A Personal Statement Of Purpose Of Education

Good Essays
I believe the purpose of education is to teach young students a task that they don’t know how to solve. By doing this, it will take a lot of challenges, frustrations, and responsibilities. On the other hand, it will bring lots of joy, happiness, and excitement. Every child is capable of learning by having the right teacher that will motivation and direct them in the right path. My students will have my full attention and time, in order for them to succeed. If I don’t set the example then they won’t see it, so it’s my responsibility for my student’s to be motivated. To be a fruitful educator, it will require more than skills. It will require a heart and passion to teach to the students. My role as an educator will be to give children all the …show more content…
When a child does not feel safe in the classroom then learning can possibly decrease. It doesn’t matter if it’s emotionally, physically, or socially. For me, it’s very important the child feels safe as well as their parents and administrators, and other teachers. I want them to feel secure and that they can trust me and know that the students can see me as someone they trust and approach for anything. Classroom organization is very important to me because it will create a place where students can learn but most importantly, understand responsibility, create relationships with other students, and learn how to work together with classmates. It has to be a place where learning is suitable, comfortable and non-threating. If the students doesn’t have a classroom where it’s organized then it can hinder them from learning. I think having a creative classroom or setting up the room will help my students learn better. For example, if I have a bulletin board on a subject were learning in class like science. I would have students on my bulletin board about science with pictures that will focus them on the subject. Another example would be having the room in sections like a reading section. The reading section will have books where they can concentrate just on reading their books. If the students don’t have a classroom organization then their interest on learning the subject will decrease. It is very …show more content…
Every student is different and have a different way of learning things. One way of approaching is Differentiated instruction (DI), a process of providing different leaning experiences to meet students’ learning needs (Scholastic). There are many other ways to approach to differentiated instruction. As teachers we can let the students work at their own pace and have the other students who know go directly to application activities. You can also differentiate the process/activities by varying the learning activities. Teachers and students must accept and respect one another’s similarities and differences. The teacher is primarily a coordinator of time, space, and activities, rather than a provider of information. This helps student’s aim for self-reliant workers. Students work in groups, as well as independently. Teachers use variety of instructional strategies to help target instruction to student

    Doing so also makes it easier for teachers to point out weaknesses of students and formulate ways to help them in those areas, and in turn, students also learn how to evaluate their work (Hoff, 2000). Third, there should always be the assurance that the discussion and examination of student works contain a fixed purpose or objective. The center of the discussion may vary according to what information do students want to imply through their works. An ideal type of student work in this area is a videotape wherein a student expresses his viewpoint on a certain matter in question. Assessments of student work in depth will not just reflect if students have learned enough, but will point out reasons why some students have learned from lectures, but other students have not (Thompson, Melissa, & Jones,…

    We all learn in different ways, and that is especially true in a special education classroom. I plan to assess students’ preferential learning style to guide instruction. Each student has a different set of strengths and weaknesses, and strengths should be identified and used in the classroom. When a student is learning in his or her preferential learning style, the student is much more likely to remain engaged in the lesson. Lessons should be differentiated to target multiple learning styles.…

    Teachers need to be seen as someone that students can confide in. When students are comfortable enough to confide in the teacher this can sometimes break down those tough barriers that keep students from giving their full potential in the classroom. Setting the example and being a leader can also influence students to do the same outside the classroom which can improve the student 's behavior if they are having disciplinary problems. A teacher who supports students being different, not only when it comes to race or religion, but also in the field of how students learn will teach students that it is okay to be different which is helpful to learn at this stage to keep students from being aggravated with the progression they are making compared to other learners. Being able to teach to the students individually and not teaching to the test increases student confidence in the classroom.…

    The ultimate goal of my classroom management is not to manage control of the class but to ensure that everyone meets my expectations in order for them to learn in an effective and supportive environment but to teach students self-discipline and to understand the rules and consequences of my classroom by acting accordingly. I would feel more comfortable adhering to the tenets of a school adopted classroom management program to start with because it is familiar with what students have been seeing as a school wide concept but then to see what specific classroom related rules I may want to add or have more classroom engagement rules that the students may want to add so that they feel…

    Creating a student focused classroom environment will allow students to interact with their peers for a collaborative learning experience. Therefore, students are able to use each other as a resource; they can ask their peers for help or assistance if they need it, before going to the teacher. Since some students always count on the teacher for help, it is nice for students to help other students. A progressivism approach connects with what methods I want to utilize since the teacher functions as a guide for the students and the lessons connect student’s cooperative work and projects (Hall, Quinn & Gollnick, 2014). Since the world is always changing methods will need to be adapted and change with what is relevant in the current.…

    Students, thus, are responsible in their own learning. In order to deal with student diversity, ‘scaffolding’ is one of the methods that could facilitate my student learning with previous knowledge and skills. As every student has equal chances in learning, I usually try to figure out the difficulties and needs of my students during the lesson. Cooperative learning and immediate feedback could enhance independent learning and ensure students’ understanding of new concepts. Although there are many techniques in teaching children with SEN, teachers need to keep trying a variety of strategies since there is no best method toward learner…
