"Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness"
Setting goals and willingness to make changes is important
for a teacher. Without goals and a frequent review of these
goals, a teacher may lose focus and effectiveness. My mission
as a teacher is to equip every student with the tools to become
a productive, self sufficient, well adjusted contributor to society.
In order to accomplish this, learning must be interesting, engaging,
and challenging in order to develop our students to become
independent thinkers. Teachers must instill self-confidence and a
desire for responsibility in students, for them to be the best they can
be. We must create a desire for life long learning. Students must
be taught respect, responsibility, and readiness. Good classroom
management and positive role models are the essential keys for
teaching respect, responsibility and readiness.
The new Common Core Standards must take students to new
heights. Learning must be interesting, fun, and applicable to
hold the students attention and pique their interest. The content
must be presented in a way that challenges students to be creative
in their thinking. Learning material may be presented in game
form or hands on projects; however the material being taught must
have a fresh approach and be relevant to today's 21st century
world. Attainable goals should be set for the students in order
to prepare students for college and their careers.
Confidence can be instilled through positive reinforcement and
providing challenges that students may successfully meet.
Required completion of daily tasks and giving of trust promote
responsibility. Discipline must be enforced to provide a
safe comfortable, and organized environment so every student
may learn to the best of their ability.
A teacher must provide a positive role model. Students spend as
much or more time with teachers as with any adult during their learning
years. Providing a positive role model for students to emulate is
essential during these developmental years. Positive role models
teach students respect, responsibility, and encourages them to be
the best that they can be.
In summary, a teacher's job includes much more than merely
presenting material for students to ingest. It involves not only
the education, but also much of the personal development of
their students. The future of our world, rest in the hands of
today's teachers. The responsibilities are enormous;
"Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness" must be modeled and
taught in the classroom in order for students to be college ready
and successful in their careers.
