Reflection Of Being A Teacher

Improved Essays
Being both a student and being a teacher myself I observed the direct influence that is posed upon each role. I saw how teachers have a direct influence on me and how one teacher can make a major impact on a student’s life. With that being said, I knew I wanted to make a difference in the world and I believe that being a teacher will allow me to do so. Being a teacher is not an easy profession but yet it is the most rewarding profession in my opinion. There will be goals for myself and for my students. There will be a variety of different methods that will be used to aid learning and the experiences experienced at school. Assessments will be utilized to track student growth. With all things considered, I will have to constantly improve myself …show more content…
So that, they will look forward to coming to coming to a safe and nurturing classroom environment every day and not see it as just a routine or because they have to come.

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. In addition, I would exercise a pragmatism method approach so that students will engage in practical knowledge to use in real life contents (Hall, Quinn & Gollnick, 2014). Often times, students realize that most of the things that were taught in school and does not apply to real life settings, so it is valuable to teach things in the classroom to be used in real life. Utilizing differentiated instruction, so students are able to complete and understand the lesson at their own level. Strategies for English Language Learners (SDAIE), is another method to apply since it has numerous useful strategies to exercise while teaching. I would need to be flexible in changing or modifying my methods

    As an educator, I believe each student has their own learning style and techniques. By applying the multiple intelligences theory to my classroom, I could reach more students and provide a more effective learning environment. “MI theory provides an avenue for accomplishing what good teachers have always done: Reach beyond the text to provide varied opportunities for students to learn and show evidence of learning.” (Stanford, 2003). Allowing students the opportunity to use their innate natural talent to learn in the classroom, and reaching these multiple intelligences each student has a better chance of being successful. While this may mean different students’ are doing different things during each lesson, in the end the same outcomes and goals will be reached.…

    Ways I could apply coherence teaching in my classroom would be to offer a variety of different activities and allow the students to have time to reflect on their learning. I will individually read, study, and research information so I can present my lessons to my students in a way that is easiest for them to learn. I can share with my students that I read and study information to make sure I am knowledgeable about the newest information that is currently out there. I think that team meetings to plan lessons, problem solve, improve performance, and/or learn a new strategy is an integral part of being the best teacher I can be. It would allow me to see how my colleagues come up with ideas and we all could work together to find solutions.…

    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.

    Everything needs to focus on them and their learning. In my class, the focus will be on relating the learning to something a student is interested in. Therefore, teaching them and relating their real life experiences, will help them to grow and succeed to their highest potential. Teachers should do this by taking what the student has learned previously and encouraging them to use different ways to experiment and increase their understanding and knowledge of that particular lesson. In relating each lesson to the student’s real life experiences, it allows the student to perform practical reasoning and allows the “children to apply their ideas in a new situation” (Naylor & Keogh, 1999, p. 101); which in return, will push and stretch…

    As an early childhood educator, I believe in the power of assessment because it is an integral aspect of teaching and learning. Assessing students support in helping them to become successful learners. I can relate to this statement because teachers can distinguish what students understand and what they do not know through observation and assessment data. Assessment is conducted in the classroom so that teachers can gather meaningful information about students as they engage in different learning experiences. It is done through different means such as collecting work samples, recording observations, using a checklist, rubrics, worksheets and so much more.…

    Therefore, when teachers are planning their instruction they should examine their students’ needs and levels and include the key parts of a lesson plan, such as standards, objectives, strategies, material, and assessments. Not to mention, teachers need to explain the importance of each part of the lesson plan to the students. Furthermore, lesson plans are great ways to structure what is being taught, and use to aid students where they are weak. However, as Vacca, Vacca, and Mraz (2014) stated my lesson plans are always changing. I plan or alter what I am teaching based on what my students have shown that they have mastered or not mastered.…
