As a teacher, I understand and strongly believe that all students are individuals who come with their own personalities and styles of learning. This way of thinking is embedded into my teaching and I use it to teach academic skills such as reading, writing, math, science, and technology. Differentiated instruction is used in my classroom to have all students reach their highest potential.
I also recognize that students have their own culture and it is my responsibility to have this play an important role in how the class will come to an understanding of each other. I will provide my students with the necessary tools to learn life long skills that will enable them to be successful individuals in today's society. This incorporates such skills as problem solving, critical thinking, flexibility, manners, empathy, responsibility, and most importantly self-awareness.
In my classroom, all my students are equal and they will all learn from each other and myself. In return, I know that I will learn from them. We are a team and together we can achieve any goal our hearts desire.
