  •  I expect my classroom and those who enter it to (4+ / 0-)

    be as Earth conscious as possible.

     We are as paper less as possible, except when paper is absolutely needed to learn.  We use modern manipulatives that are reuseable whenever possible. I ask that my students recycle and use topics of debate that focus on the need to live a life that is full of effort to protect Earth.  We study the effects of neglect and how change can happen. I praise those who go the extra mile to make a difference.  I show those who do not the error of their ways.  I insist on a classroom that is full of fact and not fallacy.

    I call myself a "Green Teacher"....both when I taught elementary and now as a Professor.  I hope that phrase "I am a Green Teacher"  goes viral one day....it would be a honorable endeavor for educators to try to make their classrooms the first step in a child's future life as an Earth protector. :)
