Think about the phrase, a good teacher never stop learning. What does the phrase mean to you? Recognize that everyone is a teacher through our actions and sharing of knowledge. As a parent, from the moment you make your children up each day you begin the teaching process. Our children are continuously receiving learning stimulus and seeking knowledge from you and the environment around them. As a manager, coach, teacher, professor, consultant or athlete, your actions are observed, often imitated and directly reflected in your span of influence. The aspect of never stop learning should be taught to your children, workforce personnel, students, players and peers.
Be aware, the decisions you make influence and teach those around you. the phrase, a good teacher never stop learning, is grounded in the belief you consciously maintain an open-minded approach to situations that arise daily. Keeping an open mind allows the cycle of learning to be part of all phases of your personal and professional life.
If by profession you are a teacher, your realize the interactive nature of teaching and learning directly or indirectly imprinted to your peers, students, children, and grandchildren. By keeping an open mind, you have recognized one of the most fundamentally important aspects of the teaching process. I know there are professional teachers out in the world today with many more great lessons to share; I encourage you to do so. Do you remember the favorite teachers of your past and what made them so good? I,II tell you....they kept an open mind to your input, presented choices to you, explored your ideas and shared their knowledge in a fun and interactive way. Good teachers offer two or three suggestions as a way to influence a choice. This technique is a terrific first step in allowing someone to realize the power behind making decisions, and at the same time learning from the outcome.
keep the door open to learning, seek new information and interact with different people as often as you can. Watch out, soon you will grow and want to seek out knowledge and subject matter may have never considered before. Be open to challenges and questions you are confronted with from your peers, student and children. Take on those questions in a positive manner and discover the possibility there may be different ways to perform tasks or solve problem.
