What I Wish My Professors Had Told Me
Collins, Jennifer
Educational Leadership, v73 n8 p78-80 May 2016
What do you wish your undergraduate professors told you before you ever set foot in a classroom? Jennifer Collins, one such professor who prepares pre-service teachers, has a list of six "truths" she shares with her students. In this article, Collins outlines those pieces of advice, which include understanding your larger purpose, becoming accustomed to wearing the many hats of a teacher, keeping class pictures to file in your "why I love teaching" box, dismissing the notion of perfect lessons, putting kids before content, and remembering your purpose when times get rough.
