Future Goals

Quote: “The greatest sign of a success for a teacher…is to be able to say, “The children are now working as if I did not exist.””

  • Maria Montessori

This quote is the reason I decided to become a teacher and is what helps me get through each paper, reading assignment, and final. As teachers, I believe it is our job to shape future generations and motivate our students. This quote is saying that a teacher has motivated and interested their students enough that the students want to learn.

From personal experience I have had teachers that made class so interesting that I would still go to class if I could. I have also had teachers that turned me off of a subject. The successful teacher incorporated our interests, made classes interactive, and gave us chance to voice our opinions. On the other side is the teacher that made us sit silently in rows while she talked at us. If a student had a question she would make us feel dumb for asking.

As a future teacher, it is my goal to create a fun educational environment for my students and I think this quote perfectly describes our job.

    I really enjoyed reading your blog. One of the many reasons why I want to be a teacher is so that students are still motivated about learning. Also, I believe that a teacher is successful if his/her student can apply the knowledge they gain in their everyday life. Teachers can inspire a lot of students. In elementary school I had couple teachers that were really motivational. However, in high school, it was hard. I guess as we get older we lose interest and have other priorities.
