Standard III. Positive Learning Environment
strive to keep my classroom welcoming and safe at all times. I want to
ensure that all of my students feel positively about being in my
classroom and taking an active part in our joint learning experience.
Making my students feel respected and appreciated is a big part of it, and it is what allows me to get to instruction. Once I have my students' attention and respect I encourage effort and persistence and continue to demand their active involvement.
