1 posts Re: Topic 2: Discussion Question 1 The teacher role is to assist all students in the best way we can. Put our best foot forth and educate our children. Encourage students to challenge themselves and seek a successful completion at the conclusion of the term. I do not believe that at any grade do our role changes. Whether you teach Kindergarten or 5th grade the role of the teacher is to push all students to become their best and share our knowledge with them. Educators should induce the confidence in all children to help them want to grow and develop into what they need to be. If you teach K-5 or 6-8 the goal is the same, although the work may differ. The role of all educators is to prepare our children for the next steps of their lives. Dr. Dickey and Class, The teacher’s role is to guide their student’s development of learning through great understanding of who that student is, regardless of their life situation, and what they are capable of achieving. Being a positive model and teaching them more than just the curriculum but helping them become critical thinkers and problem solvers. In kindergarten students are unsure of themselves and surroundings and it is the teacher’s role to earn their trust by being their constant model. Guiding them through each step of the learning process using more hands on activities, with constant repetition to learn and develop understanding of concepts. Where in sixth grade the students are more independent and the teacher can be more of a guide allowing the students more freedom for research and exploration to further deepen the concepts being taught. The teacher’s role does differ between the elementary and middle school environments. Socially and emotionally the elementary students are just beginning to look past themselves and developing relationships and becoming responsible. Where in middle school the students are becoming more independent and mature to be able to think for themselves wanting to excel.

The teacher plays are a very important role in guiding the students to achieve their academic and social goal. The students need guidance in every stage of development. The students hold very high regard for the teachers in their lives and thus, teachers must be a positive role model. In my class, I even get to hear from my students that I am their hero. It makes me feel proud of it. Hence, it is a teacher’s constant effort to guide and encourage students in a positive way. I truly believe that molding the students on the right path is the teacher’s most important duty. The age and grade level of students does vary teaching strategies. A second grader would need more specific directions, than a middle school student. The material too, probably a second grader would work more with concrete materials as compared to the middle school student, who might go into abstract learning.
