Proud To be a Teacher
“Not every day is good but there is something good in every day.” Alice Morse Earl.
Although there aren’t always smooth sailing days, there is always something good to look forward to. Finding the good in everything is an inborn trait. People who are optimistic are like that. In every creation, there is some sort of positivism. A certain amount of energy is required for creation. A mentor must cultivate positivism in all his or her actions as a teacher. Children are fragile; it is our duty to enable them to see positivism beyond any obstacles.
A positive attitude is always inherent in intelligent individuals. Intelligent people are capable of thinking, learning from their experiences, solving problems, and adapting to new circumstances. Human behaviour is influenced by intelligence, as it affects many aspects of it.
In order to learn again, students need to develop multiple intelligences. When you use the various bits of intelligence in your teaching, you can ensure that every one of your diverse students succeeds. When students are taught according to their strengths, they learn better.
It is impossible to learn without intelligence. In other words, intelligence is the foundation for learning. Intelligence determines the effectiveness of learning. A student with high intelligence is easier to teach or to direct and guide than a student with low intelligence.
Each student has multiple intelligences and learns in different ways. In other words, not every person learns best through a single method of teaching. The best mentors know their students well and are capable of training them appropriately. Teacher’s intelligence helps them to understand their students individually. On the other hand, learners’ intelligence helps them to learn things quickly and efficiently.
Our responsibility as mentors is to find something positive in every situation. Every student comes to the school with a renewed sense of hope, enthusiasm, and curiosity. From next month, students in grades 5 and above will be able to attend the schools again. The pandemic has taken away our beautiful school days and learning experiences. Let’s prepare for the new school year with much happiness and adequate preparation.
Have a blessed day
