You’d hope that the brilliant Angela Maiers’ views on teaching was the norm, but unfortunately the modern approach to teaching is quite the opposite. We are taught to concentrate solely on the academic side of teaching – we are to care about what and how we teach rather than whom we teach. We are taught that smiling can be a sign of weakness for a teacher and any interest in the hobbies or interests of our students is a show of friendship (and teachers are not their students’ friends).
I wish all teachers broke away from that thinking and instead converted to the Angela Maiers approach. I love it when teachers express the very ideas that underpin my own teaching philosophy. Please watch this clip and tell me what you think.
