  • 1. My philosophy “Intelligence plus character that is the goal of true education”( Dr. Martin LutherKing, Jr) As an ECE, I want to discuss about the two most important aspects inchildren’s education: “intelligence “ and” character”. I believe “A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity,knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils"( Ever Garrison).Teacher’s job is not aboutteaching knowledge, it is about encouraging students to think and learn by themselves.Maria Montessori states,“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interestto activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences. Such experiences arenot just play. It is work he must do in order to grow up.” Children want to learnbecause they are carious about the world. The prize and punishments cannot motivatestudents to learn for long time. The most powerful motivation is student’s interest.Therefore, teacher should assist children with an environment which will enable themto explore freely.“Only through freedom and environmental experience is itpractically possible for human development to occur” (Maria Montessori). Teacher isa facilitator and coordinator when working with children. I believe "In early childhood you may lay the foundation of poverty or riches,industry of idleness, good or evil, by the habits to which you train your children.Teach them right habits then, and their future life is safe”(Lydia Sigourney).Teacher’sinfluence is powerful and significant. If you want to teach children manner, youshould always be polite. If you want to teach children honesty, you should never lie tothem. Children learn by imitating teachers. Therefore, "As with all great teachers, hiscurriculum was an insignificant part of what he communicated. From him you didntlearn a subject, but a life...Tolerance and justice, fearlessness and pride, reverence andpity, are learned in a course on long division if the teacher has those qualities"(William Alexander Percy). The character of person is more important the intelligence.A more knowledgeable evil will do more damage to society. Knowledge and good attribute are key factors of children’s success. I wish I cancontribute my knowledge and energy to it.-reference:http://www.dailymontessori.com/maria-montessori-quotes/http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/7847-intelligence-plus-character-that-is-the-goal-of
