I chose to do my research topic on The Role Head Start plays in the life of the community, families, and children education. Throughout my career I have had the pleasures of working with different age groups of children. I have taught preschoolers for over ten years now and I have also taught different childcare curriculums. The most exciting and rewarding job that I have taught was with The Montgomery Community Action Agency Head Start program. From a parent of a Head Start student to a teacher of the Head Start program I can clearly say that Head Start has made a difference in my family life.
We communicate very closely with each other on the intervention team, and this is so important for us to be on the same page as each other. As we see the same children on different days, this will help us to support the children to the best of our ability’s. Writing down clearly what we have done in our session with the children, so the next time the next LSA knows what to carry on with is paramount. Children We communicate with children to give instructions, to teach them and help them to learn, to reassure them, and to fulfil their needs so if they ask something we are able to respond in the right way. When we communicate with children we need to ensure we use age appropriate language.
As of today, most states, (forty-three states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity), have voluntarily adopted these standards. The new standards also provide a way for teachers to measure student progress throughout the school year and ensure that students are on the pathway to success in their academic careers. Educational standards are the learning goals for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. Educational standards help teachers ensure their students have the skills and
This essay will provide explanations and justifications on how the deployment of support staff is effective in supporting children’s learning and additional needs in the early years. Most schools, today, employ individuals who support teachers within the classroom. However, having additional adults within the classroom is quite a new concept only really coming into practice about ten years ago. In 2003, a national agreement signed by government, employers and school workforce unions entitled “Raising Standards and Workload” (Department for Education, 2003, p5) brought to light the important role of support staff in the school. It raised awareness of how opportunities would benefit the support staff and, in turn, teachers and schools.
A strong sense of attachment and belonging was shown in that Pre-K class between the teacher Miss Samantha and her children. Attachment theory made a strong relation between teacher and her children this made grasping information and learning much easier and controlled. It also increased the communication between teacher students and student with each other’s. Attachment theory was known as the Lasting psychological connectedness between human being (Bowlby, 1969, p. 194). The sense of belonging to that place made children behavioral observation more interest.
|Educ G 203 | |Influential Teacher Paper | |[Michelle May | |17 September 2012] | | | The Teachers that have Impacted My Life As I have gone through the school system, I have met a few teachers who have made an impact on my life. Thanks to their dedication, I have now been inspired to further my education and become a teacher myself. I obviously grew up being in the classroom taught by teachers but since my mom is a speech language pathologist I have also seen school from the teacher’s perspective. For as long as I can remember, I have loved helping her in her classroom. From coloring to lesson plans, I enjoy it all.
During the lessons also materials and resources were adequately prepared and matched the students different learning styles including visuals, food menus and a song for auditory learners. (See appendix 1). 3. Pre, during post observation and recommendation. Initially after our one to one discussion before the lesson the main aspect that concerned you most is your classroom management skills when teaching lower levels so we both agreed to focus on a particular criterion for giving feedback regarding the development of both lessons.
Everything that is done at home, by the parents, can be taken to school and used to promote learning for their child. Parents could help their children succeed in school by organizing study sessions, reviewing their child’s work, and keeping them physically active. Study sessions could have a positive impact on a child. Parents could organize study sessions which would require the child to study materials twice a week at the town library. These sessions at the library would provide them with a quiet environment to learn and get a better understanding of their work.
The more children know about their world, the easier it is for them to read and learn when they get to school. You have an important role to play in helping children learn new information, ideas, and vocabulary and how to use this knowledge to become full participants in their own learning. You can help children to connect new information and ideas to what they already know and understand. As a teacher, you and the children's parents and caregivers are partners in helping to get the children ready for future school success. Good communication with parents and caregivers can build support for and strengthen the important work that you are doing in the classroom.
Running Head: DIRECT ASSISTANCE TO TEACHERS Direct Assistance to Teachers Teresa McNair Grand Canyon University: EDA 5551 May 9, 2012 Direct Assistance to Teachers “Direct assistance to teachers is one of the crucial elements of a successful school” (Glickman, Gordon, & Ross-Gordon, 2010, p. 288). Direct assistance provides one on one support which is necessary to promote the attainment of knowledge, interpersonal and technical skills needed by our teachers to be efficient in the classroom instruction and management. Within our educational organizations today, clinical supervision and peer coaching are currently two of the most popular forms of direct assistance used. Within today’s educational organizations, many changes are taking place which now puts majority of the responsibility on administrators. With this amount of accountability, administrators must ensure the academic success of their students through the effective use of supervisory practices.
