As a teacher, I am analogous to a gardener. My classroom is
my garden, and my learners are the seeds. When my learners enter the classroom, it is the teacher's responsibility to nurture activities that will help them grow and bloom in the future. As a teacher and gardener, you must be patient and optimistic. Watering and monitoring the growth of the seedlings takes time. Teachers must understand that in some gardens, seedlings develop at their own
pace, while others require special care, and still others refuse to grow at all. Nothing will grow unless a seed is planted. They do, however, detect promise in seedlings that are failing to develop and do not condemn them for their failure. Instead, they look into other factors that could be impeding the seedling's growth. Gardeners are skilled problem solvers, but they recognize that no matter how much effort they put into a seedling, it will not grow as expected. In my opinion, effective teaching is holding learners to the highest standards and constantly challenging them to reach their full potential, build
confidence, and teach them to believe in themselves. Parents and children put their trust in teachers to help them achieve these objectives, and trust fosters a sense of honour. The most effective teachers have no limits for their learners and believe that everyone can succeed. As a teacher, you should be confident and proud to say that your flowers are flourishing all over the world, and you should be proud to say that you planted them.
CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT
The tool in question will be used to keep track of class behaviour. The idea is to hand out two ‘punch me cards’ every week to each group/row. The class in general is extremely disobedient, however, not disrespectful. It makes teaching difficult to commence throughout the day. I have noticed that when you challenge these learners they want to prove you wrong and present you with the work at the end of the lesson. The ‘punch me card’ will serve as a reward system. This classroom management tool will allow learners to compete with each other in a manner that is appropriate and monitored. The card will receive a punch whenever they act on a good deed e.g., picking up litter, assisting the teacher, being respectful while teaching and learning is happening, teamwork is presented, following instruction, keeping quiet etc. At the end of the week the group/row with the most punches receives a small reward. Hopefully this encourages my learners to work to the best of their abilities.
