7.8 That Teacher Magic


Thoughts on That Teacher Magic

It’s one part science and one part art.

It’s that sixth sense that helps you hand a student just the right book, that makes them a reader for life.

It’s that one time you interrupt your own lesson, because everyone needs a dance break.

It’s every time you slow down to listen to a student’s story, that makes them feel important.

Yes, students need curriculum and tools and technology and assessments and grades and and and, it doesn’t have the power to transform without that teacher magic.
