As I have gone through my many years of education, I have experienced many different types of teachers. I had not given it much thought until I decided on the profession of teacher. From all these different sources I can pull ideas and styles when in my own classroom. In the following paragraphs I will express my own philosophies and beliefs about teaching, some people who have influenced me, and many other topics involving my future as a teacher. The first thing I am going to talk about is my belief about teaching. When I was a student my favorite teachers were the ones who combined the idea of lecturing and starting conversations for the students. I felt that they were the classes that I enjoyed the most. I believe that the teacher should be there to guide the student. They should make sure they are absorbing the knowledge and be there to help them if they need to. I also think that the teacher should try to know the student and where they are at in their learning. If the student seems bored, know if it is because they do not understand or if they are not challenged enough. This happed to me and I feel that I did not reach my full potential in my learning. Which brings me to my ideas about learning. One of the most important things to me is that learning should be fun! Many children today just do not enjoy going to school.

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.
