In the Classroom Demonstrations: Strategic Processing video, Mrs. Leigh-Ann Hildreth third grade class were engaged and excited about the lesson on schema (Walden University, 2014). The learning environment was set-up in a way where students were able to have access to all the tools, materials, and rich print they needed to be academically successful. I noticed Mrs. Hildreth interacted with her students by engaging them in conversation and getting them excited about the activity. This observation has led me to believe Mrs. Hildreth has formed strong relationships with her students as well as created a safe and trusting classroom environment. Mrs.Hildreth believes it is important to get to know your students because they may know topics relevant to the class lessons (Walden University, 2014). Teachers need to develop relationships with students and provide support, but also give them the freedom to explore and be independent(Russel, 2018).
