Introduction:

Hello Parents,

My name is Iris Jones, and it’s a treat to be your child’s teacher at Aaron Cohn Middle School this 2017-2018 school year. I predict that it will be an incredible year for your child as he/she strives to perform his/her best behaviorally and academically. I thank you for all of your support, and please know that you are welcome to contact me for any suggestions and concerns. Thank you in advance for all that you will do this year to assist in the success of your child.

Sincerely,

Philosophy of Teaching:

I believe the fundamental goal of teaching is to foster learning. Learning takes place in many different circumstances and contexts. Although everyone is capable of learning, a student's desire to learn is a vital pre-condition to effectively mastering new concepts and skills. Humans have multiple learning styles: some learn best in lecture atmospheres, some are motivated by discussion, and others absorb best when they read and reflect on what they have read. The classroom setting can encourage or inhibit learning depending on the dominant learning style of each student. Accommodating different learning styles creates an atmosphere that is conducive to learning. Students take many of their learning habits from the instructor. If the instructor doesn't show interest in the subject and a passion for learning, students are less likely to put forth the effort to learn in that class. An instructor must convince students of his or her knowledge and expertise before they will show a willingness to learn.
