The cultivation of young minds is one of the most challenging tasks that any teacher can and will experience. I feel it is important to stress that all students can learn. Not every student will be on the same level and that is why it is essential to recognize each student’s individual strengths, as well as their individual weaknesses. Differentiated instruction and cooperative learning should be used to best meet the needs of each student. Regardless of these defined levels, high expectations must be clearly articulated, rather than simply promoting minimum standards. I believe that if I expect more out of my students, then they can, and will achieve more.
