•      In my classroom, community and classroom management go hand in hand. I work extremely hard in the beginning to build relationships with each student and as a whole group. I believe that students at this age are capable of following the expectation and taking responsibility for their actions. When a good relationship of trust is built in the beginning, students will know that redirection is being made out of love and ultimately for their success. Most communication will be done through Bloomz and phone conferences. If the problem continues, a face to face conference may be called. Students are expected to be responsible, respectful, and ready to learn each day. Students are expected to work hard and do their best. When we make a mistake, it shows that we are trying and learning!!
