How To Be An Exсellent Educator?

Can a teacher successfully educate students without becoming a lifelong learner? In the age of accountability and high stakes, it is unlikely. With all of the benefits and advantages that lifelong learners accrue, teachers who adopt this mentality are more than excellent educators: they’re excellent models for their students.

What Is a Lifelong Learning Mindset?

It is a mindset and a habit for people to acquire. For teachers, putting in this kind of lifelong work will help better amplify their capabilities, collaborate with colleagues, and transform in turn the way their students navigate the world.

What you need to implement it?

Lifelong learning requires progress and an integration of new theories, innovative systems, practices, and assessment. For teachers, putting in this kind of lifelong work will help better amplify their capabilities, collaborate with colleagues, and transform in turn the way their students navigate the world.

Three Good Reasons For Teachers to Read

If you are a good teacher, you should be encouraging your students to read. And if you are encouraging your students to read, then you should also be reading. It’s a marvelous cycle.

Reading Makes You a Person of Your Word

Being an educator means that you have taken on the responsibility of promoting strategies that are good for your students’ overall education. And you know what is an easy and fun way to learn? You guessed it. Reading. Even if you’re not an English teacher or elementary school teacher that explicitly asks your students to read novels, you are still asking them to read. Textbooks and nonfiction pieces count. Make no mistake, students notice when you practice what you preach. If you’re able to recommend them books or have a quick conversation about whether or not the book was better than the movie, they will notice. Your teaching is so much more impactful if you can walk the walk and talk the talk.

Reading Makes You More Empathetic

Empathy is one of the most important characteristics of a good teacher. Our students are people first. They have families, friends, and pets (which are both family and friends) that are integral to their lives. They have good days and bad days and mediocre days. But no matter the day, you need to serve the educational needs of students who have wildly different experiences from you. So in order to be a good teacher, you need to be able to understand circumstances outside of your own. You need to be empathetic. At the very least, when you can’t be empathetic, you need to be sympathetic

Reading Literally Makes You Healthier

Reading can slow the cognitive aging process. When your mind is engaged in intense mental activity, it does better. Think of it like working out at the gym. Using your muscles more allows them to be stronger. Reading made people more willing to be “left uncertain.” At first glance, this might not seem like a handy skill, but it definitely is. 'Black' and 'white' thinking can be debilitating. The world has many shades of gray, blue, red, and yellow. We need to be able to handle that there are often multiple responses to a situation and many of them are neither right nor wrong. Sometimes, a response can even be a strange mixture of both right and wrong!
