4th Grade Teacher
My Teaching Philosophy
I believe that it takes a special kind of person to work with young children today. Children today are faced with challenges and decisions that are often overwhelming. In order to help these young students, I feel a teacher should develop a good relationship with their students- being a friend, as well as a leader. In this respect , I feel that I should set good examples for the students that I teach. Children learn through example and will follow when lead with dignity and respect. I will respect the needs of my students and in doing so, I will gain respect from them. I also feel that it is important as a teacher to help my students excel. I will help my students set personal goals and I will do my utmost best to see that my students work to achieve these goals. Finally, and probably most importantly, I feel that ALL students can learn. I will strive to teach and bring out the best in all of my students, no matter what difficulties and challenges they are faced with.
