As an educator, I have learned the importance of creativity and enjoyment for my profession. For me to deliver my assigned instruction it is important to own my educational development. In this, I continue to educate myself in the areas of interest and psychology. Therefore, I have a wealth of resources that assist in delivering student centered teaching; this helps students recognize the benefits of learning and what it has to offer.
It is also my responsibility to model ethical and professional behavior. I articulate the importance of respect, patience and responsibility in my courses to allow my students to feel comfortable and safe. My attention to demonstrate my expectations assist in the success of my class. I enjoy the discussion of diversity and exceptionalities in all of my courses; this is the 21st century; every classroom will have diversity and some exceptionalities. As I strive to build an active community, I find that when my students work as a team, everyone learns. Moreover, by developing a classroom atmosphere that fosters group interaction based on moral ethics, students’ are open to other viewpoints and opinions.
As an educator who teaches face-to-face and online, it is important to be focused, and organized remembering to supply timely feedback and to stay verbally connected. Students have a sense of confidence when they know their grades and the availability of their instructor. Further, it is imperative to build relationships with students’ providing resources to those who need academic and personal assistance. As a life- long learner, I continue to seek strategies to improve my teaching; I improve by university development, conferences, research and student participation and assessment.
