While in college, I experienced a glimpse of nearly every aspect of teaching. By the time I walked across the stage, I had a significantly greater appreciation of the profession. It’s complexity is something I’ve never seen.
There’s lengthy background knowledge, several unique academy environments, and even more variety in the practice of teaching/learning.
One particular area I enjoyed studying, was called the 8 Learning Styles. These are also known as Multiple Intelligences. I believe this is one of the most critical aspects because it emphasizes the significance of individuality. As a teacher, his/her responsibility is to teach (Duh right!). He/She must understand the students well enough to bridge the teaching with their learning.
Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences

- Logical-Mathematical: logic smart
