This is my reply as a principal to Mrs. Angela; The Head of English language after sharing with us this article.
Thanks a lot Angela for sharing the article about motivating students. Although it looks, at the beginning, as if this is something frequently addressed, it later made me stop and spend some time thinking about perceptions and how much difference they can make in one’s life.
When I started reading the second half of the post, which is about teacher motivation, I thought that he wanted to attract his supervisors’ attention reminding them of their role in motivating teachers. This was my perception, which was completely wrong. All of his ideas were about positive thinking and being proactive in motivating himself and not waiting for others to do that for him. It was about empowering himself; being confident, skillful and professional from within, without blaming others for his impotence or making him a better teacher.
Anyway, I was thinking of that while reviewing my own practices in life, while reading the article. I just liked to share my thought with you.
