So I have been formulating my first, “real” post on this blog for days. I can’t get over writing this first post – I keep thinking “I have to make it catchy or creative or intellectual.” But forget that!! I am just going to write. And to my good fortune, today I stumbled across a guest post on one of my favorite blogs that encompasses some of my current sentiments.
“Be firm, fair, and consistent.”
I have a student teacher this semester. This is a wonderful opportunity for learning and growth for both mentor and protege…..As an mentor teacher, I need to set the best example possible. Tammy’s straightforward statement above is a motto I must remember to live by, not only as a teacher, but as a human! This reminds me of how fortunate I am to be an educator!
Regardless of the subject we teach, us teachers are a blessed group…we have the great privilege and responsibilty to guide, educate, provide a structured environment where the best learning can take place.
