These are all important in making the students feel comfortable in your classroom. To have an excellent stance is to encourage creativity and individuality in your students. You want them to feel free to experiment with new ideas. You also want to use activities to engage your students so they can relax and have fun in your classroom. Part of a good stance it is important to have different ways to teach the same material and to reach kids at their level. If what you are explaining uses a bunch of words the students don’t know it is going to over their heads and they won’t pay attention. Make sure, as a teacher, you rely on past experiences to help improve your stance. The fourth part of passionate teacher is the student. I feel this is the most important part and it is what teaching is all about. As a teacher, you will continuously be thinking is the way I am presenting this material most beneficial for my students. As a passionate teacher it is important to think about how we evaluate students and if our form of evaluation fair to all students. Excellence is not the same for everyone, so it is no fair to tell students that getting an “A” makes you excellent. Even if a student is getting all A’s, it doesn’t mean they are reaching their potential of excellence. As a passionate teacher it is important to try and bring out the excellence in every person and give the students recognition when they have reached that point. It is also important to recognize what is going on outside of the classroom in students’ lives. This can affect a student’s behavior and study habits. If you do not know what is happening outside the classroom, it is impossible to know how to best handle any situations that might come up. The final aspect of passionate teaching is the course. As a passionate teacher it is important to design your course in a way that the students will learn and remember the material presented to them. One way to do this is to design the course backwards.

    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.
