Every child deserves a safe classroom environment where their gifts are appreciated, their weaknesses are accepted, and their learning style is incorporated into the teacher's lessons. The Common Core standards, higher order questioning, differentiation and data tracking is imperative to growing each and every student. Celebrating success and teaching students to learn from their mistakes helps children grow into lifelong learners. Never set limits on what your students can learn. Teach to the smartest student in your class and differentiate from there.
