Blog Post #9

What I've learned this year.
Mr. McClung had some great tips that everyone as a first year teacher could use. He talked about several things in his post involving the way you teach your students. He spoke about reading making sure your lessons are students centered on content and to be flexible in your lessons.  He said not to worry so much about the delivery of what you are teaching but instead to make sure the students are comprehending what is being taught.
He also mentioned things in the work place with other faculty members that I think would be very helpful. Communication was a big part that helps in building rapport with other teachers. He also spoke on technology and how it would be useful in the room. Finally he spoke on making sure you listen to your students and never stop learning. This is something that teachers should continue to use and have follow them for the rest of their career.

  1. Never stop learning. Very good advice!

    Last week Mr. McClung posted his third annual reflection. I think they get better and better. It will take only 5 minutes or so to read the 2010-2011 What I Learned This Year. I highly recommend it!

  2. Hey Heath,

    I think that you got what Mr. McClung was talking about. I hope that you can use this when you start to teach. I know that it will be helpful to me because I have no idea what to expect.

    Good post,
