News from Head of Early Years Centre, Michelle Stevens

“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.” -

William Ward

Dear All,

I wish to express my sincere appreciation to those parents who took the time to attend one of the parent forums these past two weeks. It is always beneficial to receive feedback from parents so that we can continue to improve the provision at Dąbrowskiego, our early years centre. In conversation with parents during the forums, they have expressed their pleasure and appreciation for the excellent job our teachers do at Dabrowskiego.

It made me reflect on “What makes a great teacher?” Being a teacher in the 21st Century is a very challenging task. It demands a broad knowledge of subject matter, enthusiasm, a caring attitude and a love of learning. It is essential to possess knowledge of positive discipline and classroom management techniques, having an ongoing desire to up skill with modern technology tools that are ever-changing and an intrinsic desire to make a difference in the lives of young people.

I am in in my 22nd year of working in education and I have worked with some great teachers during that time. When I think of the really great teachers,  they all have the following attributes:
-A great teacher respects students. In a great teacher’s classroom, each student’s ideas and opinions are valued. Students feel safe to express their feelings and learn to respect and listen to others.

-A great teacher creates a sense of community and belonging in the classroom.

-A great teacher is warm, accessible, enthusiastic and caring. This person is approachable, not only to students, but to everyone in the school community.

-A great teacher sets high expectations for all students. This teacher realises that the expectations they have for their students greatly affect their achievement; they know that students generally give to teachers as much or as little as is expected of them.

-A great teacher has their own love of learning and inspires students with their passion for education and for the subjects they teach. They attend regular professional training to stay up to date with changing educational practices and learn how to use the latest technological resources. They have no fears of learning new strategies or incorporating new technologies into their lessons.

I am very happy to say that Dąbrowskiego is full of great teachers and wish to compliment them on their commitment to the students in their care.

Have an enjoyable weekend.

Michelle Stevens
