At a Teachers Desk; Mr. McClung:
He talks about how to read the crowd and focus on your audience. Teachers should focus on students vs. worrying about how being judged by your colleagues or superior. Teacher should be flexible he says, "No lesson is ever perfect. The lesson you teach and the one you plan are always different". Educators should be open minded to change. This can also go along with everyday life circumstances. Remember to stay clam and everything work out.
Next he talks about communication, this is the glue that holds everything together. Without communication things would chaotic. We should use communcation to build trust and friendships with fellow teachers. Teachers should "Be Reasonable", because no student is perfect. If a students does not surpass your expectations, then take the time to work with them a little more. I would love to incorporate all the useful teaching tools I've learned in EDM310. We should always want to learn more and want to stay LIFE LONG LEARNERS. Never be content with the little information you are shown, always push forward and learn more. Mr. McClung's 1st year blog will help me to be patient, kind and understanding and in turn will help me be more successful as a teacher. The advantage to reading his blog i,s that I may have less of a chance getting blindsided.
