My Teaching Philosophy

  1. 1. My Teaching Philosophy Firstand foremost, I am passionateaboutmy students. They are the number one reason I love coming to schooleach and every day. I make it my priority to develop positiveand trusting relationships with all of them. Research suggests that among school-related factors (location, resources, testing, programs, education levels and administration) the relationship between the teacher and her students is the most significantwhen it comes to success and achievement in the classroom. On a daily basis, I provideengaging activities, projects and literacy based on my students’ interests to build on their strengths while consistently improving any areas of weakness. To be an effective teacher who creates success for her students, I focus on these six areas as best practice: Environment  Safe  Inclusive  Areas of interest  Cooperative  Shared responsibility Community  Acceptance  Respect diversity  Encouragement  Problem-solving  Collaboration ClassroomManagement  Fair  Consistent  Positive choices  Natural consequences  “Fill My Cup” Program
