Sorry I have been away for a while – I was preparing for my TEDx talk at TEDXDongdaemun (Get Real! - A TEDx Talk by Joshua Wedlock). The talk, which took place on September 9th, was based on almost two decades’ worth of experience either helping people get fit or learn English.
The thing I wanted to share with you from this experience is really very simple – never stop challenging yourself.
As teachers we often encourage our students to grow, to try new things, to take on new challenges, but when was the last time you took on a new challenge or pushed yourself a little out of your comfort zone?
As we all know, teachers can often teach best by leading by example – so no matter what that challenge is I dare you to embrace it. Embracing the challenge will help show your students that you are also trying to learn and grow.
But I did it! (Go me!)
Anyway, I will add the link as soon as it becomes available on YouTube or the TED website.
Thanks for reading,
Keep English Real!
