3 The Importance of Safety
This article was a great reminder that no matter what situation we are in as teachers, we should always consider our student’s safety first. As teacher’s we should always prepare ahead of each lesson for any potential safety hazards. It is our obligation as teachers to choose wisely when planning any type of lesson or experiment. If at any time we find that our student’s safety may be at risk, then this lesson should be revised with those issues in mind, or an alternate experiment should be prepared in its place.
