    How long does it usually take from you as a teacher to warm up for the lesson in every session?

    That's a good question. Some are natural speakers who can segue into the topics with ease while others start out a little vague then build up as time goes on. One of my favorite teachers always started the class very soft spoken and reserved. By the end of the class, they were very eccentric and loud.

      That is actually a very good warming up technique. Sometimes too much talking in the first five minutes of the class can distract the students rather than grabbing their attention.

    When I was an undergraduate student, the professors who had the greatest impact on me were very dramatic in the classroom. (By the way, they never sat down when they taught.) They were passionate about their subject matter and were a sharp contrast to other professors who spoke in monotone and were simply b-o-r-i-n-g.

    As a public school teacher, I adopted the approach of the university professors who I admired the most. I maintained a very dramatic approach in the classroom when I taught math or any other subject. I never sat down either.

    With the exception of my methods of teaching course, the teacher education courses that I took for certification were a complete waste. I learned the most from on-the-job training.

    I was also very dedicated to spending time at home preparing for my classes for the following day. In the Philadelphia public schools, teachers were given two “prep periods” each day. However, no classroom prep was ever accomplished. Instead, we sat around drinking coffee and complaining about our problem students or who got a pink slip, who had to go to the isolation room, or who got a three day suspension for bad behavior.

    I’m glad that I has the opportunity to teach in Philadelphia as opposed to elsewhere. I’m also very grateful that I didn’t end up teaching in Erie (PA) because I had to get out of that dreary town once and never go back. Oh yes, I’ve also met quite a few people over the years who got out of Erie and never ever regretted it either.

      You have great experience to be honest. Students are usually Excellent in subjects they love. I feel the teacher has a huge role in making his or her students get attracted to the course. The way you teach and inspire the students can make it easier for you and them to get the best results by the end of the year.
      Best of luck.
