To be remarkable teachers, we must learn to rise above our problems and bring our best self to the kids. Have you ever struggled to get out of the car to walk into school on Mondays? I have. As for me, I needed this Monday morning pep talk from Todd Nesloney, author of the book Kids Deserve It!.
Todd is giving away a Kids Deserve It! Book, bracelet and sticker! Thanks Todd!
All you need to do is head over to leave a review on iTunes and just include your Twitter or Instagram handle so we can reach you.
Teaching is important. It is awesome. But teaching is hard. (If you teach, you don’t need me to tell you. You live the struggle.)
In today’s show Todd and I discuss:
Leaving your stress in the car when you head into school
Getting parents excited to receive your phone calls
Unleashing student intrinsic motivation
How to deal with failure
The biggest mistake educators often make when trying to reach struggling kids
I hope you enjoy this episode with Todd.
