One of the most important things for teachers and administrators to do is to focus
on working in their strengths(whenever possible). Some of these are easier than others, but they all help teachers reach their full potential. This can be done in a few different ways:
*Figure out the best subject for you to teach. This one may seem obvious, but some teachers may be spread too thin. I taught social studies my first year but found out quickly that I was much better suited for math.
*Figure out the best age for you to teach. I believe that every teacher has two age ranges to teach that fits them best. If you are best cut out for 2nd and 3rd grade and you are teaching 7th, you probably aren’t reaching your full potential.
*Figure out if you prefer honors or non-honors type classes. Some teachers love teaching honors classes, some teachers hate it.
*Ask your teachers what their preferences are. Administrators would be wise to think of their teachers like they are running a business, or even sports team. The more your teachers are in their strengths, the better they will perform for you. Finding out what your teachers prefer in big and small areas can be very beneficial. Some possibilities:
Of course, you can’t always have everything just how you want it. The closer you get to working
in your strengths, however, the more productive you will be.
