Cheers to the 4 day weekend! And, Happy Easter everyone ! 🐰🐰
Quelle belle semaine! Wow.. Je dois avouer que c’est la première fois depuis semaine 1 que je me suis sentie confiante, authentique et dynamique devant mes classes. J’ai trouvé un rythme de travail qui me convient, j’étais plus préparé et j’étais aussi plus proactif pour des imprévus.
FINDING MY GROOVE
Starting out Monday, I just felt genuinely good. These positive vibes translated throughout the week as well. I couldn’t believe the change in me; especially in the things I was saying, the conversations I was having and the way I felt in front of the class. I believe that I have started to build REAL relationships with the students. How?
Well, checking in with them; talking with them in the hallways; giving them constructive feedback; having difficult conversations with them (when needed); being honest with them; telling them how PROUD I am of their work; sending in des “bon coups” e-mails; building on things I already know about them and showing them that I care about them and their success - I want them to succeed! With all of these things came more genuine conversations, I was able to joke around and kept things fun.
Sincèrement, je me sens comme si le fait que je me sens plus confiante devant eux affecte grandement mon efficacité de leur enseigner. J’ai pris le vol!
