It is essential that teachers know and understand this and know how to properly support their students. A socially just teachers needs to know what each individual student needs in order to succeed and do everything in their power to help them get there. Teachers need to be an advocate for their students and create an environment that is safe for them to be themselves and succeed. A highly effective teacher is someone who is great at teaching concepts from a textbook, but, more importantly, can teach life lessons. Teachers have the ability to change lives.
It is imperative for a teacher to connect with students and this can be done with an effective learning management plan. It requires the teacher to be able to teach students in an environment that is conducive to learning. This must be something that the teacher is capable of doing without any types of distractions from students. Teachers must be knowledgeable in the area that they are teaching and be able to communicate to the students what is to be learned. Teachers must be able to also develop a relationship with students that will allow them to learn and be productive.
The way for this is for teachers to be trained and prepared to manage these behaviors. It is essential that teachers are trained in the skills and strategies to support behavior management in the classroom as well as the ability to differentiate instruction for students with special needs (Graves, Lamport & Ward, 2012). This importance on classroom management is so vital that it may require considering the correct teacher when recruiting the classroom for the students with disabilities. This way the classroom teacher is the correct one of the position and will be most likely able to handle the new classroom management needs. Teacher training should enable them to know the proper techniques and strategies for their classroom management to create the positive environment for all students.
This will be accomplished by allowing the students to take charge of their learning so that it will hold some significance to them. I feel it is my responsibility to help shape the students’ character, as well as their minds. An educator should model the behaviors that are expected from their students. An educator should practice ideal qualities such as acceptance, empathy, and broadmindedness. A teacher is not the only model that students will be exposed to in their life.
There are many different ways to run a successful and effective classroom. Numerous people have tried to give me the best advice for making things work, but ultimately it will be my choice to decide what works best for me. By assessing the students' needs, I will be able to provide a curriculum and classroom environment that will hopefully motivate their learning. In assessing my own needs, I can make the proper actions necessary to make sure that those needs are met. Rules and consequences fall under both the needs of the student and the teacher, so those are essential as well.
My overall goal as a teacher is to do my best to ensure that every student is prepared for the next grade level and beyond. As I said earlier, every student has something different to offer the classroom, but the classroom should have only one thing to offer each student; success. Success doesn’t just meaning receiving good grades though. Success could be improving behavior in the classroom or overcoming a social problem. Some students will have no problem with achieving this success, but for others it will be a real struggle.

I believe that it is important to share learning environment to our students and welcome them to and by having a safe environment with out student’s education. In conclusion, us teachers must find ways to reach the minds of every individual by allowing them to express themselves and understand every lesson taught. My goal as a teacher is to provide to in each and every student with the necessary skills and knowledge so they could succeed on their own. I want to leave a memory of myself as a teacher who was not afraid to roll up the sleeves to help another student in any way and influenced others to do the right thing.
I should establish goals, purpose, and interactive instruction when working with students. I should be able to clarify confusion and provide differentiated tasks for students in my future teaching practices. As a teacher, I would offer models of behaviour; for instance, presenting students that creating an anchor chart helps to remember the course materials. Teachers should respond flexibly to students’ response and encourage students to self-monitor. I believe that it is essential to adapt independent learning skills in my future classroom since independent learning help students to improve their academic performances, increase motivation, confidence, and self-assessment
I believe that it is important to students to teach them how to learn such as test taking skills to reinforce success, not failure. I think we as teachers should make it relevant and give them the knowledge that will help them survive and thrive in the world outside of the education setting. I believe that teachers should work with others and integrate the curriculum across the domains. Students must have access to the use of technology, as this is the world the lay before them. Let students teach students, they love to be in charge even if it just for a little while.
Classroom management is critical when in an educational classroom environment that involves all students. My main goal is to have a safe and inviting classroom environment that students feel comfortable and allow them to reach their full potential and be successful. I believe that students need to be taught self-discipline like Gordon’s Theory (57). When you impose self-discipline, you must be able to correct students in order to students to demonstrate appropriate behavior. Whereas when you teach discipline, you are helping them learn and develop your expectations and students will acquire this information in a more respectful manner.
