Teach Tip Tuesday: Share with a Colleague

Welcome to this week’s Teach Tip Tuesday. This week I want to encourage you to share something with a colleague. Often teachers, depending on their context hear few positives during their day or week and due to the many task we are all trying to accomplish we end up as mini silos, each working towards their own goal and sharing is forgotten.

Here are 5 ways that you can share with your colleagues:

1. Share a resource

Have you got a great resource that you have created or found? Why don’t you share it with the teachers in your team.

2. Share a compliment

Tell a colleague about something positive that you have seen or otherwise heard from students. This can be a real boost to a teachers day.

3. Share something positive you are doing in your classroom

Do you have a great behaviour management strategy, a different pedagogical approach or something else fantastic that you are doing? Share it with your colleagues and even better yet invite them in to come and see you in action.

4. Share your time

Have you noticed a colleague that’s having difficulty in class? Why not offer to come in and help for part of a lesson or two while they get on top of the students behaviour.

5. Share something personal

Improve your relationships by sharing something personal, like what you did on the weekend, your favourite book or movie.

Let us know how your sharing goes this week by leaving a comment below or on our Facebook page.
