Coffee at the end of the Term

At the end of the term I caught up with a few friends, all of whom are teachers, and we talked of the top priorities for us as teachers. Specifically, classroom teachers. I quickly took out a pen, yes a pen, and wrote down some of these thoughts.

These five teachers agreed on these five important factors.

  • Student well-being (“taking care of kids comes first”)
  • Lesson planning (this is a must for classroom management and student engagement)
  • Parent contact when issues arise (within 24 hrs if possible)
  • Professional Development. Stuff that will change the way we teach and effect student achievement.
  • Accurate Marking (this was more about formative assessment).

 

This was an interesting conversation. What do you see as important?
