Social : A person who likes to work with others, enlightening them in any way in which they are skilled. This is the first letter of my Holland Code which means that my personality best matches the characteristics of a social person.
Investigative : A person who is analytical and observant. The second letter of my Holland Code and still relevant to my personality.
Conventional : A person who likes to see the job gets done. Although the last letter of my Holland Code, I still find myself to be very conventional.
All of the professions I have researched in this class require me to have a very social personality. I like to interact with people face to face, having intelligent conversations and being very informative and knowledgeable.
I am the type of person who needs to look deeper into problems and find the true answer or solution. I am the type of person who will research a certain topic until I am able to prove my point and back it with personal experience and logic.
I will compromise, but when it comes down to it I like being in charge. This is not because I am power hungry and I need recognition I just don’t trust that people will perform tasks to the best of their ability, which is something I strive for.
Teachers play a big part in the lives of children and young adults. They are in charge of “fostering their intellectual and social development”. Secondary Education teachers are in charge of going more deeply into subjects in order to help students prepare for a life outside of school through guidance and introduction into the working world.
Teachers can work in a variety of settings; private schools, with smaller classes, public schools which tend to be slightly more challenging, or home tutoring
A major in education requires a 4 year Bachelors degree before being accepted into the field, and an additional 2 years to receive a Masters degree. Most educators attend a 4 year college and then attend 2 years of night school while trying to enter into the field. Public school teachers are required to be licensed within the state in which they wish to teach, while most private school teachers are not required to have a license. It is good for teachers to double major as well, as a specialized area teacher, with a minor in Special Education.
Study mental process and human behavior. They look to see how people react to one another in their environment, and the causes for their actions. They look to explain a person through emotion, feeling and behavior, by tracking and analyzing a persons action and reaction.
I shadowed my 8 th grade team teachers at Great Hollow Middle School. I have always been interested in Education and this experience has helped me to realize that I would still like to major in Education. I have had several experiences teaching, but for the first time I was opened up to an area I never believed I would be able to handle. I never thought I was patient enough to work in special ed., but spending time with the students and seeing the relationship between the teacher and students I realized that I might be interested after all.
