A TEACHERS CREED

A hundred years from now,

It will not matter

What my back account was,

The sort of house I lived in,

Or the kind of car I drove.

But the word may be different,

Because I was important

In the life of child.

Ten Commandments for Teachers


1. Do not feel absolutely certain of anything.

2. Do not think it worthwhile to proceed by concealing evidence,

for the evidence is sure to come to light.

3. Never try to discourage thinking for you are sure to succeed.

4. When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your

husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by

argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon

authority is unreal and illusory.

5. Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are

always contrary authorities to be found.

6. Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious,

for if you do the opinions will suppress you.

7. Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now

accepted was once eccentric.

8. Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent that in passive

agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the

former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.

9. Be scrupulously truthful, even if the truth is inconvenient, for

it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.

10. Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in

a fools paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.


My Teaching
Philosophy

While being an expert in ones content area is imperative, if one does not

understand how to best communicate ones knowledge to his or her students


then

the expertise is useless. One of the most important elements to


communicate to

students is that English is significant to their lives and their futures. One
should

strive to create a meaningful classroom environment for their students. In

order to produce a meaningful environment and acquire a significant learning

outcome, it is important to create real world connections, to incorporate


student

-centered learning, to utilize technology, to generate continual growth as a

teacher, and to maintain a strict control over the classroom while remaining

approachable.

First, it is critical to create real world connections in the classroom while

producing a student-centered learning environment. If students do not


believe

they will use classroom material in their future, they see lessons as
insignificant,

pointless and not worth their time. In order to achieve ones objectives, a
teacher

must make the material relevant to their students. English is significant to


every

students future. Whether one is creating resumes, writing job applications,

applying to college, composing scientific reports, creating a business


presentation, etc., English is crucial to achieving ones goal. A teacher
should

explain how each lesson will aid students in their future endeavors. It is also

important encourage students to use English in a way that is meaningful to


them.

One way to create a lesson that is meaningful to each student is to provide


them

with a choice. For example, if one wants their students to become better
writers

or practice writing conventions one might offer the option to choose from a
list

of various types of writing, rather than requiring a particular one which many

students might not find significant. Students should be at the forefront of


their

learning. They should be experiencing and acquiring knowledge rather than

simply listening to it. Hands-on lessons help make material come to life for

students.

One excellent way to engage students in the classroom and create real
word

connections is to utilize technology and maintain ones current knowledge as


a

teacher. Today, students are constantly enveloped in technology. Using

technology in the classroom spawns student interest and connects lessons to

their everyday lives. Incorporating technology in the classroom is a must, not

only to engage students but to prepare them for the rapidly growing and

changing world. Technology should be used in every way possible in the


class-

rooms. In order to maintain this goal, it is important to continue ones


education

as a teacher. Teachers need to stay informed and current in their knowledge


of

technology as they do their content area.

Finally, one cannot attain any goal in their classroom unless it is well-

managed. As a teacher, controlling ones classroom environment is


essential.
One needs to produce a strict learning atmosphere. Educators must, first,

demand respect from students and then prove to them that he or she
deserves

that respect. One must create specific classroom regulations and not waver.

However, while it is imperative to maintain a firm control, it is also necessary


to

maintain approachable to students. It is important that students feel

comfortable asking questions and that they see a teacher as an adult that
cares

and one that they can trust. It is necessary to maintain the role of an
authority

figure while communicating respect to students and relating to them. If a

teacher is respected, students are more likely to adhere to ones rules and
take

class seriously.

The best teachers are those that never stop learning and continue striving
to

improve. It is important to realize that teaching is full of surprises and new

situations and one must be ready to adapt, react and discover new
strategies.

What remains true, it is the necessity to create a meaningful learning

environment and to understand how to relate ones knowledge to students.
