I believe that a teacher should also set an environment outside of the classroom – the hallway, during activities, and after school. PHILOSOPHY : PHILOSOPHY -My personal philosophy revolves around the idea that the classroom is a place of learning, based in a foundation of mutual respect. -The teacher must be an authority figure, but must interact with the students in a way that shows respect. -Detached authority works to an extent, but I believe it is much more important to be consistent, and respect each student as an individual. POSITIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT : POSITIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT A positive learning environment is one in which all the students feel safe and comfortable, and can express their questions and concerns effectively. It also acknowledges the differences in educational levels and encourages each student. COMPONENTS: -Adherence to rules -Thorough understanding of procedures -Varied teaching styles (also differentiated instruction)? -Interactive lessons RULES : RULES 1. Follow directions the FIRST time they're given. 2. RESPECT! Keep your hands, feet, personal objects, and negative comments to yourself. 3. Be in your seat, prepared and ready to work, when the bell rings. 4. No eating or drinking in class. CONSEQUENCES : CONSEQUENCES 1. Verbal warning 2. Apology letter (Behavioral Improvement Form)? 3. Detention/After school conference 4. Parent contact (Combined with #2 and #3)? 5. Office referral I have the ability to skip any of the above steps if I deem appropriate. REWARDS : REWARDS - Verbal praise (Also notes of praise with tickets)? - Tickets - Readiness points - Student of the week (Changed to Cooke's Classroom Champs – top 30 students in all classes)? - “A” Team recognition after tests (Not applicable)?
