The whole issue of teacher certification is one of great importance and when discussed must be done in a delicate and thoughtful manner. The reason for this increasing importance is because the education of our nation's teachers is important to the creation of an ideal education system, which is one of the goals of our national government and State governments. Over the years the whole educational reform movement has become an increasingly 'hot' topic. Reforms in the administration of school systems and in curriculum theory and practice have been asked for and a4re currently being put into effect. Recently, reform of the education of teachers is being added to the lo9ng list of reforms

What Makes an Excellent Teacher?There are many teachers who are capable of providing students with the necessary information needed to be learned in school. Out of those many, there are a few special ones who always stand out. Students usually refer to them as excellent teachers. Many different characteristics combine together to create this exceptional individual and extraordinary teacher.A great teacher must be fair to absolutely everyone. This includes treating every student with the same respect; having no favourites. Teachers who do this will almost always receive that respect in return from the students. This helps the class function well so the student will learn more. They also

Why I Want To Be A Teacher?
This essay prompts me to answer the question: Why do I want to become a teacher? I honestly had not thought of the why until now. I just kind of knew I wanted to help younger children in some form of way. When I entered CVCC my freshman year, my major was to go into nursing, and eventually a pediatric nurse. This thought was driven not only by the want to help children, but I was also influenced by many people around me. My best friend, Sydney, is going to UVA currently for a nursing degree. My boyfriend’s mother is also a nurse who works for the local hospital in Lynchburg, Centra. These people and few others really encouraged me to go forward

, but unfortunately, many teachers have not been trained in nor are they practicing proactive communication with parents. Barriers to effective communication are considered in conjunction with potential solutions. Two-way communication occurs when teachers and parents dialogue together. Effective dialogue “develops out of a growing trust, a mutuality of concern, and an appreciation of contrasting perspectives”. A teacher may contact parents to celebrate a child’s successful school experience. However, more frequently, the contact is to share a concern about the child, which can be a source of significant tension for both teachers and parents alike. Teachers should strive to make these

My Philosophy of a teacher.What makes a good instructor? There are lots of factors, which determine the answer to this question, and one of the most important aspects of being a good teacher is, I believe, the teaching strategy of a teacher. I think that teachers play a very important role in molding the career of a student emotionally, technically and intellectually. A good teacher is a person who works with a single powerful goal in mind: working for the best interests of all the students, which help them, succeed socially and academically. I certainly don't agree with the statement made by Dunny that a good teacher is just about knowing the curriculum and forcing the stuff on the

In any working relationship, there need be a sense of order and discipline. This constant applies to one's relationship with educators as well as all other figures of authority. Most of the time in a student / teacher relationship is spent in the classroom. Therefore to enable a profitable experience for both parties involved in the relationship, order and discipline must again be in place. The teacher's role involves educating and disciplining the students. A teacher cannot teach without the attention of the class, therefore discipline is sometimes necessary to keep students in line. Some techniques used by teachers to discipline students are detentions, scoldings, and essays. The student

Since I could remember, I always wanted to teach. I used to play “teacher” with my dolls, sit them as if they were in a classroom and just teach them. I have always wanted to become a teacher because I love school, and I want to help young children learn and succeed. Being a teacher to me means being able to develop a relationship with the students that will encourage them to come to me with any sort of problems and concerns. I would say I have a combined teaching philosophy and they both mesh each other very well. This is my guiding philosophy of education, to nurture others to become the best they can be and to let students

Thus, the lesson plan should involve hands on activities that has concrete objects to aid understanding and enhance learning.
Piaget’s theory can be applied to when and how a child should be taught. Piaget’s theory is very student centred and the role of the teacher is as the facilitator, this basically means that the teacher should not ‘spoon feed’ the pupil the information but help them by assessing the level they are at and then setting suitable tasks for example giving children small

This case study involves a high school math teacher. This teacher was hired prior to the current principals arrival. The heart of this problem lies around the lack of student achievement in his classes. The principal states that his content knowledge is very deep, however, he has very poor classroom management. His students are off task more than not. Because of his weakness in classroom management, his students are not adequately learning the materials, thus performing poorly on their classroom assessments. Additionally, these students are also performing poorly in this content area on their standardized assessments.

8/22/18: Letter of Introduction to Teacher
Dear Mrs. Hernandez,
I am a very optimistic person. Although I may not convey it through verbal expressions, deep down inside I do think of things in a hopeful and positive manner. I am also very careful. I think about how my actions can affect others and if my actions affect them in a positive or negative way. This is why I am a quiet person because I am afraid if I say something offensive on accident it may get someone mad or sad. But I do have a social side, this just takes a few weeks to develop especially since I am a freshman. Due to me being the only person that went to this school from my past school Bowman Ashe Doolin K-8 Academy it feels
