I would like to be a teacher because I have always been the one that’s eager to make a difference, I want to be the teacher that children remember for the rest of their life even after school. The love that I have always had for children is what drew me to teaching and the love that I have for learning is where I got my passion to teach. I have been inspired by many teachers in the past who has had a positive impact on my life and these are the ones that I have viewed as a mentor, leader and even as a parent. One particular reason that I chose to pursue a career in the education field is because I believe that when teachers work individually and collectively they have the ability to improve and change the world.
Firstly, as Napoleon Hill once said "It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed", I want to be able to directly provide support for new undergraduates and help them achieve their academic goals as a senior student. As a person who enjoys learning individuals' studying style and discovering different ways of teaching to help others reach their full potential, I believe that there is no job as rewarding as teaching. The satisfying feeling a teaching assistant can gain from helping students who have trouble learning is truly incomparable. Moreover, being a upperclassmanot only do I want share my amazing experience and advice for the new undergraduates but also as many students may feel intimidating to talk to the professors, I want to become a perfect link between the professor and students as well.
I would like to pursue a career in Elementary Education focusing on Kindergarten through second grade. I am going to be the first of my family to achieve a higher level of education after high school. I feel that being born and raised in Mountain Grove has given me values that I want to hold on to for the rest of my life. I have been a nurturing person for as long as I can remember and have strived to be a person that my younger sibling and cousins can look up to in life. I want to be an elementary teacher for many of the following reasons.
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.
“Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing,” said Hunter S. Thompson. A passion is something that motivates you. Something that pushes you in life. Ever since I was little I loved playing softball. Now as a Senior I am still continuing my love for softball by playing on varsity. Another thing I love is being able to impact a person's life. I plan on doing this by becoming an elementary school teacher and continuing to be a volunteer firefighter. I'm passionate and motivated by softball, continuing to be a firefighter, and becoming a teacher.
I graduated from George County High School in May of 2013. My freshman year of college I attended South Alabama and struggled terribly. Due to personal issues I transferred to Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, and am now back at South for my junior year. I plan to begin candidacy in the fall of next year and receive my bachelors in Elementary Education. I hope to one day receive my masters and my bachelors in child psychology.
Many students come into an engineering program without a strong commitment to stay in an engineering course and to progress with an engineering degree. For students to achieve the puzzling goal of graduating in engineering requires a strong obligation, and behaviors and attitudes to follow through that obligation. To brace the commitment of the freshman engineering students an innovative project has been developed. The project dares students to develop their process to become a "World-Class Engineering Student". Having freshman engineering students design their individually custom-made learning process as part of a semester long project in the setting of a student achievement focused introduction to engineering course or any freshman engineering course will have an important impact on their academic triumph by improving the students’ confidence and motivation to succeed in engineering. This workshop will show participants how to implement the "Design your Process to become a World-Class Engineering Student" into their own introduction to engineering courses. The first year is the most important time for the Engineering Student .In this duration, student has to entirely set up his/her objectives after the exhaustive research like if someone wants to become a quality control engineer in the world level organization for this he should read about the future and scope of his relevant job position by taking the counsel from alumni, teacher or Senior Quality control engineer having
My career aspirations are to work with, help, and mold students and children as a future educator and ultimately, an administrator. I hope to follow in the footsteps of my mother and keep the tradition alive of being a college graduate and a teacher. As a Hispanic, being a second generation college student and receiving higher education has always been an established priority of mine. As a future high school teacher, I plan to help urban and underprivileged students reach their highest potential. I’d like to somehow participate in changing the stereotypical cycle of discontinued education among these individuals and their families. Living in a diverse community, I’ve witnessed a stigma and cycle of undervaluing
As a little girl, I always played to be a teacher, but I never thought that one day being a teacher was going to be my goal. Now, I do not see myself with a different career other than working as a teacher. I like to help people with whatever I can, and I knew that I wanted a career where I can contribute to the community. However, I was not sure what kind of career was ideal for me. During my high school years, I debated between different professions, but thanks to some great teachers that I had, I was able to decide that I want to be an elementary teacher.
I’ve encountered many challenges in education that began in Elementary School as I struggled with reading at a young age. Extra work at home in the early grades helped me overcome this issue; however, recently divorced parents split six kids across two states which was the beginning of a long and grueling custody battle. Real issues didn’t develop until Middle School as home life spiraled out of control I barely passed eighth grade after completing some last minute work to graduate to High School. High School was brief; I earned my GED while working full time and saving money for the future. On the day my classmates were graduating I packed my car and started my drive to Steamboat Springs, CO. It was there that my education truly began.
I am single and do not have any kids. I am going into teaching because I have always had a desire to work with youth. I have six years of experience working with kids in a variety of settings. I worked at a daycare for two years, volunteered at Iowa Western Community College and the Ellis I. Levitt Boys and Girls Club for a year. I now currently a sub for Grand Prairie Independent School District. This year marks my second year as a substitute teacher in the district. The career path of a teacher has crossed my path many times. I decided last year, after subbing for a year that becoming a teacher has always been a part of my destiny. I plan to be the individual leading educational activities in a classroom setting, addressing disciplinary concerns,
Ever since I was a young child, I was curious about the past, and how was it like living back in time. I would even imagine myself experiencing living in the past. Eventually, my curiosity developed into an interest in history, as I wanted to have a better knowledge and understanding of the past. Because of this, I decided to set my goals of becoming a teacher, in hopes of being informed in history. However, after mentoring high school students, my goal of becoming a teacher became deeper than history. I concluded that I wanted to work with children and being a teacher would be the perfect place for my passion in working and mentoring to the youth.
Ideally, when I graduate, I would like to enter the credential program at Cal Poly Pomona. As an English Education major, I feel like this is the next logical step for me as I seek to move forward on my path of becoming a teacher. The opportunities that await me in the credential program truly excite me because I have always found my studies of English Education to be very rewarding and purposeful. I have found this to be especially true now because I am currently in the process of conducting observation hours at local high schools in Pomona as part of my English Education curriculum. When I am in the classroom, I immediately feel a sense of joy, purpose, and productivity. Outside of the classroom, I do have experience teaching as a leader for a club on campus; I am a Woman’s Bible Study Leader for Cal Poly Cru and I have found this experience of teaching college students to be the most exciting, challenging, and rewarding experience I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. It can become overwhelming as doubts and deadlines tend to sneak in on me from time to time, but I know that being a teacher is worth every ounce of pressure because of the positive impact that a teacher has the ability to make on a student. There is an incredible statistic that states that “On average a teacher affects 3,000 children over the course of their career” (Bickley). This opportunity stirs my heart like nothing else because when I was in high school, I had an incredible teacher named
What does it mean when someone tell you they want to be a future teacher? Some may think you’re making a mistake; saying teachers don’t make a lot of money or have terrible benefits. Being a future teacher to me isn 't about the money or the benefits, it’s about the satisfaction of seeing a child learn something because of you. When someone tells you they want to be a future doctor it 's because they want to help people, that’s exactly what a teacher does---helps people. Teachers are the stepping stones to any career you want to do, without teachers who would you look towards for guidance on how to do anything in life. Being a teacher is my goal in life and I intend on being the best that I can.
With the rapid pace at which things change in the 21st century, one always needs to upgrade or acquire new skills to stay abreast with the ever-changing world of technology. Competition for the few jobs in the industry is keen and I consider the postgraduate diploma programme as the perfect starting point for the next phase of my career. For me, this opportunity is a chance to improve myself and I am resolute in my mind and body for nothing but excellence in this
