How can you be an “Affective” Manager?

Education is made accessible!

The right to free Basic Education is being tailored-fit to Filipinos who do not have a chance to attend and finish formal basic education from Grades 1-6 and Years 1-4 due to various distinct reasons through the Alternative Learning System

#21st Century #education #alternatives #ALS #learning #dropouts #liberate
 Change. Shift.Cure.

Such a great HOPE … supposedly?!?

Every bit of chance, yet waiting for one and all to just grab!

Among the many countries in the world who believe in Survival, the Philippines could indeed stand out with its  different Modes of Education from Non-Formal to Formal Theoretical Orientations. The Current Trends which lay down the many Alternatives and array of choices for various age groups: youth and adults are but blessings that abound elsewhere.

Chances and opportunities are just waiting to liberate us — to make us “level up” from whatever stage or status in life we’re in.

–Yet, how much are we still willing to learn?

— why are there still some who fail to GRIP FOR SURVIVAL?

— why do some, still plead for re-cure while crying over some state of “DEPRIVATION”?

What could have been wrong? … what else remains to be wrong?

What else should we beseech to accomplish the Philippine [Education for All] EFA 2015 National Action Plan entitled “Functionally Literate Filipinos, An Educated Nation.”?

How could FUNCTIONALITY be possible in our nation?  What is your COMMITMENT?

We don’t actually need to be an ALS Coach/Teacher to do something. We should not stop where the semester ended. What purpose or mission do you see then to be an “AFFECTIVE MANAGER in the 21st CENTURY”? 

Why “affective”?

  1. It says that developing the child fully is not the sole responsibility of the teacher.It should be in common goals of the parents and the teachers for the children to achieved the best for them.In addition, learners are different from each other.Learning styles vary too according to their learning capabilities.Pupils have their own stories before they got into school.Some stories are interesting and some are unpleasant.If we will just ask them or talk to them, we will be able to know them better. As teacher, I observed that this young generation is really indifferent in many aspects. Behavior speaks more of the problems nowadays.This is what we the teachers are struggling to be able to direct these young people. These are just the things that I can do to become an “AFFECTIVE MANAGER”.First, I really would like to help my pupils to become responsible.Setting as role model to them too.That means I have to foster right and proper discipline. I will not get tired of helping them to give right education through updated curriculum, skills and experiences.Attending seminars or training that would improve my teaching ability will also help in a way that I could actually apply these learnings to my pupils.We the teachers are the front liners of these young people and whatever made these people are is the reflection of ours.

  2. An affective manager affects people based on what he does. As a Department Head, if you respect your teacher’s values and beliefs, respect is what you will get in return. In my own experience, I would always ask them to tell me what’s going on, so that I would understand their predicament. If I can do something about their problem/s, we will work it out together so that it will not affect their performance. If they are family-oriented, give them time for their family. The best example for this is during the distribution of teachers’ loads. It has been my practice to ask them the time that would be convenient for them and in return I wouldn’t have the problem of their coming to school late because I know that they already did their responsibilities at home and to their families.
    In all the good things that your teacher’s do, always appreciate them and in things that turned out to be not so good, encourage them to do better next time. It has never been my practice to blame my teachers, instead I would tell them that there is always a room for improvement. Always set deadlines and explain how important it is to meet deadlines. Never play favorites with your teachers. Always delegate the work so that everyone is involved. All these should not just be on paper only. Everything that you want to do, show them how to do it. Never belittle your teachers too. That is why you are called an affective manager because you are not just the boss but you affect your teachers by showing them what to do and set yourself as the best example to them thru your positive attitude.

  3. “AFFECTIVE MANAGER in the 21st CENTURY”
    An “effective” manager takes responsibility for ensuring that each individual within his department succeeds and that the team or business unit achieves results. Successful managers require both talent and skill. Managerial skills can be developed through training, mentoring, and experience. But if a manager is void of natural talent, then the odds that he will be successful diminish significantly. Being an effective manager has something to do with AFFECTIVE MANAGER. How can we be an effective manager if we don’t know the qualities of being an Affective Manager. Somehow we should be a teacher having an empathy to our learners, it can be a great help to know on how can you inculcate to them the learning’s that you want to impart on them. All we want is to help them achieve the dreams they have. We can be a great part to them by having a positive altitude, try to be patient and always put their shoes on yours. Continue grabbing some points of knowledge and always share them. It’s hard to change somebody but it should start from us. We should always be their role model. If we strive to be a blessing’s to other it will be true that there will be no one left behind. Try to reach the less fortunate, be an open window to them. Show our compassion and our love and we will be a manager having an affection but being effective an one, We should always be reminded with the Goal of EFA which is “provide basic education for all & Universal Adult Functional Literacy.” I think with this goal, everything will follows from literacy to economic growth. Our development really depends on our education, When a country is surrounded by educated people having the right attitude our economy will boom. If there will be someone who will be left behind I think there is something to do with their attitude. If you have the ambitions and dreams go on, we teachers will always be here for all of you, those who wants to learn. Live and love. Let us take this opportunity for our selves. LEARN, LIVE AND LOVE can be and AFFECTIVE MANAGER.

  5. as an affective manager, you are concern to the feelings or emotions of your subordinates. They should feel you care for them and it leads to a good relationship. “The best teachers teach from the HEART, not from the book.”

  6. As for me, to be an affective teacher, we must have an EMPHATY towards our students. In that way, we may be able to understand them, their behavior and predicaments. When we put ourselves on their shoes, we may be able to reach out. If our students feel that we are sincere in helping them they may be able to open up and tell us their problems. Sometimes students are afraid to talk, not able to express their feelings because we teachers are indifferent. When we have emphaty, we teach with passion, respect and dedication.

  8. Affective managers should strive to build personal relationships with their teams. Our stakeholders are more likely to exceed expectations when they trust their manager. When managers establish a relationship with stakeholders,the parents,teachers and the students , it builds trust and they feel valued. Valued stakeholders are more willing to get the job done right and apply extra effort when needed.

  9. Being a teacher gives a sign that it is a criterion that we received such vocation through the people around us who have the means, in little way possible, to help us. Yet, we cannot get out of reality that there are some people who cannot achieve what they desire in their lives. Following all the ideas, experiences, and vistas shared, us people who are lucky to be bestowed with such stature as what we are now must reach out. We tend to take care but how long do we go? We tend to philosophize things and situations yet how far can we act? Being a teacher shows action. We need to act even if we are tired, even if sometimes the road is narrow and if sometimes things just do not give meaning at all.. We are all evangelizers of hope. We can enact change. Change that can really affect their lives. Affection comes from the heart and we cannot deny that. As actions flow from what we feel sometimes, may those actions be a service to the students. Genuine service that we can really say even if we are formal or non formal, the matter is base, we affect by loving, we affect by acting, we affect by changing their lives by aiding them reach their dreams in life.

    How to be an affective manager?
    Being an affective manager is a great task to be accomplish. First we are in doubt, but I believe that if we really care, we can make it! Yes we can. Therefore, in able for me to be an affective manager in the 21st Century I develop 7 keys:
    1. Heart -This is the first thing that we should have! Love will always the reason why we want to teach.
    2. Passion/Desire-Teaching without Passion is like a car without fuel. If you don’t have desire/passion in what you are doing you’re just wasting your time your product is like a crap. Therefore I will not limit myself in reaching out my students even though they are in the stage of giving up! My motto this school year is not to drop my students even if it seems like they are giving up!
    3. Consistency-consistency is very important especially in classroom management.
    4. Discipline-the backbone of progress is discipline, therefore teachers should exercise proper decorum.
    5. Good role model-Act what you say, have a word of honor, do what you preach
    6. Physically/Emotionally/spiritually/socially fit- as a teacher you should be a well-rounded person, you should know how to mingle with the different kinds of person, especially, the students, colleagues, and parents.
    • Pray before teaching your students- acknowledging God before you start teaching is the best practice teachers should do.
    • Emotionally stable- Anger and stress management, through acknowledging your weaknesses , you can easily manage your emotions
    And most especially being an educator you are not only educating the child as a whole but the community as well, because when they see changes in their own child their perspective will also change. Change is inventible! I will not allow to be moved by any circumstances in the system but I will do my best to help our country through a community outreach! I will make a difference in my very simple way that is the reason why I will be conducting outreach program in our province this coming summer by giving books, school supplies and feeding program through the help of friends and colleagues.

  12. We can be an affective manager if we know how to manage our emotions and feelings and be able to consider the feelings of the other people.Being a 21st century manager is very challenging .To be affective we must possess good managerial and human skills. As a classroom manager, we encounter different learners with different needs,thats why it is very important for us to be more understanding and extend more of our patience especially when we have students who are slow learners.

  13. “21st Century Educator” is probably the most popular buzzword in today’s education. One cliché question that has been always asked “How do you become an effective 21st Century teacher?” The skills and passion of the teachers to impart knowledge to the students are already there, it is given and they are effective in many ways. More than this, here comes the twist, how about that word “effective” changed to an “AFFECTIVE” …How to be an affective 21st century manager?
    From the word itself, #affective… it uses the heart in teaching the young ones. It embraces not only the use of technologies or cognizant of the rapidly changing technology trends but be willing to extend help to the students not just around the four corner of the classroom but It goes infinity and beyond expectations. As teachers we have the incredible opportunity and power to make a difference in the lives of our students. It is not just teaching the skills and knowledge but also we have the ability and responsibility to teach our students to be compassionate and empathetic members of society. Being an affective one is to be an effective teacher—being a kind and caring. This will give impact to the achievement of students throughout their lives. After all, it is not what you have taught from what is written on the books to be remembered but it is more into how you treat your student well.

  14. A good manager should not only high in IQ, but most importantly he or she is also high in Emotional Quotient. No matter how good the manager is, if he/she does not concern with the feelings of his/her subordinates, the organization might fail. This might be compared with teachers – learners relationship, too.

    If a teacher does not show love, understanding, concern, and other good traits to their learners, tendency is…learners will dislike schooling. So as teachers,we develop our student’s potentials and we always aim to see our students at their own best. Aside from giving them facts and knowledge for them to critically reflect on what is taught; we should not forget that our learners have different life. We do not know their own journey on their respective home. Maybe some of them are living with a happy family but how sure we are that all of them have the same cases. We know for sure that some of them are not. We even don’t know if their home is really a home, so they have their own plight too; with this kind of students that we have the more they need us, right?

    So, as teachers of the 21st century we need to be AFFECTIVE MANAGERS. We should be mentors with heart. Always ready to help them. Somebody who can touch them, feel to them that we are here ready to listen and willing to help them if we can. Henry Adams wrote that ” A teacher affects eternity: he can never tell where his influence stops.”

    Thus, we teachers of the 21st century are not only adept with skills and theories or high in IQ but rather we must also high in EQ and that is for me – who affective managers are.

  15. Just like school heads, for them to produce an effective school they need to be equipped themselves with knowledge or high IQ above their subordinates which they need in leading the school. But having high IQ is not a guarantee that school is effective already, they need to be high also in emotional quotient (EQ). If heads do not have EQ towards their teachers, the organization might fail. This can be associated with the teachers – learners relationship, too.

    We, teachers are considered the heart of the educational process,along with the administrators and other members of the administration and agencies, the success or the failure of the whole educational program depends on us. Since we are in the direct contact among our pupils, much responsibility is at stake with us. We are not only giving them the curriculum they need. Second to their parents, we try our best to molding them to be an upright citizen. So, as teachers we need to show love, understanding, concern and other traits that a teacher should possess, and this I think is what an AFFECTIVE MANAGERS should possess; if we lack with these traits, tendency is… many students will dislike schooling.

    As we are approaching the 21st century, teachers are expected to be more concerned with our students especially that these youths are exposed with different cultures brought about by technology and the environment themselves. Aside from these, our learners have different life.They have their own journey in life. Some of them live with their family happily, good if others do the same. We even don’t know if some of them call their home a home, they have their plight, too. So, as teachers if we have learners who can not follow on what we are asking them to do inside our classroom, let’s try to understand their situation. Let us not condemn them at once, let us try to touch them. Let our words be a light for them. Let us show to them that we are teachers with heart. As Henry Adams says ” A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”

    Thus, if we really like to contribute meaningfully in nation building, let us not be effective but also be affective managers,too.

    How can one be an affective manager? Being one means he is capable of influencing group of people that he is managing by naturally showing the real emotions or arousing emotions. It is roughly synonymous with emotional. It’s used mainly in psychology, where affective conditions is characterized by emotional problems or moods, though it does appear occasionally outside psychology.
    An affective manager has the ability to influence a person, or a group of people or team in the way they think, feel and act. An effective manager has the ability to produce results without having the need to first influence another person. Demanding from himself the same level of professionalism and dedication that he expect from others. If he expects the team to be upbeat and friendly, then he is making sure he is. If he expects written reports to be error free, then he double checks his own work or ask for a second set of eyes. That’s how he will affectively manage his team.❤️❤️❤️

  18. Most leaders generally adhere to one or two preferred styles of leadership with which they feel comfortable. But the challenge is that great leaders have multiple leadership styles in their toolkit, and they are adept at diagnosing situations and using the right leadership styles at the right times.

    There is one element of management that is very importrant and that is leadership. It’s been said often that manager administer, leaders inspire. This is true, but you cannot really be effective unless you do both. Managers must incorporate elements of leadership into their managerial practice. The most important of which is a sense of personal leadership; that is, the feeling that “I can make a positive difference.”
    this thinking must be possessed by all teachers to be more effective in teachinf our students.

    If you want to see the future of education, don’t watch children in the average classroom. Watch children play a video game. You’ll see them engaged, excited, interacting, and learning even if it’s only about how to get to the next level of the game. Because of their immersion in this computerized world, children absorb information differently from their parents. Instead of following information passively from beginning to end as people tend to do with television shows, newspapers, and books …. children interact with the new technologies.

    Schools now have an opportunity to apply the information technologies that are so effective outside the classroom for educational purposes. Taking advantage of these new technologies will require profound changes in the roles of teachers, students, and schools. Instead of being the repository of knowledge, teachers will be guides who help students to navigate through electronically accessible information. They will use the new technologies to build networks with each other, with parents and students, with academic and industrial experts, and with other professionals.

  19. The fundamental basis of the rules that we are implementing right now lies on the idea that human beings have the capability to feel and express emotions. The affective aspect of everyone is enough to be the reason to let us build and formulate decisions that will eventually be for the betterment of a lot. May it be in the terms of work-related avenue, or simply to the personal relationships we have, the ability of anyone to feel strong emotions towards our colleagues is a huge driving force to act upon something. In the same logic, being an affective manager may let us do things that are outside the box and our comfort zones. We are demanded a lot of things that exceed our original work descriptions. Our commitment towards our job should root to the fact that we are entitled to do things that will make others better.

  20. No child should be closed off from the world at the end of their street. But all too often, children end up leading themselves to the path that should not be taken. What could have been wrong when all the chances and opportunities are already generously offered to them by the Department of Education? Why it seems that all is not enough? Are they being deprived of the information, advice, and guidance that they need to make informed decisions that will shape their futures? These questions are like nightmares that keep on haunting the minds of everyone most especially the educators. These sad truths should awaken the mind of every education manager. What the world really needs right now are affective managers.

    Why affective? Because AFFECTIVE MANAGERS are…

    – trailblazers, making a path for others to follow. They, however, inspire their teachers and learners to reach higher, dream bigger, and achieve greater. Perhaps the most important management skill is the ability to provide inspiration to his/her teachers and learners. His/her actions inspire them to dream more, learn more, do more and become more.
    – visionaries with a clear sense of moral purpose.
    – passionate about teaching and learning and show great commitment to children. They take an active interest in their learners’ works – and that of their staff.
    – team-builders. They understand the importance of relationships, empower their staff and learners and show great empathy.
    – optimistic and resilient, remain calm in a crisis and are energetic and positive at all times. They know themselves and have personal strategies so they are able to steady themselves in stormy waters.
    – great persuaders and listeners, adept at describing ‘the story of their school’ to any audience. They are also great motivators.

    Why affective? Because AFFECTIVE MANAGERS can…

    – show great determination, with the willpower and patience to see things through. They are willing to take risks and are steadfast in challenging under-performance or poor behavior.
    – show great judgment, make the right calls and are wise leaders. They involve the whole school community and taking people forward together.
    – transform everyone’s perspective in life. Their mission is to be first in love, first in moral excellence and first in generosity. They don’t work to be served but to be SERVANTS of God.

    AFFECTIVE MANAGERS AFFECT ETERNITY. No one can tell where their influence stops.

    That’s my take. Thank you! 🙂

  21. Why Affective Manager in the 21st Century?

    AFFECTIVE because 21st Century Education needs a teacher that focus and concern in valuing and respecting students attitudes, feelings and beliefs.
    As an affective teacher, academic teaching should go hand in hand with personal and social education because we need to both open the mind and the heart of our students.

    What is my Commitment?

    My commitment is to continue to be a Crane that gives HOPE to my students by creating a learning environment that fosters excellence in teaching and learning. So I can help them access quality education and attain functional levels of literacy, numeracy and essential life skills and strategies to continue to learn throughout their lifetimes.

    HOW CAN YOU BE AN “AFFECTIVE” MANAGER?

    The EFA 2015 National Action Plan entitled “Functionally Literate Filipinos, An Educated Nation” targets 100% literacy rate of the Philippine community within the year, but obviously the fight against illiteracy still goes on and will still go on in the coming years. It is also true that we are yet far from achieving a 100% literacy rate. However, if we look at the past, we certainly have gone very far from where we once started. Right now, we have all the provisions of the law that toss the program up. Though it isn’t much, we have started to allot portion of the budget to cater to the out-of-school learners and the indigenous people in the remote areas. We have nonformal and informal education for the adult learners. We do have open high school and universities to offer more options and get rid of the obstacles that hinder learning. Yes, it is good to evaluate action plans and point out the weaknesses of the system, but I’d like to say that we should use these pieces of information to strengthen the lose strings in the implementation. It is too soon to make a final verdict. We should give the seeds of those efforts enough time to sprout, grow and bear fruit.

    As classroom teachers, I do believe that we don’t have to be an ALS Coach/Teacher to be a part of this humongous task of eradicating illiteracy. It must be everyone’s mission to take part in educating the underprivileged, to create equal opportunities to our learners and to support campaigns that would open the eyes of the less fortunate and create a spark within them that they too can dream big and make these dreams a reality.

    I agree that what we need is an AFFECTIVE TEACHER/MANAGER. The less privileged have lost sight of the shore for a very long time. They have been on a long journey seeking their identity in the society. They need a lighthouse to guide them. They need affective managers/teachers who truly have a heart to reach them out without thinking of anything in exchange.

    In response to this call and as a part of this huge mission, I say yes to the need of having an AFFECTIVE 21st CENTURY MANAGER. I say yes to being an AFFECTIVE manager/teacher because an affective teacher/manager is indeed an effective teacher/manager.

  23. As A TEACHER, to be an affective manager inside the classroom is to have the passion in what you are doing, love, dedication to your profession and the strong desire to teach the young generation. You should be well motivated in your daily work, but keeping in mind that the learners have different learning styles and different lives outside school , and struggles before coming to school. . You should get to know more of them, keeping in touch and has the listening heart to their stories. Some students comes to school with a heavy burden, that hinders them to focus on their goals to prosper with their studies. You should demonstrate caring attitude to them but still keeping the border that you are their mentor. The teacher must show a positive outlook in life or proactive, keeping and challenging the students to strive better for their future. With our 21st century learners, you must know how to relate well with the students. There are many changes in terms of behavior and students priorities, the effects of social media but as a teacher I want to build a RESPONSIBLE students and teach them the proper discipline, letting them understand what should be their priorities in life. I should never get tired in teaching them, touching their hearts and spreading love to my students. Someday, make a change in this world. In what I have learned in ALS, never Stop loving your students !!!

  24. HOW CAN ONE BE AN EFFECTIVE EDUCATION MANAGER?

  25. As an affective teacher of 21st century, we must more determined to touch the heart of every student. We need to boost their confidence, know their background in order to handle them properly and the learners must be in the right track..
    Our committment as a teacher has a big impact to every student even if we didn’t handle them…. Values is rare right now. We need to advocate that good values must be impart to every lesson that we are being taught…
    Learners look for a teacher whose a passion for teaching, dedicated and have concern for them.. We need to evaluate our student.. look for the family background…. act as a second mother for them. Most of the student drop because of the family issues, financial problem far from school, child labor… Through Alternative Learning System this student can continue their studies. There is a lot of ways how the student can have a LIFE LONG LEARNING through ALS.

    The Education for All(EFA) tend to target that most of the learners must be get the proper schooling that no child must be left behind…
    As a classroom teacher/adviser, I promulgate to myself to become an inspiration for them.. a role model… for three years as teacher… I have a big impact to each my student… that’s why they called me “Madam Bertud”….. I felt sad when my student didn’t want to continue their studies… I found out that parents mislead their child.. they are the one forced to drop out them.. that scenario has a big impact for me that’s why ALS was a big help to me… I told my students to continue their studies even they are not part of the regular program.. I’m happy I see them the courage to finish their studies… one thing to do… educate the parents… in the near future… their child will be the one who help them the dream that they want in life….

    Always treat our student as a second family, treat them as brother or sister… be a mother to them , a mentor and one thing never surrender for being a TEACHER…. later we will see them successful to their chosen field….

  26. We don’t need to be an ALS teacher to do something…
    Teaching is a vocation… it is GOD who called me here, to teach. To help the students understand and appreciate themselves as unique individual who accept complete responsibility for their thoughts, feelings and actions. To teach is to help the child become more human.
    Being a teacher is a mission, which means the task to mold the young heart and mind is entrusted to us. We are expected to contribute to the betterment of this world in our unique way.
    We don’t need to be an ALS coach/teacher to make difference.
    I will never stop here…

  27. HOW CAN YOU BE AN “AFFECTIVE” MANAGER?
    By: Anna Marie Patajo-Cabansag

    HEART is all we need to change what is needed to be changed. Sometimes the mind is not enough to make the right decision. We need to use our heart to feel what others need.
    Being a teacher, we need to be sensitive enough with the needs our students. We should know by heart what they want and what they really need. Teachers should open themselves for their students and be in their shoes. We should not only masters of our classrooms moreover we should be a friend to them whom they can confide with.
    Big dreams come from small beginnings. We can definitely apply this quote in our very own classroom. Before we dream of changing the world, we should start with our students. Students are more comfortable if they know that their teacher understand them and know who they really are. Students do not pretend to be somebody if they know that their teacher is also their friend.
    Do not just hear the students, LISTEN to them. Do not just look at them, SEE them. Do not just talk to them, CONVERSE with them. Touching their inner emotions will create harmonious relationship between you and your students.
    If we open our hearts to our students, everything else will follow. Our commitment and dedication will grow stronger. Our hunger for quality education will become deeper.
    Our country does not only need effective classroom manager but moreover AFFECTIVE classroom manager who touches the hearts of the students.

  28. Affective teaching is the democratic act of students and teachers learning together in a caring, conscious, curious and committed way. It is teaching by respecting our students, listening to them and communicating with them affectively. An affective teacher is an effective teacher.

  29. It is a fact that the teacher is one of the most influential person in the world. If we stay in our profession for at least 15-20 years, we can influenced thousands of people, perhaps million. This is my rough estimation. But the point is, we are influential person. We teach young minds, minds that are inexperienced, unstable, a mind that are seeking to follow an example to elevate their life. If we are aware of this, we will be more careful on executing our noble vocation. We will try all the best we can to help OUR YOUNG PEOPLE to be the builder of this great nation. We are all related on building our nation. Let me share my encounter to my grade five teacher, she was my adviser and teacher in Science. As a student, i was active in recitation. One day I heard from her talking to another teacher and boasting about my performance. I cannot forget the word. Ah, yan si June, matalino ang batang iyan.” That words motivate me to study more and gave me the self-esteem. I supposed that affirming the strength of our youth wether they are in a formal and out of school will help them to see that they have the ability to improve and to be successful in life. Therefore, let us be generous to affirm the strength of our youth and help them to improve more. Improve pa more. he.he.he.

  30. HOW CAN YOU BE AN EFFECTIVE MANAGER?
    There are 7 keys on how to become effective managers according to Peter Economy. I hope that these 7 keys will help every one of us in our position as managers of our classroom or whatever office we belong.
    1. Delegate Wisely
    The key to management success is to learn to effectively delegate both the responsibility for completing assignments and the authority required to get things done.
    2. Set Goals
    Every employee needs goals to strive for. Not only do goals give employees direction and purpose, but they ensure that your employees are working towards the overall organizational goals. Set specific and measurable goals with your employees, and then regularly monitor their progress toward achieving them.
    3. Communicate
    Far too many managers communicate far too little. It’s often difficult for busy business owners and executives to keep their employees up-to-date on the latest organizational news. Regardless, you must make every effort to get employees the information they need to do their jobs quickly and efficiently.
    4. Make Time for Employees
    Above all, managing is a people job. When an employee needs to talk with you–whatever the reason–make sure that you set aside the time to do so. Put your work aside for a moment, put down your smartphone, and focus on the person standing in front of you.

    5. Recognize Achievements
    Every employee wants to do a good job. And when they do a good job, employees want recognition from their bosses. Unfortunately, few bosses do much in the way of recognizing and rewarding employees for a job well done.

    6. Think About Lasting Solutions
    No matter how difficult the problem, there is always a quick solution, and entrepreneurs are happiest when they are devising solutions to problems. The trouble is that, in our zeal to fix things quickly and move on to the next fire, we often overlook the lasting solution that may take longer to develop. Although it’s more fun to be a fire-fighter, the next time you have a problem to solve in your organization, deal with the cause of the problem instead of simply treating the symptoms.
    7. Don’t Take It Too Seriously
    Without a doubt, owning a company is serious business. Products and services must be sold and delivered, and money must be made. Despite the gravity of these responsibilities, successful managers make their organizations fun places to work. Instead of having employees who look for every possible reason to call in sick or to arrive to work late or go home early, managers whose organizations have fun end up with an energized workforce that works hard and plays hard.

  31. As a 21st century manager in an educational institution should be apply the context of Total Quality Management (TQM) which is have a principle of students/customer satisfaction, commitment and involvement of all staff as well as the teacher, good leadership, continues learning and innovation that we acquire it as a teacher through seminar and training’s and apply it in a classroom settings.

    For me as teacher in order to be an effective manager in a classroom settings, I would be a student centered that the student teach them how to learn by their own and let them to discover their own skill. It also know them not only inside of the classroom but also know them psychologically, their problem, feelings, history and family background so that you can understand their behavior and actions and help them to overcome all their problem and show them that you are not only a teacher but also a second parent.

    There is no best strategy at all times. The environment is always subject for change. As a manager/teacher you should be flexible so that you can immediately adjust in any situation if needed. Just like the culture of generation of youth today. Be a wise 21st century manager! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  34. An affective ALS educator is the one who has the heart to serve. Someone who has the passion to extend service to others amidst of all odds that might happen. Everyone of us has a potential and capability to shape every child. By just looking around us in our environment, there are lots of children who are not yet reached out by the government. Though the DepEd as an agency of the government has the highest budgetary allocation as mandated in the Constitution,still education is not accessible to all especially those who live in the far-flung areas. Power and Corruption is the main reason why those budget which are supposed to be utilized by the needy children are gone. The corrupt politicians have put it on their own pocket.

    Now the generous heart of a teacher is here to do something to bridge the gap between the government and the destitute. We, the educators, with loving hearts to extends Literacy Program to children are now making solutions-to extends services that the future generations to become rightful receiver of the so-called “quality education”.

    This is my legacy. As long as I live, I will continuously conduct regular Community Service to Indigenous People of the Sierra Madre located specifically to Nakar, Quezon. I know that there are lots of people like to who has the the generous heart – a good Samaritan so to speak.

    I also believe in God’s power to bless my good intentions.

    “Boss” “Chief” “Sir” A manager by any other name still smells like a manager. (Opps! That does not quite sound right!) Managers handle people, events, materials and time. Teachers are managers. This is the teacher’s first and most challenging role. Classroom management is probably the most common cause for a first year teacher becoming frustrated and turning to a new field of endeavor. It is also accounts for second, third and fourth-year teachers leaving education. Classroom management is perhaps the least significant role of the teacher but it is the role that allows teachers to teach. Being a manager stinks, but it is necessary to survive as a teacher.

    Routine, routine, routine– this is what makes teachers successful and allow teachers the chance to teach. The quicker the routine is established, the quicker the teacher can do the task they most enjoy- teaching. Most teachers have heard the adage: “Don’t smile until Thanksgiving!” That may be a little extreme, but the idea is important. Teachers must begin the year somewhat businesslike. This is the time to establish the needed routines. Every grade level has different routines that will need to be established. There are some common threads: entering the classroom, leaving the classroom, fire drill directions and conduct, when student conversation is allowed, where books are expected to be, when students can leave their seat, and student classroom conduct. Each teacher is different. Each teacher has to establish their own individual routines that they feel comfortable enforcing. Beginning teachers have a tendency to not establish routine. In which case, the students will establish routines. Once a routine is established, it becomes very difficult to change. Experienced teachers have learned this the hard way and will usually establish their classroom routines in the first few weeks. No smiling until the routine is established!

    How do you establish routines? There are probably as ways as there are teachers. However, there are some common practices. The first few weeks of school are critical. It is during this time that the routines, acceptable or not, are established. A teacher will greet the students at the door on the first day and begin to set the pattern for students entering the classroom. Teachers need to start the day or class in the same manner. For example, a set of directions on the board for students to start a task, a quick quiz, a check that texts are open to a certain page or simply children sitting quietly in their seats. (Quiet is always good to start the day). Routines must start from day one. The teacher must be very watchful in these early weeks for violations of routine. A student stands to sharpen a pencil during a class activity. The teacher gently reminds the student that pencils are sharpened at such-and-such time. This not only reminds that student but also reinforces routine to the entire class. The “old guard” refers to this as the test. Students are testing the teacher. It is usually not a conscious act, although there might be some teachers that disagree. The routine is being tested. Gentle reminders now establish routine and avoid confrontations later. Vigilant efforts by the teacher in these first few weeks are rewarded by established routines that avoid problems for the rest of the year.

    We will examine the four realms of classroom management: materials, events, time and people. These are grouped in order of management difficulty from easiest to most difficult. Regardless of grade level, teachers are faced with management tasks. How well the teacher deals with these tasks often determines how Management of time is crucial to teacher survival. Awareness of time is needed to accomplish a planned activity. Too much time and the plan is without a conclu

  36. “A teacher affects eternity: he cannot tell where his influence stops”.
    Henry Brooks Adam

    What kind of a legacy or inheritance do I plan to leave behind?

    One thing is certain: If I don’t turn that hope or dream into a tangible, clear, written goal, there is a high probability that I won’t succeed.
    But I do know of one type of legacy that is always, always, always worth leaving!

    That is a legacy of knowledge!

    This legacy is transferred not at death but throughout the life of the benefactor.

    The mode of transference is TEACHING.

    George Bernard Shaw may have succeeded in coming across as a great wit when he wrote, “He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.” But Shaw was as wrong as he was eloquent.

    Then, I will teach them with all my heart.
