Preliminary Educational Philosophy Paper Alex Fafara 1/24/11 What type of teacher do I want to be? The first word that comes to mind is “awesome”. But what does it mean to be an “awesome” teacher? Now, I do not claim to have any concrete knowledge of what key traits an ideal teacher may have, I have noticed similar traits in all of my favorite teachers. One such trait is their ability to be creative in their lessons. Another is how they are entertaining to the class. They don not take themselves too seriously, but they know how to have their class focus when something serious or important is being spoken about or worked on. I feel that the way I will develop these traits as an educator will come through time, as well as practice. Perhaps the most important lesson I want my future students to remember one year after I have taught them is that they can always come to me for help, for school related problems or otherwise.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
