One day teacher of English A said to teacher of English B, “One positive thing you have and perhaps don’t notice it, is that you try to arrive to school in time, then you head for the classroom, before your students have arrived, and sit and revise your notes, etc. When young students are arriving they say ‘Hi’ or ‘Good morning’ and you respond with a nice reply and smile. All this creates a nice atmosphere – politeness and kindness, also work and setting a good example by you – that makes a warm starting.
In teens’ case, they’re more serious or something like they don’t want any ‘special’ treatment. Nevertheless they do expect certain welcome and treating them as already-grown people. They feel insecure but like them to be considered as ‘someone’.” / Photo from: excelined org
