What I Have learned This Year 2009.
Mr. McClung was a fresh new teacher. He arrived in Noel , Missouri. He learned a lot the first year of teaching. He learned to read the crowd and find out what your students understand, make sure your being clear to your students. You also have to be flexible. Don’t be to controlling over everything. If something goes wrong just go with it. Make sure you have good communication. Be a reasonable teacher. Remember that not all students are perfect and you have to stay encouraging. Use technology in the classroom. This could be very helpful for visuals for a class. Be there for your student and care about them. In some cases you might be the only person that will listen to them. It’s never too late to change how you do something. You can always change something to adjust it to a class. These things that he learned are important for all teachers. You have to learn to evaluate yourself to make your class the best it can be for your students.
What I Have Learned This Year for the Year 2010.
Mr McClung did a post on what he had learned. He used to teach science but he moved to a new school where he had to teach social studies and step out of his comfort zone. He decided to make social studies more relevant like he did in his science classes before. He leaned to be more relaxed with his planning. He taught his students to think on their own and to have their own decision. He learned a few tricks for being at a new school. One of them is to find a mom. Find a mom that knows how things run. They can tell you the normal ways to do things. You don’t want to mess up the normal routines. He also says that you have to leave you ego. You have to act excited about a topic and sometimes even act silly to show the student that you are passionate about the topic. I remember when I was in high school when the teacher was excited about it you got excited about it too. You also can’t be a control freak. Let the student help out in the class room. Give them easy jobs .No matter how bad things get you have to remember what is best for the students. They are the most important thing and the reason you are a teacher. I think these tips are very useful for any class room. He learned some very important things that I will for sure be using in my classroom.
