TRAIN TO USE TIME WISELY
‘Time’ is an element we should treat with respect and more so than on the educational front. Too often it seems, meetings and other professional gatherings that add to the length of the school day, are held simply because they are timetabled.
If meetings are not necessary, why not cancel them. Teachers and school staff will appreciate the extra time generated and most will use it for other professional activities.
Neither should meetings drag on and on interminably. I believe that any presentation should not exceed twenty to twenty-five minutes. Presenters who go on and on lose their audience who are physically present but often mentally miles and miles away.
We all need to consider the importance and wise use of time. Train as teachers who are time conscious and time wise.
