I believe that the responsibility for students’ learning rests squarely with the teacher.

Effective teaching requires that teachers have high expectations for all students and are responsive to students' background experiences, educational needs, and interests. Learning to teach is a lifelong process; being an effective, engaging teacher requires continuous learning and improvement.
