“Practice what you preach” and hope for the best!!!
As an educator, I try very hard to implement the concepts that I teach to others and to make it a habit. “Actions speak louder than words” is a very real and true statement; however, do you ever wonder if others are even “noticing?” In the world of education, your “teaching moments” may come “far and few between”; therefore, when they arise, I do my best to use them and seize the moment with practicality. This occurred today and I “seized” the moment, only to be dismayed, and disappointed. The student did not experience the same “LIGHTBULB” moment and had a negative comment that was in direct oppositionn to what I was teaching, yet seemed completely satisfactory to him/her. Well, these things happen and what do you do? Get back on the horse and continue to ride…
I do love educating and not a day goes by that I do not learn…from others, from errors, from…many things.
How about you??
