Taking up this course had freshened up what I learned from high school. As being an
athlete I’ve always remember whenever we go for a tri-out. Were like, super tired after
that but the pleasure we felt and the happiness it was priceless.
Which connects more to my personal belief in my future classroom. Teaching is not for
everyone but when you love what you do, it can be a rewarding and exciting profession.
My philosophy as a teacher has always been to preserve the idea that the young minds
sitting before me are the future citizens of our community.
I see my responsibility as a guide to my future students so that they may grow towards
the development of their own independence and success with good judgement, patience,
and vision as they become the leaders of our next generation. I feel that it is the
responsibility of the teacher to get to know everyone of their students, their weaknesses
and their strengths. It’s also important to build a personal trust. This trust leads to a
successful mentorship with the learner. My approach towards education and curriculum is
one that is less rigid and technical. I prefer one that is humanistic.
This approach includes lessons based on life experiences, group games, group projects,
artistic endeavors, dramatizations, field trips, social enterprises, learning and interest
centers, and homework and tutoring stations (or corners). These activities include
creative problem solving and active student participation. They emphasize socialization
and life adjustment for students, as well as stronger families and school – communities I
feel that in education more than one personal educational philosophy is required.
