What do you believe are the five most important attributes of an effective teacher?
3. eagerness to keep learning
4. genuineness (is that a word?)
good handle on classroom mgt
inherent respect for every person, no matter how small
one more - ability to be spontaneous
Professionalism is not:
losing your temper
playing on the computer while your kids do worksheets
acting like a teenager when you are in charge of teenagers
having control of your group
being willing and/or able to communicate with difficult people
deciding not to take things personally,
even when they are intended personally
treating people with respect even if you don't feel like it
being pleasant even if you have PMS
being prepared for your job
Hmm . . . sounds like professionalism means act like a grown up with a college degree and some class, and unprofessionalism means act like a spoiled kid who isn't yet ready to be in the grown up world. And this includes the speech you use - that is included in my definition of behaving with class.
Commitment to professionalism
Sense of Humor
Good Explaining Skills
Numchuck Skills (ha ha just kidding)
numchuck skills could come in handy!
or riot control!
Well said bonneb!
just 5 is hard but I'd go with...
2. Sense of Humor
3. Organizational skills
5. Creativity / flexibility (in lessons & dealing with students)
I think if you have those they help you not only with developing effective lessons, but developing relationships with your students that will help classroom management!
I wonder how much trouble I could get in for stashin' a pair of numchucks in my desk drawer...
especially since I am lacking in the numchuck skills area.
I would promise to only pull them out if defending myself during a riot!
yee-haw! Love livin' in Texas!!!
I believe it's nunchuks... not numchucks
Thank you! It was beginning to bother me.
And technically, it's nunchaku, and you're probably more likely to hurt yourself with them than anyone else. Might as well control the class with a boomerang
3. Acting ability
1) A TRUE desire to teach (not just get the paycheck and benefits)
1. Incredible Sense of Humor!!!
2. Tolerance for Silly Parents
3. Understanding that children can't help who they are born to.
4. Flexibility to be teacher, mother, psychiatrist, psychologist, referree, nurse, friend, etc...
and that is exactly why its hilarious!!!:2up::thanks:
Ok, so my only exposure to the n**chucks was through Napoleon Dynamite . . .
Hey, it is that time of year to get out the old Nap-o-le-on.
Feed your Llama!!!! What was her name?
3. Good sense of humor
5. Leadership skills
