Flexibility of Teachers

Adaptability is one of the essential skills for a teacher to possess when it comes to the classroom and preparation. Things can and will go wrong and as a teacher I find it challenging as well as exciting to have to adapt and change at a moments notice. "Chance favors the prepared." is a quote that I have always tried to follow. Essentially the teacher who prepares for alternative plans is the teacher who is one step closer to becoming a great teacher. I constantly find that things happen even to the best laid plans and if I haven't prepared or thought of an alternative for just such a case, then I will be at the mercy of the students.

  1. Along with those "emergency lesson plans" in the front office of our schools, we should have "emergency lesson plans" in our back pockets for those days when the tech doesn't work or the plan otherwise flops.
