Teaching, as all teachers will agree, is not a walk in the park. Teachers need to constantly be on the top of their game and keep improving their skills. Imparting education to a group of individuals is never easy and teachers need to keep a few “cards” up their sleeves to ensure that they have all the help they need.
If you remember, growing up, each and every kid had a collection of cards, be it baseball, wrestling or Pokemon cards. Collecting, trading and playing with these cards were the highlight of many a child’s day. Having the best cards often resulted in being the winner at the end of the game.
Some cards were wanted and coveted by all. These cards represented the best in their fields. Each card had its own unique strength which provided a benefit for the person holding onto it.
Today, teachers can get these special “cards” by following teachers and educators on twitter; these are experts in their fields and can offer a lot to you. Following their steps, learning from their experiences and just taking what they have to offer, will help you be at the top of your game.
