While growing up and observing my teachers at school, I have learned that it isn’t always an easy job. Teachers do everything they can to teach their students’ academic, social and other formative skills. Plenty of my teachers have to deal with complications, most of them being minor, but it isn’t always an easy job helping children, teens and young adults. As a student myself, I know they can be stubborn, unwilling to learn, aggressive, and irresponsible. Sometimes, they simply don’t care. However, that is a teacher's purpose: to help and shape their students to become better learners, so that they have a clearer understanding regarding a variety of subject matters. Someday, I actually want to become an elementary art teacher, which is
What do you want to be when you grow up? This is a common question people ask children and young adults; however, for me this was never a simple question to answer. The notion of picking just one profession that you will essentially do for the rest of your life is scary! It has taken me years to find the answer to that question, but I have finally decided that I want to be a teacher when I grow up. The main reasons I want to be a teacher is because I thoroughly enjoying working with children, I want to make a difference in young children’s lives, and because of the scheduling of the profession.
Needless to say, I knew nothing about teaching... and felt truly horrible about it. I searched for help and support, reached out to other teachers, administrators, the district, the board of education. For the most part mild concern and no effective action was the common response. If it weren't for one wonderful teacher who took me under her wing, for no extra pay of course, I am sure I would have given up.
I always thought I would be a teacher and I would make differences in lives and it would be the greatest experience in the world for me, yet being a teacher wasn’t enough, I had a need to expand my education. I decided that perhaps I needed a new career, however, I felt certain education remained my passion. I began to explore new areas of education and I realized I still want to be a member of a classroom, a school and curriculum. I aspire to guide those leading our classrooms.
Becoming a high school teacher had always been the goal. As a young child and growing up with a multitude of siblings, children were my life. The aspiration stemmed from a desire to teach the next generation, to be a leader for the mind and guide them onto the next phase of their lives. I saw my favorite teachers do it with the kind of patience and discipline that only a teacher could have and after job shadowing Scott Hatfield, the social studies and current events teacher at Summit Academy North Muddle School, I realized that I am not fit for that lifestyle like I thought.
Being a teacher can give you a rollercoaster of emotions. There are so many ups and downs to think about when considering the profession of teaching. Being in a classroom full of students with very different backgrounds, ideas, attitudes and personalities could be a lot to juggle for someone who isn’t ready to handle it. I think in this case it would be pretty hard to make sure each and every one of your students is happy and successful 100% of the time. But there are certain cases where you can be that teacher that lifts a student up and makes them forget about all of their external issues and makes school their happy place.
Growing up, I had such big hopes and dreams for myself. As a child, I always aspired to be a teacher because I loved telling people what to do and taking charge. I am the oldest child and would always have to help my brother with his homework and teach him how to do things around the house. I remember how I enjoy quizzing him for his spelling tests. Unfortunately, life did not go as planned and I ended up taking the wrong path in life. However, 13 years and 3 kids later I decided to return to college.
Before I wanted to be a teacher but like many people was teachers don't get payed that much. I love to work will kids and I think I work well with kids to. Soon I stumbled on the idea of finding something that works with kids and a pediatrician sounded perfect. There is only one problem with wanting to become a pediatrician you have to do 8 years of collage. That's a lot of years but I'll do it if I really love it. I'm still young I have time to think or stick to this dream or pick a new one Roman Atwood taught me that I can do or be anything I want and I plan to follow my
There are a vast amount of jobs that constantly cross my mind, but there is only one that I would have to consider calling my "dream job". My dream job is to one day become a course instructor for the Colorado Outward Bound School. Outward Bound is a character development school that uses high impact activities in a wilderness setting to teach human skills such as, leadership, communication, and teamwork. Current educational studies are showing the importance of character education and predicting people's successes. Not just predicting their success by what their salary is, but more like how likely they are to be in a healthy relationship, do they do work that they love, and
Since I was a child I always had a 3 goals in life, one was to become a veterinarian, second was to be a teacher, and my last one is to become a health care administrator.
My first goal as a leader is to advance the HMC students in helping them understand how to work as a team, having a heart that puts Him first, and reaching their potential as artists. My second goal is to keep learning myself because the more I understand and know the better I can lead. I am willing to put in whatever I need to in order to help the
Schools do have great teachers, even though, bad ones are still in the school districts. Loving to learn really makes students strive for more. Schools need to do a better job of getting rid of the teachers that are just there for the pay check and not about the student’s progress. I know that some parents have complained about bad teachers in my old high school, but they still sit in the classroom teaching nothing. Teaching students that it is great to be the over achievers and be involved in a club that they are interested in. Schools have too many cases, students are told that they are horrible at a subject and that makes students not want to try in that subject anymore. Schools need to teach students that school is not a place to hate and that everyone has incredible potential. If schools taught more as Sean, schools would be very different. Teachers need to not shut students loving to learn down because then schools would be a place to get an education, rather than a place to dread going
I learned quickly that being an effective teacher is an art that takes time and devotion. Many times, teachers are not provided with the necessary materials in order to maintain the various learning styles in a classroom. It is up to the teacher to create an environment where students can succeed. This is a full time job, meaning that a teacher’s work is not done once they leave the school. A teacher must contribute a significant amount of time and effort in order to see positive results in the school and in his or her own classroom. After observing my cooperating teacher’s strategies and learning more about the profession, I knew that I was going in the right direction with my life. I took a significant amount of knowledge away from this experience and have continued to strive to be the type of educator that I was blessed to work with during this experience. .
Almost all of my goals involve me being in a leadership position, whether it is on the volleyball court, in the classroom, or in my future career. My ultimate goal as an RMU athlete is to be the leader and teammate I know
