Being a teacher is like good wine. The more experience accumulates, the more maturity and wisdom come to give a beautiful color to this human adventure! Discover 6 tips that an experienced teacher gives to young people in the profession.

Sharon davison teaches kindergarten at a school in Vermont. We can follow her via her blog or his twitter account class. She participated in the project Diverse Teacher Voice, set up by the team of the renowned blog TeachThought. This project aims to help various teachers to share their ideas, experiences and innovative practices for the benefit of everyone. As part of her participation, Ms. Davison chose to send a letter to herself while she was in her first year of teaching. In this letter, she shares 6 pearls of wisdom.

 

1) Listening

According to her, it is possible to make a difference in young people when you have empathy and perseverance. It is also very important to take the time to listen and be patient. Students need us to be flexible in order to meet their needs.

 

2) Be passionate, and express it

Celebrate the learning that is happening inside and outside your classroom. It is important to express this passion and joy of learning. The students will be inspired by it.

 

3) Surround yourself with inspiring people who challenge your way of thinking

Being a teacher does not mean that you stop learning, far from it. Through the ideas of others, you develop your own inspiration and have the opportunity to make a difference. (Are you depressed by your entourage? Create one that suits you via Twitter, for example!)

 

4) stay connected

Develop your personal learning network (RPA). It is simply essential. Join online communities to find inspiration, support, but also collaboration opportunities.

 

5) Be transparent

Sharing is important and increasingly easy with the Internet. It is important to be a role model to inspire your students to make a difference. The Internet makes it possible to connect and share globally. This reality is becoming easier and easier thanks to initiatives like the platform I share.

 

6) be well

The well-being of the mind and the body gives stability, strength, endurance and patience. It is important to exercise, eat well, but also to follow your passions to have a healthy mind and body. This energy is contagious for your students! 🙂
