Welcome to my Electronic Professional Teaching Portfolio,
To me, the learning process is two-directional, one where the teacher and the students work together to create an environment that promotes meaningful learning. I am a strong believer in the constructivist approach to learning. I believe that as a teacher I need to help students make connections to knowledge and experiences they’re already familiar with. I think that by teaching this way, information becomes real; it makes sense to the students and makes it meaningful.
believe that the teacher and student play important roles in the classroom.
Without one, the other wouldn’t exist. While teachers are expected
to be the only educators in the classroom, I believe that students could
equally be considered educators. Students give feedback all of the time,
they tell teachers what they’re doing right and wrong, how they
can improve, and what methods work best in the classroom. I believe
that education is successful when students desire to be lifelong learners.
Education goes beyond the school building, the classroom door, and the
teacher. When students yearn for a deeper understanding of themselves
and the world around them, I believe education has succeeded.
