I believe that all students thrive and learn when they feel heard and valued. This means: understanding that before I teach content, my students must know that I value them; knowing that my most powerful teaching tool is the congruence between my actions and my words; being intentional about language; and speaking about children in terms of their strengths and their areas of growth, not their deficits.
Ultimately, it means adopting a long-term view of students and relentlessly using a growth mindset in all manners of interacting with them in the learning environment.
