My Education As A Part Of My Philosophy Of Education

Good Essays
My philosophy of education is a mindset that I have developed from my experiences teaching in the classroom and through experiences in my own schooling. As I grew and matured, my educational identity, my philosophy of education, has grown and developed as well. I believe that I am the ultimate resource to my students. I want students to develop the knowledge they need in life and become better people, in the process. This process cannot develop without the ability to ask questions and find answers and ideas that can reveal what each student is being called to do in life. In my classroom, I want to set up an environment that allows the students to freely ask questions. Students should not be afraid of being judged. By students asking questions it can help other students to find their own passion and develop their own philosophies.
The nature of a student is another big part of my philosophy. Students are children that are learning academia and skills that are necessary for life. As teachers, we need to guide the students into making right decision in our examples, and by our words and actions. We also need to understand that students make mistakes, and that they need to make these mistakes. As teachers, we need to show the students that these mistakes are opportunities to learn from and develop into a stronger, better individual.

This was also instilled in me in my methods class in college. If a teacher is having a bad day they need to leave any emotion at the door, before entering the classroom. Bringing problems into the classroom will only affect how the classroom operates. Students look up to teachers and model their behaviors. A teacher is a sense of stability in the students’ lives. We as teachers need to be there for our students, we need to be supportive, no matter how difficult the situations in life may be in our own lives or in the students’

    Humans have dreams, fears, and personalities. It is in an educator’s best interest to humanize the students rather than just view them as insentient beings because this will educate the teachers on how to instruct the students properly. By using this method of humanizing, it shows the students that this is more than just a job, this is a companionship formed on the basis of learning. Humanizing will be the foundation of my teaching. As a fresh face in the field of education, I have a lot of experience to gain regarding behavior management in a classroom, lesson planning, and exam proctoring, but this is what teaching is all about.…

    Doing this will encourage diversity in the classroom, and give students who have acquired learned helplessness over their years in their personal lives and in the classroom a sense of accomplishment. A teacher’s role in the classroom emphasizes various aspects of the North Carolina teaching Standards and the various philosophies that encompass the education field. They must be a leader in a classroom, but also leave some room for negotiation to develop critical thinking and to allow fairness among students who cannot learn in the same fashion as everyone else. This is drawn along the lines between the progressivism philosophy, and the perennialism philosophy. The student should be active in both the learning process and in the classroom.…

    It should be a teacher’s goal to aid her students in becoming independent, while also helping them to develop social and communication skills. The role of the student is to be involved in every aspect of their learning and to be an active participant in working to find the answers or solve problems. Alongside their teacher, I believe that the students should discover what needs to be learned and have a “say-so” in the way in which they are taught. Students should be involved not only in deciding what they want to learn, but they should be involved in making all decisions in the…

It can also help teachers accommodate students who face challenges by talking with the resource teachers or bouncing ideas off of other teachers.…

    I believe the best way to keep students interested in learning is to teach topics that are interesting to them. The classroom for education has to allow students to work on finding their answers in ways that will help them learn. Another essential part of a classroom is to have an environment that will contribute to the lessons rather than distract. Developing a curriculum that encourage meaningful and relevant information will allow the interests of each child to shine through fostering intrinsic motivation and the passion to continue learning. I will use themes, projects, individual work, group work, and the senses to build the best lessons for each subject.…
