Charles Butt Scholar Alum, UT College of Education
As the 2020-21 school year came to an end, ten Charles Butt Scholar alumni in their first years as Texas teachers shared their learnings and reflections with us. The stories, struggles, and triumphs showcased in this Q&A portfolio provide an honest look at what it’s like to be a new teacher.
A I am teaching in person full-time.
A I have learned to listen to students in times of need and to have patience when things aren’t going as planned.
A I had difficulties with my students this year, but I overcame it by listening to them and finding my voice as an assertive, and fair teacher.
A I have seen how families can come together to ensure their students learn the best to their ability.
A Integrating more technology into our lessons.
A Be patient, and if you feel something needs to change, act on it, go with your gut. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and find that teacher voice. Show kindness always and come in every day with a clean slate.
A My greatest lesson was learning how to effectively manage teaching and create engaging lessons to encourage students to take control of their learning experience. I learned teachers and students are very resilient!
