    Coordinator comes and sits in my lecture at the back of the class and this makes me conscious while teaching

    I have been recently appointed in a private school. My Coordinator tries to check on me by sitting at the back of the room while I am teaching. This makes me conscious and I am unable to concentrate on my lecture. What can be the best method to improve this part of my nature?

    Hi,

    It is really good to see that instead of whining and complaining against the coordinator, who comes and sits at the back of your class to observe you, you are looking forward to bring a change in your personality. It shows your positive attitude towards life.
    My friend, as you are new to the institution, you will have to remain under observation until you prove yourself as an established teacher.

    Now, what you can do is forget that someone is observing you and your ways of teaching, rather get engrossed in your job so much that this thought could never disturb you.

    Be very sure about your teaching content and if required practise in advance so that you do not lose confidence in terms of teaching materials. Once you are thorough of your lessons, you would automatically gain confidence and then even the presence of a coordinator would not deter you or make you conscious while teaching.

    Believe in yourself and practise till you attain perfection in your field.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    This is nothing unusual ! Coordinator may come and sit at the back with the students in order to check the quality of your teaching. The procedure is common in private schools where teachers are selected on the basis of interview and not by written test as in case of Govt. schools. Private schools want to ensure good quality teaching to the students, that is why they adopt such measure. You have to learn to handle such situation. Firstly, you have to come to class after doing your own homework. Your own home work will include selection topics to be discussed in class, revision on the entire matter before teaching, sorting out some predictable questions, preparation of any extra note if required. Your mind should be prepared to face any question from the students. If you are confident enough that you can face any question, then things will be automatically easier for you. When you are teaching concentrate on the topic rather than putting attention to the coordinator sitting at the back. If you consider him/her just as another student, then I believe, things will be much easier for you!

    Hi,
    According to me coordinator also doing his/her job, by observing you in class. So in this case you also need to do one thing:
    1. If you have fear regarding you coordinator then just thing that he is also a student and he is very notorious back bencher. Now from this thinking start your lecture. I am pretty confident that when your mind treat him as back bencher student then you do not have any problem in teaching.
    So in this manner you play your job responsibility and you coordinator also do his job. And also he give your positive feedback because his/her job is to observe the person.
    I think my suggestion helps you.

    Hello friend,
    Its a good opportunity for you that your coordinator comes and sit in your class rather than hearing the complain about you. You should be confident while teaching, this would also generate more expertise in you while teaching.
    But if you think that this is making you uncomfortable then you should forget about few minutes that he is your coordinator and rather take him as a general student. In this way you can teach the class in the normal way as you teach it to other student. So be confident and do not let his presence to deteriorate in your confidence level. Its your best chance to prove yourself.
    Thank You!!!

    Yes,you can improve your teaching if the coordinators are present in your class.you try to give the students good descriptions about the subject and for getting more content you have to read a lot of book while reading books you can get knowledge about several things.you can be disciplined.You can deliver your speech in big seminars before legends with out any fear and hesitation.It improves your body language and personality.If you think that you are not able to concentrate on your work then you don't thinks about the coordinators in your class,you will get tensed and your performance will go down so,you should not bother about them you tell the class in such a way the students grasps the topics easily.
    all the best
    thank you

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for being selected for a teacher.Being a teacher,you must be cautious & conscious while teaching the students.You should also be conscious in general life.If you have confidence on your paper which you can have by having deep knowledge in it,you will not have any problem to teach the students in presence of any one.

    So try to develop your confidence by getting adequate knowledge in the subject concerned.You may ask in person to your coordinator not to sit in the class room while teaching the students,as it causes problem to me.You may ask your coordinator to enquire from your the students about my teaching level & in case of any complaints,I may be reported & guided so that I could further improve my teaching level.

    Hope you will success in convincing your coordinator & developing your confidence level of teaching.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Dear you are absolutely right that coordinator is trying to check your knowledge, attitude, behavior and teaching skills in the school because he has appointed you and paying enough for the job so they expect something better from your side and that is why they selected you because you deserve that in thinking of the coordinator and secondly he has the right to sit and check your efficiency and skills of teaching because he care about the reputation and result of the school that is why he want some good and well educated teachers who could suggest and tell good ways to the student to develop their career more in various sectors and it shows he is careful about the future of the students because whatever you will teach to them followed by the students so let them check about it

    If you loose your confidence and concentration while lecture then you should not worry because this will be continue for few days and not more than 7 days because you are recently appointed in that school so you are new one and if you haven't ever teach anywhere in any school then they will keep a sharp eye on you for betterment of the school but you should not get unconfident because you are a teacher and you should believe in yourself that no one can teach better than you and if you will loose confidence that means you do not trust that you are right in teaching whatever you mention in the class so first have faith in yourself that anyone can check in the world but you will be right on the lecture that you give in the class so just think about it

    You should make your knowledge sure at all the parts because until you will clear doubts over your knowledge you can never earn confidence while giving lecture so make your knowledge sure then give lecture and add some new things and technique in your teaching so you could impress coordinator and for that you should meet a person who is senior than you in teaching and get some good skills that how to present in the class that could impress everyone so you will get support and coordinator will be satisfied on your lecture

    All the best
