Teaching is one of the most underrated professions in the workforce, without the guidance of a teacher writing this paper would have been impossible. I believe the Teacher Cadet program is a truly significant program that not only teaches but gives first-hand experience in the importance of being a teacher, As well as show the set of challenges that many academic professionals face in the classroom environment. I believe taking part in such an outstanding program will help me gain many attributes, learn a certain level of professionalism, as well as develop social skills that will help me understand how to deal with different kinds of people that hold different types of perspectives. Taking part in this will, in turn, make my goals more obtainable in the future.

Hearing the word “teaching” makes me think about something great, such as dedication and contribution. In my opinion, teaching means sharing everything positive to others in order to develop those people, such as knowledge and moral values. Even conveying light advice and motivation can be counted as a worthy lesson. By teaching, the teacher also can obtain a lot of benefits. Firstly, teacher may obtain knowledge that she or he did not know before from the students. Secondly, teacher’s communication skill may be improved by doing intensive interaction with the students. Lastly, teacher may get many psychological values, such as patience, passion, joy, and satisfaction. Considering those benefits, I would like to take every opportunity to teach.
During the summer between my sophomore and junior years, I was one of four students selected to represent my school and council at the National Josten’s Renaissance conference in Orlando Florida. My fellow students and I learned a great deal about other schools around the country and we wanted to take some ideas back to our school to implement them. One of our key ideas focused on recognizing various students at our high school that constantly achieve remarkable feats, but largely go unnoticed by the school as a whole. Being vice president of my class, I took charge of this initiative and designed a solution to the problem. I advocated that we replace our typical, mundane, class meetings with class rallies, a pep rally type atmosphere for more
Is it still cool to be in school? What if, I told you that we are going to figure out how to create a balance of working a job, maintaining an active social life with friends or family, and working towards a bachelor’s degree? To me, it sounds demanding and stressful. However, I believe there is always a bright light at the end of the tunnel. Finding the right structure is an important aspect of achieving your goals without causing unpredictable dilemmas. I’ve managed to work my way through the challenges that everyday life can create for you. I have found a sense of organization with getting school work accomplished successfully, and you will too. With three simple steps this guide will help you prioritize, set up goals for yourself, and maintain
Paid teacher’s assistants and paraprofessionals were looked at as a belittlement in society. But people do not realize that extra help in the classroom doubles the expectation of students and schools. These figures lack in bigger schools and are almost never heard of in college. Paraprofessionals can work one on
We as humans are responsible for the categories that we make. In all reality, the titles mean only what we attribute to them. Being in the education field, I've seen the strain that teacher assistants (paraprofessionals) go through when they are working. They are often treated less than important, and certainly compensated less than their counterparts. Teacher assistants are looked at as not being certified, but many of them hold bachelors and some masters in other areas. Because of this status, they aren't even deem important enough to get a full time position, as most of them are part time. I was once in that situation when I initially started and I was treated at times incompetent or inferior. I use all of my previous experiences to formulate
The skills and attributes of an outstanding student support educator are those that are reflected by outstanding teachers. Because educating our children is a task that challenges professionals to vary instruction according to needs, those working in the field of education must possess a broad range of skills and attributes to be outstanding in their field. Character traits of outstanding educators include: respect for others, professionalism, flexibility, understanding, and passion combined with a love for learning.
The high school student is involved with tons of activities from sports to clubs and tutoring. Limiting the week to four days will mess up everyone's schedule, especially the parents and students. Cutting the school week down to four days will hurt students more than it will help. Shortening the week will affect Friday night sport games and practices, the transportation of students , and having a taxing day.
My most vivid memory of intermediate school, was walking on the red carpet on the first day of fifth grade. At the time, I felt so grown up and mature. Come to realize, I was only ten years old. On the first day, I was so nervous to meet all of the new people that were coming from other elementary schools. Looking back, I shouldn't have been so nervous because I’m sure all of the other kids felt the same way. During those years, I met countless friends including Jayden, Makayla, Ali, Ally, Emily and so many others that I would still consider my friends.
When I think of the word academy, I think of bettering your education on a path that better prepares you for your specific career interests. At an academy that is exactly what I am looking for. My goals for attending an academy, is to take classes that challenge my interests and to come out of the experience, better prepared for the life, I specifically, want to live. I am not looking for your average high school experience. My hope is that the academy system will set me on a path filled with, yes, the average school requirements, but also classes and extracurricular activities that will better my learning in a field that I am actually interested in. When I come out of the academy , my goals are to come out a changed person, to be able to
As a student, people always tend to ask me what I am going to school for, and when my answer is education their immediate reaction is, “Are you sure you want to do that?” After reassuring them that it’s definitely what I want to do they continue to ask me what grade I would like to teach. When I tell them middle grades they really start questioning my decision, but my question to them is why not? I love the students’ personalities at this age and I love how vulnerable but at the same time independent they can be.
I plan to major in middle level education after high-school graduation, which encompasses fifth through the eighth grade. I love working with younger children and helping them while teaching. From personal experience from being a student, I love seeing the proverbial “light bulb” go off when something difficult is finally understood. I understand how much of importance education serves in our community and the world. Regardless of the salary I would potentially receive, I want to have a role of impacting on future generations and be an agent of change. I wish to make a positive difference in the lives of others which is very rewarding and important to me. I myself, enjoy working with people, while I enjoy learning on my own as well, which are
In my childhood in Mexico I said bye to many of my friends because they were moving on to the US, my mom told me that they were looking for a better opportunity in life, but in that moment I didn’t understand what does that mean but now when I’m in the US looking for the same opportunity I can understand everything.
