Hi Everyone, I am Ashley Graham. I am an Elementary Education Major at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I can be contacted at email@example.com. I am very excited about this project! I hope you are as well. Just to let you know a little about myself, I have traveled outside of the USA a few times. A few of my favorite places would be England, Holland, France, Belgium and Spain. Unfortunatly, my experience in Germany was limited to the airport. I hope to visit again soon! It will be a pleasure to work with everyone! Good luck!
WHAT I KNOW
WHAT I WANT TO KNOW
WHAT I LEARNED
I know that teachers DO have an emotional influence on first graders. An emotional influence that I believe is very important in the development of the child.
What triggers the emotional influence between the child and the teacher?
How long after the school year beings does the student realize their emotional attachement with their teacher( I am sure this varies of course)?
Does every first grade teacher have an emotional influence on all of their students?
I have learned that criticism can be either very helpful or detrimental on a student. In order for a teacher to get their point across to a student they must remember that POSITIVE criticism is the only way to go.
