Teaching- Presence 2

Teaching is not an easy activity. As teachers, we are constantly “on”, holding the space for the betterment and evolvement of all.  Given these challenges, the difficulty of teaching only increases when we are not present enough to be effective.  Presence is how we show up, and if we do not show up in the best way possible, how can we expect to have a good classroom experience?  Presence is how we mold and shape our classroom environments.  Without Presence, we are “there” but not really “there”, and in this, we operate with limited power.

How much of your success as a teacher depends on your state of Presence or how you show up? How may a lack of Presence contribute to your failures as a teacher?

What happens to your students when you show up to teach without a positive state of Presence?
