Students who become teachers

The above is a bit of an oxymoron at first sight,
yet, in fact, it is usually quite logical.

Before becoming teachers
most were first students

There is a problem as I see it, with many teachers, and I have to say this is true in France; most teachers teach a subject that they are good at.

So why is that a problem?

Well it make them less likely to understand why their student may be having a problems with something that for them is as clear as crystal

I consider that fact the learning French, i.e. a foreign language, was my worst subject at school helps me to be a better teacher of English as a foreign language. I know the problems that my students, be they students or adult learners might be suffering from, because I had those difficulties too.

Which takes me to sophrology.

Well, if the worst students make the best teachers, I am going to be wonderful! it is taking me along time to truly accept some things, and I am learning the hard way that the only way for it to work is to do it!

So, the stress management is doing along not too badly.

And now to put my money where my mouth is, and out in the open....

Next objective

Weight management
I may not be quite at the start, however, not yet at the current, although definitely hoping for the goal.

Once I have achieved this, and I shall, then I can pass that hard won knowledge onto others....hopefully!
