When I first started teaching all the experienced teachers told me what I should do eg. be strict, be firm with your students. But that is sincerely not who I am within. I was given the worse class - so that is what I was told. Today, I am so bless to have wonderful students who are so loving and kind. Just love your students, be kind, compassionate and have a listening ear, smile as often as you can (even when you are teaching). I motivate them when they feel they think they cannot do something. Experienced teachers ask me how I handle this class because they see the difference. DON'T BE TOO STRICT. JUST BE A TEACHER, MENTOR AND A FRIEND TO YOUR STUDENTS.
