I Choose teaching because i generally have a passion to help kids be the best they can be. It was a way to make a difference and enhance the minds of the upcoming generations. I want the children to learn that History can be a great subject and to know how it affects their everyday lives. How things in the past take affect as what we are now in the future. I hope that every student that walks in my classroom can walk out with a new perspective in what history and education as a whole is all about.
In my classroom i will try to push the students to be the best they can be, not only in my subject but in all others as well. I want to make history fun to learn and teach it in away they can comprehend and also analyze it. I want my students to enjoy what i'm teaching but i also what them to strive to learn more than what they already know. I will try to teach to the best of my ability to know the ins and outs of history, how something that happen 100's of years ago still affects today and who was significant enough to be remembered.
The first thing my students will learn in class will be when, who and what took place in the designated time was so important. I will teach them what were the key parts in history and what made one historical time period different from another.
