The primary role of the classroom teacher is to maximize student learning and
development through the curriculum’s planning, preparation, and teaching to
meet students' individual learning needs and achieve specific student outcomes.

engages in critical reflection to improve their knowledge and skills to engage
students better and improve their learning.
