Classrooms. I am continually being prepared for an inclusive classroom, and either way, I will look at the students’ needs and prepare lessons accordingly.
One of my goals is to use preventive and supportive behaviour strategies more than corrective.
I hope to achieve this by engaging lessons and clear expectations. Another goal I have for myself is to be objective to all the students. For example, if there is a need to correct student behaviour, after the punishment has been fulfilled, I plan to give the student a fresh start and treat him/her as equally as other students.
From my educational experiences, I know how valuable a teacher encouragement and motivation is for personal motivation. I intend to motivate students while teaching them to be intrinsically motivated through challenging yet supportive lessons and assignments. As an English, literature and religious education teacher, I desire to help the students understand and continue to learn about the (English) language, while developing an appreciation for literature and morality. Additionally, I aim to prepare my future students for college writing and help them develop the skills they need for writing as an adult. I believe it is also important to help the students develop their social and interaction skills, and will do this with group work and activities.
As an educator, I believe my philosophy and teaching styles may change throughout my teaching career and I want to remain receptive to suggestions and open for improvement.
Teaching young minds is a task that cannot be taken lightly. It is full of challenges, frustrations, and responsibilities. However, it is a task that is also full of excitement, wonder, and joy. I strongly believe that all children are capable of learning, if they have the proper motivation and direction from their teachers. As a teacher I need to be aware of learning, motivation, behaviour, and development theories in order to relate to my students and push them to reach their full potentials.
It is my duty to see that all my students are being motivated; this is only fair to the students.
They deserve my time and full attention in regards to their education.
I also want to create a classroom that is a safe learning environment for all. If students do not
feel safe in my classroom, whether it is emotionally, physically, or socially, their defence systems will go up and learning will greatly decrease, if not shut down all together. It is important to me that my students, as well as their parents, other teachers, administrators, and
people in the community, see me as someone they can approach, who will be fair and non-discriminatory.
