Have you ever felt that you’re just not up to par with all those teachers on social media?They seem to always be doing everything right and are picture perfect?
Not all is what it seems.
I’ve been teaching for 8 years and I still would not consider myself a perfect teacher. Sometimes I teach at my seat. Sometimes I am late picking up my students from lunch.
Today I’m sharing with you 4 big mistakes I’ve made as a teacher, and what I’ve learned from these mistakes. I always strive to be my best and these are some mistakes that I’ve really grown from as an educator and has shaped how I teach today.
In this episode, you will learn:
- Why working smarter and not harder is the best course of action as a teacher
- How to not worry about (or fight) the little things with your students
- Not to take things too personally (and what to do instead)
- Ways to put yourself first as a teacher
Embrace the fact that mistakes will be made as a teacher. It’s all part of the process of being your best teacher self. And don’t compare to what you see on social media, friend. It’s not worth the energy.
