I am a proficient high school teacher taught physical sciences and biology from past eight years for area schools. My teaching skills and classroom management are geared towards urban disadvantaged students to meet the need of a role of facilitator and mentor in addition to normal classroom management skills. I have worked many years in the area of University biomedical research and Chemical Industry Analytical section setting as a research associate.
As a science instructor of alternative public educator, I have worn multiple hats or roles when instructing. Knowing when to wear the right hat influences learning experiences. Three instructor roles that I have already identified are of being yourself , being role model and being the expert in the subject area to be taught in the classroom by managing student behavior and intellectual needs to succeed in life. The roles that I have experienced are as as follows. 1. Taskmaster: Sets clear standards of performance for the students to attain by supervising all student activity. Lessons are specifically identified to meet state standard and little deviation occurs within the lesson. 2. Salesperson: Stresses the importance of all program information. Every detail is important and is useful to the students, if not now, then later on. The lessons are taught from the perspective that if it is in the curriculum, it must be taught. 3. Cheerleader: Sells the personality and friendship of the instructor to the students. The instructor encourages and provides only positive reinforcement to students. 4. Constructivist : Promoted social constructivism by assuming the role of facilitator to provide learning atmosphere where learning takes place with reference to cultural aspect of students by constructing meaningful lessons including real life experience. 5. Reality Therapist: Tends to support the students to learn information at their own pace. Provide encouragement and corrective action, as they are needed.
