Teachers should be continually learning and assessing their teaching practices through reflection and collaboration with other teachers. It is the role of the teacher to use these teaching practices to develop in students the abilities and skills that will remain with them throughout life. Teachers should be role models for their students, to provide encouragement and praise, reassuring their students that they can achieve their dreams and reach their goals. Teaching should not only focus on academics but it should also focus on character education. Students need to be prepared to enter into their community and have the ability to interact with people from different backgrounds, cultures, religious backgrounds, social status, and values. It is important that teachers work with students to help them learn the skills of cooperation, patience, communication, empathy, understanding and teamwork, these skills are extremely important for the successful integration into further education, the workforce, family life and other social interactions. Teachers can achieve this through focusing on and encouraging group work, peer tutoring as well as games and activities that focus on social behaviors.
One of the key principles of the curriculum is Health and Wellbeing. This area focuses on the development and maintenance of young people’s mental, emotional, social and physical health. As well as promoting a healthy lifestyle, full of activity, challenge and
An American psychiatrist by the name of William Glasser once stated, “When you study great teachers…you will learn much more from their caring and hard work than from their style.” Teachers are a huge part of an individual’s life. From the time a person enters into preschool until the complete cessation of their educational career, the teachers and professors along the way each influence that student’s perspective and feeling towards the particular subject they taught. With daily interactions, teachers become a part of a student’s microsystem. They are often times the only other constant adult figure in their student’s life apart from the caregiver. Whether it is acknowledged or not, the importance of teacher cannot be overstated. Unfortunately,
Despite the many challenges I face daily, remembering that I significantly influence the lives of each my students will help me in becoming a better teacher leader. Reason and Reason (2011) states that a mission will not come to fruition without ownership and ownership cannot be stimulated without consistently reminding everyone why they come to work each day. It is my mission every day to transform lives in my classroom and school environment. I have chosen a career in education because I believe that it is one of the most important functions performed in our culture. I believe that teachers individually and collectively have the ability to not only change the world but to improve it.
Today, teachers strive for the creation of positive and influential learning environments for all students. Moreover, they aim at increasing children’s chances of succeeding. They constantly re-evaluate their teaching strategies for educational improvement of students. Teachers create supportive and respectful school environment that makes students strive for more prosperous and eventually rewarding lives. According to Deborah Tannen, the teacher’s encouraging and
Taking into account that parents, guardians, families and the community have an abundance of knowledge to offer in regards to supporting their children’s education. Students, staff, families and the community will feel welcomed, nurtured, respected and encouraged to participate in school functions and assist in the development of our students.
Education will always be the primary source of student’s success in the workforce, community, nationwide and globally. Teachers carry the weight of ensuring students are learning what is required to become productive members of society. As a teacher, the success of my students is the most important goal. There are so many pedagogies, philosophies, strategies, and materials teachers are able to use to be productive in the classroom. Every teacher has their own preferred
I feel supporting students is a collective effort, therefore, my goals are to research programs outside the STS programs in order to provide students with more resources. I will be working with different programs, such as the Career Center, Graduate Division, Study Abroad, etc. to better cater the PPALS population. I now take the time to "self-care". I feel it is important and beneficial to the population I serve that I am healthy. In addition, I understand that there are different populations with different needs, therefore, I try to advocate and support the specific needs to each population. I do this by learning about resources that could aid their transition into UC Irvine. There is always room for improvement. Therefore, I try to learn
In every position, my greatest source of joy and motivation comes from being able to effectively support my students. Watching them learn something new, overcome challenges, or reach their goals always brings me the greatest sense of fulfillment. I have supported students in a variety of capacities such as answering homework questions, helping a student cope with the loss of multiple classmates, and others with their feelings of being unsafe in America. These moments, when my students trusted me with their struggles, are among my proudest accomplishments. With my future
Erin Savage, my mentor for this event, guided me through each of the stages in this process, such as planning, organizing, and implementing. Her patience and use of critical thinking skills offered this program with the fundamentals of a business, yet her talent for made this program enjoyable for all. Working alongside Mrs. Savage taught me the power of influence in positivity, and uplifting myself and others. While aiding her in the development of this program, I came to the realization of the significance when educating the youth in the
Every day teachers overcome obstacles in the classroom, problem-solve on the go, address failures and challenges, work to create better ways to engage students, and improve methods of educating. Yet, so many of these moments, these everyday victories and triumphs go unnoticed. Teachers are constantly working to support their students and create more accessible and diverse opportunities. In our small district, many of these new ideas and efforts are personally and individually spearheaded by the teachers themselves, who lead, implement, and follow through to make their vision a reality. Thankfully community partners, parents, businesses and individuals readily and graciously offer support and resources to support teachers and students.
I decide to accept Journeys Middle School as my new challenge based on the superintendent’s offer of the role of the school principle, because I believe that empower teachers and focusing on students’ achievement in a key factor for a good school community and value.
Students arriving to the school ready to learn and succeed is amazing to a teacher. Simply because early childhood education taught by the teacher is important for a student's succeed which is the reason why the teacher teaches in the first place.
Successful teaching occurs when the teacher is able to select the most efficient method for reaching out to each student’s individual style of learning and inspire students to rise to their highest potential. While the responsibilities of a teacher are extensive (as one can serve as a teacher, a friend, a counselor, a disciplinarian, an entertainer, a facilitator), I believe that students should play a big part in shaping own education as well.
As educators, we are responsible for enlightening, motivating, engaging and teaching our students. Indeed, this responsibility
