Do You Wonder What Students Remember About Teachers?
Have you ever asked yourself what students remember about teachers? If you guessed it wasn't the worksheets, test scores, and handouts, then you guessed right. I found an infographic on Twitter that lists the 10 things students remember about teachers and wanted to share it with you. I watch social media closely and it's my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.
Dr. Anael Alston shared an infographic called “What Students Remember Most About Teachers” on his personal Twitter account. Sylvia Duckworth created the infographic based on ideas from Lori Gard. The infographic lists the 10 things students remember most about teachers. Unsurprisingly, the list doesn't include things like what the teacher taught or assigned, but rather include such qualitative elements as to how the teacher treated their students. In the end, students value a teacher who treats them like an individual human being and not a walking grade. So if you're ever having a conflict with a student, just remember that a little communication can go a long way.
