My teaching philosophy is based on the idea that education is crucial for everyone. Children differ greatly from one another, and they all possess unique qualities that they can use to further their own education.
I've learned a lot during the last few years. Initially, I had the chance to watch knowledgeable instructors and experiences in action. This gave me the opportunity to pick up a variety of instructional ideas and techniques that work well to engage pupils and advance their learning. I had the opportunity to speak with and learn more about the students. This made it easier for me to see each student's unique needs , talents, and shortcomings—a critical component of organizing and implementing successful instruction. Developing relationships with students also improved the comfort and supportiveness of the learning environment. I took part in team meetings and worked together with other educators. These experiences gave me important insights into developing curricula and structuring lessons. I gained knowledge on how to match learning objectives and activities to the overarching educational objectives in order to give pupils a cogent and meaningful educational experience.
In my role as a teacher, I will mentor my pupils to develop self-expression skills and an acceptance of individual differences as well as those of others. As each student develops their unique learning style, I will work with them to help them realize their full potential. Every classroom is different from the others and creates a community of its own. I plan to incorporate multiple learning styles into my curriculum and classes, while also connecting the subject matter to social justice issues that my students find significant. In order to suit the requirements of each and every one of my students and to keep them interested and motivated to study, my curriculum will incorporate projects, partnering activities or cooperative learning, hands-on learning, and individual work. Having said that, a teacher serves a variety of purposes for her students, such as that of a role model, a source of inspiration for both academic and personal success, and—most importantly—a trustworthy safety figure in the modern world. It's critical to comprehend your students, their learning styles, and the resources they require for successful learning.
Each child is unique. Although it may seem apparent, a lot of incompetent educators tend to overlook this fact. It is a teacher's responsibility to make each student understand that they are all unique individuals with unique talents, abilities, and competence levels. When a student isn't performing well in a specific subject, the instructor and the learner should collaborate to determine the reason.
According to Lev Vygotsky's sociocultural theory, human development is a socially mediated process in which young people learn their cultural values, beliefs, and methods for addressing problems through cooperative discussions with more experienced members of the community. His idea is connected to education because the classroom is its own community. This is especially true given his strong opinion that community is essential to meaning-making. His viewpoint ran counter to Piaget's, who thought that learning was an essential and universal component of the process by which culturally organized systems, particularly human psychological functions, emerge. Put differently, he believed that learning occurred most effectively for students when they interacted with other kids or adults.
Another crucial element in the classroom, in my opinion, is professionalism. Although it's admirable to have a strong will and to be confident in your own understanding of the material, teachers should never give up on their own education. Maintaining a solid student-teacher relationship is, in my opinion, the last and most crucial aspect of professionalism. By cultivating this relationship, your pupils will respect and believe in you. This enables your learner to feel at ease in your company and in the learning environment.
The classroom is set out in three rows. The color of an apple is used to identify each row. The apple's colors are red, green, and yellow. Every row has its own tree. The teacher will place an apple on the tree for the row that is quiet and completes their job. The color of the apple belonging to the row with the most apples on the tree is recorded in a scorekeeping book. Every day is a new task, and at the conclusion of the week, the row with the most wins overall receives a prize. Every week, the prizes are different. The method for managing the classroom was incredibly effective. At the end of the week, the students couldn't wait to see the pricing. It sustained them for the entire week. While occasionally some pupils showed little interest, but most of the time it was a success.
