Veteran elementary school teacher Tara Olagaray uses surveys to learn more about her students, then subsequently makes adjustments “in the way information is shared in my classroom to become a more culturally responsive teacher.”
“As I administer the survey, I assure students that their answers are confidential,” she writes for Edutopia. “I let my students know that I heard them without singling out any one particular response. I thank them for completing the survey and let them know I’ll use the answers to make sure our classroom is a place where each of them can feel comfortable and learn well.”
