Teachers

Even if you are an educator yourself, choosing the perfect gift for your child’s teacher can be HARD! You want the gift to show your appreciation for all of his/her hard work. Adding a personal twist makes it even better. Finding something that they don’t already have and finding a gift that teachers actually want is the icing on the cake. But, how do you do that? Let’s face it, choosing the perfect teacher gift can be HARD and often ends up with teachers getting yet another coffee mug! Check out this guide to make your teacher gift giving easier and find gifts that teachers actually want.

Teaching is not easy. You need a lot of know-how, dedication, and patience to get the results that you want. Sometimes, you may feel that what you have learned in college isn’t enough to bring out the best in your students. Thankfully, there are resources that can help you increase student engagement, reduce negative behaviors, and improve student outcomes. Introducing our list of the 10 best books for teachers 2020.

Behavior

The school year is up and running, and you’re probably preparing for the first set of assessments for your class. By now, you’ve likely determined which students need extra…extra help on assignments, extra attention from you, extra activities to keep them challenged and, of course, EXTRA help with behavioral issues! And, then there’s the elusive kid who needs EXTRA of all of the above! So the question is, are you proactive or reactive with your classroom management?

Behavior

Not everyone can be an excellent educator. It takes a special kind of person to genuinely love a child like they are your own, because that is truly what it takes.

Social-Emotional Learning

As the new school year kicks off, students arrive to newly decorated classrooms and (mostly) refreshed and reenergized educators approaching yet another new year armed with new ideas and the optimism only a new school year can bring! “It’s going to be a great year, our best year yet!” we all whisper to ourselves believing that the lessons learned from past classes paired with the information we gained from books and seminars over the summer will be the true difference makers we hope they’ll be! And we’re right on many levels. Things will be different, better, and more student-focused. However, each year, like a mother forgets the pain of childbirth, we, teachers and school staff, forget the physical and mental fatigue that inevitably comes with doing this job well. Alas, it is my suggestion that part of our strategic plan this year from school boards and superintendents to building administrators, teachers, and paraprofessionals includes a preventative plan to ensure we care for ourselves, for one another, and strive to protect school staff’s mental health and prevent burnout. In this post, we will walk through how education has changed, why support is needed, and how both administrators and educators can help.

Leadership

When it comes to being a school leader, there are many issues that need to be addressed.

This means challenging students to think for themselves as well as developing core values and beliefs.

With budgets being tight, some educators may no longer afford annual vacations that include hotel stays, airline tickets and vehicle hire. Many people are now looking at cheaper alternatives. This may include road trips to visit friends and family, but one of the most popular ideas taking hold is that of the staycation. This means a vacation where you stay at your home country but still have tons of fun. What are some things educators enjoy doing on staycations?

Data

In education, information speaks volumes. Data analysis can provide an overview of what students know, of what they should know, and what can be done to meet their academic needs.
