A new year is about commencing new opportunities. Many professionals would be welcoming the new year with personal resolutions. Teachers can also do the same.
No to procrastination this year
As a teacher, you must complete all your teaching assignments as per schedule. If you tend to delay and always miss the deadline in completing a job, then you tend to procrastinate. It is not a healthy habit. Pushing responsibilities does not enable effective classroom management and does not support a robust learning environment. Promise to create a lesson plan and act on your plans every day. This way, you would enjoy your role as you teach and ensure students learn more effectively.
Being innovative as a teacher
If students look at learning as a fixed cycle, then they lose the excitement and inquisitiveness about learning new things. You can bring a positive change in the life of your students by being innovative in your teaching. Your lesson plan would have to be in line with the syllabus. But, this resolution will help you in creating a positive environment.
Building your network
Networking or effective communication is a crucial skill every teacher has to learn. It is easy to communicate with your colleagues and other stakeholders in the field of education. At the same time, talking to a new batch of students would not be secure. Your networking abilities would help you. From professional to personal life, networking skills enable you to understand others and communicate effectively. This resolution would ignite your career. You can begin by talking to people who are not in your immediate circle of friends and build a network with colleagues from different classes/branches.
Save and invest money.
With enough savings and investment opportunities available, every teacher must start improving the knowledge of finance and practice investments. A determined mindset is required to avoid wasting money.
Being a mentor
A mentor is someone who has skills to support students in achieving their goals as a student. Students seek guidance from a mentor. Hence, promise yourself that you will mentor your students in your classroom so that they achieve success in their professional life.
Providing real-world experience
No matter how useful is an educational program, nothing can prepare students for real-life scenarios. Real-world issues and challenges make a student professionally. Hence, please encourage students to join internships that align with their career goals.
Interactive classroom session
Your classroom must be interactive. Encourage your students to ask questions and develop an analytical mindset. Students are afraid to ask questions because of the fear of being ridiculed. Nurture your students to build a positive mindset.
