Descriptive Statement

The purpose of this document is to give a sample of my beliefs about classroom

management and how I would use my beliefs in my ideal classroom someday. The beliefs I have

on classroom management have developed over a period of classroom observations and also

plan on teaching the students about responsibilities and taking ownership of their mistakes.

as I am about the new year and your child’s educations. My classroom is always open for you to

come in and visit. If you have any questions regarding your child’s education or behaviors in my
