My ABC’s of Teaching


My ABC’s of Teaching that Makes a Difference
Approachable anytime, anywhere
Be
 real, Be true, Be a friend 
Competent, 
in both content and pedagogic knowledge
Dare 
to be different
Enthusiasm 
is contagious
Fun, fUn, fuN
Give 
advice sparingly, Give praises abundantly
Hope
 that sees beyond the rock and beholds the diamond within
Inspires 
motivation, Inspires confidence
Journals 
– reflect and act
Keep 
learning, Keep growing 
LOVE 
the language, LOVE the learners
Meet 
needs – marries theory with practice to suit a particular context
No 
name-calling, No sarcasm
Organised but not ‘rigid’
Patient – answer the same question for the hundredth time as if the first
Quality 
teaching, Quality material, Quality assessment 
Respect 
your students and they will respect you
Supportive – tell me where I went wrong and please don’t leave me there
Treasure the moments
Up-to-date and attuned to their culture, their way
Value what students bring to the task
Work with me, don’t just work for me
Xtra-mile that’s what makes the difference
Yes, can do – be positive!
Zero tolerance against racism, sexism and favoritism
