Philosophy Because a good education is essential for any person to function in society, the main goal for all public educators should be to give students an education that prepares them for life, college, or the work force. Public education must teach the basic skills that all individuals need to be productive in whatever path of life they take. School should have programs that are geared for students that intend on going to college and good vocational programs for the students that feel college is not the path they want to take. When I become a principal I will try to have more vocational programs in my high school. Receiving a good education is essential in whatever a person plans to do with his or her life. If a person …show more content…
This view of education is very wrong because not everyone fits the academic mold. Many of my friends graduated with a vocational track diploma in electronics or carpentry. They are making fifteen dollars and hour and I am making zero dollars trying to make it through college. My friends are very educated in their area of expertise. Still they had to receive some kind of education to be successful in what they are doing. Secondary education needs to have good vocational programs that allow students to receive certifications in areas such as these. Educators need to realize not all students are bound for college and vocational programs are essential in providing an education for all students. As a teacher I hope that I can change a child’s life. I hope to give them hope in something better than what they may have. I see so many of my high school friends that have done nothing with their life because they feel that they are nothing. Many of them came from poor families that instilled in them that education is not important. Their families tell them that they are poor and poor people can never advance in life. I hope to make them see that being poor does not control their future. I will encourage them to get an education to improve the lifestyle that they have. I hope to motivate my students to reach for their dreams. I believe that with hard work and a strong

As a teacher, I hope to accomplish many things. First and foremost, I hope to show my students the importance of an education. I will show my students the benefits from a successful education and the repercussions of a lackadaisical one. I hope to gain my students trust and their faith. I hope the children can see me as a confidant. I hope to instill a desire to learn inside the hearts of my students. Let them be my guide in certain areas. As the years progress, I hope to personally accomplish a feeling of satisfaction I want to be able to look back and have no regrets in my career decision. I hope my students also walk away with a feeling of satisfaction, gratitude, and respect. I hop one day a student can tell me that I am their favorite teacher. I hope the students walk away with the knowledge that they need to continue their growth.
There are some people who choose not to pursue their education as of any particular reasons. Those people think education is not important, but that is not true; it is really important. With education, the human can get better job opportunities and well-paid job. Companies do not hire employees without any good skills. In order to get better, jobs-education is valuable. A person who is highly educated will get a better job than the person with less or no education. However, it is hard to find a job without any skills. well, paid job person has a much better life and other facilities than others without
My Classroom philosophy has been heavily influenced by a plethora of literature that I have analysed whilst undertaking my degree. However, I believe my practicum experience has helped me apply my knowledge in a classroom context. My personal classroom management philosophy maintains the notion that all students have equal opportunity to learn, and teachers ought to accommodate students of all backgrounds and abilities with the best possible education to ensure they achieve success in their learning. This is achieved through the utilization of stimulating, thought provoking learning environments that are holistic and considers the students’ intellectual, physical, emotional, psychological and social development. A combination of teaching, child development and motivational theories are imbedded in this personal philosophy, by having sound knowledge of varied theories, and drawing upon each unique perspective, teachers are able to apply a dynamic approach that considers the student as a whole.
Education is important in today's society. It is needed for almost everything, from getting a basic job like being a nanny to becoming a high class cardiac surgeon. For some people education is the best thing, which it is, but if you’re like me, you hate it. Don't get me wrong, sometimes school is too much and assigns lots of homework but education leads to a great future.
I think my teaching philosophy is best defined as a combination of progressivism and social reconstructionism. David Sadker, author of "Teachers Schools and Society", defines the progressive educator as someone who, "(…) facilitates learning by helping students formulate meaningful questions and devise strategies to answer those questions", while social reconstructionism emphasizes cooperation, less conflict, and a better quality of life. These two teaching philosophies in combination seem to both fit my view on how learning should be facilitated and how it should be based.
When we are children we aspire many goals and careers. Once we complete, our K-12 education, reality must set in. What are best attributes to a career? What would sastify us most? What is the single most defying career choice that is best for us? During the past year, I have gone from one major to the next and back again. It is definitely a stressful time in one’s life. The choices we make now will have a lasting effect on us. Education was my beginning major and yes, through every obstacle it is the major I have chosen. Teachers possess a difficult job because they inspire and create our future nation. I want to be a part of that I want to help a child achieve their short and long-term goals. When
My philosophy of teaching is rather simple- teach how to multiply. But I do not only mean how to multiply numbers in mathematics. My philosophy of multiplication looks like teaching others to teach others how to teach others. As the saying goes, we are life-long learners. For this to be true, we must also mean that we are life-long teachers. To learn, we must be taught. We are all teachers and we are all learners, the only differing variable in this equation are the passions that guide our teaching and learning. We need one another to teach and learn effectively because we all have unique passions and abilities. This simple fact is what inspires me to teach. We are all in this together. I want to teach in a way that encourages life-long learning. I want to teach in a way that inspires others to teach. I want to teach with humility and with an understanding that my students will teach me far more than I could ever wish to teach them.
Education. What is Education? What does it mean to be an educator? Education is a field of study dealing with methods of teaching and learning. I feel that education goes far beyond the teaching aspect. It is my job as a teacher to make sure that every student has a better understanding and knowledge towards helping others. In doing this I plan on teaching them strict morals such as how to be respectful, considerate, and appreciative of themselves and others throughout their life. In this paper, I plan to describe to you my personal beliefs on being a successful teacher, my goals and aspirations, and my philosophies on how I plan to teach each of my students and help them feel more confident about
Do you know your ABC’s, 123's, or how to read? If so, give thanks to the teachers you have had and Horace Mann for establishing what we now know as elementary schools, where the preceding is learned. Without my teachers, this paper would not be possible and it is a known fact that good teachers are few and far between. I hope to be an exceptional teacher that will not only influence the lives of my students but also be one that is willing to learn from my students. Times have changed and so has education. Some teachers just do the requirements set forth to them half-heartedly now and only teach because they have to pay their bills, perhaps they do not want to go back to school to learn a new trade. I,
Education helps us reach our life goals and dreams. It can be valuable, beneficial, and rewardable to those who strive to do their best in college and find the major, college, and specialty that will suit them. Students who receive a higher education are more likely to have a better and stable life. Although the style of disciplines that are strictly enforced in traditional schooling is unacceptable for many students, it could also have a lot of positive impacts to prepare them for the future. Students are always looking for freedom and how to not be under controlled. Positive disciplines teach them how to behave well and work together to create a better community. In terms of curriculum, everything that's being taught in school can be
When thinking of a philosophy of teaching, four major issues need to be considered. Those issues are one’s views on education, the role of the teacher, teaching and learning, and on the children. This is something that someone entering the teaching profession needs to give serious thought to and realize the importance that this will hold in the future. The following essay will express my philosophy of teaching.
A question that I have heard from several people in my life ever since the school year started is, "Why do you want to be a teacher?" Originally, I thought I just wanted the summers off. The truth of the matter is, I just want to make a difference in the lives of students. I have had teachers in my life that have pushed me way beyond even my own expectations of myself, and have had a very big influence in my life. I have also had the teachers that just accepted mediocrity, that didn't push the envelope, and those teachers I can honestly say I did not learn anything from. It was one of the influential teachers that prompted my decision to enter the teaching profession. I was in a completely different
A teacher, according to Webster’s New College Dictionary, is one who “imparts knowledge or skill.” In truth, however, the responsibilities of a teacher ascend far beyond this formal definition. For many year teachers as a whole have guided and molded each generation, thus have guided and molded the future. Being part of such a grandeur undertaking serves as ample motivation for entering the education field. Teaching will give me the opportunity to take part in one of the institutions that America prides herself on: public education. I will contribute to the goal of providing everyone, even the most disadvantaged, with an opportunity to acquire knowledge and better him or herself. I will help to
The purpose of education is to transmit both knowledge and skills needed to live in our modern world. Learning, such as critical thinking, should light a flame within the students that is a desire to learn, instead of smothering this desire through rote memorization. Just as Plato proposed that people must emerge from their caves of their own reality, students need to be brought forth out of their caves and into the sunlight by their guides who are teachers. Education is the process by which students learn more about themselves and about the world around them. Aristotle proposed that the purpose of education should be to help a person reach his or her potential. Without education, learners may not reach their full potential; they may
In recent years it has become imperative that one attend school because as technology and society evolves, it becomes more and more essential. Education is the key to more successful and stable future. It is very difficult to obtain a high paying job without any kind of education or schooling. Some jobs allow their employees without higher education to attend training to better prepare them for their job. Education is a necessary foundation to success and improvement.
