My Philosophy Of Becoming A Teacher

Superior Essays
Title
“Don 't try to fix the students, fix ourselves first. The good teacher makes the poor student good and the good student superior. When our students fail, we, as teachers, too, have failed.” ~Marva Collins There will always be a student that will be struggling and as a teacher you should never give up on the student and help them succeed. In becoming a teacher, I will need a certain amount of education, understand what my responsibilities and requirements will be ,and make sure the job fits in with my future lifestyle.
When going into any career, it would be helpful to know the requirements needed for the career. Career planning is an important thing when going to college and it will help you out a ton so you don’t have to try to figure

I am very impatient but I have to adapt because I know that it will be hard for some kids. I enjoy talking a lot which is also very important when becoming a teacher because if you never communicate with the students they will never really get anything out of your class. One last skill that I also thought was important is that the students are constantly learning because later in life those things you taught the students could benefit them in college or even help them start their career. If you slack on teaching it could really fail a student or multiple and they won’t be successful in life because of a little mistake ("9 Useful Skills for Teachers"). Student teaching will really help when getting a teaching career because it will show how it’s going to be and what some requirements other than the ones you already know are. I would say this job best fit me because it’s a social career and if you ask anyone they would say I’m really social because I like to talk to everyone and talking in general. I also enjoy helping people who are struggling in something especially Math since that is my favorite subject. If I ever see someone struggling I try to help them as much as I can although I might not know what to do

    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.…

    Teachers who have been accused for low performance of wrongdoing do get fire! It is just a matter of time to prove the accusations. Moreover, the education manifest to the website believes that, “Tenure creates complacency because teachers know they are unlikely to lose their jobs”. This is not true because it does not create complacency; it just gives to teachers the stability they deserve in their jobs to innovate their ways of teaching. Teachers shouldn’t be judged on the way students perform because it is always the student decision to learn something in class or not.…

    The new teacher must also feel comfortable with their own knowledge of the content they are teaching. In the beginning stages of their teaching career, new teachers often fear that they will not do well and will be judged by their colleagues. These fears often disappear when the teacher realizes that he or she has the capability to teach in the classroom and should not worry about being judged by their coworkers. While encouragement is often preferred, we should not shy away from constructive criticism. Because new teachers do not have enough experience in the beginning of their teaching career they might feel apprehension as to how to help unmotivated students see the value of learning.…
