I like teaching, learning about teaching, and reading others\' teaching philosophies.
Teaching is like lighting a bonfire, or teaching is like giving students wings that explain, instruct, and inspire.
When I look at my own teaching is as stuffing a backpack. I think in these backpacks, students carry with them the knowledge and skills they will need for their journey through life.
When students come to my classes, their backpacks have already been partially filled by families, life experiences, and other instructors.
The backpacks are deep and sometimes it\'s hard to see what they are carrying in there.
There is a distinct difference between learning and memorization. I endeavour to convince students to understand concepts so that they may apply these concepts in a variety of situations, rather than memorize steps to solve a particular problem.
I expect students to want to learn and do much of the work during the learning process. With this expectation, I can\'t accept the title of a "teacher." I try to act as a facilitator in the learning process, rather than the deliverer of information.
I encourage students to find personalized methods to understand and retain concepts, and I assist them by providing my own customized examples for explanation of concepts that elude them.
In addition to different learning processes, I often find that students must simply be given the confidence to experiment in the application of newly gained knowledge and to ask questions to promote individual thinking.
Finally, students deserve respect just as any other person, and there must be mutual respect between the students and me. I strive to earn students\' respect in a variety of ways, given that respect cannot simply be awarded
I take a sincere interest in the well-being of students and interact with them on professional and social level. I am convinced that social interaction with students develops a rapport with them and they are more comfortable when asking for assistance while in the classroom. In everything that I do, I want to be considered a fair and reasonable person.
Maintaining good order in classrooms is one of the most difficult tasks facing me as teacher.
The task has become more difficult over the past few decades as young students’ attitudes to people in authority have changed dramatically.
Some of the changes have led to greater self-confidence in students.
Others such as the acceptance of violence to achieve ends, attitudes to substance abuse and an increasing lack of respect for authority have made classroom management and life in school generally more difficult, and more demanding, on us (the teachers) who are charged with maintaining a positive learning environment.
So I set some practices to enable me to maintain classroom control.
The following set of organizational practices helped to establish effective control of the classroom :
It has been noticed lately that a few students do not follow the classroom rules properly, deprive their classmates of their right to follow the teachers’ instructions or even the explanation, to pay enough attention, do not show much respect to the place and to the persons around, use unaccepted language.
Such students need to be reminded of what they shouldn’t do in class, what would be the consequence of an offence.
producing strange sounds as a reaction or as a way to make fun of others.
step by step we shall be the best
