The Stuff I Should be Doing

11 Apr

I often review during holidays how I can do better. Here are a few things should always remind myself to do.

  1. Talking to students about their interests and life outside of school.

Students who are able to connect with teachers on a personal level are more likely to be successful in school. Help build this connection with students by interacting with them about their interests outside of school.

  1. A few more dedicated minutes of thoughtful reflection on what was accomplished today and what could be improved for tomorrow.

How can instruction improve without reflecting on the positive and negatives of each day? This requires an honest self-assessment that will guide future instruction. Have the courage to admit when you didn’t get it right or do your best in order to make the next day better.

  1. Saying “thank you” to a member of the support staff.

The staff at my place are awesome. The support staff even more so. However, they are most likely taken for granted every day. Thank them, and let them know you notice their dedication to the school.

  1. Thank You Again.

Students deserve daily praise, but teachers deserve just as much. It’s easy to take a teacher’s dedication for granted, but a bit of encouragement might actually re-energize a teacher in a moment of need.
