Summary

As educators we need to listen to students to understand and gauge their interests. We must instill in our students the passion for knowledge through inquiry. It is important we know our students. We as teachers are seen as the facilitators of the learning process of students. In my experience I emphasize the need to scaffold learning by breaking down the content and then encouraging students to move forward once they have understood each step. At the same time we must cater for the children of different learning needs, differentiating accordingly and working with all students in our classroom, by integrating and linking our unit plan with the curriculum.

Educating students is the teacher’s main aim. It’s important to instill the value of education in students and show them that they are responsible for their own learning. I am keen to take on this position to make a difference in the lives of students by improving and optimizing their education by breaking down concepts to help assist students with to gaining skills, improve understanding, build on their prior knowledge and cater for the needs of all students in the classroom
