Teaching Tips #1 - Teach Your Passion
We are starting a blog series for childbirth educators called "Teaching Tips." We will be offering regular articles with helpful resources, inspiring insights and new teaching ideas to benefit new and experienced childbirth educators alike. Subscribe to our blog or search for all of our teaching ideas on the right.
Teach Your Passion
This is our number one Teaching Tip because it is so important. When you are passionate about something, you go above and beyond, you learn all that you can, share your passions with others and make a difference in people's lives. Passion attracts people, it inspires learning and it can be infectious. Passion is more than simple enthusiasm; it is a drive to deeply understand your teaching topics, to thoughtfully plan your classes and to sincerely care about the needs of your students.
Teaching requires passion in order to truly reach parents and inspire them to seek the best for themselves and their babies. If you find that you are lacking passion for your work, change what you teach or how you teach it, take time to recharge, or learn something new and inspiring. We hope our Teaching Tips series will help, too!
We want to hear from you: what are you passionate about and what do you do if you find your passion waning? One commenter will be selected to receive a special gift from Plumtree Baby.
