The kids who excel in art and use art as an outlet, it’s wonderful to be able to provide that for them.” -Ms. Shuler, Elementary Art Teacher
-Communicating with parents or guardians about student learning Teachers call their students’ parents to express concern or to give positive feedback. Newsletters are an effective way to communicate with parents.
-Making the physical environment as safe and conducive to learning as possible. Tennis balls on bottom of chairs Student achievements posted in the classroom Bulletin boards serve a purpose

What is Teaching? Teaching is more work than I thought. It takes a lot of preparation and skill to get in front of a classroom and teach. Teaching is being confident and taking charge of the classroom. Keeping all of the students’ attention is difficult. When I become a teacher I hope to bring fun and new ideas into the classroom. I want to be every student’s favorite teacher.
