As far back as I can remember teaching young children has always been a passion of mine. I remember going with my mom to her school where she taught Pre- K on my days off of school and being so excited to engage and work with the students. Watching them learn new things and seeing how excited they get when they are able to do something helped me to realize that I wanted to be the person to help them achieve their goals. My primary focus is the elementary grades since I enjoy their innocence and willingness to try new things even when they know it is difficult for them. Young children seem to have a passion to explore their surroundings and are able to look at different situations with an open mind. I feel this is why I enjoy working with …show more content…
I believe for the most part that educators and our schools are trying to do the best that they can but there is always room for improvement. Schools are offering extracurricular activities to students to help promote students identifying their interests and abilities outside of the classroom walls. With more hands on learning students are given the opportunity to explore what they enjoy and where their interests are instead of just teaching what the text book says. Interactive classrooms have become prevalent in our classrooms and this has allowed our students to work with others and develop and set personal goals as well as classroom goals. Our schools today have come to realize that not all students learn in the same way. By teaching not only the basics of education but allowing students to explore and open new doors at their own pace has helped students to become better learners. Many classrooms that you walk into you will find various learning activities going on at the same time with students learning how to work together as a group and to help them to understand how important everyone’s contribution is. Our schools today and the philosophy of education is allowing our schools to become well rounded citizens who will be able to enter in the work force and contribute their knowledge. This is happening because we are changing the way education used to be of sitting behind a desk with pen and paper and allowing our students to learn and grow by interacting with others and our community. Many schools are now offering opportunities for students to visit the workplace and to see first-hand what happens in our community. Our school system has had many changes over the years and school has now become a place where students can feel safe, learn not

    In the process of teacher education I feel that the classes should consist of more hand on activities such as doing lesson plans and presenting them. If the student was to present the lesson to a group of students it will be better since they will obtain many techniques such as presenting and also modify if there is any concerns the students give them. In a classroom setting teachers should do more activities to get the students involved. In my own schooling experience I do not recall doing a lot of activities in my classroom, due to it I would occasionally find myself being bored. If we have teachers who do fun engaging lesson plans I think will also help improve the test scores.…

    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.…

    I firmly believe that every child learns differently. Some children learn by listening, others learn from peers, some may learn by using a manipulative and others may learn by reading. Whatever a child’s learning style is, I plan on incorporating that into my classroom everyday. I believe that a child needs more positive enforcement in his/her lives then they do negative. They do not need to be constantly put down for the things they have done wrong, rather they should be praised for the things that they have done right.…

    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…

    While it is the teacher’s job to make sure the student understands the material presented to them they must also make them believe in their potential as a person. According to the theory of Invitational Teaching classrooms should be a place for excitement and enrichment for everyone involved. Teachers have more power than some may believe. The way they behave in the classroom and the emotions they give off can effect the child more than the curriculum. Students can learn as many positive and negative traits from their teachers as they can from their parents.…

    My learning is defiantly more enriched because I can practice what I learn in the classroom everyday. In addition, I am not only affecting my learning positively by tutoring pre-literacy skills at the dayroom, but I am also enriching the children I tutor with indispensable learning. The children are learning literacy skills that they will use for the rest of their lives as future readers, and are learning skills essential for success in elementary schools. Without our guidance the children could fall behind in school without being exposed to literature. With time, I hope that students will learn and blossom into young readers.…

    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.…

    According to researchers, "Educational technology helps close learning gaps, while we can 't always predict educational outcomes, educational technology allows us to use data to identify students that need interventions in certain subjects. This is especially important because data allows information to be analyzed and easily communicated back to teachers, parents, and other parties involved quickly. The sooner they can take steps to correct these issues, keeps students within the educational timeframe" (Embracing technology to Achieve Results). Integrating technology in the classroom has helped students become their own teachers. Students have the different tools to find the answers and they can also implement their teachings anywhere it 's needed.…

    But it is not just a matter of ‘adaptation’ - a critical review of established habits and the learning of some new ones is often required. The TDA might more appropriately say that a teacher should "be skilled in using talk to instruct, guide, manage, assess and inspire a class of children, and in so doing enable them to become effective users of talk for learning, explaining and solving problems together” (Mercer). If kids get the support that they need and get taught well in school they have a higher chance of continuing school instead of dropping out and ending up with a shorter amount of…

    It is about how most affective learning happens when there is emotion, challenge, and support. In Expeditionary Learning schools teachers help students discover that there is more in them then they know. Teachers do that by putting students in unexpected situations to discover who they truly are. Next, is The Having of Wonderful Ideas. I think it means that at an Expeditionary Learning school they teach students to try experiments and to…
