Knowing that the EYP leadership has traditionally been linked with the personal qualities of the workforce (Ritchie, 2015), helped me understood the concept of teachers as leaders as I studied and reflected on how to manage the different characteristics of my team along the journey. Besides, I also ensured that my team stood by the school’s principle of having the voice of the children taken seriously. Therefore, we managed to involve the children’s views and participation especially from the K2 and K3 levels because they were more vocal and initiative. Change 1: To redo the old learning boards I first observed the setting to learn the areas that needed improvement (Campbell-Barr and Leeson, 2016). I also used an environmental checklist (Appendix 1.1) as a justification to the facts that I discovered.
As a teacher, it is my responsibility to share information on the development of the child and have a clear and constant flow of dialogue with the family. This will enable both parties to deal with any issues that may arise within the family, school or community. It also my belief that parents should have an active part in their child’s learning and be able to lend a hand whenever necessary, and having open communication with them will allow this transparency and connection between home and school. The community is vital in ensuring that the facilities around the community and school is appropriate for the different children and families to live in and grow. A very good example of this successful collaboration is the Reggio Emilia approach in Italy.
Programs range from outdoor learning classrooms that support STEM curriculum for schools, outdoor sports and recreation, ecology and natural resource activities and adventure programs including wilderness-based activities. Using reinforcement theory concepts in this field of study would be beneficial in overcoming barriers such as mindsets, skills, safe practices and personal knowledge. Five behavior theories that outdoor education teachers can embrace and integrate into the outdoor program areas are instrumental learning, chaining, shaping, cueing and social cognitive theory. Instrumental learning can be

My college career has been devoted to learning how to become a teacher. I 've taken a variety of courses that not only have exposed me to new content, but to a new perspective about education. I have learned about the teaching strategies, techniques and approaches that make a great teacher. Student teaching will enable me to put them into practice. Furthermore, the opportunity to student teach will provide me with a strong foundation to become the best teacher I can.
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 was to discover the way I learn. This was hard for me I do not like to evaluate my self but in order to be a good teacher I must attain the abilty to self-evalute in order to grow.

In this era of testing and school reform, many schools are looking for ways to make their teaching practices more effective and collaborative. One way this can happen is through the use of Professional Learning Communities (PLCs).
I have learnt that there are many ways a child 's development and play are benefited by outdoor play. This is supported by http://www.nct.org.uk (accessed 12/02/2018), which states that "This is important as ... children learn and gain experience through all their senses". It was the staggering amount of benefits that outdoor play had, that has made me realise the importance, and how it will be important to encourage other professionals to use outdoor play more during lessons. It has also made me think about how researching other theorists about play can help me develop my own practice for the future. By researching other theorists, I can get an understanding of what outdoor equipment would benefit the children within my care, which would then mean their play and development is more effective.
