Put Education Week's audience to
work for you! Winning strategies for
your recruitment efforts include:
We've all seen them on the news, Facebook,
Youtube, and sprawled across the internet...
the teacher in the midst of a verbal assault on
a student or the class. Every week there is a
new one. Maybe I should start a video internet
channel called "Teachers Gone Wild". That's
exactly what these videos look like, a teacher
who has totally lost their professional filter and
decided to as the young people say, "Do the
Most". In a day in age, where every encounter and every discussion has the potential of
being taped teachers need to become more
aware of how these situations escalate and can
cost you your job.
Please know that most of the time, there is a
warning that occurs before the students go to
recording what happens in the classroom with
a teacher. This progression is very clear and
many teachers ignore it. Now, this is not referring to when a fight breaks out in the classroom. So here are a few warnings signs that
you will be cast in their upcoming production.
Warning Example #1: Students start saying
to you "Mr. Smith, you can't say that to us"
or "Mr. Smith why are you talking to her like
that" The truth is if they have to ask you the
question or say that to you, there is a problem.
I know that at times students can challenge
us by not doing exactly what we ask, when
we ask them to do it. Looking at how you approach that child makes a difference. No one
wants to be embarrassed in public and neither
does a child. Your approach to communication
Warning Example #2: When you say to them
"Tell the administration, I don't care! They're
not going to do anything to me anyway" Everyone loves a great challenge, even children.
You've opened the door to that recording.
You might as well say, "Mr. DeMille, I'm ready
for my close-up." You are a professional, and
the students have an expectation that you will
be one, even when you are upset. I know the
standards are high, but we hold our students
to high standards and so we must live up to
* 24/7 Web-based print and online ad placement at http://recruit.topschooljobs.org
* Cross-posting to TopSchoolJobs.org from
your Web site or Applicant Tracking System
* Special bulk pricing for cost-effective
recruitment throughout the school year
* E-mail blasts and banner ads to fill your
hiring pools and promote your job fairs
Warning Example #3: When HR or the school
administration speaks with you regarding
student or parent complaints regarding your
class. One of the worst things for an educator to do is to go back to their classroom and
broadcast about that conversation. This normally sounds like, "You thought you had me by
going and snitching"...
