Teacher's professonal development
Nowadays,with the increasing requirements for the development of education,it is highlighted that teacher's professional competence should be a moving target for the teachers to pursue all their professional life.
Some people with a sound command of a foreign language may not be able to teach it very well while others with a general command of English can teach it effectively. Therefore,it is believed that learning English well does not necessarily mean that they can teach English well.So what are critical elements for the growth of an English teacher?To my part,there are three aspects: ethic devotion,desired personal styles and most importantly ,professional competence.
Among the qualities contributing to the making of an excellent English teacher,the most significant and difficult part is the development of professional ability ,which is a state and quality of being adequately qualified for the profession and armed with a specific range of skills,strategies ,teaching methodology ,etc.There is no doubt saying that teacher's professional development never has an end.
Thus how to enhance the teacher's professional competence?According to the reflective model proposed by Wallance,the development of professional competence involves stage 1,stage 2 ,and an ultimate goal.
In the stage 1,language developement is an initial requirement for an English teacher ,who needs to have an excellent command of English herself .Since English is always changing ,the languange development seemly never comes to an end.
In the stage 2,it is more complicated because there are three elements contained here:leaning ,practice and reflection. For the part of learning stage,teachers need to get preparation before going to the real practice. In this stage,the insight they got from other teachers,the knowledge they received by referencing to the methodology books ,the experiences they accumulated from their teaching practice can definitely help them attain ongoing improvement.Next comes to the step of practicing and two kinds of practices are included here: internship which is usually guided by the professor and practice in real work. And if the practice is combined with ongoing reflection, the teachers will benefit more from it.
The ultimate goal is to enhance the teacher’s professional competence and this goal deserves teacher’s continuous efforts in learning, practicing and reflection in their whole life and which may be never achieved. Thus ,the teacher needs to have the faith in the first place before entering into the educational career.
All in all, teaching is an art as well as a science .As student teachers ,it is necessary to bear in mind that efforts for professional development never stop when they graduate but just start at the time they enter into the school.
