Thank you for your interest in your continuous learning! You came to the right place!
It may sound like an oxymoron: please take 3 minutes to take this Teacher Test:
1. A child comes in the classroom and beats herself up because she doesn’t like the way she looks. How do you react:
a) You say: “Stop. You’re beautiful. Now get your goal sheet out for today and get started.”
b) You say: “You’re beautiful.”
c) You say: “What makes you feel this way?”
2. A child tells another child that he’s stupid and that he can’t do this lesson. How do you respond:
a) You hear what started the conversation and assist them to kindly work it out to the benefit of both.
b) You sit both children apart from each other and they can’t talk to each other for the rest of the day.
c) You acknowledge and leave it at that.
3. A student communicates with you disrespectfully. How do you respond:
a) You send the student immediately to the principal.
b) You take time to listen to the child on what’s truly going on
c) You raise your voice to make sure the child understands who the boss is in the classroom.
4. A student doesn’t get a skill or concept the fourthhundredthirtyseventh time presented. How do you react:
a) Your voice is raised and you drill the same thing over and over into the students
b) You say: “I will introduce you to this lesson some other time.”
c) You change state with the child in a kind voice as you stretch and listen to the child.
Now that you have the best tool to be that higher elevated leader that’s already living inside of you, why not get started and put your plan into action?
Remember: Thoughts lead to Feelings and your Feelings lead to Actions! Now you need a person that you can strategize your actions to achieve your goals with your students. It’s about that one element: communication! It all starts with YOU! The person that you are surrounding yourself with and lift you up to become that authentic and true YOU will make all the difference!
All you need to do now is schedule your first coaching session to become aware of what you are not aware of yet.
I am eager to hear from you and how I may be of value and service as you move forward to make an even greater difference in your student’s and children’s lives!
