Using improved technology--learning more about it and using it more in class.
I forget dates and event but trying to remember by revising.
Patience learning to use go the last mile with a person to help them improve.
My greatest weakness as a teacher is keeping students engaged and excited without veering too far off topic in open classroom discussions or student questions.
Staying focused on the task at hand and not deviating from it or not finishing it fully. I am sometimes a sporadic thinker losing focus on the main objective which is a weakness of mine I see a new idea and before I fully finish the other I move on to the next sometimes. What I have done to work on this is improve my time management, create an action list of things to accomplish in an order that shows the most pressing things first. This has allowed me to be more on task while also lessening the stress level of the activities I have engaged in.
My greatest weakness is my inability to settle for failure. In a increasingly diverse world, we must be realistic and admit that there will be challenges with students that will not be rectified or turned into success stories. I have had to learn the hard way that is the case, and while I am still working on this, I have discovered that there is a defined boundary that I will need to identify in order to not exhaust myself in an unrectifiable situation.
