According to an article “The Value of Education,” by Russell Taylor, there are two reasons behind this attitude – the lack of family values and the lack of responsibility taken by many kids. Kids often do not appreciate the value of education they are receiving. Parents have a lot of responsibilities in drilling to their kids the importance of education for their future. Taylor notes that “If children are do not understand how important school is, chances are they will not succeed when they are adults” (64). Parents need to remind their kids the motivation and discipline it takes to succeed in school.
The final reason that led me to college is to experience the" life of as a college student". I have learned that college is nothing compared to high school. Being a college student is not easy, it is about learning from others, learning how to become independent and following your dreams. I will continue to keep working hard and get myself a step closer each day to my dream career. To sum everything up college is an opportunity that not everyone has, so being able to attend college is a blessing that no one should take for granted.
Everyday, I was challenged my students to learn something new. It was important to me to make a difference. Throughout my training, I implemented various strategies for engaging students in small groups and rigorous lessons. My role as a teacher is to communicate effectively, be respectful, and have self-worth and confidence. I did fear making wrong choices throughout this field experience.
One important goal for me is to go to college so I can have a good education, become more social, and find something I want to do when I grow up. (5) First, education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. Going to college will give you a better chance of having a good education which will then turn into you being a more educated and sophisticated person. I think being a more intelligent human by going to college will make you more well rounded when it comes to life and anything else that you try to achieve. Another reason to have a good education is to learn more about the world we live in.
One important thing that I learned was that, teachers don’t just need to teach based on the book. As a teacher we also need to teach our students the good attitude in all aspects. We need to build a good person for a better future. Based on my experience students need to feel that they were appreciated and loved by their teachers, as their second parent in school, they are looking for love and concern from their teachers. I can say that teaching students is like planting a tree,
In the lives of every single person, education is being taught in a variety of ways. (The Value of Education). By learning through experiences and communicating with each other. As the growth of maturity and intelligence develops, education is proving to be the key to a better future. After high school, the big decision will be decided whether college is worth the choice and, yes it is.
True purpose of education is to make minds, not careers. - William Deresiewics When we first start going to high school the first thing that our elders tell us is that we better do good from this point on because it decides what we are going to do and be when we get out of school. For us teen-agers we want to enjoy life before we start acting like adults because when that time comes we won 't be able to enjoy life in school. School to teenagers is way to spend time with friends but we also somehow no matter what time we have to get up in the morning we make school fun. Adults tell us that we need to get a job during high school so that we would know how to depend on ourselves but is that what we really need.
The majority of students find it boring and difficult. More often than not, I get asked the question, when will we ever need to know this? In all my lessons, I take this on board and my aim is to be enthusiastic and make the students see maths in a different light. My goal as a teacher is to inspire my students, like my maths teacher inspired me and ignite a love for maths in them. 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.
