Becoming A Teacher
In our society teachers are always a boon. Teachers attempt to
create a well-rounded personality through their intelligence, patience and
wisdom. Through their intelligence, patience and wisdom. Students make a
difference in their lives through teachers. The biggest reward of teaching
was inspiring students from their apathy and watching their curiosity grow.
In my personal philosophy of teaching, I believe that it is important to be
consciously aware of the theory behind what I’m going teach as well as the
way that how I teach. It is very empowering for me to understand the
theories associated with my field and to be able to reflect those theories in
my teaching approach someday. I begin with the belief that all of my
students come into the classroom with pre-existing knowledge that
contributes to the learning process. I will make an attempt to discover and
exploit this knowledge from the outset by surveying my students’ scientific
knowledge. Then I will encourage my students to capitalize on their
strengths and experiences in order to develop their scientific abilities.
Understand the social functions of language Not only is it important for me to
teach my students the concepts of biology, it is also very important for me to
instruct my students in the proper use of the scientific language. Therefore, I
will devote time in discussing the answers to different types of questions
based on the past papers. Regularly I will have my students engage in peer
feedback, with slight variation of the activity each time. In pairs or in groups,
students read peer answers, provide either written or verbal feedback, and
discuss the answers for that particular concept. Students seem to enjoy and
benefit tremendously from this activity. Rapport is an important aspect of
classroom pedagogy that I believe has more to do with people-management
skills than to teaching.
To identify and describe the teachers’ activity that
enrich the learners multiple intelligence.
Be able to identify the lesson objectives, teaching
activities, instructional materials, and assessment tools
used by the teacher in such activities.
Be able to identify the principles in teaching learning
activities and the instructional materials used by the
teacher in selected subjects.
A. My Cooperating School
Saint Vincent de Paul was my cooperating school. This is the most
cooperative school when we used to ask for approval. The school was
located in Bgry. Maligaya Park, Quezon City. The school have a good
location because the place was peaceful where the student can concentrate
B. My Group
This is my group mates when we conducted the field study in Saint
Vincent Academy de Paul.
C. My Cooperating Teachers
Ms. Shayne Amador. She is teaching Filipino subject.
She is Mrs. Teresa Casas. She is a teacher in Social Studies.
D. The learners
The students answering their activity/assessment
Asking question to the students as part of the learning activity.
Mrs. Teresa Casas is discussing the lesson for the day. The lesson was
about the President of the Philippines. As I observed the class she using
pictures as her visual aids and I really feel that she is kind of tense maybe
because of our presence. From time to time she also asking questions to
the student but most of the time she is the one who feed more information
about the lesson. I found her class more teacher-centered approach. The
students are behave and also attentive during the discussion and they are
all participating in class. For me, even though she is using teacher-centered
approach the learning process of the class of Ma’am Casas is also effective
as I saw how the students response during that time.
Learning they say is hard so as to teaching. To learn, one must get to
know the different things, from simple ideas to more complex. Also, in
teaching, many things are to be learned not only by the students but also to
the part of the teacher. In order a teacher to learn, he/she must be effective
and well versed to the different methods or strategies he/she will use to
make his teaching more innovative. Effective teaching is said to be achieved
if a student has learned something from what the teacher taught.
In these field studies, I have found out that real teaching can be
seen when you are in the location where the teaching and learning takes
place. I believe that a teacher can be developed if he sees the reality of
teaching. And that's what I've experienced during my Field Study journey.

To enhance and improve the pupils progress schools
developing their assessment of pupils. By investing in assessment, schools
can ensure that learning is meaningful for all pupils, teaching is effective
and attainment outcomes are improved.
Assessment is an integral part of instruction, as it determines whether
or not the goals of education are being met. Assessment affects decisions
about grades, placement, advancement, instructional needs, curriculum,
and, in some cases, funding. Assessment inspire us to ask these hard
questions: "Are we teaching what we think we are teaching?" "Are students
learning what they are supposed to be learning?" "Is there a way to teach
the subject better, thereby promoting better learning?" Today's students
need to know not only the basic reading and arithmetic skills, but also skills
that will allow them to face a world that is continually changing. They must
be able to think critically, to analyze, and to make inferences. Changes in
the skills base and knowledge our students need require new learning goals;
these new learning goals change the relationship between assessment and
instruction. Teachers need to take an active role in making decisions about
the purpose of assessment and the content that is being assessed.
Be able to competent in identifying and naming different
assessment and methods use in the classroom.
Be able to be adept in designing, using and interpreting results
and objective tests.
Be able to be informed on the principles of authentic
assessment and its usefulness in the classroom.
Be able to be skillful in designing process-oriented

Maranatha Christian Academy was located in Brgy. Sta. Monica, Novaliches
B. ) My Group
My Cooperating Teacher
Mrs.Nieves R. Cabagbag was our cooperating teacher and
she was also the principal of Maranatha Christian Academy. She is very
nice and cooperating when we conducted our field study. She believed that
being a global teacher you must be spiritual, morally and physically matured.
At the same time teacher should well equipped with the knowledge and
skills to be efficient and effective.
D.) The Mission and Vision
This is the mission and vision of Maranatha Christian School. It present the
overall purpose of the school, statement comprises a central part message
that the school original purpose, the values that the school stands for and
the reason for the school continued existence. It summarized general
principles and aspiration to the school for continuing their goals for the
education of the new generation.
"To Teach is to love the children" This is actually true in the teaching
field. It is a fact that when a teacher firsts understands his learners, the
learning is achieved with harmony. The teaching and learning process
should always be based on the learners' interest. Teachers must give
appropriate lessons that fit to the capabilities and likes of his learners. If in
some instances where students have difficulties in learning for they have
learning disabilities like dyslexia, the role of the teacher is to first change his
strategies in teaching and make sure that he will give the special attention
The world of teaching doesn't only end at school. It doesn't only end
when the school year ends or when the teacher finishers the chapters he
taught from the book to his students. It also doesn't end when your pen's ink
becomes empty. To learn is to learn around. therefore, learning is
everywhere and everywhere we learn different things from the simplest to
more complex of learning.
Simultaneously, as the learning takes place, of course we also have to
remember that everything that we learn from the past to the present, these
things are such valuable for these teach us how to become new and
productive individuals. We are inspired of the lessons we took and definitely,
these will last forever in n our memory.
And for us we should always remember that we must be able to influence
the minds of many to become good and that we should be careful in
touching the lives of people we once be part with.

In Becoming a teachers, teachers hold the highest regard for
students after their parents. All cultures and religions preach that students
are supposed to respect their teachers and should try to learn from them not
only what's there in the academic curriculum but also the values of life.
Teachers have an important role in building the personality of students and
the relationship they develop with them determines the student's academic
and personal growth.
Teachers bear the heavy responsibility of molding the minds of our
nation's most precious resource, its children. The road to becoming a
teacher is a long one, involving post-high school education, people skills,
and a desire to change lives. These traits, when accompanied by
experience and good techniques, form the foundation for an effective, life-
Before anything else, teachers must have a desire to impact the lives of their
students. Some teachers teach because they want to help children learn
and grow and would like to make a contribution to society. Others have an
intellectual fascination with a certain subject (such as math or history), have
been inspired by one of their own teachers, or feel they have a sense of
commitment to their country. One thing is certain, teachers that go into the
profession for selfish reasons will find it hard to commit to their career. The
salary for a teacher is not likely to make a person rich, so their motives must
be based on helping improve the minds of future generation.
Everyone has progressed to where they are in life because they had
a teacher. A teacher is defined as someone who gives instruction and
communicates skills. Our children are our future, and they need to be
prepared for the future or they will not be successful in the working world.
Teaching makes a difference in them, because it gives them tools to help
them be successful in the future.
The job of a teacher means different things to different people. For
some, a teacher is simply a person who informs students about "necessary
information" like math formulas, historical facts, or literary works. Yet for
others, and for me, teachers are much more. They give their students not
only their knowledge, but also their passion. They get involved in the lives of
their students. They make their students feel good about themselves and
they help the youth realize and fulfill their dreams.
Be able to competent in establishing routines and procedures
to make the physical environment conducive learning.
Be able to competent in identifying possible linkages between
the school and the community particularly those that will help
attain curricular goals.

Be able to manifest a better understanding of the right, duties,
and responsibilities of a professional teachers and how to

Mrs. Nieves was very open when we
interviewed her. She answered all our

Academy. Since this is a
Christian schools, they’re are
more focus with the Christian
values, discipline, God fearing student, a responsible and enlightened future
leaders of our society.
Through out my experience in my field study I learned so much that I
really treasured because it is indeed important to a future teacher like me. I
know this experience will really help me to become effective to the
profession that I’ve chosen. Upon observing in the class where my group
gathered our field study I learned that a teacher student relationship could
be developed by encouraging a learning environment where the student
feels free to ask whatever he wants to and the teacher responds in a
manner which is understandable by the student. Therefore it would not be
wrong to say that the building block of a strong teacher student relationship
is effective communication. The level of respect that exists between the two
also has a vital role to play in developing a positive teacher student
relationship. A major hindrance to the strengthening of their relationship is
the different categories of students in a class. Some of the students are hard
working and come to the class to learn but there are others who are
aggressive in nature and find it difficult to concentrate on what is going on in
They continuously distract others and also spoil the learning
environment of the class. In order to overcome this hindrance the teachers
need to be extremely patient. They should maintain a balance between
leniency and strictness as excess of any of the two could cause a total
chaos. It is the teacher's responsibility to monitor every student individually
so that their progress could be monitored and attention can be divided
between students accordingly.
A teacher-student relationship evolves with time. When in primary
school the teacher usually acts as a mother for students and guides them
about every little thing. In secondary and post secondary school the
approach of teachers becomes more professional. They are more
concerned about completing the course rather than teaching students the
true value of life. This is where most teacher student relationships suffer. A
teacher transforms from being a teacher to an instructor who has the sole
responsibility of teaching students what's there in the course books and
nothing beyond that. For strong student teacher relationships it is essential
that teachers understand that students in a class come from different
cultural and social backgrounds.
This increases the need for teachers to modify their behavior
according to each students needs. In this way the teacher would be able to
develop a level of understanding with every student and the students would
feel they are important which would boost their self esteem. This would also
reflect in their grades and overall behavior. The overall size of the class is
also vital in determining how effective a student teacher relationship could
be. The larger the class size the more difficult it would be for teachers to
provide individual attention to students so school administrations should
make sure that the class size is kept small which would allow a much better
learning environment for teacher student relationship to flourish.
With the growing competition in society it is essential that people
improve their relationships with each other. Amongst these relationships, a
student teacher relationship is of utmost importance which needs to be
looked after properly so that young children could grow up to become
educated and responsible citizens of the society.
Dear Lord, bless these teachers mightily
as they seek to teach, enrich and guide
Your precious children.
Grant them abundant resources to do their job,
intelligence, wisdom, sensitivity, kindness,
and the material things that make it possible
to turn some of these tender green plants
into the strong, stable trees that will lead our nation,
to transform some of these buds into brilliant flowers
that will bring light, color and happiness
to all who encounter them,
and to give every one of them the tools
to be creative, and productive and to develop
their own kind of success in the world.
Lord, wrap Your loving arms around these teachers
who give so much of themselves to grow our youth
We into creative, responsible adults.
pray that You will immerse them
in your boundless, transcendent love.
We pray that You will strengthen and soothe them
when they have given so much of themselves
that they need Your extra attention, Your extra care.
We love, respect and admire these teachers, Lord
and we pray that you will watch over them always--
these special people who hold our children
and our future in their hands.
By Joanna Fuchs
Maranatha School Academy principals’ said that teacher in learning
need to seek the understanding of teacher. She said that most of the times
their teachers always used student-centered approach. They must assure
that their school is conducive in learning. They always set a humane
discipline to all students as well as to the faculty. They also have a
community service such as cleaning the surroundings outside of the school
since the school is located in the urban area of Novaliches.
They also used deferent assessment tools in assessing the progress
of every student they have such as oral and written examination, group
activities, thesis defense, observation and reporting. She always
encourages their teachers to use visual aids during class discussion. As
much as possible they integrate the use of technology in their classes. Mrs.
Nieves said that in imparting knowledge to their students they believe the
principle of learning by doing of John Dewy. Because she believed that
each child was active, inquisitive and wanted to explore and education
should also equip students to take a full and active part in shaping their
