i'm teaching a new group of students this year. but, since this is the first time i'm teaching them, i think i'm going to start it slow. so, the for the first week, I set up a few rules for the students. Let’s see :
No textbooks, exercise books, no pencils or erasers..or sharpeners, or ruler, or anything…is to be on the desks; before I enter the class.
No mess! Absolutely….not even on the floor. Hehehehehe.
Clean blackboard, otherwise I’ll just simply write over what the previous teacher left on the blackboard.
Be courteous and polite, for every granted requests (going to the toilet and entering the class) should be followed with a THANK YOU.
Be ready for more rules….
TRY, TRY, TRY and TRY AGAIN….do not give up! Teacher (that’s me!) will guide you!
i know...i know... it might sound diva-ish, but, i'm trying to get the best out of these students. i know, they can cope with my rules and regulations, and i know they are going to do well in their studies....so help me God!
