THOUGHTS FOR PRE-SERVICE AND BEGINNING TEACHERS (4)

10. When counselling, correcting or advising students, be EMPATHETIC. In your mind’s eye, put yourself into their place. Think how it would feel to be on the receiving end of what you are about to say. But ensure they understand their part in responsibility for and ownership of issues.

11. When in classrooms as preservice teachers, SEEK FEEDBACK from mentors on things you are doing well and on what might be done differently and better. Take initiative and initiate these conversations.

12. With assignments and practice preparation, work steadily toward completion and readiness. USE TIME WISELY. Take breaks, relax your mind, then come back to tasks. RECORD work to do and list tasks done.
