“If we want “Innovation” to flourish in our schools we have to be willing to immerse ourselves in the environments where its going to happen.”
George Couros, “The Innovators Mindset”, 2015
I am working on my teaching certification and wrapping up m last semester. I start student teaching in Spring, 2023. Some of the best things I have learned are the following:
Develop a Mantra
By definition a mantra originated through Hinduism and Buddhism. It is a word or phrase that is repeated to help guide the meditation.
Develop a new mindset and way of thinking
Alternative methods of teaching, giving students room for their own improvement, developing a philosophy behind my techniques of teaching.
The answers lie within the questions. Allow students to learn, grow and trust the process.
How Innovation is a forward way of thinking
Embrace the challenges, take it as an opportunity to grow and develop alternative ways to teach. To be able to create something new and better.
As I move forward and closer to my goal of becoming an educator I wish to continue to develop my own strategies in teaching, meet students needs / goals and continue to innovate and inspire my students. I also plan to fully immerse myself and my teaching ethnics into the school environment.
