Teaching is like

  1. 1. By:Tammy Fleury
  2. 2. I believe teaching is like travelling, an everlasting passion.
  3. 3. My teaching degree, like a passport will open up a world of possibilities. With my degree I will be able to teach all grades of school. I will be able to teach all across Alberta and Canada. This very powerful piece of paper could even take me over seas to Hong Kong and enable me to teach alongside my brother.
  4. 4. My students are like the people I meet along my travels. Each student has a different background, culture and story to tell….. I believe that as a teacher I will have to work with diverse students and this will make the journey more inspiring.
  5. 5. As my travels broaden my horizons and expand my knowledge so will my students. They can teach me as much as I can teach them….. I believe teachers should never lose sight of their vision to want to help students and I always want to have a passion to go farther.
  6. 6. Travelling can haves bumps and hurdles along the way, as can teaching. In travelling the delayed planes, immunizations, and visas are classroom management issues, PAT’s and changes in curriculum in teaching…….. I believe that like all people students and teachers have all kinds of stresses in life and school may only be one of these. Despite these hurdles, the journey is all worth it when you reach your destination and,….
  7. 7. I believe all students want praise and approval of their accomplishments no matter how small.
  8. 8. Luckily with my “back up plan” my journey won’t be derailed for too long. My back up plan will be trying different teaching strategies. I will have an alternative landing like travelling. Which will consist of having meetings with mentor teachers, my teaching team and administrators…. I believe all students learn at different rates and have different ways of thinking, it is my job to find the right plan for their needs.
  9. 9. My lesson and unit plans are like my travel itinerary. It tells me what direction I am heading in and what my time line is…. I believe good teaching requires great organization, with good lesson and unit planning I will have success and my “flight” will arrive on time.
  10. 10. The souvenirs I collect on my travels will be proudly displayed on my classroom walls. These souvenirs will be of all the places I’ve visited and all the things my travel companions( my students) and I have learned about and gathered along the way.... I believe all students possess good qualities. Like in travelling you find special gems along the way or moments I will remember forever.
  11. 11. Finally, teaching I think is like travelling in that it is not about the destination…
  12. 12. …it is about the journey! Teaching is a life long journey and one never stops learning new things. Anyone that loves to travel knows that once you start you can’t stop because you instantly fall in love! You want to travel for as long as you can and absorb as many experiences, cultures and places along the way! Students are the building blocks to the future, they are what makes my journey. The students are the reason I want to be a teacher. Just like travelling you do it because you love it, I chose teaching because I love working with children and love seeing them grow along their own journey!!
