August 8th, 2019
Hello, and welcome to my classroom page. My name is Caitlin Whiten, and this is my third year teaching at Aaron Cohn. I feel extremely blessed to work at a school with such wonderful students, parents, faculty, and staff, and I look forward to strengthening these relationships as my time here continues.
I am passionate about teaching; I love working with students and watching them grow daily. I truly believe that every child wants to learn. It is up to teachers, parents and the surrounding community to help children learn and grow, both as individuals and as whole groups. Human beings are products of their environment and therefore, respond to the influences around them daily. These influences can be both positive and negative, but either of the two can alter the course of a child's life. I believe in "tough love." Children must be challenged daily to learn and grow to become better students, but must also be held accountable for their actions in order to become better citizens. My goal is for my classroom to be a safe place in which students can be comfortable celebrating their successes but also an environment in which we can work together to persevere through the bumps in the road that will occur.
I firmly believe that one of the most important aspects of a parent/guardian-teacher relationship is communication. If there are ever any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
We will have many wonderful experiences and opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead. My ultimate goal is to help your child grow to reach his or her fullest potential both in and out of the classroom. Again, please feel free to contact me if I can be of service to you and your child. If you need any information about the school, the school website is also a valuable resource.
