Abstract

For teacher who is seeking to implement modern educational goals, it is important to create prosperity educational and learning environments, which were not relevant to the traditional paradigm. The learning environment is one of the most important factors influencing the successful formation of student self-esteem, their self – expression and creative autonomy. The concept of learning environment includes - the school’s tradition, domestic regulations, pupil and teacher relationship, the psychological climate, school management and teacher’s work style. It is typical for the autocratic teacher work style to stereotype and depersonalise the pupils, this weakens the students’ self-esteem. Meanwhile, the democratic procedure, learner’s participation in decision making, respectful relationship, honesty and self-discipline promotes learner’s self-confidence and enhances self-esteem. Well organised learning environment is a good atmosphere to motivate pupils and encourages them to become a proactive, independent and responsible person.
