Blog Post #9
Mr. Clung talks about his first year teaching and how he learned. This advice he gives is very useful , especially for me. We all need to learn to communicate and listen to our future students, because this way we know what they are having trouble with, we know what we are doing right or wrong, and as he states to help build a better relationship with your students. We do need to be reasonable and not set our goals to high. Also as educators we need to continue to learn. We except our students to learn new things, so why shouldn't we. I loved the advice he gave, and I will definitely use it in the future.
Mr Clung Year 2010-2011
In this blog post he talks about his third year of teaching and the many new experiences. He states that this is his first experience as head coach, first experience coaching cross country, and first experience as a computer applications teacher. He gives more advice in this blog. We do need to know who our boss and that is the students. We should not be so consumed in trying to please everybody else that we forget about the students. I liked how he shows us what to expect in a PD meeting. People do not get very excited about new things, instead they will mutter "that will never work". We need to be more optimistic that idea that you think will not will, will mostly likely work. Remember that saying "don't knock it 'til you try it. You also don't have to blend in with everybody else. Like he states, don't be afraid to be an outsider. I love his blog and his blogs are very great resources to look back on and learn from.
