To be an Effective Teacher

Last week, I had the pleasure of observing Dr. Alby [my cohort leader] and Ms. Schipani. While “circulating the classroom,” I saw the following words of wisdom posted on the wall next to Ms. Schipani’s desk and was in awe. I also hope to take this with me into my classroom.

To be an Effective Teacher:

  • Take care of myself and my needs: get enough sleep and rest; eat well; pause pray, and meditate; take breaks.
  • Don’t try to do it all. It’s okay to only do a little bit at times.
  • Remember I am no longer running the show.
  • Ask for the next thought or action-“Thy will be done.”
  • Show students I care. This is more important than great lesson planning.
