Seriously time really flies! I can’t believe we’ve been in school for a month already. So here’s how my year looks like so far….
A lot of work, a lot of technology, and a lot of differentiated instruction. You can say that this year I have all kinds of students. The students who want to be challenged, the early finishers, low achievers, slow students, hyper active students, talkative ones, perfectionists, and the quiet ones . I did have different kinds of students in my teaching years but it was never this diversified. It is kind of fun and challenging for me as a teacher because I am the kind of teacher who wants to make a difference in every one of my students’ lives. I want to make learning fun and I never want them to think of studying as a punishment. So far, I can proudly say that I have achieved in fulfilling this kind of challenge over my years of teaching.
This is my message to the new teachers: Don’t lose it! I mean it! Children are so easy to handle. Motivate them, be fun, always use positive phrases and reinforcement, be patient, loving and caring, show them that you are there for them, give every child your attention, do not label students, do not talk about the students with other teachers in front of them, and a sense of humor every now and then would add an extra touch. I believe that every student has a gift. You can notice that gift in some students immediately and some will take a while. You have to be patient! Nothing is more beautiful than the children’s world!
