Would you like to have yourself as a teacher? I know we all try to be the type of teacher we would like to have, but are there things you do as a teacher that you would not have liked as a student? I think for the most part, I am the type of teacher that I would like to have. One thing I do that I would not have liked too much as a student is cold calling (calling on kids who don't raise their hands). In the beginning, I did not do that, but I quickly found that if I only take volunteers, I am only talking to 4-5 students. I do try to only call on kids that I'm pretty sure know the answer (and try to call on weaker students for the "easy" questions). Anyway, I'm not trying to debate that particular strategy, but I am asking if you do things that you would not have liked as a student?
