From: Adrian Fernandez; Program Director
Every child in the State of Texas must have a basic understanding of the TEKS in order to be successful in the classroom. Therefore it is imperative that Texas Teachers understand the principles associated with the TEKS, as well as, have an understanding of how to implement the TEKS into their instruction.
In addition, you will learn the fundamentals of classroom management. Without a properly managed classroom your students will not be engaged in the learning process. The key to success is to insure all students are actively participating. In order to achieve success you must first understand that all students have the potential to be successful. Your job as a teacher is to find and expand that potential. This can only be done by understanding the prior knowledge of each of your students. As each child’s experiences are different, so to are their learning styles. As an educator you must facilitate your teaching style to be conducive with tactual, kinesthetic, auditory and visual learners.
I look forward to working with you during your experience with A Career in Teaching – ACP.
