I decided that I wanted to be a teacher when I was a pupil at Elementary school. While continuing to enjoy academic life at High School, my ambition to become a teacher was questioned by my parents. Nevertheless, despite their doubts, I followed my dream to become an educator.

For example, I usually foster them to take their learning seriously and be responsible for their language development. Furthermore, I always admire my students when they are willing to take risk and contribute their ideas to the class. Providing them some prizes when they have achieved great things is also effective. Therefore, I have always focused on both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. As a result, students become more active and feel optimistic towards their studies.
Another important goal for me is to help my students gradually become autonomous learners. They should be aware that learning can take place everywhere and learning should not only happen in the classroom. They should bear in mind that they are the main actors in the classroom. They have to determine on their learning outcome. This cannot be done alone and teacher has to support them with great enthusiasm. I will carefully plan the lessons and allow students more choices on their studies. I also aim to give them more project work and tasks so that they can do more research on their own. At the same time, I will focus on assigning them to work collaboratively with their friends in order to build their relationship among them. I plan to help them learn independently by using new technology as well. In order to make it happen, I have prepared a list of good links based on English learning content for them to do self-study at home and in the library. In my class, I would like the

I believe that education is the key in developing today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders. Education is the basis on which individuals develop their self-concept and the desire to become more knowledgeable. I want to become an educator because I am interested in helping elementary students become active learners and also to assist with their social skills. I believe I can make a difference to many students as they start their educational foundation. I feel that all teachers should possess the desire to devote their hard work and efforts to their students’ educational success. I view teaching as not only one of the most respected careers, but also as one in which the rewards are great and many
I have taught students ranging from five years old to nineteen years of age. Hence, being an educator, I have learned that learning is always shifting, therefore I must keep improving with the incessant changes. As a little girl, I have always dreamt of being a teacher and I have carried out that dream. My career journey started as a substitute teacher, a floater between classrooms, an assistant teacher, a teacher, a center supervisor, and an educational supervisor.

It is often said that you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. As true as that is you can still try to make the water look as delicious and rewarding to drink form as possible so the horse will actually want to drink it. Same thing with students, as principle I would make working hard, getting good grades, maintaining good behavior and staying on task look as rewarding as possible. This motivates the students to be and do better, ultimately leading to self-motivation which is what every person should have within themselves to be successful and determined. As principle I would come up with more original fun things like trips, activities and rewards to motivate the students to want to do more. Simple things like that mean a lot to students and make going to school more fun and rewarding. I would make ways to recognize the achievements of student who are doing well so as they feel recognized they want to keep up their good works.

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.
I believe that curriculum should serve diversity of students because each student differs from the other. Since my philosophy aligns with essentialism, I believe that books are helping tools that offer basic knowledge to students, so I will encourage my students to expand the knowledge, which they have studied from the textbooks. As an English teacher I believe in the importance of reading and writing skills because they expand the vocabulary and writing style, which English language follows. I will focus on sustainable development of my students' intellectual abilities through discussion and critical thinking. In addition, I will ask them to read a story, which suits their level, each two weeks then I will ask them analytical questions related to the story. Definitely, visual aid tools such as presentation slides will be used in my classroom in order to facilitate the learning process among my
A driving objective for a teacher is to affect students to advance their expertise in education by finding them the correct course. The teacher should promote positive motivation and inspiration by adhering to legislation and codes of practice which will increase every student’s focus in developing and bridging gaps to display eagerness towards a healthy broad mindset, creative thinking and brighter approach. A mentor should coordinate assessments which will reinforce the ability to perceive individuals’ abilities and knowledge progressions and moreover support them further to boost their learning capacity to acquire a well-established national standards skill set.
My decision to be a teacher did not come easily to me. This choice was dependent on a reflection about what I was passionate about and how I could make a difference. I have chosen to become a teacher, as I believe teachers have the ability to provide future generations the stimulation for one of the most significant roles in life; to become a lifelong learner. Many teachers that I have had during my education have had a positive impact on my decision to grow and develop the skills that are fundamental to pursue a successful teaching career. My aim is to be a part of an honorable profession with the optimism that one day I will become an efficacious teacher who can provide future teachers with inspiration, as my teachers have provided for me. Through personal educational experiences and peer-reviewed academic literature, I am able to shape my approach to my pre-service teaching, as it will influence my future practice. As a teacher, there is not just one singular approach to educating students; there is a need for flexibility, diversity, adaptation and reflection.
1. Autonomous learning is a unique innovative technique which is actively implemented in the academic transaction process. It implies gradual switch from traditional teacher-centered studies to a self-learning process, when students are placed in such conditions where they are to employ their critical thinking, creativity, collaboration and communication skills in addition to the problem-solving skills that will make them experts on a subject studied through project- work, group work etc. For Example- A project on garbage disposal in class V was given to make them learn about environment and sustainability.

A second way to intrinsically motivate students is to “understand the children” (Specific Classroom Management Methods). Originality and creativity should be encouraged in all students. Make a point to give students opportunities to express themselves in different ways. Each child is unique and self-expression is a great way to learn about each and every student. When starting the year, “Knowing what background your students bring to class and starting the course at an appropriate level can increase a students success and…positive feelings they have about your
