The Image Of A 21st Century Educator As Perceived By Stakeholders
AbstractThis study was conducted to point out the desirable traits and attributes expected of a 21st century teacher in the view of stakeholders in order for the different educational bodies to plan, design, and implement teacher development programs that would not only promote the practice of skills and the new ways of approaching teaching but also the development of the teachers as persons interacting with the various stakeholders of education.
This study was descriptive in nature. The researchers distributed a survey checklist as measuring instruments in collecting data to determine the traits and attributes that a teacher of 21st century should possess. A survey checklist was used to gather data about the traits and attributes of a 21st century teacher from the points of view of the stakeholders.
Based from the data gathered a 21st century teacher should be smart, well-mannered and disciplined, open-minded in the way he/she thinks, confident in talking, creative and responsible in her work, understanding in the way he/she deals with others, respectful in dealing with students, and is patient.
A teacher should also know how to react when faced with some academic situations. A 21st century teacher should consider as a good opportunity to enhance teaching skills when he/she is assigned to handle a multicultural class. Furthermore, he /she should cheer up and challenged when a coached team fails to win in a competition. The teacher should also review the weak areas, and help in improving the school performance in the event that the school’s over-all performance in accreditation is falling. The teacher will also observe a colleague when he/she violates school rules and policies; when a superior reprimands a colleague, the teacher consoles him/her.
