Teaching can become an ultimate job
It may seem difficult for some to see just how teaching can become an ultimate job for myself, let alone anyone for that matter. It is easy to see why certain people have this kind of opinion of this profession. For one, depending on the career path and position, the salary is not very enticing in proportion to the work that is required. It is a thankless job at times and requires a lot of patience. Yet there are certain intangibles that make teaching the ultimate profession for me.
The simple fact that as a teacher I will have the opportunity to get in touch with and shape the mind of today’s youth to allow them to see the wonderful opportunities for them in this world is worth more than any remuneration that the job can provide. The satisfaction from being able to help young children fulfill their dreams and realize their full potential is something that cannot be measured by dollars and cents. It is this same dedication that prompts me into applying Early Childhood Montessori Education.
It is this philosophy that I have which will help me succeed as a teacher even if I have to deal with diverse student populations. My passion and drive for teaching will help me overcome any challenges that I will face as a teacher. My dream to help children realize their potentials will ensure that each and every one of my students will have an equal opportunity to succeed. Children are very impressionable and it is easier to be able to reach out to them if one possesses an understanding of their cultural background.
Having taught daycare with Hispanics, white and African American students, I feel that I am well equipped to deal with culturally diverse classrooms. The patience and communication skills that I have developed in majoring teaching for kindergarten classes have also helped me in this field. Not everyone may think that teaching is a glamorous job, and they may be right. The important thing, however, lies in knowing what good one can do in this world and taking the first step in achieving that.
While I may be at a point that is still years away from achieving my goal, this process plan is a definite first step towards my goal. Though I may be challenged to a certain extent, this has never prevented me in the past from becoming the best that I can be. I hope that one day my efforts in wanting to become a teacher will also inspire those that I will teach and show them the value of hard work and perseverance.
