1. Take the time to build community and trust in the classroom. Remember that kids (and adults!) learn better if they feel safe and cared for...

2. Remember that what you see with kids and their behavior is only 1/2 the story...you might see a child not paying attention--they may be hungry or lonely or hurt. Try to get to the core of problems without dismissing the child as lazy or ADD, etc.

3. Remember that all kids learn differently and at different paces and be prepared to find some easy ways to engage the strong students and support the struggling ones.


It's the best job in the world.
