Ms. Bailey's teaching philosophy is based on her belief that the teacher sets the tone for the classroom. "I believe that it is the responsibility of the teacher to be a positive role model in everything that he or she does," she said. "The teacher should know the standards that describe what is to be taught, and should then develop learning activities that engage and excite the students about learning. The teacher should know how to differentiate and to recognize and teach to the different learning styles of each student so that all students experience success."
