Developing Soft skills

Topic:  Developing time management skills
For every teacher, time is an important resource since we usually feel that it is not possible to achieve what we need because there is far too much work for the number of hours in a day. As teachers we need to balance the long-term goals with the immediate needs of our students besides all the additional work that comes along: writing lesson plans, grading exams and filling grade sheets, parents´ meetings, etc.
For all these reasons we need effective time management skills, to increase our productivity and provide a better education for our students. Join us in this workshop to help each other manage the situation.

Topic:  Developing Self-Confidence: Helping Student’s Overcome their Fear
 In order to help our students achieve their best, we must understand what obstacles they are struggling with. In many cases, the limiting factor in a student’s progress is not a lack of ability or willingness to put in the work, but rather a lack of self-confidence. By helping students shake their fears and self-consciousness, we can encourage them to reach their full potential and share their knowledge and opinions with others.

Teaching is probably one of the most rewarding jobs although it may be the least well rewarded in terms of money in many countries.
In spite of that I am really happy to be a teacher and so today I need to thank my teachers for helping me to become who I am, I thank my fellow teachers for supporting and helping me to improve as a teacher. Last but not least, I am grateful to my students for teaching me how important it is to learn in order to teach.
