My philosophy is student centered. I believe that every student is different with an individual way of learning and their own set of needs and gifts that are brought to the classroom. It is my responsibility as a teacher to expound on their gifts and provide an environment that will foster maximum learning and meet each child’s individual needs.
Each child is unique and learns differently. As a teacher I believe that it is important to teach in a way that employs a variety of teaching strategies. The students should learn from each other and learn to work together through cooperative learning. The students should be active learners exploring concepts through hands on learning. The students should also learn to be able to apply the concept at high-order thinking levels. I will do my utmost as their guide to excite them about learning. Learning needs to be fun!
I believe that to learn the classroom must be a place where the student feels secure and comfortable. They need to know that the teacher cares about them. It is my responsibility as a teacher to provide such an atmosphere. An atmosphere where no matter the student they feel at home and like they have ownership. I believe that the child must have the confidence that they can succeed. I will believe in each student. I also believe that the standard set for the students should be reachable, but high. Each child dissevers to be challenged to reach the fullest of his/her potential.
Teaching is a challenge and a joy. It is also a life long process of reflecting and making necessary adjustments. To be a good teacher you have to love teaching. I love the uniqueness of every day and every child. I am very excited about the opportunity be a part of the lives of students as they grow intellectually, socially, physically. It is a great joy and privilege to impact the lives of children in these ways.
