Personal and Professional Philosophy Orientation and Education Theory.
Vivian Hamilton
November 24,2014

Professional Philosophy Orientation
* Behaviorist Theory B.F. Skinner (1950) believes that it is human nature that we behave in such a way that we would receive rewards or favorable things based on our behavior.
I have adopted this theory as my professional philosophy orientation. In life we are granted with positive or negative reinforcement in both our personal life and professional life.
Professional Philosophy of Education
Education is the means of the " social continuity of life" ( Dewey, 1938)
My philosophy of education is similar to philosopher John Dewey. I believe education should be taught in way for our students to comprehend and apply their skills and knowledge according to real life situations.
My philosophy vs. School purpose.
The purpose of school has evolved over time. 21st Century schools focus more on.....
*teaching to the test
* technology
* meeting state standards
* making other accomodations

A philosophy is defined as the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality and existence. Without a philosophy or vision there is not a solid foundation to base your morals or values upon.
My professional philosophy is the progressivism theory. This theory includes ...
* address community needs
* uses scientific principles
* adapts education to the needs of the individual student.
( Dayton-Wood, 2012).
My philosophy vs. School purpose cont.
Advocates of the teacher –directed management believe that students become
decision makers
by internalizing the rules and guidelines that are given to them by responsible and caring adults. Teaching the student as a
is the key component.
Life is full of experiences, and we learn through life experiences. Teaching our students through experience is what matters in the 21st century. Teaching to the individual student as a whole to help them become productive working citizen is important. Instilling morals and values into our youth will only produce intellectual growth. The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness. ( Chan, 2014)
