Course Code: Fifth Grade
Mrs. Buehler's Fifth Grade Class
It is my belief that all children are a precious gift from God with unique qualities and experiences which benefit everyone in the classroom.
My goal as a teacher is to foster their strengths and minimize their weaknesses. In order for a child to learn, he or she must feel safe to take risks and try new things.
By creating a classroom of mutual respect and acceptance, each child can reach an educational peak every day.
I strive for each child to develop a hunger for learning. I work to present the educational material in a variety of different techniques and learning styles. Classroom instruction includes computers, smart board lessons, music, drama, hands on activities, oral instruction and recitation, graphical display, video, art projects and more.
I place a heavy emphasis on reading in my classroom. My shelves are filled with wonderful literature. My students will see me reading, talking about books and I constantly encourage them to read. I believe that reading is the key to success in all academic areas. It is my dream to create life long readers in all my students.
Above all, I want my students to know that God loves them very much and I want them to experience that love through me. I want my students to leave school each day knowing, "You is kind. You is smart. You is important." a quote from Mae Mobley in the book The Help.
