Want to Become a Teacher?
First of all why or what gives you the desire to become a teacher? Is it the love to teach or the love for kids? The love for kids and the love for teaching are two different things.
All teachers have different reasons why they wanted or want to teach! It's the reason for the uniqueness of each teacher.
Why do you want to teach? Why I Teach
The Change of Teaching
Throughout the years teaching has changed, as we are now in the 21st century where teaching has become more
intense *gasp* not only for the teachers but also for the students!
21st Century Life Throughout the years to come, teaching will continue to change. Now and Then
Teachers Make Mistakes
All teachers make mistakes! It's nothing to worry about ^_^. Teachers are only human and learn from their mistakes which makes them a great teacher. What Makes us Human What would make you a bad a teacher, is if you never learned from your mistakes.
Both teachers and students want success in this. What makes a teacher successful? What makes a student successful?
Everyone wants success, it's the way you achieve it that gives you that great feeling.
Grade Level Teaching
Before you start to teach, of course you know what grade level or levels you want to teach. What grade do you want to teach? Each grade level has different methods for teaching because each grade has a different brain capacity, and can learn only certain things. Students need to start from the bottom of Bloom's Taxonomy which is Knowledge and end with Evaluation! Tools for the K-6 Classroom
Another way of teaching is called Elements of Effective Instruction
It is a guideway for a teacher; it helps and guides the teacher to teach properly and giudes them through the process of teaching their students.
These are students from Independence FEA chapter at the 10/19/2009 conference!
Fun Activities for Students
For the classroom you need activities that will always keep the students set for learning and will keep the mind flowing. Did you Know...? That you will lose the students attention if they just sit there for the whole class time? They need to get up and walk around! Activities are a good way to keep them active and paying attention.

State CTE Testing
Okay... All I have to say is REALLY!?!?!? Why do we have to take a state mandated test just to see if we know the information (from a YEAR ago)or not? Has anyone ever thought that some people just don't test well; hence, the lower grades for those individuals? I'm curious about what the Education Professions students have to say about this; don't forget if you're planning on taking Advanced Education Professions next year, you'll have to take this test too. Why do you think this test could be a good thing or why do you think it's a bad thing and what would you do to fix it? --JazzK 15:30, March 11, 2010 (UTC)JazzK
