The personal learning network for educators

An article was referred to me via Twitter over the Thanksgiving break by Corey Haley titled "Caring+Intervention+Monitoring+Patience" bit.ly/rG7uOII I loved reading this because it reminded me of why I do my job and the best tool to use while doing my job: Caring and Patience. A good teacher always teaches with interventions already in place and we monitor those students.  However, we always have students that no matter how much we care, monitor, or intervene, it just isn't working! We all know there is an alternative to caring, and we teach with a few of these people everyday. There are alternatives to interventions and monitoring and that is to just not to do it and give up. But what about patience?  We are patient every day in almost everything we do.  We are patient while taking roll and patient during class assignments. Even the worst teachers have a little patience while doing their job. An alternative to patience is not an option, and if you are a teacher incapable of being patient, you should find a new career.  A better way to pose the question is, "What is the solution when our patience is running thin because our caring, interventions, and monitoring aren't working?"
