As a teacher, the role I believe they should play in the classroom is to be seen as the teacher but also as their friend. I believe that is it the teacher's job to create a fun atmosphere for learning. The teacher should set up their classroom with a lot of different materials and manipulatives that will interest the students in learning. The students should be able to develop trust within their teachers. Each student should be able to know that they can come to their teacher for anything. For example, when they need help with a subject, life issues, or just needing someone to talk to. The teacher should never be too busy for a student. As a future educator, I plan to always be available for my students. I feel like children will learn best in an atmosphere where they are respected and valued as an individual. I want my students to know that they can come to me for anything that they may need help with. I will be willing to come in to school early or, even if it required me, to stay late after school. I always will be there for my students. I will show my students that I care for them and want them to be successful in school and have a flourishing future. I will not allow for my personal life to get in the way of my ability to teach. I also will not allow a student to become involved in my personal life.
