Our Students - Year 4/5 Room 9

I see teaching as involving a reciprocal relationship between teachers and students.

I believe that teachers have duties to their students and that students have duties to their teachers.

I believe that it is my responsibility as a teacher to provide students with the following:

  • an environment conducive to learning,
  • knowledge that will help them be successful in achieving their life goals,
  • materials, opportunities, and feedback that will help them learn, and
  • help in becoming and remaining motivated to be successful both in their studies, and in applying their knowledge to solve problems in their lives.

I also believe that my students have a responsibility to me, to their fellow students, and to themselves.

I believe that these responsibilities support me in fulfilling my duties to the students.

I believe that it is the students' responsibility to be supportive of the teacher and fellow students by being:

  • tolerant of different points of view,
  • prepared for class,
  • willing to work hard to complete activities,
  • willing to bring their life experiences into the class to enrich discussions
