Who Can Teach in Elementary Level?

Teacher education has always played an important role for teaching children in school. To be certified in Illinois, teachers must pass the Basic Skills Tests, which includes grammar, math, reading, and one of 53 subject tests. According to the publishing by Chicago Sun-Times in 2001, Illinois' schools have too many teachers that they have trouble teaching children since most teachers continue to teach without certification, permitted to run classrooms in the misguided notion. Teachers play an important role in the education of our society. In my experience, if the teachers don't pass certification tests, they should not to permit teach children in school because they are not a good teacher who lacked creative teaching styles; because they

The first important quality of teachers for teaching at the elementary level, teachers must be very creative with their teaching styles. Not every child learns the same way, nor are they interested in the same things. It is difficult to keep the attention of 15-20 children under the age of ten. Classroom setup and design is a good way to get and keep the attention of students. Workstations are a good way to encourage different types of learning. By allowing children a chance to choose which activities they want to participate in, children are taking control of their own education. At the elementary level, children are always learning and sometimes don't even know it. When I was in kindergarten, I can remember playing at the different stations in the classroom. One station was for gardening, we could plant seeds and check them every day to see how much they had grown. Another station was in the arts and crafts station, there was a large array of crayons, markers, scissors, construction paper, and building materials so we could use to make pretty decorations to give to our parents for our homes. By choosing which station we wanted to work at, we were becoming much more interested in what we were learning because we were doing what we wanted to do, not what we had to do. A teacher who is constantly looking for the best possible work from the child will force the child to try his or her hardest in order to please the teacher.

The second important quality of teachers for teaching at the elementary level, teachers must be open to many different types of people, ideas and cultures. They also must always try to respect the views of everyone. Children from lots of different backgrounds are going to be together in one classroom. The teacher must learn to incorporate everyone's beliefs into the daily curriculum. All students must be aware of the differences in the world around them. The time in which it is most difficult to handle the differences in cultures is the holiday season. Christian children who celebrate Christmas are always extremely excited for Santa to come to their houses and for all the presents they are going to receive. Teachers are not allowed to celebrate Christmas or any other religious holidays in the classroom without mentioning all of the traditions of the different cultures. It would take far too much time to do an activity that pertains to every religion. Looking back on my days in elementary school, I can think of all of the things I did in school around Christmas time. Almost every year, as a writing assignment, we wrote a letter to Santa Claus telling him what we were hoping to get on Christmas morning. We made Christmas trees out of egg cartons and ornaments out of construction paper. The teachers were always very sensitive to people who didn't celebrate this holiday. Jewish children made menorahs or stars of David and others made alternative projects. While trying to be sensitive to the beliefs of children and their parents, teachers also must try not to go overboard in covering the traditions of every religion. A teacher who instills a bad learning experience in a child could scar him or her for life. Teachers have a lot of responsibility and need to make sure that they make learning a positive experience for all. By being sensitive to the needs of everyone and presenting different ways of doing things, it can be possible for everyone to have an equal opportunity to do their best.



The third most important teacher's quality was having lessons well prepared, well organized, and it was chosen by 55% of students as being very important. When a teacher comes to class unprepared, they will not be able to keep the students' interest in what they are trying to say and their speech would be chaotic. The teacher's education program tests could help teachers to meet student expectations or produce good levels of achievement. There are teaching programs that could help teachers with their communication skills. Effective communication helps with developing friendship and makes students feel a connection between them and the information that a teacher wants to teach. Students feel more open to ask questions when teachers communicate and listen to students.

The last important quality of teachers for teaching at the elementary level, teachers was a thorough knowledge of subject matter. This means that teachers should simply know what they are talking about, when teaching, what are important, or what are not. For example, if you are working as a salesperson in a big corporation, the business can not sell any things and the business loses money because you have the poor selling skills. It is the same with teachers because their job is to teach, they sell their knowledge, and if student can't "buy it" understand it, then the teacher might not be good enough to teach. Teachers need to have an understanding of what they teach and, when possible, to understand it in several ways. For instance, my ninth grade science teacher Mss. Wilson was a new teacher. I was only in her class for about one month; her class was probably the most interested for me because she passed the Science Tests. Whenever, she would present ideas about prehistoric man, her eyes would light up and got so excited, and I would be forced to listen to whatever she had to say. Everyone told me that she was a hard teacher, but I didn't think so. She has done her works very well and was very knowledgeable about the subject matter. When I came time to write a paper on my particular part of the evolution of man, I found myself trying harder than I ever had. I consider her to be a good teacher because even if she did not care too much about what she was teaching, she presented it in a way that made it seem like it was her life. This helped me to want to learn because she really made me understand the subjects what she has taught. Therefore, the students would be motivated to try their hardest in order to please the teacher if the teachers know the subject they are teaching.

Teacher education has always played an important role in determining student outcomes. To be certified in Illinois, teachers must pass the Basic Skills Tests, which includes grammar, math, reading, and one of 53 subject tests. According to the publishing by Chicago Sun-Times in 2001, Illinois' schools have too many teachers and that they have trouble teaching children since most teachers continue to teach without certification, permitted to run classrooms with misguided notions. Teachers play an important role in the education of our society. In my opinion, if the teachers don't pass the certification tests, they should not be permitted teach children in school.

Very interesting, and nice ending! Good job.
