BE 'THAT' TEACHER

Be ‘that’ teacher that excites and inspires
Be ‘that’ teacher that makes a difference
Be ‘that’ teacher they always remember

At Voyager we like to encourage all our teachers travelling with us to #BeThatTeacher - to be the one… to be the one that students always remember – and of course, for the right reasons!

It’s a known fact that teachers play an integral part in a students’ educational development and their overall journey into adulthood for many years. Although teaching practices have evolved over time, the big reward of teaching remains seeing your students grow into confident, happy young adults. Nothing comes close to this.

Teachers are heroes
Not only are teacher’s huge influencers - in many cases they are heroes! A role model, someone they respect and aspire to be. It’s a big responsibility, yes!?

If you look to step outside of your comfort zone you can be that hero –and be ‘that’ teacher.

How to impress your students
Do something outside of the ordinary, show them you’re not just all about textbooks and lectures – show them another side of you that they can relate to and look up to.

Our adventure school trips are a perfect way to prove to your students (and yourself) that you can be ‘that’ teacher.

You should also consider our educational and language school trips, we specialise in many subjects and take school all over the world.

Learning outside the classroom, the facts
School trips and in particular, learning outside the classroom should be viewed as a powerful and positive teaching tool that help enhance the social, personal and emotional development of students. Extra stimulation in new environments can be particularly beneficial for getting students excited about Sciences for example.

School trips provide students with the opportunity to enjoy learning outside of the classroom and research has shown that:

  • Expose students to new experiences and you will increase interest and engagement in Science regardless of prior interest in a topic (Kisiel, 2005; Bonderup Dohn, 2011),
  • They also result in affective gains such as more positive feelings toward a topic (Csikszentmihalyi & Hermanson, 1995; Nadelson & Jordan, 2012).

We’ll be providing you with many opportunities to become ‘that’ teacher over the next few months – look out for our photos on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages. If you feel you already qualify - please tag your photos with #BeThatTeacher and we'll post them on our pages!

 

“You’re that teacher, the one who talks to us like we’re adults - the one who always helps us no matter what. You’re the teacher who makes us feel good about ourselves for things that other people don’t even notice. And that’s why you’re the teacher we’ll remember for the rest of lives.”

Alphie Wickers’ students describe how they feel about him.
