TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MY TEACHING STYLE

In choosing the professions of speech pathology and education, I have considered the impact I can have on the lives of all those who enter my classroom. However, I have also realized that in order to truly influence the students I meet, I need to help them attain an intrinsic desire to learn and flourish both outside of and within the classroom. I feel that it is a teacher’s job to not only teach students how to learn, but to also inspire them to become individuals who value themselves and each other in a community where the goal to learn and succeed unifies and motivates each student to become the best that they can be. In order to help students find this desire within themselves, I believe it is necessary to lead a child centered classroom. That means that in my classroom, I am a partner in learning. I learn as much from my students, as they learn from me. Through discovery learning, small group work, and whole class discussions, each student feels that they are a valued member of our learning community. One example of how I use discovery learning and small groups is in a science unit about monarch butterflies, that I have shared. This lesson in particular focuses on the difference between butterflies and moths. It would be quick and easy to show the students a Venn diagram of the similarities and differences and to have them copy it in their notebooks, however this lesson allows students to observe, discuss, and discover the differences between these insects and then requires them to use their creativity and what they learn to assemble a butterfly or moth with the resources available to them in small groups. In my learning environment, students feel important, comfortable, challenged and excited to learn. To help each student feel like an important member of this community, I incorporate their own interests and needs into the mandated curriculum. By including topics of interest into the content, students become immersed in the subject at hand and slowly begin to develop an inherent desire to learn. I not only use students’ interests in planning instruction, but also differentiate tasks and learning objectives to meet each need. The activities and lessons I share will include a variety of assessments, games, and individual and small group work designed to help students in specific content area. I make use of individual conferencing, as well, to make sure that each student is confidently meeting unit goals. It is my goal that in my classroom, every student will master the content at hand in a confident and engaging way. The activities I share will help each student learn grade level standard in an interesting and personalized manner. I hope you enjoy!
