I want my students to become life long learners who will become productive people in society. I will show students that learning can be fun by using games and working in groups. It is my belief that most students learn when they are motivated and interested in what is being taught. It is my desire to find ways to hook the students, energize them to learn while they are with me, and to make it meaningful. My strengths in the classroom are to make learning fun and exciting for the students, and because they are having fun they don't realize they are learning. I will teach students to be active, productive students in my classroom, by giving them a voice in what I am teaching. I do this through class meetings and encouraging dialogue. Allowing the students to speak their mind, and have a say in how we will run the classroom keeps them invested in what they are learning.
