Thank you again for helping me whenever I needed help. And the final teacher who is one of my most favorite teachers is Mrs. Cox. Mrs. Cox ever since I came into middle school, you have helped me with my grades and other things. You are a great teacher to me. I want to thank you because you helped me with so many things in school.
When talking to the children I use the level that the child I’m talking to can understand as some of them you have to use short sentences as they can’t handle to much information. Talking to children and finding out what their likes and dislikes are can help them to relate to you. This can help to strengthen the bond between you. It can also help with communication and language skills, which could help their language skills. Children flourish when they feel relaxed with the people caring for and educating them.
In the book What Great Teachers Do Differently, Todd Whitaker chronicles things that great teachers do. By adopting many of the practices in the book, a new teacher can be well on their way to becoming a great teacher. High expectations, creating a climate of caring, decision making, and learning to ignore things are just a few of the things that great teachers do. Great teachers have high expectations not just for their students, but also for themselves. The expectations a teacher places on his or herself are directly related to those placed on their students.
I feel it is important to take into account the personalities of the children, as learning may be inhibited if one child is particularly domineering or intimidating. It is also necessary to look at the subject being taught and be flexible in the grouping of children. I personally feel that for subjects such as Literacy and Numeracy, where there is pressure for academic success the children should be split into ability groups. I feel by working in ability groups, the children are still able to support each other and there is still a hint of Vygotsky’s ZPD theory being practised, as there is still a range of abilities within an ability group and the more able of one particular ability group, can support the others in the group. It is important to remember that no one child is the same as another, even if they are classified as being of similar ability.
Education is the most important thing to all students. But to help them make the best out of it, every classroom has to provide good expectations and authority. While Rose discusses his theory of the consideration of authority in “Possible Lives”, Corla Hawkins builds a strong relationship with her students and gives them a healthy environment around the classroom. They’re both successful in their own ways. Mike Rose, an American professor, was doing research in many classrooms around the country.
Classroom Assistants don't replace the teacher, but they are concerned with the welfare of pupils and provide emotional support together with encouragement and support of the pupils learning and progress. Classroom assistants are a resource available to children, often to be used as required. As such we must act as role models, showing empathy in meeting children's needs. We must be aware of emotional needs and be perceptive to changes of mood. Many pupils find it easier to talk to a classroom assistant than a teacher.
I would like to show my family that education is very important, because it doesn't only affect you but everyone that is surrounded by you. I would like to set an example for my little sister, and younger cousins, that anything is possible, and that your education sets a path for your future that if you have a bright future you can have a beautiful life. I would also like God to be proud of me as well. Bishop Noll Institute offers a challenging academic environment, I clearly see it in the upperclassmen’s attitudes and the standards that they set for me as a freshman this year. The more I know the better opportunities will come my way in the future.
Qualities in a early years practitioner are patience, practitioners need to be patient and tolerant as some children can become demanding and want to be independent in what they are doing you need to give the children chance to do this even if you may be in a rush, sometimes you need to be tolerant of other staff members methods of work and dealing with problems if you feel that your own practice would work better. Practitioners need to be willing to learn as this gives them chance to grow as a professional and give them better understanding in certain areas if training is available to them and they are willing to take
Thank God- that I have been able to succeed in most of my goals. Despite the things that I went through in life, I thank Adversity for being in my life because it has made me prepare for future challenges. Also, it has helped me to recognize the importance in gaining my education to better my life and that of my daughter. I believe that though I am now a single mother, having my education will open doors for me and make me a good role model for my
Continuing Education and a Students Options Attending and then graduating from college is a great achievement for any person to be able to say they have accomplished in life. A student living in the Cincinnati, Ohio area has many choices of what colleges to go to. Students who chose certain colleges do so based on where they are geographically located and how far they are from their family first and foremost. However, with today’s economy the decision of what college to attend is very difficult. People have to think long and hard about what college would give them the best education for their money instead of just where it is located.
