It wasn't until she went to do fieldwork in schools, that she decided to become a teacher. She realized, through inspiring teachers and students she worked with, that she wanted to do just what every teacher that inspired her to do. She wants to be seen as a positive role model to her students and teach them how to cooperate with each one another. She wants to leave the great impact that each of her teachers has left on her, and she wants to have a positive impact on their lives. Getting to know a student and understanding their lives and possible hardships they face, can have a huge impact on how a student views you. Being there for your student, being supportive, being understanding, are just a few qualities all teachers should
The teachers profiled in “Unforgettable Miss Bessie”, “My Favorite Teacher”, and “And the Orchestra Played On” are remembered and admired by the narrators. Miss Bessie, Miss Hattie, and Mr. K. possessed significant qualities that made them remarkable educators. They inspired and encouraged students. They only wanted the best for their students and prepared them for their futures, enabling them to overcome difficulties in school. Besides the content of their subject matter these educators their taught students to believe that their lives and future all depends from themselves: whether they would choose the clean asphalt road or dirty, bumpy one.
She was unapologetic about treating her students, especially her honors ones, like adults. She was strict about plagiarism and demanded our full efforts. Within our social studies curriculum, she found ways to infuse valuable life lessons and talk
I have always found Ms. Branson to be committed to helping our student and any teacher that requests her help. She helped facilitate our study club at Otis for the 5th, 6th and 7th graders for the last year we had the 7th and 8th graders at our elementary schools. She always began by creating relationships with all students she worked with by praising their successes and
Through twelve years of school the teacher that stands out is my band teacher, Amanda Posey. She made me a better person, helped me grow up, and taught me many skills that I will use. She has made a positive impact and difference on my life. Posey has a passion for teaching music, teaches life lessons, and challenges her students making her an amazing teacher.
I go to Thornapple Kellogg High School in Middleville, Michigan. Everyone here is usually pretty kind, but there is one person who has helped me excel with my learning and that is my AP statistics teacher Mrs. Wilkinson. Mrs. Wilkinson is a lot more caring than she appears. She really idolizes about her students and how they learn. Mrs. Wilkinson always asks us how our lives are going and what we want to do. She loves to connect with her students on a personal level and is interested in our well being. Her teaching methods always connect with something that she knows we’ll understand. Although she may not seem like the most heartwarming teacher, but she really cares about our well-being.
I’ve had the most compassionate and intelligent teacher in the whole Bulloch County area and if you could meet her than you would without a doubt agree with me. Mrs. Amanda Battles has been teaching multiple classes throughout the school but I foremost think of her as my Model UN and Latin teacher. There have been moments in her class where I would struggle to complete her work but she doesn’t scold me like any normal teacher would. She encourages me and pushes me to do my absolute best without any hidden, personal agenda. I’ve had her for multiple years now, ever, since my freshman year of high school and currently, I’m a junior. I can honestly say that no other teacher would be a better nomination for being the best teacher and any other
Honorable teachers are those who are a daily encouragement and inspiration and it commonly goes unappreciated. However, the gratitude I feel toward Diane Starkey is insurmountable because of the significant impact she has made in my life. Starkey has given me wisdom in her classroom, advice for life, and taken me by the hand and been one of the most remarkable friends I have had.
There were many things that I liked that Mrs. Durbin did in the classroom and there were also things that I did not necessarily agree with. One thing that I really loved and I watched her do while I was observing her is the way she handled a new student that the school knew nothing about. This student has Autism and during the first couple of weeks, he was very on edge. The littlest things in the classroom would set him off. I remember one morning he
Throughout the years we have taught together, I have come to admire Kristin’s dedication, enthusiasm, and professionalism. She goes above and beyond what is expected of teachers, which is evident in her instructional practices. Her genuine concern for the success of all of her students is another part of what makes her an exceptional teacher. She thoroughly enjoys teaching English Language Arts and spends countless hours planning, organizing, and preparing innovative lessons that ensure all of her students are successful, yet challenged. She is always seeking out new methods, ideas, and resources, which are actively engaging and elicit students’ curiosity and excitement for learning. Kristin always conducts herself if a professional manner and is natural leader on our campus. She willingly takes on extra responsibilities; for instance, she is the PBIS facilitator for St. Amant Middle School. Kristin is a respected educator and an asset to our school, and district.
Amanda Copeland contains soft and hard leadership skills, which allow interacting with her to be pleasant in both working alongside of and in observing her teaching Students. She possesses the presence to control the attention of everyone in a crowded room, but also the demeanor to be approached about the most personal one-to-one consoling. Throughout her
more like a mother or a friend to the children than the teacher she is
I remember going into Ms. Blackmore’s office to go over my first big English paper as a middle school student. I was so nervous my hands were clammy and my knees were shaking. I had heard so much about Ms. Blackmore and most of it was bad. I heard she was very cruel when it came to critiquing papers and I could only imagine what she was going to do when she read over my paper. As she stared at it for what seemed like an eternity, she screeched out the worst laugh I have ever heard. It wasn’t like she was laughing because she thought it was funny she was laughing because how pathetic it was. I felt absolutely awful because I knew the grade wasn’t going to be pretty and Ms. Blackmore thought I was an idiot.
Her class of teachers take their jobs very seriously, and do not tolerate students who skip or disrupt their classes. These teachers are fun, because once you get them off on some irrelevant tangent, they will keep themselves going on it for entire class segments, trying to get out years of thought and consideration in just a short period of time. This is how I got to know my psychology teacher, because I was the one who kept her talking, so that the class could avoid taking the quiz that none of us had studied for. Teachers like her have the innate gift to educate and entertain, with their comprehensive lessons and subtle quirks.
The integration of technology has help society to improve as itself, it means in social, cultural and economic aspects. What concern teachers, is how technology and this “knowledge society” might help the teaching-learning process inside the classroom. So, in order to continue improving society and specially the educational field we must consider what means to educate in knowledge society, how to teach in it and finally what skills are needed to know how to integrate technology inside the classroom.
