Today was my first day in my elementary education field placement, which was in Kindergarten. I did not know what to expect in the Kindergarten classroom, so I went with my knowledge learned from my textbooks. The classroom was a warm and inviting room that made you feel happy and comfortable. The classroom was filled with brightly colored posters that pertained to many different academic content such as a number line, an alphabet, a calendar, different vin diagram charts, how to make words by letters chart, math procedures, ways to read, need to know words, how to sound out words, and a behavior chart. The room was like a magic learning palace.
My student teaching experience in Dutton Christian as a student teacher has equipped me to teach in the kindergarten setting. I love working with young children because they are in their years of greatest curiosity. Also, I have taught kindergarten in the summer. Kindergarten teachers can bring joy and beauty, mystery and delight into the hearts of little people.
Why is teaching an important profession to me? Life is about something, but what it is about for me it is the passing of knowledge that will make society move forward. Without the teacher, we would be in the dark, because, the light of someone teaching would not be. We would not advance as a society, on Medicare or agricultural advances.
My Christian faith has been a cornerstone throughout my life, calming and supporting me within the trials of life. My faith has reminded me and taught me, that my achievements are not my own, rather, they are a gift from God. This is something I have often struggled with, pride controlling and limiting the growth within my life. However, through the refinement of my faith, as well as having great mentors and examples, I now understand that these gifts I have are given, are gifts, not a result of anything I have done or could do. Within the classroom, my faith aids me as it reminds me that I am called to work heartily in all areas of life, in addition to being a good steward of the abilities which God has given to me. Throughout the stressful times and the hard times I can also remember that God is going to love me no matter what, and perhaps remembering this, and keeping
Working with children and supporting their learning is my passion. I have always been inspired by the opportunity teaching offers each child to reach their full potential; which understandably plays a crucial part in children achieving lifelong learning.
How often do passion and profession come together? Upon first entering college, I struggled deciding at such a young age what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Through babysitting and volunteering with pre-school aged children at my church and through a school program called STARS, it became evident to me I had a love for helping children. It fascinated me to see how they viewed the world around them and how quickly they learned new truths everyday. Nevertheless, I knew I would not get the full enjoyment interacting with children as a schoolteacher because the teacher to student ratio is so large. Classroom demands would make it much more difficult to devot individualized attention to each student, and I did not like that concept. So
Saint Margaret School has a great impact on my faith. Each Day, I feel that we are growing closer and closer to God. God is extremely important in my life because He keeps me strong. When I feel that everything is wrong in my life, I pray to Him. Praying to God is important because, “God surely listens, understands and knows the hopes and fears you keep in your heart. For when you trust in His love, miracles happen.~unknown” God is also important to me because He has given us His one and only Son so that anyone who believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. This shows how much He truly cares for us.
The reason I think I would be a good teaching assistant is because I have the fundamental of helping out the lead teacher. Recently I had to write a essay on why I wanted to be a teacher. So down below is my essay on why I want to become
Do you remember a time when you were young, maybe around first grade? The teacher asked everyone what they wanted to be when they grow up. Some children said they wanted to be doctors or firefighters or even an astronaut. I said I wanted to help others learn; I wanted
As I walk into the classroom, the first graders' faces light up with smiles of eagerness. They are genuinely enthusiastic to start their homework with my help and rush over with their worksheets and freshly sharpened pencils. As I help them with their math or reading, many of the kids divulge details about their lives at home.
Children, have always had a special place in my heart. There is something about the glow in a child’s eyes that makes me want to help them in any way I can. I have always heard about God moving in people’s lives, however after babysitting teacher’s children afterschool when I was in elementary school, to helping teaches a little girl we homeschooled a while back, I had not seen Him move that much in the lives of children’s I came in contact with.
Through my experience working with kids and my courses at Austin Community College and Concordia University I’ve established a philosophy of education that I intend to use in my future classroom. Being entrusted with shaping young minds, but also sculpting these children and lighting their way is an enormous responsibility
Hi Peeps, Today's Quote "Making yourself valuable to your family and society by studying, learning, growing, earning, helping, giving and saving, is important, but first your must follow the wonderful wisdom of God to retain, teach, and give true love value in your lifestyle and generations to come." ~ Jon Barnes
Preschool teachers play an important role in developing children's interest in learning. Children learn through various techniques and activities, such as games, group play, artwork and music, preschool teachers instruct in reading, writing and basic math concepts. Preschool teachers also encourage creativity and social interaction. Preschool teachers need to be eager participants in children's growth and development, as well as helping students understand how to use their natural curiosity to help make the appropriate developmental leaps in their skills and
