The Wonders Of Teaching
I've been teaching for about 33 years now. There is no question that teaching is incredibly demanding, exhausting and at times, demoralising. I am writing and sharing this blog to encourage readers to remain positive about teaching.
There's a lot I love about being a teacher. Teaching is one of those rare professions that keeps your brain young, allowing you to continue your own journey as a student and a lifelong learner. We as educators speak often about creating lifelong learners, but if we aren't buying into it ourselves, then our students don't stand a chance.
Michelle Pfeiffer once said that being an actor allows her, with every new character, to learn something new, immersing herself in a distinct universe with each project. Being a teacher is that and so much more.
We can’t do it all, and we will need help; but what we can do, is that we must love child.
And now, technology provides numerous tools that teachers can use in and out of the classroom to enhance student learning. So..stand up, change yourself from the old traditional teacher to a super teacher with many wonders.
