Week 11 – Rules for Teaching

My second year as a supply teacher is coming up, and with it a mix of feelings. I know I am stronger, smarter, capable of more than I was last year.

I’ve been extremely fortunate to have had a couple of empowering and motivating conversations with friends and family about this.  I was on the subway thinking about the direction my life is taking (a positive one) and I thought of some very simple rules I could follow in the upcoming year.  Rules that have nothing to do with “knowing” anything, or doing the right thing, but guidelines for taking it in stride.

Rules For Teaching

  1. Take it one day at a time.
  2. Forgive yourself.
  3. Don’t teach imaginary classrooms.
  4. Remember past victories.
  5. Be strong for your loved ones.
