I believe that each child has the potential to do great things and to be a productive and successful member of society, all that is needed is someone willing to invest in them. I strive to be that someone to each of my students, to help them develop a love of learning, to make lessons come alive and to foster curiosity in my students so that they may never lose their desire to learn.
I believe a teacher's role is that of a guide and facilitator, providing access to information rather than acting as the primary source of information. I achieve this in my classroom by creating lessons that engage my students as well as address each of my student's learning needs and styles, allowing them the opportunity for individual discovery.
I encourage my students to own their education. When students have ownership of their learning, they are more motivated to reach their academic and personal goals.
A safe and inviting classroom as well as lessons that are relevant and meaningful are very
important to a student's self-discovery. I believe that a curriculum should be a guideline, a teacher must teach according to the needs of his/her class, not only meeting standards but ensuring that real learning takes place.
I believe that a classroom can be both fun and disciplined, prevention is key when creating an environment conducive to learning. Rules are clearly set and explained early in the year and students are aware of what is expected of them as well as what they can expect of the teacher.
