Professional Philosophy of EducationElizabeth BrayEDU100: Issues in Education (EDA1623B)Dr.: John Richard Kay6/19/2016 Part 1: Future CareerMy future career interest is to be a public elementary school teacher of between grade 2 and 5. I think this career is a good fit for me because I am passionate about teaching children in the age bracket of five to eleven. I would love to guide the children in this age group and help them love learning at a very young age. I believe that with the knowledge and skills that my bachelor’s degree will help me acquire I will be fully equipped to teach elementary school students and instill memorable educational experience in them and prepare them for their future learning life in middle and high school.I also know how to communicate with students at the elementary level to the extent that my interaction with them will help them in understanding the basic concepts or principles in mathematics, writing, reading, social studies, and science. In addition, my patience will help in making sure that the concepts I teach are understood no matter how long it takes. I also understand that students have various levels of understanding. Some grasp concepts fast while some are slow learners and they need one-on-one teacher’s attention to grasp basic concepts. I possess the quality of being organized and I will make sure that I attend to all the academic needs of my students by ensuring that I follow all my teaching schedules and providing equal time to all my students as well as my coworkers, teaching assistants, and parents. I am also humble and I will be able to lower my adult understanding to those of my young students and accept my wrong doings to my students and coworkers. I know I am not perfect and I will be ready to be corrected even with my young students. I am capable of adapting to the changing classroom settings as well as teaching outside my teaching schedule. Sometimes a teacher may plan to teach in a certain way but if the preferred teaching method does not result to the desired outcomes then it better to change the methods and adapt methods that will benefit all the students. Finally, I am creative and this is a quality that is needed to deal with young students with young and developing minds. My creativity in teaching will help in expanding the imagination of elementary students. I will achieve this by making the classroom exciting and fun to be in for the students.Part 2: Professional PhilosophyThe reasons for education are many and relative. But I think the main purpose of education is to have people who are literate and learned. It is commonly said that knowledge is power. Through education people get to acquire information and skills that they can use to better their lives and that of the society or the world. Education makes the lives of people better and simple (Strauss, 2015). Through education various technology and innovations have been invented that have been used to improve various sectors in the society such as health, schooling system, industries, and economy. All the changes that have taken place in the society have been the result of education that has enabled people to think critically and intensively to solve the various societal and political issues throughout the past centuries.Students learn through acquiring, processing, and retaining information that they are provided with by teachers or instructors. The learning process can take place through observation of behaviors. Learning through observation involves a stimulus-response mechanism. In other words, learning occurs when a student’s behavior changes. Additionally, learning takes place when the brain processes and interprets information through critical thinking process. Furthermore, learning can take place when a student develops problem-solving skills through following certain set rules (Reigeluth, 2013).As a teacher I will assist in the learning process by designing the learning environment to enhance learning through observation by presenting information to the students so that they can demonstrate that they have understood the concept. Additionally, I will provide opportunities for the students to connect new information with the already learnt information. This will involve group discussion so that the students can share information among themselves as I help them with problem solving skills. To do all this I will need a graduate degree in elementary education and pass state certification exams in PRAXIS (an overlap between practical and theory) (bls.gov)Part 3: Standards in Chosen FieldThe first standard that a professional teacher should have is to employ liberal education to all students. This involves communicating effectively through speaking, listening, writing, reading, and through visual contact. This helps in making sure that all the information that a teacher wants to pass to the students are understood and appreciated. The teacher should also be able to respect the fact that students have different learning abilities and that they are from different socio-cultural backgrounds which influence their point of view on different issues. Secondly, a teacher should engage and respond to students’ needs. Thisinvolves respecting, caring, and communicating with all students. The teacher should be in position of recognizing the challenges that the students face and use the available sources to solve the problems so as to meet their academic expectations. The third standard is responsibility and efficiency. A teacher should be accountable for all that they do in school and especially with the students. To the students a teacher is a role model. Therefore, the teacher should make sure that they are responsible for all that students do in the classroom and provide explanation with regard to the academic progress of the students when need be. Furthermore, the standards help teachers to achieve their professional philosophy and to be effective in teaching.ReferencesKindergarten and Elementary School Teachers: Occupational Outlook Handbook: : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

I do have a few critiques for you. First, I noticed you tend to use the words "additionally" and "furthermore" often in your paragraphs. What I would suggest is that you find other words to that have the same meaning (synonyms) to replaces some of those or remove them in certain areas. Using these words often can make it seem like you are trying to just fill the word count and they are just added in as a space filler. I also saw what looked like an acronym "PRAXIS" in your paper. You seem to explain what exactly it is in the paper, but I wasn't entirely sure. I would say be more explanative about that, because I was a little confused. Thirdly, you mention getting the degree necessary to be successful at your profession, what degree is that? I would add that in to your beginning paragraph and explain in depth how it will be a huge help for you in your chosen profession. Finally, we were required to use the textbook as a reference and I am not seeing it in the paper or in your reference page. I do not mean to say you did not follow directions but I would suggest making sure you reading the instructions for the final to make sure you do or do not need the textbook as a required resource. Minus those few things, I believe you're on a good start with your rough draft. You seem to understand the sources you have and how the relate to the overall points of the paper. Overall I enjoyed your paper and believe if you keep up what you are doing and tweak it a bit, that you will do just fine! Good Luck!(TEACHER FEEDBACK BELOW WITH MY OLD SCORE) Very good effort here Elizabeth. Your paper identifies a future position in education including the type of organization and comprehensively explains why this career is a good fit though I think using the one paragraph listed in the structure tips would have been the best bet. The second paragraph is a bit imbalanced and there is quite a bit of "I" used which always a good idea to keep to a bare minimum. It comprehensively describes the professional philosophy on teaching and learning, addresses all required questions and discusses the standards in the professional field, including at least four with explanations of why these standards are important to their philosophy, though some minor details are missing as to how those 4 relate to your philosophy (two paragraphs there would have been the best way, see structure tips). You display meticulous comprehension and organization of syntax and mechanics, such as spelling and grammar, and the written work contains no errors and is very easy to understand though there are a few typos here and there and I think minimal use of "I" is always the best approach to writing any formal paper. The APA formatting is correct throughout the paper, however, layout contains a few minor errors with missing direct quotes which should be used to support ideas (as opposed to indirect quotes) and you didn't cite the book as assigned (rest looks pretty good with APA:). Plus, the length of the paper is equivalent to the required number of correctly formatted pages and you used the required number of scholarly sources to support ideas. Last, all sources on the reference page are used and cited correctly within the body of the assignment but again the book wasn't included as assigned. I think this was a very good paper and you showed a solid improvement. :) (0.88 / 1) Identifies a Position in Education That is of Interest and the Type of Organization That is of Interest and Explain Why This Career Would Be a Good Fit Proficient - Identifies future position in education including the type of organization and explains why this career is a good fit.
