She always know which student needs extra help with which subject. She tries to differentiate when she teaches and be sure that she is getting to her students’ level of understanding and teach them from that point, rather than just making them get to her level, hoping that they will understand what she wants them to understand. According to my interviewee building a positive environment in the class and with colleagues
Furthermore, the opportunity to student teach will provide me with a strong foundation to become the best teacher I can. I believe that I am prepared to embark on this new endeavor because I am ready to continue to learn about teaching from the teaching field, fellow teachers and most importantly my students. Throughout my education and SLS courses, I have been exposed to different information that have prepared me for this next step in my academic career. I 've also gained deeper knowledge of content and about the materials to used

Student teaching has fanned the fire of my passion for being a teacher and been a light onto the path of how to become the best I can be. Reflecting on each experience, the successful and the not so successful, has encouraged me to continue to persevere and grow from these challenges. Not only did I discover a great deal about teaching but I also learned a great deal about myself. I was able to surpass all the challenges that I have faced. I touch the lives of my students and to be part of them even in a very little way.
They also make sure no student is working ahead of the class. So that everyone is on the same page. That way the class can work together and help each other out if needed. The high school instructors have a lot more rules for their classrooms unlike college instructors. They have more say so in what the students can and cannot do while in their class.
Creating relationships with students helps them feel safe in their environment and comfortable talking to the teacher. It is not the job of the teacher to butt heads with the students. The teacher needs to control their sarcasm and use “positive psychology”. Positive psychology acknowledges a student’s negative skill and creates something positive out of it. For example: if a student is a class clown, the teacher would admire the student by complementing them.
I also know that it is ok to like kids that you know are really great. I know that all educators constantly make changes to improve the lives of their students. So now I am asking for one more change, a change that is simple but not easy but could cause and astounding change for so many. All I am asking you to do is to stop asking students, “What did you do this time?” Assume that all students are in the right and if they aren’t work towards resolution and not humiliation. Let them know that .you don’t have to fit in “somewhere” to fit in at your own high school.
I always knew teaching is my passion. It is my responsibility to be organized, willing to work well with others, takes initiative, and having a positive attitude. During my time in the field, I had a pleasure of working with 3rd graders. I learned to be a long life learner. Everyday, I was challenged my students to learn something new.
Teaching requires passion and inspiration. If you do not love teaching, it is so hard to become an effective teacher. Also it makes you upset and exhausted in few years. Effective teaching will be acquired of course if you love what your doing. I read a quote saying that "The only way to do great work is to love what you do."
