Helping Krystal Lunsford with a mispelled word.
This is my fourth year with Atlanta Public Schools and Carver School of Health Sciences and Research, however, this is my sixth year teaching Spanish. So far, I have truly enjoyed the successes and challenges of the current school year, and I welcome those to come. While this electronic portfolio is in no way encompassing of what I do each and everyday, I hope to provide an insight into the type of teacher I am and what goes on inside my classroom.
I believe that all students can learn, and effective teachers address the individual needs and intelligences of their students to ensure that occurs. It is necessary to incorporate varied and meaningful activities in a student-centered atmosphere in order to keep students engaged in the learning process. I feel it is equally important for educators to be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about what they teach because it will evoke enthusiasm in the students too!
Classroom Management Theory/Discipline Plan
1st offense: Warning
2nd offense: Speak with advisor or another adult in the building, with whom the student has a rapport.
3rd offense: Phone call to parents
4th offense: Conference with parents
5th offense: Referral to administration
I believe in rewarding good behavior too, and for that reason I offer student incentives such as, “No-Homework” passes, extra credit points, snacks, positive phone calls to parents, and Student of the Month awards.
