My Teaching Philosophy
My Development Goals (October 29, 2015→Febrary 12, 2016→October 18, 2016)
My ultimate goal is to make many able person rather than me through teaching to students ,and I want to contribute to Japan, and the world.
- To make interesting English class
I'd like to make simple and clear class. It doesn't mean easy class. I think it is similer to computer programming. Students can understand what I should do anytime. If I can make this class, Students can learn English by themselves.
2. To continue to teach as long as possible
The more I work, the more I can make a difference. That's why, I should be healthy and be with students anytime.
3. To be a top English teacher in Iwate
Finally, I want to be a top of the world ,but I start at Iwate. I'd like to keep studying until I reach the point. (Oct. 29, 2015)
My goal has changed through ETM3 and ETM Plus. One goal is that to be a tacher who let students do activities. It does not mean to compel students to study. I hope they try to study or join English activities spontaneously.(Feb. 12 2016)
I would like to add other goals because by experience of taching practice, my idea has changed. My new development goal is that to make classes which students have much time to use English.
My Development in 2014 - 2016
My critical incidents were so good things. I thought that they don't like English and our plan for class was too dificult for them. However, they tried to listen to our English and they understood contents of a picture book. Then, I noticed they don't like English so much and they have interest for English. That's why, I think we should try not to lose their interest to English.

My critical incident were two. One was that they coud not understand our instruction. The other was that I could not use or choose classroom English clearly. Solutions I thought were three, to know students level, to use simple and same expressions to an action, to add gestures.

I was surprised big difference of level of each students. We should have prepared advices for any students. I understood that we have to consider their parsonnal situations. I think our this class was too systematic and boring. Especially, the way to make pairs, it was only pairwork. That's why, We have to think about groupwork. Furthermore, we could not concider about situations in this class. Of course, We gave a situation, but it lacks inevitability. This is a task for me.

When we did shopping game, I had not explained how to sar reaction words because I thought it was difficult. However, a student said "Nice T-shirt!" . From this, I noticed two things. One was that students can learn English from only teacher's English. It proves using English in clasroom is effective. The other was I should have explained about reaction more clearly. If I did so, more students can say that. I could not have enough time to practice expressions. In addition to, that was only pair, so I have to think efficient and effective group lesson.
