Teaching is not the mere profession of delivering lecture in a 40-45 minute session and expecting the students to absorb everything anymore, rather the trend of modernized classrooms have enhanced the role of teachers even further.
Every teacher dreams of getting his or her students to memorize all the academic standards in order to conduct a flawless learning session. Some might even go to great lengths of spending extended hours in the school or at home to devise the perfect lesson plans, assessments, group-based activities, and other learning aspects that will enable the student to master all the subject knowledge and score the best grade in the finals. The real problem in the fact that: today hard work is no longer effective and result-oriented as it used to be.
For this discussion, we are going to dive in the reasons why hard work is not required anymore, rather talk more about how to work smarter if the teacher is to obtain lucrative results in terms of learning.
1.Stop complaining your weaknesses
Agreeably, no one is perfect, even the best and smartest in the business are prone to certain weaknesses. But what separates them from the rest is that they do not go on complaining on their shortcomings, rather focus more on the strengths and how to overcome the gaps.
Consider you have trouble adjusting to changing classroom management culture in the next school you have just been hired at. However, at the same time you must be strongly disciplined, self-motivated, risk-taker, or possessing any other quality that might be the solution to your weakness. The point is, focus of nourishing your strengths and using them to instill the learning environment you want in the classroom.
2.There are time when you need to say ‘no’
Understandably, a teacher is mounted with a plethora of responsibilities in a workday, and these are beside the lectures in the classrooms. But similar to other professions, there are times when you feel too stressed or burned out to accept any more responsibilities on an already overflowing desk.
This is where teachers should learn to say ‘no’. Doesn’t matter if a student is walking into the staffroom after a 1.5 hours grueling session of Calculus to discuss his or her next assignment, or the management asking you to take the extra of a teacher who has left on emergency basis, there is nothing more than protecting your both physical and mental health.
3.Keep inspiration at optimum levels at all times
Consider the example of a professional assignment writing company, the prime job of academic writers employed there is to provide writing masterpieces all year round. And the best thing, they rarely fail in keeping up to the expectations of the client/student.
Therefore, it has become a must to keep your brain revitalized, motivated and inspired if you’re to enjoy success in modernized classrooms. Remember, the gameplay is to play smart and strong, and not become the Hulk in Marvel to do all the dirty work relentlessly.
