Shy and strange faces became smiley and friendly and students started to treat me warmly now. They greet me and spy at me every time they go across our yard.
“We are happy in your class as we play a lot of games related with the lesson and we talk and laugh without stress,” said a student.
I've been teaching for about two weeks here and can already see some differences in the students that I never saw before. The students now come to class on time, are actively involved in the lesson and are willing to learn in my class.
Although some students lack basic English, they are now brave enough to read sentences by themselves in the class. Before, they were shy, and afraid to stand up and read aloud. The students are also good at group work. They are very competitive and focused when assigned work.
As I know their English is not as good as students at REC, I teach them slowly and repeatedly so that they do not feel tired or stressed about the lessons like in their other teachers' classes. Also, I have to consider the parents' view and their possible acceptance of our teaching methods because they might think that we are just playing in the class.
Having more democracy in the class helps the students feel comfortable and secure with their teachers. I want them to grow bravely and actively. I want the students to feel free to talk to me and question me about the lesson. As my students are now more active and energetic in class, they need a livelier learning environment to help them find their own strengths.
