How to Pick the Best Teachers for Preschool Excellence?
This is one of those situations where you really need to measure many times over before you cut.
In fact, the moment you enroll your child and make a decision on your kid’s educational options, you are triggering a chain reaction that may lead to situations that are very hard to unwind. You want to get this done right the first time around. The best way to do this, of course, is to make sure that you are making a truly informed decision.
This is not always easy because there is an ongoing and raging debate in the educational world between internalist education and externalist philosophy. The internalist school emphasizes values. In other words, they are saying that what makes a person successful in life has less to do with that person’s external inputs like the physical state of their schools, how much money is budgeted to their local school district and the overall quality of their teachers and reading materials or educational resources.
According to this philosophy, kids just need to pick up on certain key core values early enough and this would produce a sustainable internalized system that enables these children to adapt regardless of where they find themselves.
There is quite a bit of research to back this up. There are many children from Los Angeles in California who grew up in a very depressed and crime prone area. However, these kids end up doing really well in life. Many became doctors, lawyers, engineers, some even became politicians. Many entered government service.
Many of these individuals generated incomes that are many times the average household income in the United States. By all measures, these children, which society generally would look to as developing substandard or below average life prospects, ended up beating the average.
And it is not due to their surroundings. It is definitely not due to their parents. Many of these children were actually the children of single moms. Many did not even know their fathers, but they still ended up doing really well. The internalist school focuses on key values that are not necessarily academic in nature.
If you want this school of thought to be the guiding principle for the educational options you would like to pick for your child, then focus on the best teachers. By best teachers, I’m not just talking about academic credentials. Instead, focus on the proper values that these teachers bring to the table. These teachers should push and challenge your kids to expect more from themselves. They should also mold your kids to take the initiative and overcome fear.
You have to understand that people who succeed in life are not necessarily the ones who are best equipped. They’re not necessarily the ones who are naturally talented or initially skilled. Instead, they are the individuals who will not take no for an answer.
These are individuals who will keep getting beaten down by life, but they keep getting back up and trying and trying again until they eventually win. These are the individuals who put themselves in situations where they connect the dots as far as their initial failures are concerned. Armed with that kind of attitude, then it’s no surprise that these kids end up winning in life.
Pick teachers who have gone through such a situation and are able and willing and eager to impart such knowledge. That’s how you pick the very best teachers for preschool excellence. In fact, this excellence extends way beyond your children’s preschool career.
