ABSTRACT

We all give off vibes, and in the classroom, it’s not hard for students to pick up on the vibes of the teacher. The students notice if teachers are in a good mood or a bad mood. They notice if they are enjoying the day or if the day seems like drudgery. They notice when the teacher is exasperated. And make no mistake, the energy projected by the teacher will affect the energy that the students bring to the lesson. The positive energy of the teacher is the single most important factor in determining the climate of the classroom. When teachers realize their own attitude affects the motivation of their students, it can be a game changer.
