I believe that all students are capable of learning and being successful, both within and outside of the classroom. The important responsibility for teachers is to reach each of their students’ needs to meet their full potential. Learners are different in what he or she needs to be successful, and it is the teacher’s duty to assist the student in their educational journey to becoming a successful lifelong learner.
In order to live out my teaching philosophy, I plan to implement many different ideals into my own classroom. These include, but are not limited to: caring for every child’s needs, understanding of different backgrounds and capabilities, and leading students to independence both within their learning environment and their environment outside of the classroom.
I will care for every child’s needs. I will make this a priority because every child is different and requires different levels of care in order to be successful. It is not enough to know the students who are independently successful, but the teacher needs to have a special attention towards the students who are hesitant to ask for help, in any area of their lives.
I will be understanding of different backgrounds and capabilities. Not only do students come from a wide variety of households and backgrounds, but they also have a wide range of capabilities. I will pay special attention to getting to know each of my students, and having an appreciation for what makes them the student that is sitting in front of me. I will be sure to cater to each of my students’ individual strengths, and I will work to strengthen the areas that they might need help in.
I will lead my students to independence both within their learning environment and their environment outside of the classroom. I think that this is very important to be a resource for students’ independence so that they are reliant on themselves to be successful. I think that it is important that students trust their knowledge and capabilities to gain knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
