My Teaching Philosophy - The teaching context I have chosen for my work in this class is Spanish. Spanish would be taught as a foreign language for second and third grade students in an Elementary School in the United States. However, it is important to point out that there is diversity of cultural backgrounds, (some students are from India, China, and Korea, etc…) but all of them speak English. The proficiency level of the target language will be a beginner, though the students have been already exposed to the target language since they have had Spanish instruction since kinder....   [tags: Teaching Philosophy 2014]

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. After taking off from school for a few years, getting married, and having a baby, I realized that I didn’t just want a job; I wanted to make a difference in the world....   [tags: Teaching Teachers Education Essays] 1172 words

My Teaching Philosophy - My Teaching Philosophy I believe that education extends far beyond the classroom walls, and involves many more people than students and teachers. People should be learning wherever they go, and should continue learning long after they’ve graduated from high school or college. Education isn’t something that can be quantified with tests or report cards, but is instead something that people carry with them. It’s a survival pack for life, and some people are better equipped in certain areas than in others....   [tags: Education Teaching Philosophy] 570 words
