We Challenge You: Turn Your BELIEFS into ACTIONS!

A sweet blogger friend of mine, Soney from Sunny Days in School, mentioned to me that With Love From Texas is hosting an education beliefs blog hop and I am excited to share with you my beliefs.  I know this blog post will take me no time at all to compose, because I know exactly why I do what I do. 

...or so I thought!

As I struggled to put my beliefs into words, it became clear I had not clearly articulated my beliefs since the educational philosophy essays I wrote during college. Now, after a great deal of brainstorming, soul searching, and revision, I am finally sure I can express them perfectly.  Without further ado, these are the education beliefs you will see in action when you visit my classroom:

This has been more of a challenge than I originally anticipated, but I am so glad I took the time to complete it, as it has enabled me to step back and focus on the upcoming school year.  I printed this poster and plan to hang it on my desk at school as a constant reminder of my beliefs, so I can stay focused on what is important to me and remember to put my students and their education first.

What are some of your education beliefs?  Let me hear them in your comments below and then hop on over to Keeping Life Creative to read her beliefs about reading education.


  1. love your beliefs. I majored in early education, I agree, early intervention is KEY!!!

    I also love your statement about safe classrooms!

    Thanks for sharing. I too, hadn't done this since college, it was very challenging, but worth it!
