My Teaching Philosophy
I get to be a part of building the future. It is my responsibility as a teacher to create a positive, stimulating, and safe environment for my students. I am not just teaching “silly little kids” they are young people will talents and dreams. I have the opportunity of helping my students on their journey of self-discovery and challenging them both individually and academically. I will work to meet each child’s unique needs (mentally or physically) and help them recognize their strengths and work through their weaknesses. I will help my students recognize that they can bring something to the world that no one else can and help them see just how capable they are.
I will teach my students how to become productive members of society. I will work to show my students that their thoughts and ideas are valuable. I will also challenge my students to be problem solvers, not just problem announcers. My instruction will include variety such as independent work, group work, whole group actives, guided practice, silent reading, and partner work. I will make my classroom rules and expectations clear and hold my students accountable to treat each other with respect and dignity. I will maintain good teacher parent communication, keep them updated on the skills the students are working on each week and how to review with them. I will also make myself flexible to help meet a child’s individual needs and keep parents well informed when if their child needs extra help.
Teaching is an honored profession in which I get to help young independent learners become productive young men and women. I love that I have the opportunity to share my own experiences and well as knowledge to help my students discover more about themselves. The most rewarding part of teaching is that I get to watch my students grow and develop into brilliant young men and women.
