I feel that I meet this standard because I understand many of the theoretical frameworks that are used to explain how learners develop. It was particularly useful when working on a group project for during one of my college classes, because understanding the underlying frameworks for development can help explain why some people develop mental health issues. This can be particularly valuable in the classroom because some students will exhibit certain behaviors, while others will not. This has also helped me while doing my student teaching because I can recognize now that environmental factors at home really do impact behavior at school (both positively and negatively).
Furthermore, in my Philosophy of Education Statement, I specifically talk about the wide variety of subject matter within the Computer Science field, and how my previous career experience can help bring a fresh perspective that should engage learners from a variety of backgrounds. And since I've been performing my student teaching, I can see that this is still a very true statement, because I've been able to provide concrete examples (from my experience) that have helped some students who were struggling to understand certain abstract concepts. I truly believe that Computer Science is such a wide field that anyone from any background can find a place where they can succeed within it.
