As a teacher you should be fair, caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and teach to the audiences learning style. I am teaching for 14 years in the culinary field. There are many challenges for a teacher because every student is different. Every student has his or her problem, family, health, money etc. learn a little bit about them, get to know them a little bit, talk to them if they have challenges with homework, transportation is very important as well. I gave them tutoring lessons, I have office hours etc.
Action plan for me would be:
Students be on time
Hold them accountable
Have all lecture note ready, give them handouts
Help students when in need
Make them successful to finish school
Successes of my students:
Learning new skill, to get better jobs, students become better to work as a team. I had 3 students they were on the food network.
Challenges: students running out of money for school, transportation, homework etc.
Teaching is a very challenging job at this time with Covid, online classes, students can’t come to school etc.
