• Classroom Philosophy

    I am committed to making my classroom a safe and challenging environment and engaging my students through the curriculum as well as getting to know them and interacting with them one-on-one. I believe that meeting the needs of my students is a very crucial part of my classroom. I want them to feel comfortable with the other students, as well as me, so that there can be meaningful discussions and interactions. I want to encourage all students to participate in class so that they can learn from each other as well as me. I want to have an independent and unbiased classroom so that students can learn. I want to be as fair as I can be, so the students trust me. Instead of focusing solely on the misbehavior in the classroom, I want to focus on the good behavior and attitudes in my classroom. I will text parents positive feedback on a regular basis. I want to acknowledge and encourage good behavior and academic success in my classroom.

    I will encourage my students to achieve their personal best to help instill in them an intrinsic love for learning. I want to encourage them by giving them specific feedback on an assignment rather than a star and a "good job." I do not want them to become dependent on my praise, instead I want them to know from within that they have done their personal best, which may not be the same as that of another student.
