Mrs. Darrow Fourth Grade
By Mindy Darrow
My teaching philosophy is very simple. I believe in running a classroom like a community, a community of caring learners. I want each student to take responsibility for his or her own learning. Students come to school to learn and grow as a person. I want learning growth to be the top priority in our classroom.
We will build our classroom rules together as a class to provide student ownership. Our rules will focus on respect for ourselves, respect for others, and respect for our community.
I base my classroom philosophy on Responsive Classroom, Quantum Learning, and thinking with a Growth Mindset. I have reading materials for all three programs if you are interested in finding out more about these classroom management programs.
I believe all students can learn and thrive given the correct opportunity. My goal is to help provide this opportunity.
