I believe in creating a learning environment that makes students feel comfortable and welcomed. It is important that students have consistency and structure. Therefore, expectations and rules will be evident and very clear. I make my students feel safe and they can talk to me about anything. It is my personal belief that EVERY child is capable of learning and WILL learn. There are a repertoire of ways to reach students and I feel that it is my duty to find how each student best learns so that learning for every student is optimized. Every day in my class is a celebration because each child goes home learning something that they didn’t know the day before. In room 313, students are praised for both big and small accomplishments. Students learn as individuals and they work and learn together. We are a team in Room 313. I believe that teamwork makes the dream work. So, I will work with parents, students, and myself to ensure that the dream of success is achieved!
