3 things I learned
1. Teaching is a passion! Obviously, but it made me think. You need the passion not just to teach the lecture you need the passion to be more! There is so many hats you put yourself into as a teacher! You need the passion to advocate for more for your students and to you students a better world.
2. Teaching is hard work. This is something I have been hearing a lot of, but the opposite. “Why did you become a teacher you are way smarter” I think this is a sterotype that we are handed out as if we are just there to watch the students and not teach them too!
3 Yerks discusses discourse and how she feels like a teacher when her shoes tap. For myself I feel like a teacher any time I advocate for something and anytime I exsplain my thoughts. I like using vivid examples to promote my learnings as interesting.
2 things I connected to
1. I know I have the passion because my roommate knows as much about the classes in university at I do. When I go home I practice what I learned by sharing my knowledge.
2. I connected with Yerks program! I have been saying this to so many people that the way she went to school will benefit her! I wish we could have that program here as well.
1 question I still have
teaching identity is important when are we going to be tested on our passion and skill is it only in our last year shouldn’t we get practice first?
