As teachers, it can feel a lonely experience. I know there are many days when you enter the school in the morning, teach class-after-class, barely have a moment for a break, and leave in the evening without interacting with another adult. This means that all teachers can do to improve their own teaching is to reflect on their lesson plans and monitor the learning of the students in the classroom. Although the importance of this should not be underestimated, it is not the only way to develop professionally.
There are therefore many benefits to being part of a community. A professional community of teachers that can share their ideas of pedagogy provides a safe space to grow, learn and try new strategies in the classroom.
In my view, Teach 2030 is the best community for self-motivation to work in the educational field, as well as motivating fellow teachers to improve themselves.Humyra Anjum Maliha, one of our Teach2030 Ambassadors and a teacher in Bangladesh
Here at Teach2030, there are many ways to join our community.
These workshops run 3pm on the final Wednesday of every month. This month’s will be co-hosted by James Carbah, our Liberian Teach2030 Ambassador. The topic will be ‘No-Hands-Up’. This strategy aims to engage your students in their learning. After the live, 15-minute event, you will receive post-event materials, which help guide you to implement the strategy discussed into your classroom. To sign up for the next event, click here.
