Love Yourself Into Great
Teaching Experiences

  

However your students behave, it is how you behave that is your first responsibility as their teacher.  Being in charge in the classroom begins with being in charge of yourself while you are in the classroom.  Any student who can make you react is in charge of you.

  

When your students treat you as powerless, how do you handle that?  Do you believe in your powerlessness?  Do you believe you have to prove your power to them?  Do they trigger your insecure feelings about yourself that hide deep down inside?

  

Paying attention to what is going on within you is at least as important as paying attention to what is going on around you in the classroom.  Maybe more so, because it is through self-awareness that you can grow into your higher potential right there in front of your pupils

  

We teach through who we are, not through what we say.  You model the behavior you lead your classroom toward.  When you remain dedicated to fulfilling your greater potential, you inspire that same dedication in your students.

  

The classroom behavior that you cannot handle easily does not make that situation wrong.  It makes it right for you because it gives you the opportunity to see what you are doing that is not working.  From there you can receive epiphanies that light up new ways to handle it.  You’ll find your way into a higher state of classroom behavior mastery, making what is difficult for you today easy for you tomorrow.

  

The first thing to work on regarding classroom behavior management is non-reactivity to student behavior.  When you react you are repeating habitual emotional patterns.  You are not growing.  Practice maintaining your inner peace when students behave in ways that cause you to feel tempted to get stressed out, angry, or insecure.

  

With exercise you will find your classroom inner peace strengthening.  Instead of focusing on how you want your students to change, focus on how you want to change the way you feel while you are with your students You want to feel calm, confident and in control.  Well, practice feeling that way, more and more.

  

You really do have some choice about the way that you feel in any given classroom situation. But the more you abdicate that choice by blaming your students for your reaction the less freedom of choice you experience.

  

The best place to be duiring class-time is in state of self-compassion.  Self-compassion means that you are not pushing yourself or punishing yourself into inner states of pain.  You remain relaxed, calm, confident, secure, loving.  

  

The fact is that your students don’t make you react.  They behave in ways that tempt you to react. You can use those episodes to empower your self-control.

  

When you are being kind to yourself it doesn’t matter what your students say or do, you remain calm, centered, loving.  Why?  Because those states are good for you.

  

As you remain calm, centered and loving you will earn your students’ trust.  They will be more prone to let you in to reach and teach them.  Also, through the influence of your example, they will begin making better choices for themselves.  They will recognize that you really are there to help them and they will accept the help, because they care enough about themselves to do it.

  

Love your way into great teaching experiences and spectacular student performance.
