My teaching philosophy

The following points outline how I am to ensure my teaching is approach on a daily basis. I have been required to consider my teaching philosophy since my first year at university. Some of these points are still what appeared on my first documentation of my philosophy. Others are some that have eventuated from a relfection just last week. I think that is what makes a good teaching philosophy, one that changes to the needs of the environment in which I am teaching.

 

I envision my daily approach to teaching to:

  • Be fluid with the chidlren’s needs, the needs of their family and my own needs.
  • Be responsive to the learning interests of the children in the classroom.
  • Be considerate of religious, cultural and other beliefs and understandings.
  • Be responsive to the diverse needs of each child in my classroom.
  • Be responsive to the technological world in which we live, and to teach children to become critical users of such technology.
  • Integrate numeracy and litearcy learning opportunities throughout the teaching day.
  •  Maintain an environment of fairness and justice for all children in my room.
  • Ensure that for the six hours of the school day that children spend with me is satisfying, challenging and exciting.
  • Ensure that learning is a journey for all children, who are part of a community of learners.

I may add to this throughout this year… stay tuned!
