Answer: Every teacher is unique in their own ways of dealing their
pupils and co-teachers.
Use the information from your personal results and those of the ten
teachers in making your reflections that follow.

My Reflections
After studying the results of your teacher survey, write down your
reflections on the following situations reported to have happened in the school
1. Why are some teachers reported to have bumped a learners head on the
wall or made a child swallow scratch paper or pencil filings? What attribute
do you think is low for this teacher?
Some teachers who are like that are doing it for punishing the pupils.
Teachers who are not emotionally stable tend to harm and be violent to
pupils instead of understanding them and be calm. As educators, teachers
should be calm and good in handling pupils misbehavior.
2. Why do you think some teachers are better loved by students than others?
Some teachers are better loved by students is because of their happy
disposition. Teachers who are friendly and compassionate tend to attract
pupils because teachers are considered as the second parents of the
pupils. Marcellin Champagnat said that, in order to teach children, you
must love them.
3. If you were to choose, which personal attributes should all teachers
possess? Why?
For me, the attributes that all teachers should possess are emotional
stability, compassion, intelligence and cooperativeness because in
teaching you are not only dealing with your pupils everyday but also with
your colleagues. In order to have a conducive environment, one must be
sensitive with people. People by your side are the hardest to earn.

My Affirmed Concepts
After reflecting on this episode and recalling my previous subjects, I have
realized that there are several concepts in the teaching profession about
personal attributes I learned that has been affirmed and confirmed, examples of
which are given below:


My Future Application
When I became a teacher, I should love and accept my pupils whoever they are
for them to belong in the class and actively participate in my discussions. When a
pupil feels that he/she belongs to a group, the pupil will love it and do everything
to satisfy and have fun with everyone. I should listen to them and understand
them, to put myself in their shoes. In addition, I should also be resourceful in
making my lessons interesting and I should possess good listening skills, I
should also be flexible and be professional with my co-teachers. Importantly, I
should love my profession.

My Observations

Visit a teacher in a school and observe what school/classroom activities

reflect his/her philosophy of education while she is teaching. Identify and
describe teachers action or behavior and match each with the identified
educational philosophy.
1. Observed actions of a teacher who is progressivist:
Teacher Shiela Mediavilla is a progressivist teacher. She is a multigrade
teacher. During the class, she serves as the guide of the students in their
learning. The lessons are not solely from her but from her pupils. She is
competent in every lessons and is using technology appropriately for the
2. Observed actions of a teacher who is a behaviourist:
Teacher Girlie Utrera is a behaviourist teacher. She gives rewards and
praises the students for their correct answers. Teacher Utrera has a more
compassionate heart when it comes to the pupils. She appreciates and
gives feedback to the pupils for them to participate in class.

My Reflections
Based on your concrete experience and the actions of the teacher you
have observed, how important is your philosophy of education to your future
career as a teacher? How would your experiences and observations contribute to
your becoming a teacher?

My philosophy of education is very important in my career as a teacher for it

serves as guide in providing a quality teaching and learning process with my pupils.
Teachers need to consider their pupils individual differences and intelligences and
instill that there is no best method in teaching them. Moreover, my philosophy,
experiences and observations will help me carry out my mission to teach the pupils
to be helpful to the society.

My Affirmed Concepts

Identify at least three concepts learned in your previous subject like The
Teaching Profession which are related to the Experiential Learning Episode 3
(Teaching Belief/Philosophy) that are confirmed or affirmed in this activity?

1. Affirmed Concept 1

Teachers have different teaching philosophies. Every one of us

unique. Having their own philosophies determine the kind of
teaching they act in the classroom that the student learn best.

2. Affirmed Concept 2

Teachers have different teaching strategies depending on their

philosophies and subjects they teach. Teachers use the reward
system, gives feedback and makes the class discussions more fun
and engaging by the use of technology.

3. Affirmed Concept 3

Every teacher has their own opinion and views on the subject
matter. Each of us have different styles in teaching and these styles
came from our own views in life that makes us unique and whole.
Teachers should teach learning to live together in spite these

My Future Application
Using the first hand experiences in this activity, how will I use when I
become a teacher in the future?

a. Teachers should consider the needs of the learners depending on the

subject matter. The way of teaching pupils can affect their understanding
in life and can cause disarray in their lives. It is important to know your
pupils to know what the best strategy to apply in teaching them.

b. Teachers should accept the learners wholeheartedly. Learners are

diverse, the teacher needs to adapt and choose the appropriate
philosophy and strategy in teaching them. Since pupils are diverse, their
intelligences are also different, it will be best if applying what are the
suitable activities in teaching and learning process.

c. Teachers should be the agents of making the environment conducive. If

the environment is conducive for learning, the pupils will learn best inside
or outside of the classroom. Teachers should be creative and resourceful
in making the lessons fun.

On Becoming A


A teacher as a professional will always be found in a school setting. There
will be no school without the teacher because a teachers official working place is
a school. A school is an institution where learning occurs under the guidance of a
professional called the teacher.
You will also find yourself in one of these schools when you become a full-
fledged teacher.
How does a teacher operate or function in a school setting? How will a
teacher manage the physical as well as the psychological environment in the

My Observation

At the time you are in school, what significant observation have you made?
Areas of Focus for Observation My Observations
in the School Setting
Physical Setting
1. Classroom Arrangement The chairs are arranged well according in
the pupils they cater. The cabinets are
also arranged well, even the teachers
tables, television, learning centers. The
room is also clean. The room is pleasing
to the eyes. The classroom is conducive
for learning, it can cater enough learners.
2. Bulletin Board Display The displays on the bulletin board are
arranged well depending on its kinds. The
displays are noticeable. It is also updated.
The bulletin board is also place in the right
3. School Playground The school does not have a school
playground. Children are opted to stay
inside the classroom until their sundo will
fetch them. They can only play inside the
classroom to avoid disturbances on the
other classes.
4. Learning Resource Center They have a computer room. They use it if
they have computer classes. Reading
corners and learning centers are also
present in every classroom.
Socio-Psychological Setting
1. Class routines Their class routines are based on their
class program. Children are usually told to
do the cleaning to practice themselves in
their lives.
2. Teacher Activities They give activities that the pupils need.
The activities are fun and engaging. Some
of the activities are based on a self-help
3. Learners Activities The activities are different depending on
the pupils moods and needs. The class
have diverse learners that needs special
care and attention.
4. Co-curricular Activities They do not have co-curricular activities.
5. Extra-curricular Activities They do not have extra-curricular

My Reflections

Based on the teachers program, your observations and your interviews,

would you now see teaching to be full time job? Why? Why not?

I can see myself working as a teacher. It needs to have passion,

compassion and enthusiasm in teaching the learners especially those who have

special needs. The teacher needs to be flexible in their learners to teach them

well. The learners should not be the one adjusting on the activities given by the

teacher but the teacher herself should be the one to adjust because their

learners are unique and have different kinds of intelligences.

How do you feel about the teachers workplace? Are the conditions,

healthy for the welfare of both the learners and teachers?

The teachers workplace is conducive for learning, the classroom are well

ventilated and lighted. They also have facilities that can help the learners and the

teachers like the school canteen that sells healthy foods for everyone. However,

the school should be big enough for the children to play outside. Learning does

not only surround in the corners of the classroom.

Do you find the relationships of the teachers and the learners pleasant? Explain

your answer.

I find the teachers and the learners pleasant. During the class, it is visible

that the teachers love their learners. The learners casually hug their teachers,

when they arrive, the learners are well mannered. The teachers understand the

conditions of the learners and are very calm every time. There is a warm aura

surrounding the classroom.

On Becoming A


In the Philippines, the government has built schools in almost all strategic
barangays, town or city. This is done to provide access and equal opportunity for
every school child to achieve quality education. At present, there are more than
half a million public school teachers deployed in all these schools throughout the
country. The school and the teacher in every school have very crucial
responsibilities in contributing to the change and development in every

qualities and competencies of the Effective Teacher. These competencies are

Activity 2 Global Teachers the World Over

Activity 1 describes the competencies that a global Filipino Teacher should
possess. Now, we need to also know the competencies required of other
teachers from other countries of the world.
Since we cannot travel physically to other countries, we can reach these
places through the use of modern technology like surfing the World Wide Web,
interviews and use of other sources of information.
Choose two countries other than the Philippines. Search for the personal
and professional competencies required of the teachers in that particular country.
You may also interview a Filipino teacher who has taught in these countries.

Be guided by the Matrix given below:

My Observations
1. Based on your personal interview of the Filipino Teacher on the
competencies of the national standards for teachers, has the teacher met
the requirements? Explain.

interviewed meet the challenges of global education? Why? Why not?
