My Teacher Creed

1. Engage them.

2. Provide them predictable structure.

3. Spend most of your time bent down at their level. Look them in the eyes.

4. Always expect each child to do the most amazing things according to his/her potential.

5. Praise and inspire them. Be genuine.

6. Ensure they truly learn. Guide them but give them independence so they come to key conclusions on their own.

7. Keep them safe.

8. Care about them.

9. Expect the unexpected.

10. Be humbled by them.
