What lead me to becoming a 3rd grade teacher?
My experiences before becoming a teacher included:
Tutoring children
Worked with grades 3-6 at a summer camp
Working with children in classrooms
Volunteering as a youth leader at my church
Learning techniques and research on how to teach children
It's important for me to be currently informed about educating 3rd graders because....
1. I need to know what they are being tested on
2. I need to make sure I am up-to-date on technology that can be used to further educate children
3. I need to be informed on new findings in research on child development
What I think about when planning lessons ...
*How do children learn based on research?
*What are children ready for or mature enough to handle?
*What grabs their attention?
*How can I teach children that all learns in different ways?
This video is a spoken word from a teachers perspective on "Why I Teach" & even though I don't agree with all of his strategies for handling things in the classroom I still think his overall message is good.
