From a Dream to Reality

When I decided to go back to school my objective was not only to increase my knowledge and receive a degree, but I decided that the only profession for me to pursue would be to earn a degree in teaching. Not because a business or computer degree would be out of my grasp, I can learn anything necessary to do a job, but because by earning a degree in teaching I would be able to fulfill a dream of mine that I had held since my own days in school. I want to be able to help children reach for the dreams in their lives. That is the reason that I have begun this program of study, to fulfill my life ambitions of becoming a teacher so that I can help inspire children to reach for their dreams that they are holding. Even though I’m starting college with this plan of being a teacher later than my colleges, I will be able to help them and my future students by sharing my life experiences that have occurred so far.

I have always had a way with children, they seem to be comfortable around me and I like taking the time to listen and talk to them so that they are able to express what is on their mind. I believe that by being an available positive role model to them in their elementary school years I can make a difference in their life. Children are very special and I believe that it takes someone that is more interested in helping the child than in their job or the paycheck, to help make a child to succeed. The time I have had in life to observe people it has become apparent to me that if a child is not succeeding in school, there is a very good chance that as an adult, they will not succeed either. Though if that child has a positive role model in their life this may increase that child’s success rate. When that child becomes an adult, they may have a much easier time succeeding in life than a child who was not encouraged nor had a good role model to help them to succeed.

In this area we have many single parent households where the mother is the only adult role model for the child. As a male teacher it will be my responsibility to also be a positive role model for those children because they deserve the opportunity to learn and grow up with all their dreams ahead of them. Whether they come from a single or dual parent home the children will be able to talk to their parent(s) and me to develop their skills and overcome obstacles in their life so that they can learn as much as they possible can to achieve at any endeavors that are ahead of them.

To be successful at this myself, I will have to use several different philosophies in my teaching skills. Behaviorism is an important part of anyone’s teaching philosophy because if the children are being noisy or are not respecting one another it will interfere with everyone’s capabilities of learning. I don’t want them to stop asking questions or expressing themselves because that is part of the learning process too, but I will help them understand the right and wrong ways of...
