How do children benefit from learning process methodologies?

Gallaudet did not have a Journalism major, only minor (initially, I wanted to major in Journalism) so I decided to consider majoring in English, eventually deciding on majoring in Education (Early Childhood Education). For almost a year now I have been a bus monitor at Gallaudet University, working with children from Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (KDES).

While on duty, I have noticed that the students from KDES are not where they should be, education/academic wise. That had really disturbed me because I felt that they could be so much more than what they are today. That has influenced my decision to possibly become a teacher so I can help make a difference and hopefully help steer the students to their rightful place as scholars.

A good teacher should possess the following characteristics, to name a few, being patient, a good listener (because one does learn from the children as well), stable, open-minded, respectable (so that one can also gain respect back from the children), and empathetic.

Education should be equally accessible for everyone, but they should match one’s level so they can better learn and progress throughout their school years in order to become SOMEBODY in the future. For instance, students with learning disability would need to learn at a slower pace so that they can achieve their educational instructions. In the end, they can be what they want to be because of the learning process methodologies that were offered to them.

What should be taught is, basically, life. With that said, scholars should learn English (writing and reading), Social Studies, Math, Science, Arts, and other applicable subjects because those educational areas teach many different important elements of life that young children need to learn in order to survive in the world.

Young children can also learn from their teachers’ life experiences to be able to differ between wrong and right, education should not only be about the usual subjects, such as English, Math, and etc., but also about the “real world” so they could better prepare themselves for the future as adults. Young scholars may become future teachers, doctors, lawyers, and work in other professions, with the information offered to them at an early age. In another word, young children are our future generation and we need them to keep the ol’ good life going!

Some scholars learn best in small classroom environment where teachers give equal and personal attention as needed. In a small classroom, students could easily proceed at their own paces, rather than at the teacher’s, this way they all could be better educated, which is part of learning process methodologies because the students will not feel pressured to pace too quickly to keep up with the class.

     It is a great feeling when a teacher knows that the children have learned something. By that, I mean, it’s wonderful to see a light going off in a child’s head, so to say because that tells the teacher that the child “gets” it or finally understands her or his teaching. When a teacher tests or quizzes the children and majority of them seem to understand enough to do well on them that also lets the teacher know that she or he reached the children in a way she or he intended to do so. That, alone, is the most wonderful feeling in the world because, for me, that will allow me to realize that I might have a difference, regardless of how little may seem to others. A difference being made has to begin somewhere.
