My teaching philosophy is to create an environment where children feel safe to take chances and make mistakes. I don't want to just impart facts and information to students, but rather to teach them to think, and solve problems. I hope that the students learn to look at the world from different perspectives, and to be interested in the world around them. I set high expectations for every student, and try very hard to come up with different ways to teach the curriculum so that no matter what type of learner the student is, he/she can be successful. I don't make excuses for my students, nor do I accept excuses from them. In my class, effort is everything. My students know that in the classroom I am the leader, but they also tend to view me as a very motherly figure. Because of our small class size, I am able to have a close, personal relationship with each of my students and their families. We have three basic classroom rules that seem to cover just about everything: 1) Try to do your best everyday. 2) Practice self-control 3) Practice the Golden Rule. I let my students know that even though they are very young, they still get to make choices but that they must be prepared to accept the consequences of those choices. If my students have the strong foundation that will carry them into the next grade, and they feel good about their year with me, then I feel like that is success.
