I'm here to be English teacher. I think English is difficult, but interesting. I would like to tell students enjoying about English. I want students to like English.
My Development Goals(October 30 2015 → July 12, 2016)
My ultimate goal is to have a perfect commmand of English. It is difficult to be perfect. It probably needs speaking, listening or learning. They will surely help I accomplish my ultimate goal.My sub-goals should help my ultimate goal. 1. It is to be English teacher.
■ If I become an English teacher, I'll be helpful for someone to use English.
2.passing the English Proficiency Test
■ If I will pass it, it shows I'm good at English.3. It's to study abroad.
■ If I have never gone to abroad, maybe I don't know "real" English. I think it's not good. It's important to listen, look, know and feel.
4. Make a freind of international.
■ I want freind of American. That can increase to use English in conversation. I would like to knowing Foreign country's life style, culture, food, and history. They probably tell me that.These are my sub-goals. Thank you.

My Teaching Philosophy(October 30, 2015 → September21, 2016)
My Development in 2014 - 2016
Through ETM1, I learned about teaching. When I went Nakano elementary school, I teached students for the first time. It is difficult for me to teach English. But students heard teaching seriously. So I was happy. I thought even though this not good teaching, students regard me as teacher. I felt a responsibility. And I thought I'll be a good teacher.
Critical Incident 1 : My Experienced
We introduced ourselves in English. We used a word “like”. I said “Hi! I’m Yoshihiro. I like hats, Nice hat, Great hat, and Awesome hat.”
Then we read a book about hats.
Next,we played with Karuta. We made a point of communication and enjoying.
Finally, after playing, we let them introduce themselves used by “like~”. And we let some students introduce in front of them. After that, we told them our messages. We have thought that it is important to learn English enjoyably.
Critical Incident 2 (December 1 2015, Nakano ES): Our group’s goal is “Learn about subjects and the day of the week enjoyably.We made the gestures of subjects to know how to say the words of subjects enjoyably. Students can’t remember subject’s name. They can’t remember Calligraphy, Home Economics or Social Studies many times. It is a difficult word. We had to lesson many times.If we prepare a class so much, we can make a good class and students listen our class.Through this class, I can know my good point and bad point. I want to decrease my bad point and increase my good point.Critical Incident 3 (July 12, 2016, HJHS): Our critical incident is student’s answer. When students tell us their ideas, we predicted the answer. But their answers were not our prediction. We write their ideas on the black board. There are many ideas. So the black board was filled in character. Seeing at the black board was probably hard. This is Critical Incident. There is one more CI. The students could understand our instruction quickly. Our class went very smooth. So it was hard to manage schedule. CI report in Teaching Practice(August22-September21, 2016, KJHS): There were many students to understand my teaching but there were many students couldn’t understand it. It’s big difference of ability in the classes. I felt it’s difficult for me that all students are understood. Sometimes, they didn’t listen to my instruction. Some students talked in whisper. Some students finished tasks quickly but some students were slowly. They were so friendly. Sometimes they had bad attitude for me. They slept when they felt my teaching was boring. When they felt my teaching was enjoyable, they focused on class lesson.
