well. I believe she used the firm, fair, and consistent approach and for the two years I was in her classroom there was never any major disturbances. 5. Emotionally Safe Environment To create an emotionally safe classroom, I will begin by being a role model. I will treat each student with respect, avoid sarcasm or harsh words, and be nonjudgmental. I will also inform my students that any kind of teasing, threats, or bullying will never be tolerated. I will teach conflict resolution and encourage students to praise each other for their hard work (Creating and Emotionally Safe Classroom). If a student were to become emotional, I would remain calm and collected and ask the student to please step outside using the broken record technique, if needed. I would then arrange to speak with the student privately to discuss as to what the issue was and how we could best resolve the conflict (Savage & Savage, 2010). If a conflict were to turn into a physical fight, I would immediately ask another student to call the office for help. I would then move bystanders away from the fight, even outside if necessary, and move in as close as possible to the problem with risking harm to myself to hopefully defuse the situation with my presence. If not, I will make every attempt to separate the students fighting with repeated verbal commands while protecting myself and the other children until help arrives (Savage & Savage, 2010).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
