We, as adults, have a responsibility to teach and protect children. Teaching is one of the most crucial jobs an individual can have. Not only does teaching give students material to succeed scholastically, it helps apply knowledge and skills necessary for success in life. I want to teach so I can better equip children for adult life, while allowing them to be individuals and form their own personalities. At the core of my philosophy, there are four essential themes to teaching children: Emotional Development, Curriculum, Art, and Building Relationships. Albert Einstein once said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge” (BrainyQuote). Knowledge opens the door to the world while closing the
I see students as the next generations’ heroes in so many fields. In my vision, I have to inspire students and prepare them with confidence, knowledge, experience and skills. Which means I encourage, communicate, guide, teach, and assess students in order to enrich their infrastructures.
Through the classes I have taken at Wilmington University and my experiences in the classroom, I have developed a personal teaching philosophy that will be implemented into my future classrooms. I chose the teaching profession because I understand the challenges and responsibilities that come with teaching young minds. Children are our future and I am confident in my ability to help students reach their potential both inside and outside of the classroom.
2) I believe sharing support of ELLs and ensuring an inclusive approach relies greatly on the teachers themselves, specifically the classroom and ELL teacher. Fairbaim & Jones-Vo mention two things that I believe would work these are collaboratively planning lessons and co-teaching. By planning lessons together, both teachers are on the same page, They each understand the respected needs of their students and able to work together to create ways in which lessons are excited to optimize student success. I also think having another person perceptive is beneficial as their teaching experiences may offer you some guidance. In terms of co-teaching, I think this directly benefits the students. We all have different ways of teaching and I think students
Through my experiences working in the education field and the classes I have taken at Cal State LA, I have developed a personal teaching philosophy that will be implemented in my future classrooms. My experiences working with middle school and high schools students have led me to pursue a career in teaching. For three years, I worked as an Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) tutor at my former high school helping students with their homework and problems they face. AVID is a college preparation program designed to help high school students become motivated and prepared to enter a four-year university of their choice. I also was fortunate to work at the CSULA Reading and Writing clinic as a teaching facilitator during their Summer
My philosophy of education is that every child should receive high quality education that is inclusive, relevant and meaningful to their life. I am a firm believer of making pedagogy relatable to my students. My vision is driven by my personal experiences with the American school system. I was what is thought of as “A child at risk”. I am an immigrant, black, Muslim student. My life is transactional as I am a part of multiple marginalized groups. Most of my teachers looked at me in a pity way. They always felt the need to feel sorry for me and to question my academic excellence when I performed highly on exams. There were numerous times in which a teacher asked if I received outside help with my work or
Through the classes and field experience I have completed at Southern University, I have developed a personal teaching philosophy that will be implemented into my future classrooms. It is my desire as a teacher to provide students with a safe, fun environment that promotes learning and excellence in the classroom. These are three areas that I believe is conductive to establishing an environment, (1) motivating students to the full potential, (2) promoting preventive and supportive behavior, and (3) the teacher acting as a guide.
My philosophy of teaching is deeply rooted in nurturing the potential each and every student in my classes. Providing a creative environment that allows self assessment, growth, group interaction and mentorship are at its very core. Having taught in Higher Education for many years, and as an instructor of Media Arts and Animation, and Game Design, I have had the amazing opportunity to work with some of the brightest and creative young professionals. Teaching has not only broadened my love of art and exploration, but my determination to help students that do not have the confidence to persevere through their education, yet have the passion to follow their dreams.
Today, I am going to be talking about my motives to become a teacher and the role and jobs of a teacher and student and I will be talking about what goals I want to achieve. I hope my answers to these questions are acceptable, and relate to what they're asking.
Deciding what you want to do with your life is a very difficult decision that every person has to face in their lives, especially during their teen years when people are expected to choose a career that helps them to fulfill their dreams. Since I wasn’t the exception, and I had decided how I wanted to help people from a very young age, it took me a bit longer to realize I didn’t just want to help people, but I also wanted to do it by doing something I enjoy and love. That’s when I chose English pedagogy, because it is a way to help people by giving them the tools to learn and the possibility to achieve what they want in their lives through education and the learning of the language I like. This three years I’ve spent studying to become a teacher have not only made me learn more English, but have also made me realize that I want to keep improving my skills as a teacher, deciding to continue
As a teacher I am still creating my philosophy, and I doubt I will ever be able to
Chaos is the first word that comes to mind when I picture a world without education. Despite the minority who truly do love what they do, educators all over the United States are falling out of love with teaching for too many reasons. However, it is refreshing to know that I am not alone with the want, the need, to make a different in kids’ lives. As a future elementary teacher, my goals are to create better educated future generations and create an environment within my classroom that encompasses a sense of comfort for every child with a challenging aspect to push students out of that comfort zone, academically as well as personally, so they can get as much as they can out of the short time I will be their teacher.
My teaching philosophy is to create an environment that stimulates learning so that students gain the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to become proficient professionals. While teaching foundational knowledge is important, there are other essential skills and abilities that students must acquire in order to successfully transition from being a student to becoming a physical therapy professional. These skills and abilities include thinking critically as well as interacting and communicating effectively with patients and other health care practitioners. I emphasize to students that it is imperative to realize the impact of developing a therapeutic rapport with patients while providing quality, patient-centered care to optimize the healing process. Therefore, when deciding what to teach, I not only consider the content presented, but also how I can foster discussions with students so that they can apply information based on varying contextual factors. I also attempt to provide students a framework for how to achieve professional excellence, which I aim to model as I fulfill my roles and responsibilities as a teacher and provider of clinical instruction. This framework is rooted in five central tenets:
