Ralph Waldo Emerson is credited for saying “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.” In this Two Minute Timeout for Teachers, I want to encourage you to be intentional with your actions, and realize that your students are always watching. Remember, we often impact our students more with what we don’t say, than with what we do.
Welcome to Episode 33 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode I focus on the 5 stages of a ‘Teachers Marathon’ that we all go through, and show you that YOU are an amazing teacher that has what it takes to finish the race.
We have all heard teaching is a marathon, not a sprint. As a teacher, YOU are a CHAMPION. You have been running a race all year, and now it is time to finish strong. Your students are counting on you to lead them well and the finish line is just around the corner. Listen to this episode and print this poster to hang as an encouragement to be the best you can be all the way through till the last bell.
Simon Sinek once said, “We’d achieve more if we chased our dreams instead of our competition.” In this Two Minute Timeout for Teachers, I want to encourage you to embrace the unique qualities that YOU bring to your students. Remember, nobody brings exactly what YOU do into your classroom!
Detours can be frustrating, especially if we are in a hurry to get to our destination.
When we come across these detours, however, we all have a ‘mindset moment’ that can change everything. We can either allow the anger and frustration to overwhelm us, or we can look at the detour as an adventure instead of a roadblock. Sometimes by getting off of the highway and taking the scenic route, we see the beauty in the journey that we never would have otherwise noticed.
Welcome to Episode 32 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In today’s episode I talk about the phenomenon of the LulaRoe clothing business, and three key elements from their success that Teachers can take away and implement into their teaching right away.
By making a practice of instilling these three key elements into your teaching, you will be able to make your classrooms better and have your impact on students be even more powerful.
Mark Twain once said “If you have no time to rest, it is exactly the right time.” In this Two Minute Timeout for Teachers I want to encourage you to take time for YOU this week. Remember how important it is to rest in order to recharge and be the best you can possibly be each day.
Imagine if teachers had the ability to hear everything that students said during a school day. If the hallways could talk, oh the things they would say!
Over the years, I’ve overheard things in the hallways that would make most people blush, while at the same time, there have been stories that would break your heart. There are so many insights we could take away from the hidden truths found within the halls of our schools. If we listen close enough, I think what we hear can transform our thinking and help us have an even greater impact in the long run.
Welcome to Episode 31 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode I talk about Teachers in Traffic and how sometimes it is so important to slow down to reflect on your ‘WHY.’
In today’s episode, I talk about ‘Teachers in Traffic’ and the different types of personalities you may encounter while sitting in gridlock. This episode, however, is one that is geared not only to teachers, but to people in all walks of life. Although we all may handle being stuck differently, there is ONE KEY lesson we can take away from life’s traffic regardless of how long the jam may be.
Alan Kay said “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” In this Two Minute Timeout for Teachers I want to encourage you to take the time to be innovative in your teaching, and never allow the doubts of others to become your beliefs.
There are so many lessons to be learned through literature. Little hidden gems of wisdom can be found in so many of the stories we love and cherish.
Sometimes when we read, however, these little nuggets of knowledge can pass us by without warning. If we take the time to slow down and take in the message found inside the pages, we can really learn a lot from the stories we read over time.
