Teaching Tip: Realities of Teaching
Like any profession, teaching has its share of joys and frustrations. Here are some of the frustrating realities all teachers face. Don`t let them get you down; accept them as part of the job and keep doing your best.
- Not all of your students will like you. Nor will you like all of your students.
- Not all of your students will be interested in what you say or do in class.
- Some lessons will simply fall flat.
- You cannot always be creative.
- You will make mistakes.
When you experience one of these realities, don`t fall into the trap of thinking you`re the only teacher who does. All teachers do at some time or another.
