Statement of Educational Goals and Philosophy - As a nation, the United States is very focused on education. It is viewed as one of the most important aspects in life. Teachers are not only educators, but they also set the goal for each life of the students they touch. If teachers did not exist, society, jobs, technology and everything else would not exist. We would be nothing but cavemen still drawing on the walls of caves. Teachers are not only educators, but parents and providers. They provide love to each student they come by, and provide them with the knowledge that is needed to succeed in life....   [tags: teaching goals, teaching philosophy] 1326 words

Aspirations to Achieve my Educational Goals - After nineteen years of living in a small town named Wasco, known by most for the prison, I moved to Long Beach. I grew up in a strict religion that discouraged questioning and required extreme dedication towards servitude of God. Attending college was discouraged by my parents and the church, as it took away from time spent towards serving God. Living in Wasco was my own prison. Moving to Long Beach meant freedom to me where I was finally able to stretch my constrained, clipped wings. Suddenly, the simplest of questions, for some, such as "What do I want to be?" and "Who am I?" plagued my mind....   [tags: college, prison, answers, hardship] 730 words

Educational Goals and Philosophy - Philosophy Declining, decaying, and disappearing are just a few of the words that can be used to explain the emphasis put on art programs in schools. Art is not seen as a necessity. Standardized tests are now dictating not only what is taught in school but what is more important to teach. Seldom do you see a question pertaining to art or even art’s history on a standardized test. I think that art is a very important subject. Not only does it act as a creative outlet allowing students to express feelings that may be forbidden to act on, but art is deeply rooted in our history from the cave paintings first found in France to the modern uses in advertisement....   [tags: Personal Narrative Teaching Education Essays] 1250 words

My Educational Goals and Philosophy Statement - My Eclectic Educational Philosophy Thinking back on the years of high school, I remember having wonderful experiences both inside the classroom and out.
