Abstract

As a teacher, I am aware of my responsibilities towards the cognitive and socio-emotional development of my students. By carefully building meaningful relationships with my students, I have been able to understand their strengths and challenges. I have learned that students demand high expectations for engaging instruction. The following is an ethnography about my experience as a first year teacher. I will be explaining my perspective on how I interpret the observations I took of my students and the community I serve. Throughout my first year teaching, I have tried and implemented various teaching strategies to suit the wide array of learning needs that my students require. As I develop into a professional educator, my reflection leads me to believe that evolution of my teaching philosophy is centered upon building instruction that is relevant and rigorous for all types of learners.
