I believe that the teaching profession is one of the unique and completely different professions from many other professions. It is a profession with a human mission that is responsible for transferring knowledge to others, and it requires special skills due to constant contact and interaction with people of different gender, nationality, culture, class status...etc. The sanctity of the profession requires us to br always in diligent attempts for training and development to be as high as the majesty and greatness of the profession. In support of this philosophy, I aim to: -Development and renewal in the profession in accordance with the developments on the ground, so I joined most of the workshops and courses concerned with developing teaching and learning skills. -The principles that I take into account when practicing the profession are the principle of individual differences, because it enables them to invest in special abilities and develop creativity and innovation among students, while at the same time strengthening and empowering the defaulters among them. -Providing students with the ability to think, critically and objectively, and solve problems. -Strengthening some values through the educational process, such as: democracy, acceptance of others, dialogue...etc. -Link what the student learns to the lived reality and the changing events taking place in his society, which supports his knowledge and information.
