7 Bad (and Good) Habits of Teachers
Ways to be good, and not so good.
1. To like or not to like
If you are an effective teacher, students will respect. Liking someone USUALLY comes with respecting someone.
2. Yelling-Is it worth it?
If yelling is your go to, is it really worth it? If you yell all the time, no one will take you seriously. Sometimes silence is worth more.
3. Making a mountain out of a molehill
Sit on students early, let up as you go. Positive reinforcements and clear expectations from the very beginning are a must.
4. Life's Unfair
Be consistently consistent. Fair isn't equal and equal isn't always fair.
5. Wait, what are we teaching today??
Teachers become more effective when they plan ahead. Don't have to fight over the copy machine!
6. YOU TALKIN' TO ME?
Offensive is the best defense. Try not to take things personally. Take a breath and be proactive.
7. Nah, I'm good.
If good enough is enough there would be no need for excellence. Effective teachers are always reflective.
