What is your advice about? Being a teacher
1: Be a learner – always. Constantly re-visit learning so you don’t lose what it feels like to learn something new; this will ensure you remain connected to your learners.
2: Build leaning relationships with your learners however you can and work at maintaining these relationships.
3: Smile. No matter what is going on in your life (personal or professional), if you don’t smile you are not approachable.
4: Learn to switch off. You don’t have to carry your safety blanket (marking and prep) home with you every night, so leave it at school occasionally.
5: Insist you get “feedforward” and not feedback from your colleagues. See the article: http://wp.me/p2LphS-p9
