teachers ' motivation and service toward their students.

Hindrances that Impede the Growth of Teacher Leaders Boles (1992) discovered from their research that when teachers felt that their abilities and skills and educational experience were ignored, they found it harder to exercise leadership not only in the school as a whole, but also in the classroom. Little (1995) backed up this view by showing that in order for a school to implement teachers as leaders, the management of the school must be willing to extend real power to teachers in their roles as leaders and not only give titles with no duties or authority to carry them out. Little (1995) established that teacher-leadership could only really find success when management was willing to give up some of their authority to teachers so they could actually engage making their ideas known and seeing many of their concepts implemented into the overall functioning of the school.

The author also stated that all professional development should always include and be centered around instructing teachers in the skills of cooperation and service to one another. Ovando (1994) reported that ne negative element associated with teacher-leadership was that many that teachers felt that the increased responsibilities also reduced teachers ' available time needed to fulfill their regular duties such as planning lessons after they took on their added roles as leaders in their

    The new teacher must also feel comfortable with their own knowledge of the content they are teaching. In the beginning stages of their teaching career, new teachers often fear that they will not do well and will be judged by their colleagues. These fears often disappear when the teacher realizes that he or she has the capability to teach in the classroom and should not worry about being judged by their coworkers. While encouragement is often preferred, we should not shy away from constructive criticism. Because new teachers do not have enough experience in the beginning of their teaching career they might feel apprehension as to how to help unmotivated students see the value of learning.…

    I would relate our principals’ philosophy as a loosen coupled classification. Our principal want teachers to make the curriculum their own and developed the curriculum their way. He believes that by doing this the teachers will take greater appreciation for their craft and develop strong lessons and become better educational leaders. Our principal does not like the idea of teacher proof curriculums. Though, the Apex program is a teacher proof curriculum, which he explained as a needed extra curriculum to help those students that have no other option.…

    By building relationships, the environment changes; it becomes a caring environment in which the students feel comfortable because they feel as though their teachers care for them. By building relationships with their students, teachers are more aware of what their students need and can then curtail their curriculum to the student’s likes and needs which is a high motivation factor (Strong, Silver & Robinsons, 1995). Relationships in the classroom are very important in a child’s learning process. Environments that have positive relationships, which then motivate the students to push forward academically, are what are needed. Uncomfortable settings do not provide an adequate learning environment in which students are able to express themselves.…

    Forcing participation seems as though it would hurt trust and Maele and Houtte (2011) ♠, made it clear that trust is very important. That is why I is important for the teacher to make it clear that the talks are not about academics. I also think it is important for a teacher to open it up to the possibility of small groups coming to meet with that teacher as a way to help student feel more comfortable and confident about meeting. These meetings develop trust, and through deciding to meet boost participation, because the student is choosing to engage more in the class even if it is not directly related to…

    Since the biggest problem seems to start in high poverty areas and schools, being able to improvise on a lesson plan for the day can save time and help students to not get behind on their work. Another way would be for teaching students to be required to shadow teachers in more than one school. If a student can go through training from smaller schools to bigger schools, they will acquire more experience and more ideas on how to control the classroom in an effective way. They need to be shown how to handle massive workloads in a timely matter, without being stressed out. Teachers should gain the skills of being patient, comforting, uplifting, and have new ideas for the classroom before being qualified to teach.…

    I believe that teachers have to be willing to listen to what the students have to say. Teachers will always face students who don’t understand or grab a topic right away. Teachers have to understand they were once students and if a student ask for assistance or a question they have to be able to explain it in a different way for the student to understand. The education system is not perfect, but even though this is true. Teachers have to be willing to go the extra mile to help better their students.…

    Many teachers are autonomous and do not like having someone critique their classroom instruction practices. It is important that teacher leaders work hard to build a professional working relationship with their colleagues. In my time as the reading chairman for my campus, I used several different methods to ensure the trust and respect of my colleagues. I soon realized that when I spoke to other teachers, I needed concrete plans or solutions for problems before going to my peers. I found that teachers didn’t want vague ideas or generalities, instead they wanted plans that they could immediately put into practice.…

    It was a reoccurring theme that actually helped to make me think about all the problems and the issues that affects the lack of graduates now. Students sometimes do not understand that they hold their own future in their hands so they should be responsible for it. Liberal education gives students more options and freedom to make better choices to make it easier for students futures. The teachers are more influential and effective with their teaching when they are allowed to do what they believe is best for their students. Once you can learn and understand the problem you can help to fix it and I understand why Mrs. Basiletti decided to teach this way.…

    The topic I chose to argue about is should students be allowed to grade their teacher or professor’s teaching style and attitude the same way they are graded as a student in a classroom. Some teachers may look at this idea as silly because they feel as though teaching is a lifestyle and they actually get paid for it. Not only is it a lifestyle but the student needs the teacher in order to progress through school to receive the type of education they would like. Another reason is teachers may feel as though since they were professionally educated on how to teach other people why should they be graded by someone who does not have much experience? After all they are pro’s at what they do on the daly basis.…
