20+ years that have included working with students at K-12 in public and private schools.
I try to be a good role model, showing my students courtesy and respect, and keeping my sense of humor. I usually demonstrate expectations and then step aside to facilitate students as they develop new skills and knowledge. Students also need a secure, predictable environment. Consistent rules and procedures help students feel emotionally safe so they can take risks and ask for help.
