Commitment to Students

My Teaching Philosophy

The role of a teacher is to take the curriculum set out by the Ontario Ministry of Education and use it to educate students in ways that are meaningful to them. Teachers create opportunities for students to be involved in their own education and to be successful. Educators need to teach with equity and respect, taking the individual factors that may have an impact on student success in their classroom into account. They should strive to inform students of what it means to be a member of Canadian society, but also incorporate a diverse range of other cultures and traditions if they can enrich the knowledge and experiences of students in their class. Teachers should practice professionalism by bringing their own knowledge and experiences into the classroom. They should use these to inform their pedagogy, their use of the curriculum, their application of evaluation and assessment, as well as their judgments inside and outside of the classroom. 

During my own elementary experiences, I had a number of teachers who created opportunities for me to succeed in every way possible. Many of these teachers would incorporate my interests and the interests of all of their students into their lessons and strive to make things interesting, approachable and meaningful. During my practicum I found that although it was a difficult task, if I created lessons and assignments that students could approach in ways that were meaningful to them, they were excited about learning and more successful as a result. It is important that students know you are working with them to achieve success by providing them with every opportunity you can manage. 

I will strive to create classrooms that provide opportunities for students to succeed as a group, as well as on an individual level. I will empower those with a strong sense of themselves and I will encourage and inspire those that are struggling. In my classrooms, students will be excited by education and surprised by what they are capable of. I will constantly work to help students realize their full potentials and provide them with the tools and the steps to achieve them.
