What Motivates Teachers?

What Motivates Teachers? | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
Teachers overwhelmingly report that they love their jobs, but hate their workplaces. Teachers weigh in on why they love the classroom and how things could change to make their lives easier.

Durriyyah Kemp's insight:

Teaching is by far one of the most rewarding occupations there is.  However, attached to those great rewards are lots of policies, assessments, and evaluations.  When you start to feel burned out and in a rut, you must remind yourself why you wanted to become a teacher in the first place.  You have to regain that aspirational spirit and motivation.  You must encourage yourself through the difficult times... its critical for everyday effectiveness.

What places inspiring work, teaching, at the bottom of the happiness scale and yet can, at the same time, be inspiring and rewarding work? The environment many teachers work in is one that does not reward the teachers for the fine work they do when it is done.

52 Of Our Favorite Inspirational Quotes For Teachers - TeachThought | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
We’ve dug through dozens of books, teacher magazines, pinterest boards, and other blogs to find 52 of our favorite inspirational quotes for teachers. We’ve tried to come up with a range of ways of thinking about teaching and learning without resorting to the most cliche lines you’ve heard again and again.

Some of these you’ve likely heard before, but hopefully the bulk of them are both new, and capable of that extra push when you need it.

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff - Edutopia

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff - Edutopia | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
An idea that is beginning to gain a lot of favour in educational circles at the moment is the notion of fixed versus growth mindsets, and how they might relate to students and learning. Based on the work of Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, the idea of mindset is related to our understanding of where ability comes from. It has recently been seized upon by educators as a tool to explore our knowledge of student achievement, and ways that such achievement might be improved.

However, in my work, I have found that the notion of developing a growth mindset is as equally applicable to staff and teacher performance as it is to students. This article begins with a brief discussion about the difference between the two mindsets, what that means for education, and concludes with some ideas for how school leaders might seek to develop a growth mindset amongst their staff.

Developing Teachers' Social and Emotional Skills

Developing Teachers' Social and Emotional Skills | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
Emotions are at the heart of what teachers do and why they do it. Educators come to teaching with dreams of changing the odds for disadvantaged children, inspiring a love for learning, or developing critical thinkers. Unfortunately, research shows that 40-50 percent of teachers will leave the classroom within their first five years. Stress among teachers has reached unprecedented levels, and according to the latest MetLife Survey of the American Teacher (PDF), over half of teachers reported "great stress at least several days a week." Teaching is an emotional practice, and teachers need support in strengthening their social and emotional skills to manage the stress that comes with teaching and stay in the profession for the long term.

Via Roger Francis, Dean J. Fusto
Durriyyah Kemp's insight:

Yes, yes, and yes!  The ongoing development of teachers' social and emotional skills is essential to the teaching and learning dynamic!

From the conversations about their learning, the partnership between the teacher and learner evolves where they set learning goals, regularly monitor their own progress and modify and set new learning goals based on the learner profile. Within these new goals, skills and learning strategies are discussed, defined and planned between the teacher and learner.

4 tips to combat baby bullying: Developing empathy and building community

4 tips to combat baby bullying: Developing empathy and building community | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

"Developing empathy and building community should be at the heart of any high-quality early childhood program,” says Mary Sue Reese, director of the Winnetka Covenant Preschool.
 
Social-emotional learning has been a focus for Chicago Public Schools since 2012.
 
“We are explicitly giving teachers the skills they need to build supportive environments and prevent bullying,” says Amy Mart, CPS manager of universal supports. “We are teaching respect for peers and teachers, empathy via perspective-taking, communication skills like how to clearly articulate your needs to someone else, self-advocacy and help-seeking skills.”

 

Tips to try

Practice role-playing with kids....Don’t be afraid to bring it to others’ attention....Intervene when someone’s being mean....Don’t give all the attention to the child engaging in bullying....

Here’s what doesn’t get the headlines: Empathy.

 

Listening to those around you. Even if you don’t like them very much. We have come to live in a culture where it’s taboo or unacceptable to simply check in with people emotionally and offer some empathy and understanding. I’m not saying this would magically fix all gun violence.

 

I’m just saying that all of these things — the lack of gun laws, the lack of health care, the inability to have basic conversations with friends and neighbors about what’s going on with them, these are all extensions of a callous and self-absorbed culture that lacks any real empathy.

Creating the Classroom Conditions for the Best Day Ever - User Generated Education

Creating the Classroom Conditions for the Best Day Ever - User Generated Education | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

#Lately, I have become a little obsessed with idea of the best day ever. It is undeniable obvious when you see someone have or experience for yourself a peak experience: succeeding with a difficult, seemingly impossible task; getting a unexpected, amazing gift; finishing or winning a competitive event (depending on your goal); being given accolades for a personal accomplishment.  I personally perceive it as a coming together or congruence of the mind, heart, body, and spirit where all of them are present in the moment and fulfilled. It translates into experiencing a flow state.

So this has led to me thinking how educators can create the conditions for learners to have and exclaim, “This is the best day ever!” Whoever said or made up the rules that school should be serious, boring, or painful? The institutions and places where learning takes place should be joyful and exciting places.
