My Classroom Management Philosophy

Decent Essays
My philosophy of education is that all children have a right to learn and to grow mentally. Each student’s needs should be met and not used against them. I believe all teachers should strive to make a long-lasting impression on each student. I do not want my students growing up and feeling that they didn’t have a single teacher help lead them in the right direction.

They will also be allowed to choose what materials they plan on using when it comes to projects. My plan is to encourage decision
