My vision is that students will obtain the necessary skills to be successful in the technical, profesdional and technical and social aspects of their lives. Students will be able to effectively use the skills acquired to help identify and vehemently pursue any objectives in a practical manner in their professional life. Not only will students succeed in learning how to plan for and balance the interesting opportunities that life will present for them, but they will also inspire others, by their example, to want to learn how to do the same.
My mission is to prepare students to succeed in the world, in a manner that takes into account the importance of the technical, professional and social aspects that contribute greatly to the human experience. Rather than being intimidated by the status quo, which would most likely suggest that I just try to get through the suggested standards the best way I can, I refuse to be mediocre. Instead, I will go out of my way, to prepare as a teacher, by keeping in mind that I could only expect students to work hard if I do the same. Therefore, if I am to expect students to develop the skills necessary to thrive in their lives, I must set the example. I pledge to be the best role model that I could be for the benefit of the lives of my students.
Establishing an appropriate learning environment for students is essential for both students’ and the teacher’s success in and out of the classroom. Students will have a clear understanding as to what is expected of them, regarding behavior in the classroom and even out of the institution environment. Also, students will see that their teacher’s role is to guide them as THEY help to create an engaging learning environment through their own efforts and class participation. Students will know that they are free to explore and discuss whatever areas or topics that they are interested in, as long as they respect each other and conduct themselves in a professional manner. The goal is for students to feel safe to share their own intellectual discoveries so that everyone, including the teacher, will learn from each other. Not only should a teacher talk about and actively promote thought-provoking educational and engaging learning opportunities, but he should be sensitive and open to the potential innovative ideas that his students will have to offer as well. In that manner, students will look forward to a class that offers them opportunities to share their value. In such a positive environment, getting students to follow the rules and procedures will be less challenging.
