Educational Philosophy

The modern education has to provide the environment that allows the exchange of ideas, creative approach to tasks, projects, and the support of the natural desire of a learner to acquire new knowledge and skills. A child needs an atmosphere that encourages progress. My training philosophy is based on the belief that creating the positive motivational and emotional background is vital as it inspires students to life-long learning.
I believe that it is important to ensure an individual approach to learning towards each student. Teachers should help students develop a versatile mimd; moreover, the study should provide not only intellectual, but also physical and social skills enhancement. Furthermore, one of the main points is to teach a student to search for information and pursue life-long learning. The teacher should explain how to find and use scientific information databases and clarify simple ways of deepening the knowledge. In my opinion, it is important to provide educational material that is practically oriented, leads to higher competence, and ensures the successful student's employment in the future.
At the present stage, the effective teacher's performance predominantly requires the knowledge of a proper leadership strategy and emotional attitude to people when working in a group or with an individual student. One of the main points of my educational philosophy is that the educator's ability to identify what kind of approach to choose to each student makes it possible to use the learner's existing and genetically inherent human abilities to achieve positive educational results. The use of Daniel Goleman's model is essential in successful teaching and learning as it encompasses five important areas of teacher and learner's performance such as self-awareness, self-regulation, social skills, empathy, and motivation and thus helps to achieve long-lasting and positive results. To reach the goal, a teacher should understand strengths and weaknesses of an individual such as the possession of knowledge of the subject, types of memory, and comprehension abilities. It becomes possible through surveys, interviews, or tests which, I think, have to be held at the beginning of the cooperation between a teacher and a learner.
It helps the teacher understand the values that are incentives to study the subject. The properly selected methods of motivation have to be personally oriented, and the assistance in the event of negative emotions, impulses, or situations that distract students from achieving educational goals is obligatory. A teacher has to teach tolerance, patience, tactics to reduce negative emotions as well as enhance constructive thinking and ability to set tasks and act upon objectives. On the other hand, the team spirit in achieving objectives is an important point as each student being the member of the society has to learn to cooperate effectively to improve personal competencies.
An educator should help students develop empathy so that they can understand and take into the account feelings of others in decision-making process and the execution of tasks assigned by a teacher. My philosophy was also influenced by other scientists like Maslow (the emotional state depends on the satisfaction of needs, Piaget (the age and level of personal development of the student should be considered) Freud.
In conclusion, the teacher has to ensure positive atmosphere, support the student's desire to develop as a versitale person, explain how to find information and deepen knowledge. My philosophy implies that the adequate use of all five approaches of the EI theory creates a coherent system of training. Students can adjust it to achieve comprehensive goals not only in education but in their career. I will use in my work various scientists studies to reach my educational goals.
