3 Common Teacher/Student Relationship Misconceptions

It Just Doesn’t Matter

There is enough to deal with inside the classroom. Don’t get distracted by all the noise outside your four walls.

Put a Little Love in Your Heart

What is the best way to leave school with a smile on your face?

Be Open

“Education is cyclical, the same professional development always comes around again.” “Don’t worry about this initiative, there will be a new one next year.” “The person who came up with this policy will only be here another 6 months, let’s just ride it out.” If you work in education, you have either heard or spoken one of the above statements. Sometimes it is easy to get caught in the negative talk. However, when you approach everything from the perspective that it won’t last or it won’t work, you will never grow.

Coping with Failure

If you have a growth mindset, you know that failure is part of the learning process. That does not make it any easier to deal with, however. It is critical to not let setbacks impede your progress.

There is No End Zone

The very thing that makes education so challenging makes it so rewarding. You never complete a project, close a sale, or finalize a build. Teaching is never ending. That might sound ominous, but it is the constant struggle that forces educators to grow, making each victory a little sweeter…even if there is no time to stop and enjoy it.

Teacher Confidence

Teaching is a profession, a craft, and an art. Have confidence in yourself and your abilities.

Strictly Business

With relationship building at the heart of any great educator, how is it possible to not take it personal?

Groundhog Day

Students will push your buttons, get on your last nerves, and ruin your day. But each morning you must wipe the slate clean to provide every child with a fresh start.
