## Reflection: Trust and Respect Sensational Smoothies: Metric (Day 2) - Section 4: Closure

Much of the first half of my school year has been establishing a safe, and orderly environment. I have a diverse bunch of learners this year that require me to be very much a "mom" before a "teacher".

I believe that I must show my students the respect that I expect them to also show me. I have seen my students grow leaps and bounds emotionally and then academically. My students need to know that I will provide them with unique learning opportunities, times to be silly, and respect their differences in how they solve problems, the amount of work I give, and so on. I differentiate instruction and tasks by carefully pairing up students, cold calling, think pair share opportunities, and choice boards in which students choose a predetermined number of opportunities based on a larger set.
