Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

The 15 Don'ts of Mentally-Strong Teachers

The strongest people on earth are not the physically- strong, but the mentally strong people. They have such a great positive mental attitude that enables them to keep moving even when there are supposedly clear reasons why they should go back. They believe that ‘tough times never last, but tough people do’, in the words of Dr Robert Schuller.

Interesting enough, classroom teachers have the roughest path to walk through in life; hence the need for mental strength to beat the tide. Think of the challenges from:

  • ·        The government
  • ·        The directors or school owners (in the case of Private school)

  • ·        The parents

  • ·        The pupils/students they teach

  • ·        The society around them

  • ·        Their colleagues etc

Meanwhile, as against a popular opinion, these set of great minds are known for what they do not practice, rather than what they practice. For them, there are 15 of those things they never practice. Let’s go:

Waste time feeling sorry for themselves:
That is the last thing they do-self pity. They posses such a strong positive attitude that they believe that ‘even though you fall, you will rise again; though you’re sick, you shall be healed; though you’re rejected and jeered today, you shall be accepted and cheered tomorrow; though you were poor, you shall become rich; though you were nearly a dead man, after all, you shall live again: for after all these Job lived’ (Brochisabez). To them, all is well; the future is secured.
You’ve got to receive insult from parents. You’ve got to be despised by the kids you teach; you’ve got to receive that unwarranted query or sack letter from your boss, and all what’s not.
What do you do then? Walk dejectedly like a drowned man? No! You’ve got a better future to do better things as long as your brain has not expired.

Give away power:

The mentally-strong people never surrender their power in any compromised or coaxed deal. They do not sacrifice the brighter tomorrow on the altar of a ‘begging’ today. They never surrender power either to friends or foes, forces or fantasies. They understand the importance of holding on.

You don’t surrender power even to your boss. Don’t make yourself look too beggarly and foolish before your boss, the men from the ministry or that powerful parent. If you do that, you’ve betrayed your future.

Shy away from necessary change:

They are not the overtly rigid-principled and conventional-minded persons who loath change like leprosy. They understand when change is necessary, and follow the path of least resistance to make those necessary changes in their lives and situations. To them, the world is changing, why not you?

It can even be the need to change your job; to embrace new strategy and technology for teaching or to align with change management demand in your organization. Great teachers never shy away from such necessary change.

Waste energy on things they cannot control:

Mentally-strong people never employ their brain and mind power on self-destructive activities like worry and anxiety over situations they could not control. They are rather creative; thinking of the best solutions to solve their problems and that of others, where need be.

Do you kill yourself when that child refuses to learn? What you rather do is to think of better ways within your reach to help that kid, but never to harm yourself in any way. If you really know what you’re doing, you can always defend yourself before parents and your director.

Worry about pleasing others:

Never! They are not popular-opinionated persons, who go about looking for a pat on the back from everybody. They take a step; make a decision they feel is right and necessary at any point in time, without minding whose ox is gored.

Be sure they are not breaking organizational rules. They rather stand for what is right, voice out their professional opinions whenever need be.

This does not give you license to hurt parents, pupils and your boss out of a vengeful spirit.

Fear taking calculated risks:

The jelly fish, risk- averse fellows of this world would never take a risk, in spite of its potential returns. But that is not the mentally strong people. They understand that life itself is risk, and so takes the bull by the horn whenever such opportunity comes up to take a returnable risks. And even if the game turns bad, they beat their chest and forge ahead; not crying over spilled milk, hoping tomorrow would be a good day. They have learnt the lesson on how best to do it, and that’s enough.

Do you need to try out that new technology that can make your work more effective? Do you feel it’s time to run your own school? The initial hiccups could be there, but you’ve got to try it out any way. That’s what makes you a tough-minded teacher.

Dwell on the past:

The mentally-strong persons are progressive-minded people. They never dwell on the past, especially the ugly past of failures and adversity. They find it difficult keeping an archive of past events, as they feel that it portrays a backward mentality.
Guess your fellows are reminding you of how you blew it the first time you handled a classroom or made your first post as a blogger! Does that make you feel inferior or insecured? It should not at all. You’re already an expert in the game now and still improving- the ugly past should no longer strangle you.

Make the same mistake repeatedly:

While they may have fallen over and over again, mentally-strong people easily learn from their mistakes and move on to correct it. They don’t back out from trying new things even in areas they’ve fallen before, but be sure they won’t repeat their mistakes. That is what makes them champions- never quit, learn!

You’re a mediocre if you keep repeating that mistake after months and years. You’ve got to learn from your mistakes, make necessary corrections and move on for a better performance.

Give up after initial failure:

Champions never do either. To these great minds, failure is not final. To them, stumbling block is a stepping stone to success. Hence, they neither fear failure nor the tendency of failing again. They learn as they fail, until they perfect.

I remember hearing Ms Rhoda of ‘The Learning Craft’ narrating of how she still laugh over her first post as a blogger. The whole thing was messed up, but today, that is now history. The same was my experience both as a blogger and an author. Imagine, if Ms Rhoda had given up at the instance of initial failure. So, you get it right?

Resent other people’s success:

Mentally-strong people have no inferiority complex. They believe that they are embodiments of greatness, ready to explode. Hence, there is no room for resenting others’ success, or being jealous over it. They respect others and appreciate what they have achieved too.

We don’t need competition, but collaboration. Until you reason this way, you’re not yet a mentally-strong teacher, and be sure you’re going nowhere. Uniqueness defines whom you are as well as brings out the best of you.

Fear ‘alone time’:

‘Alone time’ is the time when friends and families seem to desert us, leaving us to carry our crosses alone. It is at such a time, many poor-minded fellows usually begin to have resentment against God and man, and at worst, contemplate suicide with a line of ‘nobody cares for me; I’m gone’! But the mentally-strong persons at such a time, gets stronger. For them, it is a season of preparation for greatness- it does not scare them.

Do you know that ‘alone time’ can offer you the best opportunity to discover yourself and your potentials for greatness? So, you don’t need to be afraid of being left ‘alone’ at any point of your life. That can possibly be the best period of your life.

Feel the world owe them anything:

They never feel that way. They believe in self effort. They believe we all need to make contributions to our society general wellbeing. When those who are supposedly in position of helping them, fails in that responsibility, they don’t show aggression or malice over that. They easily acknowledge that the neighbour next door does not actually owe them anything. They put more of their confidence and hope in God and in their God-endowed potentials.

When you hear these lily-livered folks bemoan disappointments and embarrassment they experienced in the hands of friends and family, you weep over their own self-disappointing mentality.  

You’ve got to be in charge of your life and destiny. The world will never hand you a rose flower. Stand up and stand out!

Keep unforgiving spirit:

The mentally strong people are so matured in mind as to understand the principle of releasing others to release one. They easily forgive and forbear offenders, not just for the sake of the offender, but for their own sakes, so that they can move on without distractions.

Keeping unforgiving spirit, nursing the wounds of past offences can only aggravate your problems and hinder you from seeing the bright future before you. As a school teacher, do you know that the school owner who fired you ignobly today can refer to your school in the future for solution! But can that be possible if you’re still licking the old wounds and refuse to move on?

Feel insecure over a perceived rival:

Inferior men are not secured. They are even afraid of their shadows, let alone a perceived rival. Then in other to keep what they feel belong to them, they seek for ways to run others down as well as cut them down. This is what the mentally strong people never do. To them, life is not a competition, but a community where every person is expected to contribute his own quota for general well-being. So what is the fuss about others’ achievement!

Do you feel insecure over the seeming threat posed by others’ achievements, positions and potentials? If your answer is yes, you have got a lot of work to do on yourself. Every man is uniquely made by God. Whatever others have can never limit the potentials that are very unique with you. What you do right now may not be approved yet, but be sure if you continue to be original, sometime, somewhere you’ll be a celebrity. Free your mind; feel secure, you have nothing to lose.

Expect immediate results:

The mentally strong people believe in hardwork and legitimate means of earning a living. They never go for compromised short cuts to achieve immediate success that might taste bitter tomorrow. They understand that it takes quality time and commitment to achieve true success. They focus in achieving an enduring result that guarantees a bright and beautiful future for themselves and others. They are not in a hurry to get up there, being assured they would definitely get them.

This is what makes the difference between winners and losers in life. Teachers with winning mentality understand that it may take time to make that child come up academically, yet they keep applying that proven principle until they achieve results; while the weaklings among us embrace an idea today and jettison it tomorrow, complaining that it can’t work.

Hope you won’t abandon that blogging you have just started because to you, you can’t see it getting you the desired result!


Teachers can do well in life and in their profession if they develop a strong mental attitude towards career challenges and societal demands. Let this post be a springboard to success.

Best wishes!
