Owning the classroom

4 months later, I feel much more comfortable at Kang Chiao.

It’s extremely gratifying seeing how I’ve progressed as a teacher over the past four months, and see the challenges I’ve overcome. Owning the classroom is so important. As a teacher, classroom is my arena. I set the pace and everything else that goes with it. I am in charge. Of course I need to mindful about empathy, consistency, relationship, authenticity and all that good stuff. But without feeling and being in control, everything else falls apart. I suppose the same wisdom can be applied in life.

Just an update on the more technical side of my teaching. Prezi is a great tool. Another website useful for vocabulary learning is quizlet
