This H principle is very near and dear to my heart. Coming from a family that was going through a divorce when I was going through school it would have been really nice if my teacher stressed the importance of having my family care about how I was doing in school. Yes, I understand that some communities do not consider parents being in their children’s’ school life as a norm, however, I think that is when I can serve as a role of somebody in their community of people to encourage them with their future and getting students to praise one another for the work that they have contributed to the classroom experience.
In my classroom I plan to have family and community a key role in how my classroom functions. I want each of my students to care about the other students in their class and encourage one another and lift one another up so that every student feels welcome and loved. I want to do this because I believe that students need to have a community or support system to help them grow and develop as they learn.
