Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy Throughout life I think everyone has a certain calling. God creates special gifts in people to be used to help others. Some people know right away what their calling is. I am sorry to say that it has taken me a few more years to figure out my love for teaching. I was a dance instructor for over fourteen years. During that time I attended College of West Virginia earning an Associates Degree in Business Administration. What was I going to do with that. I really did not like business, but my thinking was it would help in running my own dance studio one day....   [tags: Education Teaching Teachers Essays] 794 words

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy When I was growing up I wanted to be everything I could think of from an astronaut to a doctor. You name it and I wanted to be it. I could not make up my mind and even as I started college no decision fro my major was made. I waited two years until coming to the realization that I would like to teach. A small girl in Wal-Mart helped me come to this realization. I did not even know who she was, but somehow she caught my attention. The first time I looked at her I saw nothing, just an ordinary girl, but something made me look again....   [tags: Philosophy of Teaching Education Essays] 723 words

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy Teaching is not about being a figure of authority, being in control or the adage, “June, July and August.” Those who are in the education profession with those goals in mind will not be effective teachers and they fail those who find themselves at his or her mercy in the classroom. The most effective and successful teachers are those who found it was all they ever wanted to do; found a passion for it that lasted through the tedious process of educating by state standards to make it their profession....   [tags: Education Teaching Teachers Essays] 404 words

Teaching Philosophies - Teaching Philosophies When everyone always asked the question, what do you want to be when you grow up. I replied; I want to be a teacher. I said this because teaching was the only occupation that was familiar to me. Now, when people ask me that question I answer, I am striving to become an art educator, not because it is familiar, but because of the difference I could make. The greatest rewards of being and educator are those that are intrinsic.

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy After examining all of the different teaching philosophies, I have chosen to side with Rousseau's theory. A theory which I find to be very complete and practical enough to apply to modern day students. Rousseau's theory had three ideas throughout his writings that he used to prove his theory: the nature of students, the purpose of education, and what education should look like (curriculum, methods, disciplines). I will also look at an area in which Rousseau stayed relatively neutral in, that is the nature of knowledge....   [tags: Education Teaching Teachers Essays] 740 words

Fundamentals of Teaching - Fundamentals of Teaching As a teacher, children are my primary focus and responsibility. While I am a teacher of history, I am more importantly a teacher of children, no matter what class I am teaching. To lose sight of the needs of children is the surest way to fail as an educator. To succeed as a teacher, I must remain focused on the students at all times. Children are surely our greatest assets.

Teaching Philosophy Statement - Teaching Philosophy Statement I have always loved spending time with children. When I graduated from high school I knew that I would like to work with children in some way, but I didn’t think that I would want to become a teacher. The reasons for this were partly because of the pay and partly because I knew that the teaching profession had a lack of opportunity at the time. I decided that I would try social work, but it just didn’t seem like the field for me.

Teaching Philosophy - Teaching Philosophy Education, as well as children, has always been very important to me. My favorite game to play growing up was always “school”. I would recruit my stuffed animals and dolls to be my “students”. Every evening when I got home from school I would spend countless hours making lesson plans, tests, and grading papers for my “students”. Now that I’m all grown up and taking the necessary steps to become an educator, I’m still as excited and enthusiastic about teaching as I was when I was a little girl....   [tags: Education Teaching Teachers Essays] 862 words

Philosophy of Teaching - Philosophy of Teaching I have known for a long time now that I want to be a high school Spanish teacher. There were other considerations for a while, but none that lasted very long; they couldn’t supplant what I felt so strongly about. Because of this, I have had a long time to think about exactly what the profession means to me. In my opinion, any teacher should be driven primarily by the desire to share his passion for a subject with others. A Spanish teacher (for example) should love the language and the culture that his class will deal with....   [tags: Teaching Teachers Education Essays] 687 words

Journal Response on Teaching - I used this quote to introduce a lesson on the different ways of learning to my undergraduate content methods class. I felt the words also spoke to both the essence of our assigned texts and my state of reflection. The readings increased my awareness of the variances of issues facing higher education and the viability of multiple solutions. I realized that it is much easier to shoot an idea down than it is to consider a novel solution. Ramsden’s (1992) use of the Whitehead (1992) statement, “I merely utter the warning that education is a difficult problem, to be solved by no one simple formula” leads me to believe that he holds a similar multi-approach disposition towards higher education is...   [tags: Education, Instruction, Teaching] 1163 words

A teaching philosophy should serve to support a teacher and guide his or her actions so that the students’ best interests are always of primary focus. It should also come from within and be an extension of the teacher’s identity.
