Celebratory Best Practice
The most important criteria for the ideal classroom is believing in your students. When a student knows that I, the teacher, have faith in their abilities, they believe in themselves and thus is a formula for success. When goals are achieved, our classroom celebrates as a team. Our classroom goal is for every student to succeed in a positive and encouraging environment.
Instructional Best Practice
It is most important for every student to have an understanding of what is expected of them to prepare for class and during class. Expectations are set high for achievement and behavior. Every student knows they can succeed and will succeed. When students respect each other and classroom rules…. then the outcome, LEARNING, is easily achieved.
My teacher thought I was smarter than I was – so I was.
