My Philosophy of Education

- My Philosophy of Education I want to become a teacher for three reasons. The first is, I love children of all ages and want to help them in any way that I can. The second is, I want to influence children in a positive way and help them be all they can be, much like some of my teachers did me. Finally, I enjoy the feeling that I receive when a child's face lights up, because they understand something that I am explaining to them. That feeling is enough to make me teach, regardless of the paycheck....   [tags: Philosophy of Education Statement Teaching Essays]

Students should learn about the culture that corresponds to the language that they are learning, and teachers should promote diversity and acceptance among all ethnic groups, including the people of the target language. Students should be in a classroom where they feel comfortable enough to experiment with the new language....   [tags: Teaching Philosophy Education School Essays]

- From a very early age, I had two major goals in life. I wanted to be a good father, and a good musician. Although my determination to be a good father to any children I may have was contributed to in part by a less then ideal upbringing, my tenacious pursuit of music was precipitated by much more positive influences. Initially I was going to be a lawyer. I loved the courtroom drama and the “presentation” part of things.

This is a way to get students active in the classroom and teach them responsibility at the same time. Teachers should not be the only ones at the board.
