I want to be a teacher because I want to do more than just teach. I want to make a huge impact, one that extends far beyond the classroom. The children are our future and I believe that I have the power to steer them down the road to success. I believe that I can improve the quality of education for my students. One of my career goals is to help many students and take a big part in shaping the next generation.
I believe that in order to become an excellent teacher you must have a desire to assist children in the learning process and this is one quality which I feel I definitely possess. I taught my first class when I was in high school and I enjoyed it so much. I loved the interaction between myself and the students. I taught this same class for an entire week and at the end of that I week I knew that this is what I wanted to do.
Philosophy of Teaching
My philosophy of teaching is that all children are unique and must be in an environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. The students in my class will be provided with an inviting environment that will allow them to learn and grow. It is not only my job, but my goal to identify every student’s talents, unique abilities and help them see the amount of potential they possess. This classroom is a place of kindness, respect and expresses dedication to supporting the journey of each and every student.
This is a place where my students can truly blossom and grow. However, I will push them to take educational risks and help them understand that they should never be afraid of making a mistake or having the wrong answer. It is important that the students know that mistakes are valuable and will only help them grow. In order to do that I plan to incorporate hands-on learning, cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that engage and activates all aspects of students learning.
