My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

At the beginning of this course I was unsure

that Primary Teaching was for me and I still I

am…

…but I have been learning what it means and what it takes to be a teacher.


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

The main reason I would want to be a teacher is so I can serve children and make a difference in someone’s life.


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

Just like the teacher’s I have had, I want to be passionate and caring about teaching.

“In everything set them an example by doing what is good. In your teaching show integrity, seriousness, and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned…”

Titus 2:7-8


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

I believe that being a

teacher is one of the

most rewarding jobs if

not the most. This

position of responsibility

is not to be taken lightly

but to be treated as a

privilege.


The most important aspect i have learnt about being a teacher

The most important aspect I have learnt about being a teacher:

There is so much more than meets the eye!!


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

Students cannot learn if a teacher just stands in front of the class and shouts out information.


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

Teachers help students “acquire the skills and knowledge needed to access the many information resources available”. Thus they are making sure the classroom is “learner-centred”.

Fried, R. (2001)

Discipline is important

as “minor infractions

and repeated

disruptions are the

most problematic”. They

are a hindrance to other

students trying to learn

and upset the

atmosphere of the

classroom.

Arbuckle, C. & Little, E. (2004)


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

It is important to accept every student’s culture and encourage that culture within school life.


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

Parent participation is crucial when

supporting and caring about a child’s

education.

Without it, students’ learning will suffer as what they are learning at school is not

acknowledged at home.


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

Children learn best when they are learning visually, auditory and moving at the same time.


My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

“I love the light bulb moments… when the students say ‘I’ve got it’.”

- Tim Johns (2004)

By providing a supportive and nurturing

environment, teachers contribute to

students’ sense of self-worth, enthusiasm for

learning and optimism for the future.

My changing views of what it means to me to be a teacher

I have learned that the role of a teacher is so

fundamental in every child’s life. I know that

at the moment I do not have a full grasp of

everything that I teacher is and I look

forward to continuing on through this course

and discovering so many more things.
