5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) |

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

Pinterest has become a great location to find educational sources, and now they have launched a teachers hub. Currently they are boards that share information for grades PreK through Grade 6 (one board per grade) as well as boards for Art, Science, Math, Classroom Decor, Classroom Management, Home  School, Literacy, Sensory Learning, Gold Star Supplies, Back to School and Educational Blogs.

For more information on this new feature you may travel over to the Pinterest Blog where they posted "Say Hello to Pinterest" at

The current boards are for elementary school but the post also notes that they will "work together with Edutopia—an online resource for educators—to build out the education-focused community on Pinterest."

If you are looking for lesson plans, ideas for your classroom, and more it is worth checking out this resource.

This is a wonderful idea. Really looking forward to the development of this Teacher Hub.
