Mission and Vision Statement
I will strive to educate all children. I will create learners that work together in a safe, respectful learning environment that encourages involvement, independence and responsibility. I will teach students to have high expectations and cooperation that will result in lifelong personal growth ( Majerich, D. M. (2012, September). Retreading the Grades K-16 Coordination Mission Statement).

As a classroom teacher it is very important to have your classroom set up to meet the needs of all students. My classroom will be organized so that students can work comfortably in the reading center, listening center, computer station, and teacher intervention center.

The reading center will have an ample amount of books; these books will include fiction, nonfiction, cultural books, holiday books, and seasonal reading material. In this center students will have the opportunity to read books or listen to them on the tape recorder with a partner. The reading center will have colorful beanbags for students to sit on just as well as a colorful sofa set. The bookshelves will be arranged so that students have privacy while reading, but the teacher will be able to monitor this area just as well as all others.

The computer station will be in a part of the room so that other students will not be distracted easily. Educational websites will be posted on the wall for students to see. Other websites will be saved on the computers desktop. On a daily basis students will be told what skills they will be working on when they go to the computer station.

The teacher intervention center will be set up so that students have access to all material needed while doing intervention with the teacher. Material will include paper, pencils, and reading
