7. A substitute teacher may enter his name on the list of substitutes attached to his attendance sheet. Even if we think of the rules of school or kindergarten or preschool (preschool), these are usually rules that are set for the children and not for the teacher. So I want to turn the tide. Here are 10 rules for educators. “We removed all hand sanitizer at school because it is flammable,” says one teacher. “I pointed out that all paper is like that and a very good reason not to allow students to have games!” Elementary classrooms can become better learning environments when teachers have rules, classroom management skills, and the belief that every child can succeed. Rules help create a predictable atmosphere that limits disruption in the classroom and encourages children to exercise self-control. Children must be taught that it is their responsibility to make appropriate decisions and that they will be held accountable for their actions.
All children need an adjustment period when school starts in the fall, but how long should it last? In one school, “teachers cannot write or suspend disciplinary recommendations until Christmas. Therefore, on Halloween, it is the students who run the school, not the staff. So much for behaviours that have consequences. Find time to decompress outside of school. Every teacher must have hobbies and interests that allow them to distance themselves from the stress of school. Teaching can take up a big part of your life, but it shouldn`t be all you do. As teachers, we travel a lot with the children. And the more experience we gain over the years, especially open and respectful educators, the more their phronesis develops. (Phronesis. a kind of practical knowledge, knowledge through experience.
see my post here for more information) Teachers need to anticipate and address problematic behaviors before they escalate. As teachers apply a classroom management plan and rules and establish a positive relationship with their students, children are more likely to develop self-discipline and learning will take place. As the person at my school responsible for the laminator, there is sometimes a good reason for this rule. We laminate twice a week, but every time we stop and restart, it wastes between 2 and 4 feet of film. If all the 100+ teachers in my school rolled out, it would be wasted 200 feet (half the roll). Even if it breaks, I`m the one who gets yelled at when people have to wait for the repairman. This morning, I received an email from someone asking me where his crushed belongings were. After all, she handed it over last Friday. It was on the shelf where I put it last Friday after plasticizing it.
The same shelf I always put it, the same shelf it was on Monday when we had a teacher`s workday, but you didn`t come to pick it up! It can`t be worse, can it? Well, we learned about a school that has no parking space at all. Teachers must park on the street all day and feed the meters. Written by an experienced educator, 42 Rules for Elementary Teachers (2nd edition) is a compendium of personal and practical professional advice on how to succeed as an elementary school teacher. These cutting-edge best practices foster clear connections to successfully create a learning community that supports students while keeping teachers healthy and successful. Here are the rules that help teachers govern the school. Whether it`s your first year of learning, your last, or somewhere in between, 42 Rules for Elementary Teachers (2nd Edition) will give you easy-to-implement strategies to be an exceptional and effective educator. I like the fact that the Swedish preschool program has no goals for children. but goals for teachers and the training/service they provide.
When I look at the curricula in many other parts of the world, the focus is always on the goals that the children have to achieve and that the rule is that the teacher takes them. Rules are important because they are guidelines for determining what is acceptable and what is not. Therefore, each institution or academy has its own rules and regulations. Indeed, without rules, there will be injustice, fairness and chaos among teachers. Below, I have mentioned a number of important rules for teachers that every teacher should follow. Some school principals don`t set school rules about what you drink, but how you drink it. “All drinks had to be in a traditional coffee cup without a lid, even water. I don`t even know why, but if someone spilled water on a computer, we were suddenly allowed to have water bottles with lids again. However, all of these teachers can count themselves lucky, because a principal we`ve heard about doesn`t allow his teachers to drink anything in the classroom. “No coffee, no soda, no water. Nothing. Urologists might have something to say about this.
Here is a last jewel of hazelnut. “I had a manager who was an extreme micromanager. She had these rules for data tables. They had to be specially color-coded. Anyway, good. I forgot to color code and got a nasty email about efficiency. Whatever! OK, I coded by color. I have it behind you and it`s done. Then another nasty email. I wasn`t using the right shade of blue, red or green and had to drop what I was doing and fix it as soon as possible.
So I put it off. I received so many nasty emails that it bordered on harassment. All because the shades I used weren`t the director`s favorite shades. Take the time to find out what your students enjoy doing and incorporate their interests into your lessons. Build a relationship and connection with them not only to include them in class, but also to show that you care about them beyond their performance in school. I started my teaching career at Headstart. I`m so grateful to be gone. We were not allowed to bring our own lunch as we had to eat with the students.
We had to eat what the children ate. Most of the time it was good because we had a good cook, but we had a few teachers with nutritional needs and couldn`t always eat what was served. Our “boss” told them that they had to pretend to eat what was served, and that they could then have lunch in the break room when the 15 minutes allotted to them came. We also had to pretend to eat the food if we didn`t like it. Also, we weren`t allowed to season our food in front of the kids because they couldn`t have salt and pepper on their food, so we couldn`t either. We weren`t allowed to drink soda or coffee in front of the kids, because if they couldn`t have it, we couldn`t either. Again, I`m so glad I left. 18. Proper maintenance of the equipment, player, laptop and academy furniture, etc. is also the responsibility of the teachers. If you take something, it should be placed in its own place after use.
Always be prepared to listen to others, especially your students. Use their feedback to improve your practice. Receptive teachers take the time to learn from what others have to say because they know they are not perfect. Even before the trash can fire of the past three years in education, teaching could become a difficult undertaking. Low pay, long hours, high expectations, difficult parents. The list goes on. However, some teachers have a little worse than others, with rules that make it look like they come from a petty tyrant instead of a principal. We asked our Facebook followers to share the ridiculous school rules that make their lives difficult, and yuck! Have they already responded? Here`s the best of the worst, and we swear they`re all real (though we keep them anonymous, of course). We all know that positivity has come a long way. But toxic positivity — rejecting all negative emotions or critical comments — can lead to resentment and separation. Take this educator whose principal took toxic positivity to the next level: “I once worked for a school district where the superintendent wouldn`t allow us to have a lounge or workspace because `teachers just go there to chat.`” Excuse me? We also use it for peanut M&Ms.
As a teacher, you need to be aware that all children think and speak at different speeds.
