Thank you for this post! I love the fact that we will be able to interact with others via chat on Twitter! This is a great idea to tell and share any ideas, questions or concerns. The provided resources will definitely be a great help for me once I become the teacher of my own classroom.

Teacher, Writer, and Artist

I taught a workshop one time

I taught a workshop one time at a statewide conference of independent school teachers on how to be a successful teacher your rookie year and I told them that you don’t really have to love kids to be a great teacher … you just have to understand them. All the teachers in the room agreed with me. That was a real nice moment. I couldn’t believe I had actually hit on some remarkable, agreed-upon truth in a profession I was real green at. One woman was asleep, so I’ll never really know if she agreed or not.

Being fascinated helps, too. If you’re a teacher and you’re genuinely fascinated with children, teenagers, and young people and what they say and do and how they interact with you and each other, then you’ll always have fun at work, every day. This is why some people teach until they croak and why most policemen police for a long time, too.
