086: ‘Thoughts for Teachers’ Series: The POWER of the Word ‘Teacher’

Welcome to Episode 86 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. This is the first episode of our SUMMER SERIES! In this series, I will take about 5-7 minutes to focus on a single thought to ponder. My goal is to give you something to reflect on at the end of each episode that you will be able take with you as you enjoy your day. Our first thought of our this series will focus on the POWER that is found in the WORD Teacher, and how YOU have the ability to help define it to the many students you teach each day.

Today’s Reflection:

We have the chance to make kids around the world either walk away, uncomfortable, when they hear the word “Teacher,” or perk up and be filled with joy when it is said.

Be mindful of all the interactions that you have with your students because they are always watching. Do what it takes to make sure that no matter where they may be in the world, their memory of you has impacted them in such a positive way that they are filled with joy when they hear the word “Teacher.”

084: The Empty Classroom

Welcome to Episode 84 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In today’s episode, I talk about the empty classroom that all teachers face on the last day of school, and focus on how powerful standing in that moment can truly be.


Three Points to Ponder When Standing in Your Empty Classroom

An empty classroom at the end of the year represents a chapter in a book our students write. As a teacher, you have helped to write the lines that they will highlight and come back to time and time again.

 

The empty room at the end of the year signifies a job well done. When you leave everything you have in the classroom, and give all you can give, your students will not soon forget your impact.

 

An empty classroom that is packed up and ready to remain silent for a while has one goal: to be filled again very soon. Take the time you need to rest and recharge, so that you can come back ready to fill the lives of your students with a year they will never forget.

Welcome to Episode 82 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In today’s episode, I want to encourage you to take on a Fitting Room Perspective in your teaching and take a moment to reflect on the importance of the little things we do each day as teachers.


Three Key Points of a Fitting Room Perspective

  1. When we pay attention to individual goals, we can bring joy.

  2. When we are honest, we build trust and respect.

  3. When we are willing to patiently wait, we become the support that is often needed the most.

070: The POWER of Patience in a Teacher’s Commute

Welcome to Episode 70 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode I focus on the ‘Teacher’s Commute’ we all share, and encourage you to embrace the journey. By the end, you will be able to reflect on HOW the POWER of Patience can transform the experience you offer to your students each day.


Today’s Episode ‘written preview.’

 

Sometime we face brake lights…

In order to make learning truly meaningful to our students we need to show them that we will not bypass what concerns them in the moment. When we sit in traffic, we know it is only temporary and that eventually we will get to the destination we seek. When our students step on the brakes, we know that we will be able to get them to where they are going, we just may need to pause and slow down in order to make it happen. Teaching in the moment is what will help them get to the future we are trying to prepare them for.

Sometimes we face a ‘delayed’ green light…

When we base our ability and our success on what others are doing, we will always end up either disappointed or judgmental. Neither of which is beneficial.

It is through our patience, our persistence, and our passion that we will impact. Every student is different. Some students will grasp things quicker than others, yet all of them can succeed. Sometimes we simply need to take a moment to delay and wait for the green light. That delay may include collaboration with colleagues, finding new strategies to use, or simply slowing the pace down a bit to reach students. Regardless, it is important to understand that a delay is not a sign of weakness, but rather it is evidence that you are willing to do whatever it takes to make a difference in the lives of those you teach. It is evidence that YOU are an amazing teacher.

Embrace the Power of Patience…

When we are patient and we teach in the moment, we will see things that others don’t see. We will reach our students where they are, which will help prepare them to succeed where they are going.
