will help in making him/her become an effective teacher. Broadly, an effective teacher does not only involve having a deep content knowledge but also organisational, management and communication skills. He/she must be able to organise instructions, provide relevant assessment and fair evaluations. In addition, an effective teacher is responsible to create a warm classroom climate to promote enthusiasm, motivation and an interactive teacher-student relationship. It also implies to be caring and understandable and above all enhance learning.
As a teacher, I have to work hard to enhance my students ' roles in class. First of all, students have to be engaged in the learning process so, in order to achieve that, I must ensure that the classroom is a welcoming and safe environment so students feel accepted and affirmed. Moreover, surveying students favorites would help me to build a connection with students and this suggested information would serve as a motivator for enhancing the academic performance of the students. Learning opportunities must be collaborative so that peer relationships and social skills are active in order to help students to be engaged and motivated. Furthermore, make sure that students ' self-belief is enhanced and they must believe that they are able to learn and deal with failures in order to develop their confidence towards learning.
My schoolmates were people whom I have known since kindergarten. Hamlin High was an exceptional learning environment for me. Also, it is where I learned to get out of my comfort zone and how to interact with new people. My high school years were the finest times of my life because I got to participate in almost every extracurricular activity with my classmates. For example, I was in the Hamlin Marching Green Band, UIL Academics, The National Honor
