The Oprah of Education
Be consciously respectful of others' experiences
Validate thinking behind mistakes
Mix high value information with my own personal take on things
No one should get their hands slapped for doing things the "old way," because the "old way" was just a few years ago
Regular, systematic feedback
You have to find people to spend your time with who are the kinds of teachers you want to be .... you will become like the people you surround yourself with
Find a mentor- someone who I look up to, who has knowledge i dont have, and is willing to give me a little guidance every once in a while
[Teaching], its such a difficult job; its not meant to be easy, and people don't go into it because its easy, but I want to thank teachers
Remember to stop and pay attention
