I totally disagree with this proverb. If I do not have something, it is me who truly feels how much I need it. I do not talk about feelings only, but knowledge and skills as well. As a teacher, I am not always good at teaching all areas of English language. When I recognize my disability or lack, I work hard to improve that and prove to myself that I can do it.
It is not the degree of education you have got that matters, but your passion and desire for lifelong learning and updating your knowledge regularly. As a result of the rapid changes in our life maybe because of the technology revolution, we must equip ourselves with many skills that are urgent in the 21st century. I know you are so busy and have no enough time to spend in a face-to-face training for example. Actually, I have the same problem. As a teacher, I have to upgrade my ways of teaching every year under the pressure of my limited time.
Connecting to other educators online and listening to their experiences, tips, and successful practices is my primary pathway to lifelong learning and improving my teaching skills. Teacher Entrepreneurship Week held on August 24-27, 2015 is a great opportunity for teachers to update their expertise and try to cope up with the most recent trends of teaching and learning.
In case you missed this event, here is all the stuff recorded on YouTube.

It is a nonstop activity! Once you taste it, you never stop doing it on a daily basis. I talk about following people and learning from them via Twitter. When I share my passion for using microblogging (i.e., tweeting), I notice that people don’t feel comfortable and they think it is a useless service. I didn’t ask them why? But, they maybe have no any idea about how to get started.
Are you interested in bringing life into your classrooms and motivate your students to learn and develop their skills in a different way? It is not an easy job I know, but you can do it. In case you missed the online event held by the British Council Seminar Serieson Wednesday 24 June, 2015, don’t worry you can watch it now and enjoy all the stuff shared by really creative people like Alan Maley, Marisa Constantinides, Malu Sciamarelli, Nik Peachey and more.
Take a journey through my minds eye, walk with me as I explore the shore lines of Jamaica, float away with me as I write my way into self discovery. Poems, short stories and personal thoughts about life.
