Rules for Teachers

Posted by:

Leave school at school. Don’t take things out on your family and friends.

Don’t take misbehavior personally. This helps nothing, and almost always produces wrong answers.

Let things go. It’s not your job to police the world.

Laugh a lot. It’s hard to get burnt out if you’re happy.

Don’t be afraid to give a student a break, but don’t be a fool. Students should know that breaks now lead to higher expectations later.

Listen to advice from administrators and colleagues. They probably mean no harm. But there is a difference between advice and attack.

At least a couple of days a week, go to the cafeteria and lunch with students.

Treating students like they’re humans has amazing benefits.
