  Progressivism Education serves many purposes in the world. My philosophy in education is  progressivism, which is guided by what I value to be important, how I make critical decisions, and how I use knowledge to respond to new ideas and perspectives. As a teacher, there are many things that I consider to be important. The purpose of education is to enhance a students mind full of new information, in which will help develop them in their lives. My beliefs about teaching and learning are that the teacher is there to help the student find out new information, and an understanding of what that newinformation means. A student must be eager and willing to learn this information for the teacher to be able to fully elaborate and have everyone gaining new knowledge. !tudent centered and teacher centered philosophies vary in that child centered is mainly focused on how that child will be grown up in society. This meaning focused mainly on what the student will need in order to function in the society they will be brought into, based on the needs of each child. !tudent centered also encourages cooperation with others, and student learning information on their own. #hile, Teacher centered is mainly when the teacher repeatedly talks to the students, students listen and try to gain all of the information spoken. $ooperation is less encouraged during this type of teaching. A teachers self philosophy influences and reflects in how they teach. A philosophy, in which gives them specific morals and ethics in the way they make all of their important decisions. Morals are very important in making critical decisions. Teachers need to give students different knowledge and skills including% responsibility, gratitude, correct  information, dependability, and to show them what a privilege it is to be able to learn. All of these &ualities that I believe should be taught will effect the way I teach. These will also determine how I make difficult decisions in the classroom. #hether it be a childs discipline or if I would turn in one of my colleagues if I thought they were not doing their  'ob correctly. My self morals will also help me decide what kind of teacher I want to  become, the big picture. I see myself as being a kind, fun, lively, and caring teacher, but also stern enough for them to respect me. !ome teachers believe that they should be hardon students and very strict because it will make them learn more. I think this idea would not work for me, I believe education should be interesting, ever changing, and engaging( )A sense of curiosity is natures srcinal school of education.*  +ew ideas are constantly generated in school. Therefore, teachers need to know how to respond to them, creating changes in their philosophies on education. My belief about classroom and behavior management is that I need to make a good first impression,to be respected. I also believe students are natural testers, so trust will not 'ust come easy for them. Management will improve with time education is always changing, as well as students. There will always be those difficult students who do not want to participate at all. It is because of this that students and teachers both have roles in education. A students role is to try to participate and always eager to learn, where a teachers role is toteach information, enough for students to take the lead on their own, not a lecture, 'ust an eplanation. A teacher is also there for etra guidance and a support system, if needed.#hile educational philosophies may vary from teacher to teacher, the underlying  purpose of education remains the same. Teachers are there to pass on information to the new coming generations, or to improve the old ones. I believe teachers should only give  students enough information to figure everything out themselves, this will create a rewarding and a great learning environment. Ryan, K., & Cooper, J. (1972).
