Thanks to the support of the teaching profession center, essays have become my specialty.

Q1. What made you want to become a teacher?

By admiring the teacher in charge of the elementary school who recommended me to take the junior high school exam and changed my life, I became a teacher. In addition, I was able to have many valuable experiences such as going to educational training, actually interacting with children, giving lessons, and attending athletic meet together. After completing the practical training, I felt that the teacher was a very rewarding job, and I was able to strengthen my desire to become a teacher.

Q2. Please tell us what you worked on to become a teacher after enrollment.

It is a mock lesson in the introduction and teaching method. I tried to cherish each lesson. My classmates are friends of university students, but I made preparations with a firm awareness that they were elementary school children. I came up with a lot of ideas with friends who formed pairs and groups, and thought about how the recipient could be interested in the lesson and how to enjoy the lesson.

Q3. How was it using the teaching profession center?

Thank you very much for your preparation for the teacher employment exam. In particular, I often used the teaching profession center to correct essays. I was not good at writing essays, but I had them go through and correct them over and over again, and carefully taught me the appropriate expressions and contents for the teacher employment exam. As a result, on the contrary, I was able to make it my specialty, and I was really grateful.

Q4. Please tell me the measures for the teacher employment exam.

I'm the type who gets very nervous when I appear in public, and I'm not good at personal interviews in the teacher employment exam. Therefore, I concentrated on each practice and tried to get used to the tension as much as possible. Also, just before the exam, I was in the summer vacation at the university, but I was practicing with my close friends and friends who came to school. It was also my learning to get acquainted with the practice of other local governments and to experience a lot of interviewer roles.

Q5. Please tell us what you learned in the practical training.

In the practical training, I tried my best to communicate with the children from the first day. I tried my best in class, played with all my strength during breaks, and practiced athletic meet with all my strength with the children. As a result, I learned that children can respond with all their might by facing them with all their might. In class, I remember being very happy that he said "It was easy to understand!" And "The teacher's class was fun!" And that the child who usually did not express his emotions cried on the final day. It was a practical training that I thought I would do my best not only as a teacher in the future but also in every situation.

Q6. Please tell us the image of the teacher you are aiming for.

I aim to be a teacher who can bring out the goodness and potential of children. Each child has its own strengths and potential. I think that finding, pulling out, and extending it will have a great impact on a child's life. For that reason, I would like to get involved with the children a lot and praise them for what I think is good.

Q7. Please give some advice to current students who are aiming to become teachers.

There is such a word, "I will do my best to wait for my destiny." This is my name. It means that you can do what you can and leave it to heaven to decide what the result will be. I think this can be said not only for the teacher recruitment exam, but for all situations in which you aim to become a teacher. The same is true for mock lessons. The same is true for educational training. Of course, studying for employment exams is also the same. Do your best with the feeling that you will do everything you can to become a teacher. I support you.
