Mrs Golfis: Introduction to the classroom

Teaching Philosophy.

* Piaget's Constructivist view: Students learn in different ways, however I believe a 'hands on' approach is a way to maximize learning.
* Collaborative learning.

You cannot teach without learning - they go together!

Protocols

Classrooms need rules.
Learning needs to be fun. The students need to want to learn.
The rules need to be decided by the teacher and the students together.
As a teacher I will expect the students to be respectful and polite.
As a teacher I will treat my students with respect.
As a teacher I will always be positive towards students, encouraging them to do their best.

Learning needs to be fun - students need to want to learn!
