I hope to someday be a teacher that when a child grows up they still remember fondly. I want to teach so that I can create an inclusive classroom environment that is perfect for learning. My goal is to get students excited to learn. I will accommodate to all of my students according to their individual needs. I aspire to be a teacher who respects their students and gets respect back.
For participatory learning to take place teachers need to be an intentional teacher somebody who wants a child to be involved in the learning process. A teacher should sometimes control the learning process but other times allow the children to lead the learning process. We must get involved in the children’s activities and let them know that we are interested in their opinion and thoughts. We as teachers should encourage the child to speak up explore and experiment. We have to ensure that a classroom is hygienic safe and fun, it should be a high quality learning environment.
A very important phrase in the Montessori philosophy is: “Teach me how to do it myself”. For educators this means that students should not only learn to work independently, but more importantly they should help students learn to think independently as well. In her observations Montessori noticed that young children in their drive to become independent use their different senses to
As a teacher, I will be responsible for the development of each of my students for that year. Not only will I need to ensure that they are meeting academic standards, I will also need to help them develop socially and emotionally. In order to do this effectively, there are several key factors that I must consider. First, I will have to consider how to teach them in a way that allows all of the students to learn effectively. I will also have to consider how to assess their knowledge, manage their behavior, create a positive environment, and implement technology in order to enhance their learning.
Educators … pass on knowledge and values with their words; but their words will have an incisive effect on children and young people if they are accompanied by their witness, their consistent way of life. School can and must be a catalyst, it must be a place of encounter and convergence of the entire educating community, with the sole objective of training and helping to develop mature people who are simple, competent and honest, who know how to love with fidelity, who can live life as a response to God’s call, and their future profession as a service to
My perspective on teaching is giving a great sense of confidence to students. I believe that the main purpose of education is to motivate and prepare students for their future and as a teacher I hope to be able to influence them and help them understand what education can do for their future. My aim is to transmit knowledge to my students so they can use it in their future career and personal lives. This knowledge taught should allow them to think and act independently. I want them to learn how important is for them to find out who they really are and improve upon themselves.
With me being the teacher, I would make sure I come up with fun and exciting lessons to keep the students engaged. I will always make sure my students have something to do. For my students who misbehave, I will want to understand personally about why they are behaving that way. “I communicate with them in a caring way. I use every opportunity to help them develop self confidence” (Gionett).
School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
I will teach to diverse cultures and communities to which my students belong. I will ensure that each student is included in my future classroom and is able to reach their fullest potential. I believe in learning who my students and individually setting higher standards for each will allow them to be successful in school and later in life. Knowing and understanding all of this will help me enable each learner to meet their higher individual standards. My artifact is a PowerPoint over Learning Diversity.
My focus will be instilling knowledge and love for the subject. I will make effort to learn about my student’s interest and linked it to my lessons making it joyful and engaging. By doing so, I reaffirm that the content that I am teaching will reach out to them easily. I strongly believe that all my students are willing to learn. Being a beginning teacher, I should avoid situations where my students think that I have little knowledge on the subject.
