Element 7

Element 7:

Teachers are actively engaged members of their profession and the wider community:

I believe I have not achieved all of element 7, as I have not had enough time within my teaching profession within a school community to be able to establish a relationship with parents.

I have established in a short period of time to work effectively with my cooperating teacher and other teachers, through planning lessons and units of work.

I understand and abide by teacher responsibilities and student’s rights as these play an important role in education as all people in the classroom should feel safe.

I need to communicate more with parents and caregivers and include them in their child’s learning by letting them know what is happening in the classroom and involving them as much as possible.

I will try to work more on my communication with parents on my next work experience and as finding out new strategies my cooperating teacher may use.
