Effective Leaders Must Become Effective Teachers

Effective Leaders Must Become Effective Teachers

Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us.
Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.

 ~Andy Rooney

This quote by Andy Rooney has always stuck with me because I have fond memories of great teachers I’ve had in my life … many of which have been leaders I’ve worked directly for.  Whether you are in a formal teaching role or are a boss who has the responsibility of teaching others, please enjoy a few of my favorite teaching tips and techniques:

  • Give specific feedback as often as possible. Use verbal comments on notes to share your observations. Give feedback that supports, informs, and inspires the learner. Be specific. Make sure your comments describe the situation, the behavior, and the result.
  • Communicate clear expectations. Share the objectives at the beginning of each teaching exercise. Let people know what is expected and what they will need to learn. If you are expecting quality work, people need to know what that looks like. Show a visual example, if possible, and clearly describe the expected outcome.
  • Encourage everyone to assume leadership roles. Create opportunities for everyone to lead. When you empower people through leadership roles, their undiscovered talents will often rise to the occasion. Offer those roles to the underachievers, and those unlikely to assert themselves. Professionally nudge them when confidence is lacking. Support and guide them toward success with the help of those who normally “shine.”

A Powerful New “How to” Handbook for Teachers: 180 Ways to Enhance Your Success as a Teacher.

A Powerful New “How to” Handbook for Teachers: A+ TEACHING: 180 Ways to Enhance Your Success as a Teacher.

This powerful “must read” book Learn more here is filled with practical activities, tips, and strategies to apply in daily teaching activities.  They come from author, Louise Paris, an experienced educator – and over 90 teachers, parents and students, worldwide, who have contributed ideas based on their own educational experiences.

Being a teacher comes with a great deal of joy, satisfaction, and personal fulfillment…but also comes with a backpack full of challenges.  Ultimately, it’s a teacher’s job to guide students in becoming caring, productive citizens who have acquired the intellectual and social skills to be contributing members of society.

Effective teaching is demanding work!  It involves developing impressive communication skills, being organized, setting daily goals, and having a willingness to make changes.  It means knowing your curriculum well, being able to successfully assess learning, interpret data, and use those results to drive instruction.  A+ Teaching is even more demanding!  It goes far beyond the practice of delivering curriculum and assessing learning.  It’s about balance – the balance between the act of teaching and the interactions of a kind-hearted human.  One without the other limits any teacher’s potential for greatness.

Most teachers are dedicated and effective professionals.  They work diligently and do their jobs well.  But just as it’s important for today’s students to continually improve; it’s equally important for educators.  This insightful book will help them do just that.  “Whether you are a new or experienced teacher – no matter if you teach preschool, elementary, or high school…there’s something in this book for you!”  Louise Paris

Start the school year off right with A+ Teaching.  It is the one book you will want all your teaching staff reading and using today!

A+ TEACHING is available in both Softcover Book AND digital E-book format at WalkTheTalk.Com and on Amazon.com.
