My primary belief is that teaching is a true test of scholarship and that a teacher should provide a classroom environment that is conducive to encouraging students to express their ideas and actively participate in the learning process. The concept that each student is responsible for learning in the class and should enjoy the interaction in the classroom is key to this belief. The student should be academically challenged by the intellectual discussion of the course material and be able to comprehend its value as part of preparation for life and a successful career. I want to have the student complete a course of instruction and feel that the knowledge gained is worthwhile and will contribute to their success in achieving their goals.
I also believe that an effective teacher has a complete knowledge of the subject matter being taught as well an understanding of the underlying pedagogical theory. It is the teacher’s responsibility to remain current in their field of expertise by reviewing current literature, attending conferences, maintaining memberships in appropriate professional organizations and consulting with colleagues. A teacher must not only know the subject matter, but the best way to present the subject matter to the students to stimulate their though process. The student should be encouraged to seek external sources to further their knowledge.
In addition, I believe that an effective teacher should attempt to gain an understanding of each student’s capabilities and their level of knowledge that they bring into the classroom. Each student should be encouraged to gain additional skills and develop new insights. As each student is different and various teaching techniques should be employed to reach out and facilitate the learning process. A relationship should be built that emphasizes trust and a commitment to the learning process. The student should feel that a partnership does exist with the teacher and that mutual respect is a key to success in the classroom. The teacher must be committed to the success of each student insure that the teacher is available to the student outside of class.
In summary, I want the student to leave my classes with the following thoughts:
The teacher personally cared for me as an individual and appreciated my understanding of the subject matter.
My contributions to the classroom discussions and the subject were valued.
The classroom environment encouraged my responsibility for learning the subject matter.
The material is important and will be a factor in my success in life goals
