Personal philosophy of education
my opinion, schools need to exercise
voting right by ensuring they fully perform public opinion in diverse instances.
In our context of sitting arrangement John Dewey emphasized on the consideration
of student opinion so as to create cohesion and good learning environment (Dewey
1938). Efficient communication among the student teachers
and other initiatives brings accountability in the policies they adopt. John
Dewy stressed on various aspect such as self action. This is a concept that
regarded to human being, animals possessing power of their own which initiates
their actions. It promotes the ideology of seat arrangement and façade of the
class will be done with respect to stakeholder demands who are likely to be
teachers and students. Another concept he overemphasized was about the virtue
of transaction. It is where modes of descriptions and naming are applied to
deal with multiple aspects and phase of action regardless independent entities.
He also emphasized on the interaction
concept. This factor would help in the sitting arrangement as well as class
appearance due to its impact on decision role .It influences through promotion
cohesive environment in the study environment. I believe in Dewey’s opinion on
the aspects he stresses about the
schools. The stakeholders should have full freedom to make important decisions
that affect the learning activities in regard to their demands for institutions
to be effective.
Methods:As a teacher, I would employ teaching methods that could be effective to
students. The methods should consider the issues of discipline among the
students, perceptions that students have towards me and the needs of each
student in the class. To have good practices of teaching, I will be friendly to my
student to develop strong relationships with them. It will enhance good
communication and understanding to what I offer to the students in the class. I will also give my student freedom of
expression in the class so as to create cohesion between us. My students will have the freedom to ask
questions and give their opinions to matters that affect them in the class.
As a teacher, there is a need to
have a good mastery of information that in order to give my students the best answers
to any question s that may arise. I will do the best to seek the correlation that
exists between the subject and the modern occurrence to offer their student the
best concepts that bind them to the world. For example, during the social
studies I would encourage the students to explore the diversity within the
class population so that they can better understand the subject. I have embraced
the use of psychology to reach my students. This has helped me to understand the
needs of every student in the classroom. Proper evaluation of the class and
curriculum adjustments will enable the students to better understand the
concepts given to them by the teacher. I use more than the text book for
teaching. I should ensure that students are engaged in conversations and
projects that will give them real application for what they learn in the class.
As a teacher in science subjects I engage my students in many experimental
works and practical where they can learn and apply the basics that I teach them.
It opens up the minds of my students to have a wide scope of things.
Enhancement of proper relationship
with my students by closely monitoring their excellence in all fields has built
up trust for my students in me. My concern to students is mainly based on their
conduct and mental development to enable them develops ideas and strategies in
Arrangement:The arrangement will be based on the performance of the students.
Students who record poor performance in their exams are to sit with well
performing students who can offer them help in their weak areas. Class arrangement has also considered other
factors such as students’ personal defects to ensure that those with special
needs are catered for. For example, some of the students may have hearing and
eye sight problems and, therefore, are positioned close to the teaching point
in the class. This has given them an easier time in their studies since they do
not strain to see or listen as I teach.
During the class arrangement, my desk
as a teacher should always remain at the front to enable me has regular check on the students. Primary
grade teaching should provide the students with opportunities where they can
group up in circles or even rows. I also ensure that my students are allowed to
move out of their desks to burn the excess energy. Students in the upper grades
should be arranged in rows but should however, be allowed to group up at times.
Classrooms should have paths that will allow me to move from the front to the
back for proper control of the students. Creation of a good environment in the
classroom should put décor position into consideration. The bulletin boards
should be appealing to the students by having engaging and attractive colors to
students. I should give my students the chance to voice their opinions to
whatever should be posted on the décor. The classroom walls should be utilized
for fun quotes, educational materials and putting of multi-cultural posters.
Code of Conduct:As teachers, I should enhance professional code of conducts in
the classroom. Equal treatment of my students irrespective of gender, ethnic
backgrounds and cultural practices are the core ethical practices I have
embraced in my profession of teaching. All students in the classroom should
enjoy equal benefits and have equal rights to voice their opinions.
Students should also be given equal privileges
regardless of their economic background. I also respect the diversity of my
students by showing them they are equally important and no one is better than
the other. I have developed strategies where my students from diverse cultural
and ethnic backgrounds can discuss their opinions together and interact to
boost their relationships. My class has also developed a forum where students
can discuss the adverse effects resulting from tribalism and racial
discrimination. I also encourage the
share of ideas with regard to the students’ backgrounds on the basis of
ethnicity and cultures as a way of showing them that all cultures are equally
main role is to offer my students guidance in their academics and also share
the life experience to motivate them. I teach my students’ different facts and
skills important in future life. I also guide the students for better social
In conclusion, I have always read
many books and arts of writing where I learn new ideas and skills in my career.
I have also accepted my students to challenge me with questions as and ideas of
what is familiar them. This has always
given me the chance to find out more about the ideas of my students and I have
always met myself learning things that are new each day. I have also been able
to share my experience with others in my profession so as to come up with new
ways that have resulted in success to others. This has always made me a
long-life learner as it has given me desire to know new things each day.
