School Education Plan
Teach them well and let them lead the way...
Every classroom presents a unique community of learners that varies not only in abilities, but also in learning styles. Our roles as teachers is to give children the tools with which to cultivate their own gardens of knowledge. To accomplish this goal, we will teach to the needs of each child so that all learners can feel capable and successful. We will present curriculum that involves the interests of the children and makes learning relevant to life. We will incorporate themes, integrated units, projects, group work, individual work, and hands-on learning in order to make children active learners. Finally, we will tie learning into the world community to help children become caring and active members of society.
Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride...
Our classrooms will be a caring, safe, and equitable environment where each child can blossom and grow. We will allow children to become responsible members of our classroom community by using strategies such as class meetings, positive discipline, and democratic principles. In showing children how to become responsible for themselves as well as their own learning, we am giving them the tools to become successful in life, to believe in themselves, and to love themselves.
Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be...
Teaching is a lifelong learning process of learning about new philosophies and new strategies, learning from the parents and community, learning from colleagues, and especially learning from the children. Children can teach us to open our minds and hearts to the joys, the innocence, and the diversity of ideas in the world.
