Creating A Climate For Learning
  • Effective teachers believe that all students can
    learn and be successful. Effective teachers
    consciously create a climate in which all
    students feel included. Effective teachers
    believe that there is potential in each learner
    and commit to finding the key that will unlock
    the potential.
  • Gregory Chapman. (2007). Differentiated
    Instructional Strategies One Size Doesnt Fit

  • Closely related to teachers behavior is the
    development of a classroom climate conducive to
    good thinkingstudents cannot think well in a

    their classrooms more thoughtful places by
    demonstrating in their actions that they welcome
    originality and differences of opinion.

What I am taking away today, What I still
hope to get,.
That Noble Title Teacher As you begin this school
year, may you remember the fine nuances and the
distinguishing essence of that proud word
Teacher. Let you be reminded of the tools you
have at your command, because of your talents,
your traits, and your trainingand because you
chose to become a Teacher. Teacher you are a
poet, as you weave with your colorful magic
language a passion for your subject. You create a
vast and grand mosaic of curiosities to imagine,
secrets to unfold, connections only to begin the
cycle of learning. Teacher you are a physicist,
as you bring magic, logic, reason, and wonder to
the properties, changes and interactions of our
universe. Teacher you are a maestro, a master
of composing as you conduct and orchestrate
individuals thoughts and actions from discordant
cacophony into harmonic resonance. Teacher you
are an architect, as you provide each student a
solid foundation, but always with a vision of the
magnificent structure that is about to
change. Teacher you are a gymnast, as you
encourage the contortions and gyrations of
thoughts and the flexing and strengthening of
ideas. Teacher you are a diplomat and the
ambassador of tact and sensitivity, as you
facilitate productive, positive interactions
among the multiplicity of personalities and
cultures, beliefs, and ideals. Teacher you are
a philosopher, as your actions and ethics convey
meaning and hope to young people who look to you
for guidance and example. -Trish
Marcuzzo Omaha Public Schools
