Question 4 of 12
What is most rewarding for you, as a teacher?
User-Submitted Answers
Watching a student really get a concept and use it.
When students are able to reflect and identify the areas in which they need support/additional instruction and to receive the remediation/support and successfully master a concept.
That's tough to choose one, but I would have to finally decide on the thrill and happiness that comes from seeing a student make a connection, or have an "ah-ha" moment, which, in tern, makes them feel good about themselves.
When students understand the material and grasp the new knowledge.
Knowing that I affected a student in a positive way. Knowing that I helped a student become more confident in their learning and the future that comes ahead.
Small successes. Lighbulbs.
Establishing a report with students and helping my students reach their potential.
My students grasping and understanding everything I have taught them to help them be successful.
Question 5 of 12
What did you dislike about your current or old teaching position?
User-Submitted Answers
They did not offer professional development.
I never think of disliking my job because feelings are subjective. I will say that knowing what I wanted and needed in a working environemnt caused me to make choices in changing jobs.
The pressure from standardized testing. Although I believe tests are an important tool for teachers to assess students learning, it isn't the only tool. The pressure of standardized testing in public schools, in my experience, took the emphasis of teaching away from the relationships built in the classroom, deteriorated the quality of instruction and drove teachers to simply teach the test, and that's problematic.
Nothing. Its a new experience teaching adults.
The system words doesn't always match it's action. For example, we must differentiate education but tests are standardized. And not everyone test the same.
My ability to teach in a way that my students would fully understand and not have to move on when the students are not ready because of the districts mandated pace.
