I believe that we do a great disservice to our students when we aren’t able to share our passion for teaching and learning with them. When we just phone it in, they do the same. When we love what we do, that energy transfers as well. It’s in this light that I hope everyone who is called to teach does so in a way that helps instead of hinders the learning process. Students deserve a teacher who wants to teach instead of someone just biding their time until retirement. A few days ago I went to a new doctor who was kind and compassionate and extremely attentive. She asked questions and listened patiently to my answers. She was efficient and professional. I’ll most likely be a patient until I move or she retires. I knew within the first few minutes that she loved what she did and had my best interests at heart. It was one of the shortest appointments I have ever had; I left grateful for the experience.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all of your students left your class this way? It may not be realistic every single day, but what if it were? I’m sure
I had that amazing experience with my doctor because she was tapped into a source of joy, and providing a service made her extremely happy. You’ve felt it when you’ve received exceptional service from someone, and that’s a good standard to aim for with students. Doing so makes me Emotionally happy or, as I like to write it, Happe.
When you do work you were born to do, and use all of your unique gifts and talents, you help others in a way that no one else can. I work with burned-out teachers because I know what it feels like to secretly hate going to a job that makes you feel incompetent. Doing so helps me combine lessons I learned from that painful experience with my life-coaching expertise to help teachers transition from a job they hate to one they are able to fall in love with again or find another profession where they can use their original medicine every single day.
