Mrs. Dowling's Vision for a Successful Classroom
- Security. Students must feel safe enough in the classroom to take risks in the course of their learning.
- Identity. Each student must be recognized as an individual with unique needs and abilities.
- Responsibility. The class belongs as much to the students as it does to the teacher.
- Dignity. All classroom members should have self-respect and respect for the thoughts and actions of others.
Together, the teacher, students and parents create a support
system that encourages reciprocal trust and responsibility.
