The Importance of Teaching
Education should be a part of everyone's life. A good education offers something for everyone, whether it be on the simple level or a more complex one. Education should provide provide an opportunity for students to develop a strong sense of creativity, a high self esteem, and a life long respect for learning. Education should help students establish a strong sense of confidence in themselves. A teacher will be one factor that helps a student learn and progress along their way through life. Teachers combine their own ideas with other people's to be able to give a good education to their students.
My philosophy on education exists with my ideas combined with others. I agree with Rousseau in that children are neither good nor evil. They can be either. It's how they are brought up that determines that. Children should be in an environment that encourages a desire to learn and make moral choices. Rousseau also brought up the idea of one to one teaching with hands on experience, and I believe that is the best way for the students to learn.
Plato and Socrates bring up good ideas about health, soul, and learning. They said that music softens the soul and gymnastics hardens the soul. One without the other is no good. Their attitude toward health is concerned with productiveness, but most of all agree with their learning techniques, They believe in reading and speech because if one hears good, one will do good.
I believe in the Pragmatists view that we learn best through experience....
