"rich, open-ended contexts in

"meet together to discuss ideas, to think about learning of particular children & to take collective responsibility for everybody's learning" as well as "help each other to reflect" (pg. 78)
Students will have the ability to chose their

The classroom will be a safe & accepting environment. Students will feel like the classroom belongs to them. Posters on the walls, books in the library, and play materials will
reflect the cultures & races
of the children in the classroom.  
Students will be provided with an array of
for assignments so that they can respond to & express their learning using their strengths. Also, by providing students with

Students' learning will be evident by looking at a

"make learning more interesting and personally meaningful to children" (pg. 39).
Students will participate in hands-on engaging activities and experiments in order to bring their learning to life. They will explore their materials and environment and reach discoveries and conclusions.
Students will assume the role of teacher and be the "expert" on various topics. Through peer teaching, students are provided with opportunities to reinforce & trust in their own knowledge, build confidence, practice communication & social skills, and have the freedom to chose how they would like to demonstrate and express their learning.
"by encouraging collaboration and mutual support, she created conditions for people to share expertise, to learn from and with one another and value each other's contributions" (pg. 87).
As a future educator, I know that I will be a life long learner. Working in a school will provide me with a community of learners, and I will grow through my interactions with colleagues, the students & their families, and the surrounding communities. I will be willing to further my education through courses, workshops, and professional developments in order to keep up with current and best practices.
My classroom will be an inviting environment in which parents can come and share their expertise with the class. Parents know their children better than anyone else, so I will be glad to take their advice, ideas, and/or recommendations to better the lives' of my students.
I will make sure to collaborate with my Team as frequently as I can, and to consider any/all criticism that I receive. I will be willing to co-teach when possible, and to integrate any techniques from OT/PT/etc. that will benefit my students.
It is important for the students to reflect on their lives (not just academics) and let me know who they really are. If I know their interests and likes, I can make strong attempts at incorporating these into our activities and daily lessons. If students are honest about what they find difficult and what goals they have for themselves, I can help them be as successful as they can.
Growing and learning begin at home before students are old enough to attend school. Each child has an extremely different upbringing and are exposed to different things in life. If parents can inform and educate me on their child, then I can use this information to an advantage in helping their child learn in the most beneficial way.
