How to keep a teacher motivated?

Well, let's start saying that teaching is not the easiest job in the world..When I have one to one or group lessons I can't help taking everything personally, being a teacher is not just a job, you put everything you have to be able to give to your students "something".

Lizzie Pinard - Staying motivated: a case study

Sustainable and long-term development is an ideal that all professional teachers aspire to. The ability to stay motivated and be a reflective practitioner is what makes the job we do as teachers more rewarding. Does your school or institution recognise this and what support are you given to develop - financial or otherwise? What systems are in place to ensure that development happens without being intrusive?

An introductory programme to introduce classroom action research for forty teachers including ten ELT teachers was done by me at Nattandiya teacher Centre in North Western province Sri Lanka. The main purpose is to bring reflective practices to classroom teaching and find solutions to educational problems the teachers face in the teaching learning process in the country.

Rachael Roberts - Action research

What exactly is action research?

Action research is one of those terms that many people have heard of, but that nonetheless remains a bit of a mystery.
