13 Important Facts All Teachers Should Consider:

 

13 Important Facts All Teachers Should Consider:

1. The 3 Cs: “Be CLEAR on your expectations for behavior and performance. Be CON-SISTENT—follow through so students know what to expect from you as a teacher. Be COMPASSIONATE—show your students that you really care about them and want them to succeed.”
2. Management Matters: “Strong classroom management is the key to teaching. No mat-ter how well you know the content, students can't learn in a chaotic environment.”
3. Routines Are Your Friends: “They should be the first things that you teach!”
4. Flexibility Rules: “Relax. Be in control. Be prepared to be flexible!”
5. Wear Comfy Shoes: “Number 1: It's all about relationships. If you make the students feel that you genuinely care about them, they'll do what you ask and then some.
6. What Andrea Willis Says Is True: “Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!”
7. Never Break a Promise: “Don't promise a child something you're not 100% sure you can come through on—they need to know you are trustworthy and that you mean what you say.”
8. You’re a Student Too: “You will learn twice as much as your kids do EVERY single day until the day you retire!”
9. Leader of the Pack: “You are the lead dog and your students are your team waiting to run the big race.”
10. Help Is Always Available: “Don't be afraid to ask for it.”
11. School Is Just a Part: “You are only one part of their lives and they won't know how important a part for many, many years.”
12. Have Faith in Yourself: “You can handle this.”
13. You’re Guarding Treasure: “Remember that parents are sending their most prized possessions. They are not hiding any others at home. They are sending their best. Re-spect that.”

by Tammy Liscomb, Weatherization Program Assistant

Each month we will be posting Weatherization Tips to help our customers keep warm, cool and healthy at home. This month, I am sharing three easy ways to save money on your electric bill. 

 

  1. Unplug all your appliances and turn off all appliances including computers and monitors when not using them.
  2. Remember to turn off lights when you leave a room!
  3. Install a motion sensor for your lights outside.

 

This is just a start on your family's journey to save money. Stay tuned each month for more Weatherization Tips from Community Action of Southern Kentucky's Weatherization Department.
