Check out this video on You Tube:

Do you know what behaviours or actions are acceptable being a teaching professional?  Do teachers need to be on their ‘best’ behaviour after hours, in public, and in their private life?  Does being drunk in public, speeding, drinking and driving, voilence, images on social media, would these actions impact our judgements of our teachers? What if our teachers are expectional professionals at the work place, students excel in thier subject and speak highly of their teacher, do we still judge the teacher? do have the right to judge them?

That global conversation is an extremely powerful platform for spreading information and awareness about social causes and issues. That’s one of the reasons charities can benefit so greatly from being active on social media channels. But you can also do a lot to help your favorite charity or causes you are passionate about through social media.”

weekly contribution

It’s hard to ignore how much our lives have been shaped by social media.  Where did people show off their new shoes before Twitter? How did people organize parties with their friends before Facebook? How did others find out about your interests before Pinterest? Here lies a common thread, learning, sharing, and relearning.

When I read this article from Abbotsford news, it brought tears to my eyes. The bond between a teacher and student is special.  Not all teacher goes above and beyond to ensure a positive learning environment, and allowing a child to feel comfortable at school.  but the ones that do, they will be remembered forever. A teachers faith in a student gives the student that boost of confidence that they need to succeed.

“One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings.  The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.” Carl Jung
