I believe that a teacher should always do their best to make the classroom a place that is fun and inviting not just a place for learning.
I also believe that a teacher needs to encourage and inspire their students to take the steps they need to in order to prosper for their education.
It is the teachers job to provide the building blocks and the guidelines for their students.
However, I think it is up to the students to experiment with these blocks until they reach the goal that the studnet is expected to acheieve.
This is when i think it is up to the teacher to always try to keep their students to strive to do better than they have done before.

I intend to be a teacher that is patient and willing to adapt to the students so that way I can be approachable to my students as well as giving the students the chances they need to come out of their shells and seek help if it is required.
I beilieve that students should have some form of hands on learning along with traditional education of lecture notes or powerpoints.
I really enjoy the idea of hands on learning cause it not only gives the students a chance to use up some of that pent up energy they have from sitting in class to help them stay attentive and productive.
It also gives the students a chance to experiment themselves and see how things work thus helping spark an interest in the subject by giving the student themselves the opprotunity to take their education into their own hands.
My goal as a teacher is to not only prepare my students for their exams but to prepare and encourage my studetns for a higher education so that way when they finish high school they will have a better sense of what is to come than I had when I finished high school.
