Philosophy of Education
Through the classes I have taken at Strayer university and my experiences in the online, I have developed a personal teaching philosophy that will be implemented into my future classrooms. I am constantly being prepared for an all-encompassing classroom, and either way, I will look at the students’ needs and prepare lessons accordingly. One of my goals is to use preemptive and supportive behavior strategies more than corrective. I hope to achieve this by engaging lessons and clear expectations. Another goal I have for myself is to be impartial to all the students. For example, if there is a need to correct student behavior, after the reprimand has been fulfilled, I plan to give the student a fresh start and treat him/her as equally as other students.
From my educational experiences, I know how valuable teacher encouragement and enthusiasm is for personal motivation. I intend to motivate students while teaching them to be intrinsically motivated through challenging yet supportive lessons and assignments. As an Adult teacher, I desire to help the students understand and continue to learn about themselves, while developing an appreciation for whatever subject I am teaching. Additionally, I aim to prepare my future students for other college writing classes and help them develop the skills they need for writing as an graduate level student. I believe it is also important to help the students develop their social and interaction skills, and will do this with group work and activities. As a prospective educator, I believe my philosophy and teaching styles may change throughout my teaching career and I want to remain receptive to suggestions and open for improvement.
