I believe in establishing and maintaining a safe, welcoming, and inclusive envisionment. I will do this by modeling for students what respect and acceptance look’s like for all students.
I believe in an interactive classroom. It is important that I engage students to have a dialogue with not only their peers but also myself. I will welcome diverse opinions throughout my teaching methods.
I believe that it is important to teach by example. I want my students to follow routines; therefore as their teacher, I will stick to the classroom routine that was co-created between students and myself. This will help students establish familiar habits. I will always be well prepared because I believe in organization.
As a new teacher, I am very open to any suggestions and advice. I believe that I should always be growing and learning with my students. I believe that when students open their hearts this is when true learning begins.
