1 Welcome to 3rd Grade Mrs. Young 2014-15

2 Statement of Purpose: Why I Teach I believe all children can learn and deserve the best education. I believe I can provide a climate that promotes fairness and respect, where students feel safe. I believe this safe environment fosters and promotes self-directed, reflective learning for all students. I believe that as a teacher, it is my responsibility to teach and promote social development and group responsibility. I believe as a teacher, I play one of the critical roles in a child’s life. That role is not to be taken lightly, and that role is to be treated with respect. I believe as a teacher, it is important to model the love of learning that lasts a lifetime. I believe in myself as a teacher, and strive everyday to become better than the day before.

5 Weekly Report

6 We are learning to respect each other as individuals and encouraging everyone to be their best. Instead of telling the teacher every time there is a problem, and as a way to promote problem solving, I encourage students to talk about their problem and try to solve it themselves using an “I” message: "I feel _____ when you_______ so could you please ________." If a student is hurt or threatened, they need to tell me or an adult.
