Teacher Tip Number 20: Let It Go

Pick your battles. Sometimes it’s better to let minor transgressions go by turning a blind eye. If students are doing something, or if they’re upset, and it’s something small that won’t affect the class, just let it go. Turn a blind eye and continue, because you don’t want to make a major issue by focusing on every slight mistake they make. Students get emotional and they make mistakes – just let it slide if that is in the best interest of the class or for the continuity of the lesson.

Listen, we’ve all made mistakes as students sometimes you know they can say something they don’t mean in the heat of an argument sometimes it’s just better to let it go remember we’re all human so it’s better sometimes not to attack them for every small transgression.

Teacher Tip Number 21: Don’t Shout!

Only shout in an absolutely extreme situation. When you’re in class you should never shout; rather speak in a louder voice if you must, but once you’ve shouted you’ve lost it, because it will show the students that you need to raise your voice. And the next time you will need to raise your voice louder, and louder and louder. It’s going to have the effect that you need to go louder every time. So, at most speak loudly. You want to save that yell for an emergency situation in your class.

Speak loudly, speak clearly but never shout at students because that will also reflect badly on you if other teachers and other students see you shouting at your students. By never shouting at students, you will also show them that you have respect for them and you will also serve as a role model.

They will see that shouting is not okay in your classroom because you aren’t doing it. Then they too can’t shout in your classroom either.

Teacher Tip Number 22: Teacher Calendar

Have your calendar well planned out and easy to access. Be clear on the event schedule, include all school activities, sport and extra murals. Learners will look to you to know what is happening. Students are young and they need information from you as the teacher.

You should be able to easily access it, so have a calendar with all the important events and also have schedules available to quickly check what is next, because you will be asked often. So, I would say have it around your class some of the important calendars and schedules and also in file so that you can take it out and know exactly where everything is I think the most important thing for teachers when it comes to admin is to be well prepared you can never be too well prepared to be a teacher.

Teacher Tip Number 23: Connect With Learners

Greet your students at the door and build relationships with them. The best teachers we had when we were young were the ones that we formed a really good relationship with. That remains the same for today. When you meet your students outside, say hello and ask questions about them. Take an interest in their lives, get to know them, because the more connections you create with them, the more comfortable they’ll feel with you and will trust you more. I think love is so important between a teacher and their students and you can show it by asking them questions and getting to know them.
