That elusive 100 % effort in everything you do!
Imagine a world where everyone put out 100% effort 100% of the time! It is exhausting just thinking about it. Unrealistic to expect that! When will /should a person put out 100%? When it matters to them personally; when someone else is depending on them; when they are being judged; when they voluntarily took on a task; when they want to impress themselves or others. Looks like this list covers most of the time! It's a worthy target - 100% effort. Pacing yourself is also important and so is being realistic about the payback for such an effort. Will a 150% effort give you enough payback to be worth it? Or is 100% effort 100% of the time enough? Food for thought as you start a new project.
What is your philosophy of education? Write it down.
Write down your personal philosophy of education. The master teachers in education have the ability to articulate their personal philosophy of education and know exactly what their ideal classroom should look like. Include positive statements not negative ones in your description. Don’t include what you don’t believe! Take your time writing it down. It may take months to get it “right”. Revise when needed. Read it often at the beginning. Share it with others. Do absolutely nothing in your teaching which doesn’t fit into your established philosophy. Your philosophy is the ‘big picture’ that allows you to deal with the day to day teaching-learning process without getting sidetracked. It keeps life simple.
