The 4 Bs of a Teacher Candidate Becoming a teacher involves: Being true to yourself, Building real relationships, and Belonging to an educational community. c/o Paula Rusnak
My beliefs Teaching is a skill, a craft that takes a career to develop. Most new teachers are not born. They are novices who evolve with experience. Effective teaching is adapting to different students, cultures, locales, times, and trends. Teaching is collaborative - working with students, colleagues, mentors, outside agencies (PACs, PSAs, the Ministry). Teaching is communicating, listening, connecting, engaging, being relevant, and encouraging critical thinking. Teaching can become a lifelong passion.
