I have been in the education field for quite some time now. I have taught in a variety of settings, including public and private schools, as well as online. My philosophy of teaching is based on a few core beliefs:
- All students can learn.
- Different students learn in different ways.
- The teacher’s job is to create an environment where students can learn effectively.
- Good classroom management is essential to a productive learning environment.
In this blog post, I will share my teaching experience with you and some of the strategies I use in my classroom to create a positive learning environment.
I will also share with you a sample of my teaching philosophy so that you can refer to it and prepare one yourself.
Introduction – What is Teaching Philosophy?
A teaching philosophy statement is a narrative that includes: your conception of teaching and learning, key beliefs about knowledge and students, and your approach to teaching.
This statement provides a window into how you understand the role of education and your responsibilities as an educator. A strong philosophy will connect all three of these areas coherently.
You can use the following important areas of a teaching philosophy statement to prepare your NTC portfolio.
As an educator, your teaching philosophy should be clear, concise, and specific. My core belief as a teacher is that all students can learn and succeed if given the opportunity and support. Every student is unique and has different strengths, weaknesses, and needs.
As a teacher, I am responsible for creating a positive learning environment where all students feel safe, respected and valued. I strive to provide each student with the individualized attention and support they need to be successful.
The best way to learn is through active engagement with teaching and learning materials. I create my teaching philosophy on a learning environment that encourages students to ask questions and participate in discussions.
It is also important to provide timely feedback so that students can see the progress they are making.

It is also important to be consistent with expectations and consequences to create a fair and orderly classroom.
