IF YOU KNOW IT, THEN SHOW IT.

April 2, 2019

I find myself often asking my five year old to '"show it" after I remind him to do something and he initially say, "I know!" It seems like I need to take some of my own advice when it comes to showing my students that I care about them.

As this quote from research focused on perceived teacher caring suggests, teachers need to make sure students KNOW they care about them.

Or, at least find a way to be perceived as caring.

I say it a lot on my podcast that teachers pick (or get picked?) education because they care about young people and want to make a difference.

Few have heeded the call based on lucrative salaries and signing bonuses.

If you will, take this as a reminder that we need to find a way to show our students we care about them in order to be perceived as a teacher that cares.

We all care.

Now we just have to find a way to show it in a way that our students truly understand.
