The paper "Interviewing: Teaching Profession" is a great example of a resume/CV on education. Teachers should uphold and have a belief in the activities and processes put forward to change the behavior of students desirable. The need for facilitating and promoting behavioral changes is essential and is promoted by subject matter mastery and important teaching techniques. It is for this reason that I conducted this interview on one of the people in the profession of teaching. Mr. Wayne is a Grade 8 Secondary level teacher at Mount Lawley Senior High School.
He has a fifteen-year experience in the teaching profession teaching applied sciences and has been a class teacher for eight different classes. The school had a population of about 800 students as of the year 2016. Summary of Interview Questions and Answers Why did you decide to become a teacher? What was your motivation and what attributes do you think are important for a teacher to exhibit to be effective? I wanted to be a teacher so that I could mold young generations and make a positive change in their lives.
There is no important and better job in society that could help in creating a difference in the future of students. The education system has already helped me as a person through implanting knowledge and values and I feel that by becoming a teacher I get to pay back to the education system. Moreover, at the same time, I fulfill my wish to make a positive change in the lives of many. Interacting with the young students at both the recreational and educational levels with the aim of making positive contributions to both their educational and personal life is exciting and this was the main motivation behind my choice of profession.
For any teacher to be effective they must possess some essential attributes. One is that a teacher has to be organized and well prepared. Through having a plan and preparing well for the lessons a teacher becomes effective. Another attribute is clarity and this can help explain complex issues in a simple manner that makes it easy for students to understand. Teachers also need to be patient by providing students with enough time to understand concepts.
Fairness is also key to any good teacher. With all these attributes, the teaching profession becomes easy and the teachers become effective.
