I believe that no matter how many hours I spend in the classroom learning about this stuff, I will never be ready or prepared. I have accepted the fact and I will move on from it. I believe that reading is the sole most important thing that teachers can actually teach and we need reading to thrive. It should be done on a regular basis and that’s how I want my classroom to go. I want my students and myself to read a little each day for the entire school year. That’s what I believe for reading.
I believe that writing is the core of who we are as humans. We write everyday for things like grocery lists, love letters and even resumes. I believe writing, just like reading, is something we need to survive. And to teach it is something that I will always cherish. I loved learning to write in grade school and then a little more in depth in high school. Now in college, I’m learning everything there is to know about it and I want to pass that on to my students. I believe people need to know how to write and to pass it on from generation to generation. Writing will keep cities alive!
I believe that as a reader myself, I am lacking. No I do not read as much as I should or I want and I really want to change that. And I think going into a career like teaching all of this stuff will help me get to what I want. And writing is in that same category. But the classes I’m taking in college are really opening my eyes to how important it is.
