Portfolio Content Reflection Questions:Teaching Philosophy – TE320
 Why did you choose to include this piece?
 I chose this because it was the first assignment for which I reallythought long and hard about who I am and who I plan to be as ateacher. I’d written a lot of reflective pieces by this time, but I reallyhad never been asked to write about my idea of a teacher’s rolebefore. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be, but in the end, Ihad this naïve, altruistic idea of who I would be as a teacher that evennow, not more than a year after writing it, I kind if laugh at. Still, ittells me so much about who I am and how I’ve grown since then as Iprogressed through the TE program. You definitely see the progressionif you compare this to subsequent papers I wrote for other TE relatedclasses.
How does this piece compare to others in your portfolio?
It’s naïve and frank and silly and tells you a lot about the way my mindworks…so in that sense, I guess it’s a lot like some of the other piecesin the portfolio. It’s different in that I think about myself in terms of acareer, and it’s clear that I’m not so sure of myself in that respect. I’mnot nearly as headstrong and confident in this piece as I am in some of the others, and I think that comes across pretty clearly.
 What have others said to you about this piece?
I was told that I sound very much like the typical pre-teacher, whowants so badly to be good at the job but doesn’t quite know yet whatthat entails. I can honestly say I still feel the same way, although myextra placement experience and schooling since then have lead tomore concrete and insightful thoughts on what it means – in everyaspect of the word – to be a teacher, especially an English teacher.
If you had a chance to revise or re-address this piece (or the issue it represents), what would you do?
I don’t think I would touch this piece at all, but maybe I would begin anew teaching philosophy that would encompass everything that I’velearned and experienced since then. That’s the thing aboutphilosophies: they’re always growing, always changing. I could
