Stop Look Listen

The problem with a lot of teachers is they are convinced they are excellent teachers… they never stop and think… they blame their students for their poor results yet never ask their students what they think… there are also teacher who assault their students for bad work…
Students complaining about those teachers abound… and yet their teachers just think they are perfect… most teachers in fact lecture and never teach… some claim to coach yet don’t know anything about coaching…
I’ve met, heard and seen them all… complain about the arrogance of their students ignoring their own arrogance…

Teaching doesn’t come naturally nor easy… and teachers need bear in mind that we all live and learn every day… or should…
If asked I would recommend those teachers to come to their senses… teaching is best done when partnering with students… take the horse to the water and he will drink…
For those teachers who wish to improve and further the reach of the teaching there are seminars and workshops… and I organise a lot of them… it is hard to stay in one’s corner when one feels stranded… and help is always appreciated…

What’s more, teaching can be fun and make for fun learning and motivating for the students… teaching young children for 8 years has really shown me a turnaround as to what makes students come alive and join in the fun… children also teaching to ring the changes regularly not be stuck in a teacher’s rut… new material of course and new activities… there’s nothing that kills the class more than the droning sound of a teacher lecturing and carrying a message of total boredom over to his or her students…
