We, the teachers of the Title I Teacher Support Network share a similar philosophy and positive attitude about our teaching profession. We are proud of our noble profession and our choice to teach in a high(er) poverty school. Regardless of the demographics of the school that we teach in, we love the challenge of teaching students of varying ability levels, culture, personality and race. We focus on teaching to their areas of challenge rather than just assessing them. We teach each child… respecting their individuality and always looking for and identifying their strengths. We also acknowledge that our decision to teach in a Title I school can be challenging. More often than not, we are expected to address more challenges with fewer resources. For this reason we further acknowledge that our effectiveness is based on our strength of mind and positive attitude. We have identified five principles that will help us to develop this strength of mind. Please click on each link to read more.
