Three deeply felt learning’s from this program:
1.) I have learned what impact teachers can truly make on the lives of children and families. I have learned that teachers have their challenging days, just as everyone else but that the job of a teacher is rewarding and can be a lot of hard work but fun too.
2.) I have learned that it’s important to always keep up to date with new information/knowledge/statistics about children, schools, child development, etc. It’s important to always do research and find out the latest information on the important topics so you can stay up to date; that’s part of being an effective teacher.
3.) I have learned how important it is to be an effective communicator. In order to be an effective teacher, you must be willing and know how to communicate effectively because communication is a huge part of every teacher’s career. We must know how to socialize and work with parents and know how to speak to them so there are no misunderstandings.
One long term goal:
1.) My long-term goal is to become familiar with new state regulations, legislation, laws, etc to effectively maintain compliance with federal and state regulations.
