My Personal Statement: My Philosophy Of Becoming A Teacher

Good Essays
Growing up with an immigrant mother was never easy for me to get the help I needed because my mother really couldn’t help me with homework. She did try as much as she could to help and it was always known to me that I had to get good grades to keep going forward ,making sure I didn’t get held back for any reason . It was a struggle and so I started staying after school and getting help with homework or any subject I was having trouble with and my mother hired tutors to make sure I was on top of things, it was the best thing she did. My grades were perfect and my mother was happy and that made me happy. But it wasn’t always to keep my mother happy but my teachers as well. I always loved when my teachers would tell me how proud …show more content…
I want to be someone that teaches them that learning things is not always going to be easy but when learning whatever is being taught is the greatest thing ever. That is why a person goes into the profession not just to do their job but to push their students to be successful. I want my students to know that I’m always going to be there when they need anything because what my teachers did for me I don’t think I can thank them enough. Becoming a teacher is going to teach me so much because these kids have so much to say and they need someone to listen. It isn’t only teaching kids something but you have to listen to your students and when you give them that, they give you their attention and interest. When I observed for the last two semesters it was amazing because the kids made it so interesting the questions they had and the answers some gave. Not that I didn’t love it before but this made me love what I’m going to do even more because these kids are so smart and I’m going to be so exciting to start my life teaching . I want my students to remember me as not just a teacher but as I did to my teachers like a parent figure. I want them to always come back to me in the future and tell me what they did in life what colleges they went to or what careers they are in. I don’t want to ever make my students feel like I don’t care once they leave I want them to know that I’m always going to be there. It’s my passion and so this isn’t a job it’s my

I want to continue in their footsteps by impacting the lives of students in the same way my teachers did before me.

    I hope to be a great role model for the teachers that are not as into their job as they should be. Some teachers will tell you that they gave been in the profession m any years, but you can’t tell that they are into their teaching as they should be. They are not giving this child the advice or help that they need daily. I hope to become more than just a teacher that is all about books and the curriculum, I want my students to always want to be ready and excited for the next day, that’s how you keep the students off the streets and into the books. I want all my students to succeed and become great at whatever they may do.…

    One of the most important things I learned this semester is that teachers are lifelong learners. This is exciting because I have a passion for learning and growing. This excitement for learning is what I want to share with students as well as help them develop a love for learning. Another important thing I have taken from this class is the importance of showing children you genuinely care. I believe children are amazing, their minds are open and ready to learn.…

    It would be an honored to be someone the students can look up to and someone they can turn to for help. Throughout my time in school, I have met so many wonderful teachers who have inspired me to want to be like them. Finding the best career is an important choice in life because no one would want to do something they dislike doing their whole life. I have been trying really hard to find something I really enjoy doing and I believe that being an elementary school teacher is something I can enjoy doing the rest of my life. I would love to interact with children and not only be able to teach them but also learn from them.…

    As of right now, I still want to be a teacher. I love working with children and seeing them succeeded because of my teaching will make me very happy. Observing the children in the CDC gave me a taste of what it would be like to be doing my field experience/student teaching. The children are all so happy and excited to learn and I cannot wait to be a part of it. I know the road ahead will be long and difficult, but it will be worth it once I get to the end.…

    This gives me motivation to enjoy every class, since I know that it is another lesson that makes the lives of my students better. The next area that needs to be addressed for all aspiring teachers, is the ability to show compassion and firm control of the classroom. I always wonder if my desire to help my students will keep me from giving the firm speech that propelled me into the career path I have chosen. This is why I believe few people have the ability to be a successful mentor, especially in the high school age. Both of these aspects are needed to be an effective instructor in any environment, however, the greatest challenge between these two categories is the ability to continue my own education.…

    The teachers that I had would always leave a good impression on me. This has lead me to becoming a teacher because of their ability to share their knowledge and passion. Even though sometime I may not get the concept right away in class I will spend hours trying to look up how to understand that concepts and topics. I will always find a way to master that information. Another reason I would like to be a teacher is because I would…

    Teachers are the ones who should be talked about. The commitment, time, hard work and dedication that teachers display on a daily basis is what should stand out the most. It’s important to learn the difficulties of teaching but by the time they are learned, the decision to teach has already been made. Teaching is a calling. It’s not…
