• Displaying a positive attitude, smiling, asking them about their lives
• Using students’ backgrounds, talents, interests, perspectives and integrating all of these into the curriculum
• Building self esteem, self realization, and cultural-identity strategies
• Motivate and role model to students a joy of learning
• Empower students to become independent learners and good, responsible decision makers
• Teach cooperation, team play, and fairness
• Model core values
• Make my classroom a place where all questioned will be answered, feelings discussed, thoughts discussed , and new ideas welcomed with open arms
• Have a proficient knowledge of the subject with the ability to explain different topics in different ways
