  • I believe what the key elements of a strong classroom culture is to establish a safe learning environment for you students. In order for students to be able to learn, they have to feel safe within the classroom. They have to feel like they are thought about by the teacher as the teacher has to show and express interest in our students lives so we can start to build a strong relationship with each and every student.
