062: The Impact of YOUR Teaching Shadow

Welcome to Episode 62 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode I talk about the impact of your Teaching Shadow, and how positioning yourself correctly can help you grow.


The Impact of YOUR Teaching Shadow

Where does YOUR shadow lie?

Teaching on the Island of Misfit Toys

Watching the 1964 TV special Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is a Christmas tradition for many people around the world.

It is the story of a young red-nosed reindeer who is bullied for being different. He teams up with a toy-making elf who wants to be a dentist, and they set out on an adventure to find a place that will accept them. On their journey, they discover an island of misfit toys that have been tossed aside due to the slight ‘defects’ they possess. Unwanted and rejected, the toys live in sadness on the island waiting for the day that someone will want them as their own. Rudolph and Hermey (the elf dentist) understand the plight of the toys and promise to return and save them all. In the end, Rudolph learns that greatness can be achieved by anyone, even those that are least expected to succeed, and he saves the day by finding a home for each misfit toy.

Watching it now as a teacher reminds me of the importance of creating a home for the students we teach who feel as though they are misfits.

Teach FIT: How ‘In Shape’ are YOU as a Teacher?

The most successful people in the world are FIT.  They have the ability to Focus, take Initiative, and be Tenacious in order to accomplish their goals.  People who have a FIT mentality will rise above the rest.

When it comes to teaching, this same rule applies.  If you want to lead your students down a successful path, you must be able to focus on a plan, take the initiative to move things forward, and be tenacious in living out your purpose. 

In order to be an unforgettable teacher and to rise above the obstacles you face daily, you must take the time to get FIT.
